If I import music into the music folder (which as far as I know streams it), when exactly does the music start downloading?
Is it when the whole project is loaded, or only when the music is first played?
Thank you in advance for any help :)
Well, to run the game offline requires that all resources are downloaded up-front. So it will start downloading the entire game the first time it's loaded. Therefore music will be downloaded either the first time it's played, or when the first-run offline caching downloads it - whichever comes first.
Thank you for the response :) Is there a way to allow only loading music by choice?
Not right now, since that would necessarily mean the music cannot always play offline.
Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.
Ashley - ok, I understand :) What about loading music from an external file, only of the user chooses.
Would something like this work?
Project files are downloaded for offline use too, for the same reason.
Ashley No problem, thank you for the reply :)
