Myrph, unfortunately the only way to get around that problem at the moment is to use the music-less version ( www.thespiritengine.com/Files/TSEBuild0615musicstrip.exe ) or try running it on another PC.

I have tried setting TSE-1 up to run with an updated version of the mod plugin but the bad state of the old game code means that I have created as many problems as I have solved so far.

Bug in version 619 - some weird error in world two after freeing Adrian's soul. Windows blames it on modfusion.cox
The bug repeats; in fact, each time I win two battles or exit area after winning first, the bug occurs, game crashes and some debug-related data is shown. I didn't messed up with savegame and I didn't over-trained my party so that's not the reason. It just happens when I play.

monsoonasiian - I am afraid there is nothing that I can do about such a problem with sound effects, as it is an issue between the underlying MMF 1.5 runtime and your PC. I can only advise trying to find another PC to play on.

YanPL-tse - Was 619 the beta version I put up with the updated version of Modfusion? It is really hard for me to assess how effective these fixes are because I can't recreate the crashes myself on any of my PCs.

The modfusion.cox crashes are rather perplexing. I am wondering whether it is an issue with modern PCs/versions of Windows, because I don't recall the issue ever coming up during testing before the release ( because we sure as hell would have noticed it ) and don't remember many if any reports of this in the year after release. The newest PC I have at home here to test on is almost 4.5 years old itself.

The most up to date version should still be 104, available at http://www.sendspace.com/file/l1lqxb. The other versions in this thread are beta versions where I have been trying to ( remotely ) debug the music issues.
I'm sorry that you've been having trouble with the game. It is hard for me to fix these issues with the limited resources I have at home. Sad

Is it your Vista PC on which you are experiencing the sound effect problems? I have read occasionally of similar Vista sound issues with Eternal Daughter, a popular freeware platformer also written in MMF 1.5

well, my bug is rather kinda not related to OS, since I'm still using w98se. New games are also playable, but i'm not sure about if I've started over again and got to same location i'd got the same bug.

YanPL - I expect that restarting the game would make no difference. You might have to use beta 615 ( www.thespiritengine.com/Files/TSEBuild0615musicstrip.exe ) to get through such sections.
I need to take a look and see whether these crashes happen on all machines and whether they can be avoided by rewriting the code calling the music. It's painful, I cannot bear to look at TSE-1 any more. Wink A lot of playtesting would be required and I don't want to release it as an offical patch until I know that it works properly.

Fun stats: Windows visiters to tse.com ( % of total Windows users ):

XP - 76.7 %
Vista - 10.4 %
2000 - 2.1 %
98 - 1.8 %

There were even 19 hits from Windows CE, which I thought was cool. Very Happy

hooray for w98! it's still most bugless of all releases of windows. Other computers in my home which use XP got some "hacked by godzilla" and spam/trojan/steal/adware viruses, when my old system is not clever enough to run them.

I was wondering if the sound bug is fixed or if it's in the way of getting fixed. This game is nice and I wish to play it with music...

I tried to fix this last year and failed. So much difficult work would be required to try again with no guarentee of success. I would like to try but the time and the willpower are not available to me now. Sad I'm sorry about this.

That is too bad. I really wanted to enjoy this game to its full potential. Afterall, it's rare to see a free independent game with such quality. =(
Guess I'll have to go with the "music-less" version.
