Summary0001465: multiplayer debriefing music problem
DescriptionIn multiplayer campaigns, the failure debriefing music plays even if you can continue. If you can't continue, the average music plays.

(This only happens for multiplayer clients. The server behaves correctly.)

This is caused by clients not receiving the campaign update packet before the music is initialized. The music should not start until after the packet is received.

More testing is needed here. Probably in tandem with karajorma.

Take a look at this.

Where exactly is the debrief music started?


taylor (administrator)

Unless I have missed something in the code, there isn't a single packet to evaluate to determine if all of the goals have been updated or not. Plus this is UDP, with no guarantee that the packet(s) will ever show up, so if we simply wait for something to come over the network then there may be no music playing at all.

One thing it looks like we can do is just start whatever music it starts with, continue to evaluate the goals for any changes and then switch the music if the gaols eval differently. The only other option that I see is to just delay playback of the music for 0000007:0000002-3 seconds, to give more time for the gaol packets to come in, and then start it.

I think that the delay option is probably the cleanest way to do it, and it would only be for clients as well so hosts and single-player wouldn't see any difference.

Should be handled in my next build.
