Ambient music stopping
« on: August 17, 2019, 03:52:36 pm »
I've been using Maximus Arcade for about 10 years and one of my favorite features has been the ambient music in the main screen.  But recently, for some reason, it's stopped working.  It will play for a while just fine and then just...stop.  MA continues to run perfectly, just no more ambiance.  I have to fully exit MA and restart it for music to play again.  I have close to 4000 songs in the ambient music folders, is there a limit or something?  Some folders go deep, like ARTIST\ALBUM\DISK\song.mp3.  Is there a limitation there?  Also, I'm not 100% sure that every file is an mp3, there are probably some m4a's in there.  Is that a problem?  Does MA output a log file anywhere so I could see what it's trying to do when it stops? 

Thanks in advance for your help.
