Hi Guys

 I managed to get all my buttons work correctly. now i need some help with sound/music. I need the title music to play at the start of my project frames 1-28 where my first bit of frame by frame animation runs with it. But when I test project the animation runs ok but no music. But when i press button to go to another part of the project and return to home page the animation plays ok again and the music to but only for the duration of the short  animation. I need the music the keep playing in that area 1/28 until the user press a button and move on.

Help! AlanYScreenshot 2023-08-03 134220.png

put a stop() in your first frame and an intro message along with a button/movieclip to click to trigger your timeline to play().

 

(user's have to interact with browser files to permit sound to play.)

Hi I got the start button working ok.plays the animation to frame 28 and stop thats what I want. But I would like to have the musicto play at the same time and keep it confined inbetween frames 1 and 28 if that is possible!

it would be easier for you to add your start button to frame 1 and then put your sound on frame 2.

 

but you can start your sound with code on frame 1, if that's what you want to do.

That works to keep the sound in 1-28 but the sound now stops playing at 28. Would like the music to keep playing the hole music at 28 until the user clicks another button to take them out of that area.

yes, those are the sound functions.  but you don't want to call start_soundF() until you want the sound to start and you don't call stop_soundF() until you want the sound to stop.

 

double click the linkage field > enter soundId (uppercase i, 9th letter in alphabet)

the listener function call and function name don't match. ie, 

 

fl_ClickToGoToAndStopAtFrame_6

 

is not the same as

 

fl_ClickToGoToAndStopAtFrame6

 

ie, change one of them so they match.

Hi Not exactly what I am looking for. My project starts automatically with the frame by frame animation and the cursor start frame one and stops at frame 28. I would like for the music to play at the same time but to be kept between frames 1-28 and to continue to play untill the user clicks a button that will take them out of the area. The music is quite lengthy but I need it to only play in that area 1-28 frames

yes. use event for its sync property and, if started at frame 1, it will play in its entirety even if you stop at frame 1 ( or 28).

assign your sound a linkage id (in your animate library).

 

// then create your sound instance
var sound1 = createjs.Sound.createInstance("soundId");  // eg, if linkage id = soundId

 

to start your sound call play_soundF()

to stop your sound call stop_soundF()


function play_soundF(){
sound1.play();

}

function stop_soundF(){

createjs.Sound.stop();

}
