Hello people !
I have been inactive with the game producing for a long time and thought it was time to come back !
On the way i encountered a problem that i also had with my last rts gams:
The midi music !
It seems to lag everytime it changes midi track or in the start of a level.
Do you have any idéas?
No sir, it does that to me too and always has. That lag I hear is the time it takes to load the midi's information so it can play it. Unfortunately it also has a lag between loops as well and almost always cuts off the first note of the song from the 2nd loop onward.
If there's a way to somehow preload these things that might help with your intial lag problems.

I think the only worthwhile solution is to have your music in a different format (even converting a midi file to MP3 even though that goes against the whole idea of Midi) and using a plugin to play it.
