View Full Version : Loading Screen Music Problems
I need to get a life, nothing but question tonight...sorry guys
When a track is loading up, is it normal that the mp3 gets stuck in a loop when the loading bar reaches the right hand side? I'm thinking of getting an audigy or an x-fi card rather than using the onboard on my shuttle.
In the past before i got my shuttle my other PC had an audigy in it and that solved problems i had in some other games of the time as it off loaded a lot of the audio processing onto the audigy card.
Is a spanking sound card likely to fix the anoying looping audio, or is it an unfixable bug....any of you high ends audio card owners got any input?
Does that to me too when using one core but not when using both cores on the cpu.
Yeah, does it to me on a 3.2GHz P4 with an Audigy 2 card, and also my cousin who I think runs some AMD thingy.
YES TOO ME : p4 3,2 GH 1024 RAM NFORCE6600 256 - BOTH WITH ONBOARD AUDIO CARD AND AN OLD SBPCI512.
so it's crap programming.....
Looks like i'm going to have to bring forward the builing of a monster rig......hmmm dual cores eh....muh hah hah hah hah.
I feel a big dent in my bank account comming.....damnit....
Thanks for your input guys

I have a fix for this at http://forum.rscnet.org/showthread.php?t=241878
It has been documented already that for those of us with hyperthreaded P4's, GTL does not run on both "CPU"s by default, which buggers up at least the loading music and maybe more (forum.rscnet.org/showthread.php?t=236760). I tried the program that sets the affinity to both CPUs that was mentioned at techspot in the previous thread but found that it didn't work for GTL. If you alt-tab out of the game, the CPU affinity is just on CPU 0. This is because a GTL process starts when you run the game, and that has the correct CPU affinity as set by Adron's program, but then the copy protection kills that process and starts another process with the default affinities again.
I modified Adron's program to set the CPU affinity on the proper (second) GTL.exe process. If you alt-tab out of the main game, you will see that, the CPU affinity is set to both CPUs. This little program terminates as soon as it has set the affinity.
In the attachment, I have the program (SetAffinity.exe) as well as a sample shortcut to start the game. Extract both files into the folder where you installed GTL. You will have to modify the shortcut to change "F:\GTLegends\" to the folder where you installed the game in the "Target" and "Start In" fields. You can change the icon too to the icon in GTL.exe if you want.
Any problems or questions, shoot me a mail at firstname.lastname@example.org (I don't check it very often, but I'll try and peek in there from time to time). I hope this helps you - it's saved me the hassle of alt-tabbing out of the game every time.

Thanks Wally, that works a treat and "unless I'm very much mistaken" gave me some extra FPS! :)
