Answers to Common Problems : READ (UPDATED 1/16/10)
« on: January 21, 2007, 14:12:21 »
Here are some answers to common questions we're presented when people experience problems connecting to Odamex servers:

-------------------------------------------
SOUND/MUSIC IN WINDOWS
Q: The sound and music volumes are both sliding together and I can't turn the music off. How can I fix this?

A: Unfortunately, Odamex's sound library (SDL_Mixer) currently has some issues with midi on certain operating systems, most notably Windows Vista/7. A potential fix to this problem is to go to File > Settings in the launcher and go down to the box that says "Extra command line arguments". In it, type:

-nomusic

Then connect to a game of your choice. This will disable the midi music in Odamex but it should allow you to play with game sounds until a further fix for this bug can be found.
