sorry for not showing up earlier, kinda busy times here...
Perhaps whatever is invalid here is plain caught in Galaxy (or not called). I will verify that.

My best guess is that is is related to a music transition gets scheduled while another transition is currently running.

it's a bit odd, latest build shows an entirely different scenario:

Code

If its not too late, tell me please one thing - what is the problem with crackling sound in Naval Base track? Its a common problem with Unreal engine, but it looks like this track was corrupted from the beginning, this crackling sound can be heard EVEN ON YOUTUBE!
https://youtu.be/2yDVM77lGlM?t=1h10m25s

I became a crackling sound-paranoid in any game because of this.

It's in the samples themselves. The end of the sample loops abruptly and this causes crackling.
Sample 8 is a good example in Naval Base.
  

You must construct additional pylons.

Possible OpenAL related bug: OGG music in Deus Ex mods such as Nihilum & The Nameless Mod resets volume when the song track is reset (whether it's via quickloading or new level loading). The only fix is to go into the Sound menu, which sets the music back to the set volume.

Another small thing I wanted to point out; CD Audio music doesn't work (was testing it out with an old Matrix soundtrack). Seems to work with Galaxy Audio though.

CD Audio isn't targeted with ALAudio, just to much effort for a thing nearly no one ever uses. There are no plans to integrate it.

Since this doesn't happen in Revision I'm almost certain it's due the original DXOgg being hardcoded to use GalaxyDrv for volume changes, something han changed for us. So not an AlAudio issue.

Iirc this was just some ini value beeing read during startup, not sure if that would cause all the hastle.

Using the very latest version on this forum I get this error when launching the GOG version of Deus EX GOTY:

Critical Error
'Cant find file for package 'ALAudio'
History: UObject::SafeLoadError <- UObject::StaticLoadClass <- UEngine::InitAudio <- UGameEngine::Init <- XGameEngineExt::Init <- DDeusExGameEngine::Init <- InitEngine

On my retro Windows XP SP3 machine with Voodoo5 and Xfi sound.

Oddly though the ALAudio patch on this forum for Unreal 226 works fine on this machine, no problems...

Hope someone can help Smiley Thx!
