You can set it to use the old sound engine :P
Yeah, !@#$% that.  The old engine sucks ass.  Half the time, the built-in mp3 system glitches out which results in music being looped that should be stopped.  It has happened to me more times than I care to count.  I don't ever use that trash system anymore, nor should anyone be required to use it.  When I tell an mp3 to stop, I get "mp3 audio device blah blah blah" stuff in the console.  I've looked it up and there are no fixes.  When this occurs, a song that should be stopped continues to loop or worse - it takes the place of a sound effect.  It's not my code, it just does it. 

If it was my code, it should still be doing that glitchy stuff with the new audio engine, but it doesn't.

Just use wav files :P They're larger sure, but it doesn't really affect much outside of filesize.

Yeah, sorry, I don't have the bandwidth to be dealing with .wav formatted songs.  Not everyone has access to dedicated internet(tethering on my phone right now with 15Kbps throttled speed) and the nearest WIFI location is 15 minute drive.  That and it's just a unnecessary waste to force huge .wavs just for some audio system now deprecated by 3 years. :P

Contestants shouldn't have to break their backs for a small stipulation.  I am sure a middle-ground can be met.  Just awaiting what the judges say.

I have a solution if Steve would post it for other GM:S users:
THe sound needs to be saved in a compressed ON DISK format in its properties in GM:S.  Then, the entire game needs to be saved in .zip or Installer format.  This creates the .exe separate from any compressed music/sound files.  The music/sound files are saved in the same location as the .exe.
I assume the game will then load on the fly as needed.  Hence, the issue is worked around!

:D

I'll be working on a puzzle game of sorts using the Gameboy graphics. If someone has a passion for room/puzzle design send me a PM to team up. The bare engine should be ready pretty soon.

lol.

I'm glad you found a solution. If other contestants have issues please let us know (a fuss doesn't have to be started). We are very open to making your games work with the rules we set. If any other contestant is breaking their back over external audio just speak up. No fusses needed.

 I'm very happy with the teasers that have been posted so far and very much look forward to seeing final results!

Honestly though, using GM:S (1.3), I've had no issues with mp3s using the old sound engine :p it's pretty straight forward and works pretty easily. Although your solution to the external audio is neato and avoids the need for the old engine entirely so that's coo~

Do whatever work around you have to to get the file therethere I'm fine with work arounds as long as the file is external.  we provided a small wav as the placeholder,  it shouldn't cause you a million problems.

I don't see what the issue is. You're supposed to problem solvel ike any other programmer, not sit and complain about it. If the new engine doesn't allow external soundfiles, then find an alternative solution. Calm down.

'Cause it's TOP SECRET!!! XD

I've teamed up with Rayo for the design and we're currently determining our scope while I continue programming the engine / needed building blocks.

That's lame.

Could you post what you completed, unless there is still a chance you may enter?

It looked like some cool Goron version of Daddy N' Me, but I never played that game.
It would just be cool to see. c:

As per Gamemaker Studio 1.4 external sound (=old sound engine) has been made obselete.
See: https://yoyogames.com/tech_blog/73

Please advice on how to procede without the option of external sounds.
