Hi!

I used to be called Megadog, but unfortunately, due to foreseen circumstances, I can't access it anymore. I have since returned back to this never really bustling haven, to eke out a merge existence by trying to make a DMod before leaving again.

But think if there's like a simple 10 second MIDI in some D-Mod with the purpose of only playing once when you do something specific. Then that 10 second MIDI will be in an endless annoying loop until you come across the next MIDI in the game. It could potentially ruin a major part of the experience of playing that D-Mod.

Furthermore, there might be a cutscene that is specifically timed so that something happens when the MIDI ends, to create atmosphere. If the MIDI just starts again, that would ruin the whole thing.


I can't think of any D-Mods that DO that though. The only D-Mod that I can think of that even tries to use timing to a song directly is Revolution, and it screws it up if you speed through the dialogue at all by setting Death's lines out of sync with the song. A flag that can be set to disable it might not be a bad idea (though I agree that wav's might be a better solution), but having looping be the default seems like a good idea.
