#2693 Sound Issues - Crashing (d2xxl 1.16.26)


When I launch the application and I am at the home screen the default midi music intro plays but
when it comes to the end of the track it does not repeat and there is silence.

This then causes a number of problems;

1.After the midi music has ended, any selection made from the control panel will cause the
application to hang, further to this, I have no option other than to force quit.

2.While at the home screen, if I have launched into a game before the music has ended I am able
to commence a game, however, once again the music plays for only 1 instance (does not repeat).
In this state I am able to continue playing but with no sounds at all (total silence).
I can create a save but if I then restore from a save it will again hang the application
and having to force quit.

3.I tried disabling the sdl_mixer. This also stopped the music and enabled me to play the level
completely but experienced the same problem as above.

4.If I disable the music via the switch in the d2x.ini I can play a level to the end. I still
have all the sound effects, I can do multiple save and restores, however, upon completing
the level, when it progresses to the next level it actually crashes the application,
it puts it into a blank windowed mode and again having to force quit.

5.I also tried to override the default embedded midi music with my own user specified .ogg
formatted music but the application won't play them as the logs indicate.

6.As I have access to a windows 7 OS running d2x-xl, I tested my music and .ini switch
commands for my user specified music and they worked straight up. I did this to discount
any errors on my part.

7.I have tested the application out on the following OS X versions;
OS X 10.8.4
OS X 10.8.2
OS X 10.7.5

Since coming across D2X-XL a few months ago, I have not yet had the privilege of a
working D2X-XL installation for my Mac OS X.

    My computer specifications are;

    MacBook Pro 15-inch, Early 2011
    OS X 10.8.4
    2.3 GHz 4 Core Intel i7 processor
    500 GB SSD
    8 GB 1333 MHz DDR3
    Intel HD Graphics 3000 512 MB
    1680 x 1050 Display

    I refer to item 3 and need to correct this;

    When I disable the sdl mixer there is no music, but, I "DO" have full sound effects but continue to have the same hanging and crashing issues.
