Jukebox glitches out while flying your jetpack

Magnus S shared this bug 2 years ago
Reported – Awaiting fix

When flying your jetpack near a jukebox it cycles rappidly through the songs and doesn't play any of them. As soon as you land on the same grid it stops and starts playing a random song (probably the one it just cycled through).

Edit: I moved this topic to the public test forum. Please delete

Hello Engineer,


You did not have to move it to public test forum as this is the correct place to have it in.

Are you by chance playing in a world with sounds set to realistic instead of arcade?

In realistic audio this behavior is intended as You are not going to be able to listen to the song, because You are not touching the grid from which it is emanating.

The rapid cycling through could be a bug and is most likely result of the system evaluating the song as not playing, therfore switching to the next track immediately, thinking that the song has ended.


Please respond to this thread with confirmation that it is indeed happening in a world with realistic sounds.


Have a nice day,

Hello,

sorry for the late reply. Yes, it was indeed a world with realistic sounds. So what you describe could actually be the issue.

Could be connected to this, moving away beyond the reach of the jukebox or a sound block set up to play one song causes playback to stop, moving back within the reach of sound causes the file to be played from the start again. The sound block should keep track of the playback position independently of it being played I would think, it doesn’t.

Hello, Engineers!

As it is quite long time from original post, as well as last comment, and seeing the edit about deleting the post... I need to ask - are you still experiencing it nowadays? And if yes, has the steps to reproduce change at all or are they the very same from beginning?

Or should this thread be closed, as written in edit note?

Kind Regards

Hello Ondrej,

I just tested this in the newest version of the game and the bug is still present. I also captured a short video[1] that shows the bug and added instructions on how to reproduce it. Hope that helps.

Greetings Magnus

Here are the instructions from the video description:

In this video you can see a bug regarding the jukebox in Space Engineers. The bug only occurs with realistic sound settings. When playing songs in an unpressurised environment and then activating jetpack, the jukebox can't be heard any more. This is intended with realistic sound. However the jukebox then also starts to loop over all songs in very fast succession. When the player can here the jukebox again by walking on the grid, it plays a random song that was selected during the fast-forwarding. This bug appeared together with the initial introduction of the jukebox in the economy update.
