    How to allow you applications to let background music play

    One complaint I often get is that once my app starts music and other background apps making sounds stop playing.

    Go to your app in XCode and find the file Classes\Application\CSoundPlayer.m and the method initWithApp. Once there change the following from ...

    UInt32 sessionCategory=kAudioSessionCategory_SoloAmbientS ound;
    AudioSessionSetProperty(kAudioSessionCategory_Solo AmbientSound, sizeof(sessionCategory), &sessionCategory);

    To:

    UInt32 sessionCategory=kAudioSessionCategory_AmbientSound ;
    AudioSessionSetProperty(kAudioSessionProperty_Audi oCategory, sizeof(sessionCategory), &sessionCategory);

    Now gamers can listen to Spotify and play the latest MMF2 creation.

    There certainly is but it would require more substantial changes in a few places.

    Interesting, thanks for sharing Keith. Please Clickteam, make a new property in MMF so we can easily leverage this.

    Keith, could you let me know either here or PM how to get the music to keep playing when the app is minimized? My Obj-C coder is going around in circles trying to find the answer... It would be highly appreciated if you could.

    Thanks in advance!

    In case you didn't find it yourself, you must remove a space in "Audi oCategory"

    Like this =>

    UInt32 sessionCategory=kAudioSessionCategory_AmbientSound ;
    AudioSessionSetProperty(kAudioSessionProperty_Audi oCategory, sizeof(sessionCategory), &sessionCategory);

    Ho... it seems that the forum put the space by itself... weird.
    Well, you'll remove it in Xcode.
