Big Box seems to want to keep playing the same song

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I put a bunch of custom music into the Music/Background folder for Big Box to play but it seems to want to keep coming back to the same song.

It will usually play the same song when Big Box is first started and maybe play another song after but will keep cycling back to the same song and then usually looping it.

Any idea how I can get around this or what's causing it? I have over 100 songs in the folder.

Thanks!

I got similar issue also, the first song Big Box will play will always be random, but the second song will always be the same and will loop forever... really weird

Same here. Started happening a couple updates ago, tried everything, retitling, re numbering, deleting all artist info, putting them each in individual folders, reinstalled everything. Iunno man just ended up finding a 4 hour long track to do the job till it's fixed I guess

I've been having this problem for a while, and have made several threads about it. No idea why nobody has addressed it yet. Sucks because I am using mine like an Arcade jukebox with over 1000 songs and no matter what after playing a game it loops back, negating 90% of the music :(

I am having the same issue as well. Getting really sick of hearing the same song, lol.

I wonder if this is an isolated issue or a universal one with BigBox. It's odd that more people haven't complained about this.

Bump

Any resolution or upcoming updates to resolve this given it seems like a pretty widespread issue? 

I recently setup BigBox  9.10 and get this too. Whether shuffle is enabled or not it plays first song and repeats second song indefinitely. Sometimes if I do not scroll through categories/platforms/playlists at all will seem to randomly not repeat but seems to start repeating once I start browsing through BigBox. 

Edit: What appears to allow next mp3 file to play is to listen to an entire mp3 file within a single category/platform/playlist without touching BigBox. If you browse around then current mp3 file repeats. I have tried switching on and off specific background music option for Categories/Platforms/Playlists and this does not help. All my music is placed in the root directory of the background music folder.

Also Bump.

I messaged with Jason a while back, and he tried to help figure out the issue. I showed him my folder tree, and he was kind of stumped and unable to reproduce it on his end. It's weird that it doesn't seem to affect everyone.
