so I have this horror game which I want to play vent sounds(like something is crawling in the vent) when you do something incorrectly. however when i try to do this then its playing the start every tick. I think the problem is that I used _process but idk what to change it to.
this is the code:

func _process(delta):
if GlobalPoints.badpoints >= 1 and GlobalPoints.badpoints < 4:
elif GlobalPoints.badpoints == 4:

func playmusic():

func playmusicfast():

So, I assume you just want to play the sound if it’s not already playing, right?

In that case, something like this (using the AudioPlayer reference you show above):

func playmusic():
    if !AudioPlayer.playing:

So, check if it’s already playing. If so, don’t restart it. If not, start it. And, a similar change to the other method…

thanks oyu very much it worked!
