Partial audio support on mobile browsers
Due to a significant browser restriction, RPG Ambience has so far been unable to play audio on mobile browsers. I just updated the app, however, with a small fix that adds partial support for audio on mobile browsers. While basic playback works as intended, note that this support is purely experimental and there is a severe limitation: only the first track in any given scene will play, and looping is not supported.
For the next version of RPG Ambience, I plan to remove this limitation. (I have a solution in mind, but it’s not as simple to implement as this experimental support.) I also intend to optimize the user interface so that it looks better on mobile devices, especially phones. Finally, I also hope to implement network ambience, to make mobile devices useful not only as standalone players but also as players in a multi-device setup.
For now, partial audio support is the best thing available. If you use RPG Ambience primarily as a soundboard with one-shot sound effects, it might be enough for your purposes.
