#7649 new feature request

ALL: visible warning when CD music missing

win32 0.12.0pre; MI1 CD version

Support questions about no music with CD Audio come up quite frequently on the forum; there's even a FAQ entry for them.

When playing a game with the mp3/ogg/flac files missing there is no error message in the console by default (-d1 shows the error, at least for MI1 CD)

In my opinion it would be more user-friendly to make this a warning which is on by default and thus displayed even when no debuglevel is specified.

(currently, using -d1 it displays: "AudioStream: Could not open compressed AudioFile track17")

The current GUI warning displayed at startup, is limited to Windows only. And I don't think it would be viable to add specific CD detection code for each port.

CD Audio support in several games is optional, so a GUI warning every time a track is played would not be helpful.

Having a popup at the launch makes sense and is the most user-friendly way to do it. I think the major PC and smartphone versions, at the very least, should have the popup that the Windows NT version does, maybe with a per-game option to disable it in the "engine" tab.
