Yesterday was a bad day. Nothing worked, even the backup didn’t work anymore. When I pressed the pause button, the current scene was stopped, but suddenly all visited regions started to play… When I “unpaused” the current scene went on and all other audio was stopped.

I left it in the background for debug purposes, but won’t be visible in the final version. Also the standarized navigation bar on the top is not anymore there. It’s replaced now […]
