DialogAction and WAV-Files: CTD when Text is empty

DialogAction and InstructorDialogAction CTD with WAV but empty Text since SU5

CTD:

<SimMission.DialogAction InstanceId="{B3376C8F-FB2B-41FD-B8D4-8CC67DD397E6}">
    <Descr>DiaPOI1Exit</Descr>
    <Text></Text>
    <SoundFileName>SayHello.wav</SoundFileName>
    <DelaySeconds>2.000</DelaySeconds>
</SimMission.DialogAction>

<SimMission.DialogAction InstanceId="{B3376C8F-FB2B-41FD-B8D4-8CC67DD397E6}">
    <Descr>DiaPOI1Exit</Descr>
    <Text/>
    <SoundFileName>SayHello.wav</SoundFileName>
    <DelaySeconds>2.000</DelaySeconds>
</SimMission.DialogAction>

<SimMission.DialogAction InstanceId="{B3376C8F-FB2B-41FD-B8D4-8CC67DD397E6}">
    <Descr>DiaPOI1Exit</Descr>
    <SoundFileName>SayHello.wav</SoundFileName>
    <DelaySeconds>2.000</DelaySeconds>
</SimMission.DialogAction>

<SimMission.DialogAction InstanceId="{B3376C8F-FB2B-41FD-B8D4-8CC67DD397E6}">
    <Descr>DiaPOI1Exit</Descr>
    <Text>       </Text>
    <SoundFileName>SayHello.wav</SoundFileName>
    <DelaySeconds>2.000</DelaySeconds>
</SimMission.DialogAction


Working:

<SimMission.DialogAction InstanceId="{B3376C8F-FB2B-41FD-B8D4-8CC67DD397E6}">
    <Descr>DiaPOI1Exit</Descr>
    <Text>Fly somewhere.</Text>
    <SoundFileName>SayHello.wav</SoundFileName>
    <DelaySeconds>2.000</DelaySeconds>
</SimMission.DialogAction>


Is this by design since SU5? Any posibility to use soundfiles without text (because of the subtitles)?

Have you tried these?

<OneShotSoundAction InstanceID="{}">
    <SoundFileName>SayHello.wav</SoundFileName>
</OneShotSoundAction>
<PlayListAction InstanceID="{}">
    <PlayListItem>
        <SoundFileName>SayHello.wav</SoundFileName>
    </PlayListItem>
</PlayListAction>

Thanks for reply. I guess OneShotSoundAction is only a OneShot and not a repeating if event happnes more than one time. (i.e. from a PropertyTrigger).


About PlayListAction I understand them more as a background music playlist, but will try in a couple of days. What's happen if there is a music playlist? Will the former one continue if trigger is firing?
