MACRO Problem

I have defined a macro and have encountered a problem using it. Below is the macro I have defined.

#define BULLET PlaySound("bullet.wav",NULL,SND_FILENAME|SND_ASYNC)

I then try to use it and is successful.

void main()
    BULLET; // run the macro

The above works and I heard the sound of one bullet.
However, when I tried to run the macro twice consecutively, it is unsuccessful.

void main()
    BULLET; // run macro
    BULLET; // another time

I expect to hear two bullets sound but I only hear one bullet sound.

This has nothing to do with macros, the problem occurs if you do



the problem is that you try to start 2nd sound before the first one has finsihed.  Don't play asynchronously or place a wait between the two attempts to play.
