I'm not talking about ambient noises like birds, wind, etc. I'm talking about the actual songs that play in the background when you're exploring the wilderness, or in a town, etc. The song would only play once and it won't ever loop back to the beginning again until I leave that particular screen.
It's pretty awkward because I play this game at a really slow pace and explore the maps really thoroughly so it's not impossible that for example I will be spending around 20-30 minutes on one screen alone before moving to the next. The music will only be heard for like 30 seconds when I enter the screen and for the next half-hour that I explore the map, there'll be no music at all.
The only exception to this is if I engage in battle; the battle music would play, and if the battle ends, the exploration music would come back... but again, it would only be played once before going silent.
Is this a bug or an intended "feature"? If the latter, is it possible to fix it so the music would loop? The awkard silence of exploring without background music is killing my vibe! D:
