The Forge: More Awesomeness module is an optional module that can be enabled in a Foundry VTT world hosted on The Forge. The module is automatically installed for every user, though it is not automatically enabled by default.
The module fixes issues related to loading audio from our CDN, or content delivery network. Our CDN allows users to easily load asset files regardless of their location around the world. However, there is a bug within Chrome which can result in audio failing to load/play properly when delivered by our CDN.
The module fixes these issues, and allows audio to correctly play within Foundry Virtual Tabletop.
