Q: The app's sounds stutter a little when it's first started
A: The app will load all its sound files into memory when you first launch it. This can take a little time (about 20 seconds on my SSD drive immediately after starting Windows, about 4 seconds the next time I launch Crew Chief). While this is being done the app can still be launched and will work as normal but on some systems there may be some slight delays while it loads sound files that haven't yet been loaded into memory. This is normal. You'll see a message in the console when the background load is complete - something like "Took 19.39s to lazy load remaining message sounds"
