For more information:
I changed nothing in the game.
It works well with 1.6 and not with 1.7.

The soundbankfile I use is the one found at

http://java.sun.com/products/java-media/sound/soundbanks.html

I used the deluxe version:

Java 7 replaces the proprietary Beatnik synthesizer with the open source Gervill synthesizer from OpenJDK. This requires soundbanks in SoundFont or DLS format.

It's hidden away in the list of incompatibilities between 6 & 7 - http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/compatibility-417013.html#incompatibilities

Not sure if they've converted the old soundbanks anywhere.

Best wishes, Neil

Thank you for an answer to my problem, I use the default now which works at least,
that has to be the one you mentioned.
It got my game running again  Smiley


I hope I don't find more problems concerning 1.7.  Undecided
