Java!!!!!!!!!!! !!!


« Posted 2005-02-08 06:09:50 »

Hello,

I just tried to use GageSound for background music in a little game. The problem I have is that the music can't be restarted when it has been finished the first time.
Within my method I call periodically the method isRunning() and if it returns true I call the play(..)-Method.
But this doesn't work.  Cry

Should I load the whole file again or am I doing something wrong?

Another problem: If the player dies I call the stop-method to switch background music off. When the game restarts and I call the play()-Method  the music doesn't start at the beginning. It will be continued where I interrupted it.

Please, help.

That should work. Can you post the code you're using?

Here are some code:

1. Loading the song within the constructor of my game

Quote


...

try {
   backsong = MusicEngine.load(this.getClass().getClassLoader().getResource("./sounds/skmini[1].mid"));
 } catch (IOException e) {}
    catch (InvalidMidiDataException e) {}
    catch (MidiUnavailableException e) {}
...





2. Starting the sound with mouseclick

Quote



 
 //MouseListener Methods
 public void mouseClicked(MouseEvent e){

if(e.getButton()==1){
 if(!started){
   started = true;
   startBacksound();
 } else {
        .....
 }
}

   
 }//mouse clicked


//Method called e. g. from MouseListener
public void startBacksound(){
 MusicEngine.play(backsong);
}
 




My game loop is running in its own thread. The music will be checked with this code:

Quote


if(!MusicEngine.isRunning()){
 System.out.println("restart");
 parent.startBacksound();
}




The if-condition works as I get a "restart" written when I try to restart the song, but the music won't be restard.

Regards.

Ralf
