Sounding good to me!

So, after following the link from yesterday’s post, I put the following call in, just after main().

System.setProperty("j3d.audiodevice", "com.sun.j3d.audioengines.javasound.JavaSoundMixer");

It all compiles fine and runs! I get the following warning:

***
*** WARNING: JavaSoundMixer: Streaming (uncached) audio not implemented
***

But since at this point I’m only interested in looping sounds anyway, this should be just fine. Nothing like a 13 year old code base that still works. A toast to Sun.
And we get 3D graphics to boot:

Now I need to get the Dolby unit installed and running, and hook up the amp to my collection of tactile transducers. Tomorrow?
