I wrote the below program to set up and play the game breakout as an assignment for Stanford's CS106 programming class. I wrote it on my old mac running OSX 10.6.8, with the version of Eclipse JDK that works on that machine. When I tested it back on the mac, the program worked normally. But now I am using a Windows 8.1 computer with the corresponding version of eclipse, and when I test the program again, the sound effect I coded does not play. I get the following error message in console when the ball hits the paddle or brick, which previously caused the sound clip to play.
Exception in thread "Thread-4" java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Requested value -120.0 smaller than allowable minimum value -80.0.
at javax.sound.sampled.FloatControl.setValue(Unknown Source)
at com.sun.media.sound.DirectAudioDevice$DirectDL$Gain.setValue(Unknown Source)
at java.lang.Thread.run(Unknown Source)
I have no idea what the values it refers to could mean, or why my code would request a value below the min. I am using the mediatools class that is part of the ACM libraries we are required to use for the class to play the sound in question, found here: http://cs.stanford.edu/people/eroberts/jtf/rationale/UtilPackage.html#MediaTools
I went ahead and tested all parts of the program and the missing sound effect is the only problem. Here is my complete code:
