Default Sound causes alice to go bellyside up - 12-09-2009, 05:40 PM

Okay so I have been using Alice for the past semester of school and just recently it decided that it does not want to accept sounds of any format. I only know of .wav and .mp3 being accepted but everytime i try to run a program with a sound in it it crashes and gives me the error message that follows.

Error during simulation.




Alice version: 2.2 6/10/2009



Throwable that caused the error:

java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Requested value 7.9588003 exceeds allowable maximum value 6.0206.

It says there's a value which exceeds a maximum. I think that means it's too high quality for Alice's sound importer to handle. Can your reduce the sampling rate on the sound file?

There no more green.

So dropping the sound quality with something like Audacity should work right? =D

You can use a converter like media-convert.com where you can choose the file format that you want to export your music as and lower the file size.

so simply lowering the bitrate or compressing the .wav or .mp3 is not working. I have even tried to shorten the length of the sound as well. None prevail the value does not change and it continues to crash Alice.
