Sound Help
I have tried importing a sound in, and I have also tried to use the sounds that come with Alice and in both scenarios I get the same error.

I try to make a sound play when the movie starts, and it says "An unknown error has occured"

This is also the detailed error:
Alice version: 2.2 8/1/2009

*****Running World*****
Exception in thread "JMF thread: ( prefetchThread)" java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Requested value 7.9588003 exceeds allowable maximum value 6.0206.
at javax.sound.sampled.FloatControl.setValue(Unknown Source)
at$DirectDL$Gain.setValue(Unknown Source)

Does anyone know of any solution to this?

Not all sound types are accepted on Alice, even if they are imported with no problem. I haven't used sounds in while, but I know that they can cause the game to crash and problems to occur. Try to convert the sound to a lower quality, and if you find a sound file that works in Alice, only use sounds that are of that sound type.

Do you know why I keep getting the error even when I use the sounds that come with Alice?

Its probably because you have already imported the bad sound file. Try deleting the sound file or starting a new world and then use the sounds that come with Alice.
