Hi Graham,

Ooo, I really like the substack play sound approach with the
substack being invisible.  That should be a big help!

Thanks,

Rick

If you do, playing immediately stops. If you want to have a sound playing while cards change, then put your player on a card in a substack which is remains open at the card containing the player (the stack doesn't have to be visible).

Just writing into a player in the substack (for example by setting the 'filename' property of a player in it) doesn't open it. If you try to play from an unopened card, the attempt to play will silently fail. If you try the same thing in the IDE, you won't get the failure, presumably because the IDE opens all the substacks in your project without an explicit 'go' from you. Like all "works in the IDE, doesn't work in the standalone" issues, I find it very confusing.
