I make heavy use of sound cues to synchronise sound and
visuals in my cross-platform project. The sound cues are authored
on a PC into WAV files using SoundForge, and the files then
converted to SWAs. I never had any problems with this approach
using Director 10.1 and publishing to Win 32 and PPC. Now, using
Director 11 (on Win XP) and targeting Intel Macs, I find that the
sound cues simply don't work anymore. When the first cue is
reached, the playback hangs for a second or two, before moving on
without executing the action that is attached to the cue.
Subsequent cue points don't even trigger a hiccup anymore.
These issues are specific to the Macs (OS 10.4) - under XP,
the cues are properly recognised. Has anyone else tried cue points
in Director 11 yet?
