Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Stop sounds from overlapping

I'm currently working on a game where you play various songs that are randomly chosen from a list by clicking the mouse button. However, playing songs in quick succession before they end causes them to overlap. How do you set the audio so that it stops whatever song is currently playing before starting a new one?

If you use an AudioComponent to play the audio, you can stop it and change the sound you want it to play, that way it'll never overlap sounds ;)

Use a sound concurrency class.
