This works fine, except that no sound is ever heard from the game. Reported to me by a friend using Firefox on XP Home. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to aforementioned webpage. 2. Select resolution -- large or small does not matter 3. Wait for applet to load all files, including "extra files". When complete, there should be sound, but there is not. Actual Results: Applet successfully loaded, but no sound was heard. Expected Results: There should have been sound. Ordinarily, I would call this a "Normal" bug. However, since this bug is stopping at least one person I know of from switching to Firefox (a great browser, by the way), I have selected "Major" for severity.

I've experimented the same thing c:\Development>java -version java version "1.4.2_04" Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.2_04-b05) Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.2_04-b05, mixed mode)
I have the same problem in Windows 2000 SP4. I'm useing Sun Java and I also get no sound just static.
Yes, I have experienced this too. No sound is loaded on any java applets, not just runescape.
(In reply to comment #0) I have this problem also. I believe it is caused by the way Runescape has its sound. If you view the source of the page, you can see that they make the HTML play an object(the music, and fx) in the Java. I don't think that is needed. I think the Java could play the sound, without having that coding in the HTML.
Yes this is bad I think. Firefox should do something about this! :)
Sorry but there is nothing Firefox can do to get sound to work at the site, see http://www.runescape.com/aff/runescape/faq/techfaq.html. The designers clearly state that sounds will only work using MS Java. Firefox can only use Sun Java. MS has not supplied a Netscape (Firefox) compatable plugin for MS Java and MS Java is no longer getting updated by MS. The designer of the program needs to write the program for Sun Java.

(In reply to comment #10) > If you notice above, note #2 says that this is known by the runescape team and > they are planning on fixing it.. If you notice comment 9, I say the exact same thing as you did without crossposting entire comments. In any case, this is a tech evangelism bug, so it should remain open for as long as it takes for the problem to be resolved.

(In reply to comment #10) > ------- Additional Comments From firstname.lastname@example.org 2005-04-04 01:26 PDT ------- > Ok, there are multiple DIFFERENT bugs being reported here, and very confusing. > Only 1 of them is a bug in firefox. Let me clarify May be the sound problem is not a Firefox's bug, but I think Firefox should still work on the problem and add new functions to "document.app" class and let HTML play MIDI music. I am saying this because Firefox has been trying so hard to persuade more and more users to use it by making it compatible to explorer (Importing bookmarks and stuffs). Ignoring this MIDI problem may make some people abandant Firfox, when people start to use back IE. I am just saying, that improvement is always good. If I am the programmer who write Firefox, I would be happy to see it, in any way, better then all other browers. I like Firefox very much and so I hope it improve.
This has been fixed by the Runescape team today! Hooray :)
