Additional Comments

Use the beepSound property to change the sound made when the beep command is used.

Value:

The beepSound is either "system" or "internal".

By default, the beepSound property is set to "system".

Comments:

When the beep command is executed, Revolution will make a sound using the method specified by the beepSound property.

If the beepSound is set to "system", the system standard alert sound will be played.

If the beepSound is set to "internal", the PC motherboard speaker will be used (if present).

Note:

Setting the beepSound property only has an effect on the Windows platform. On other platforms the "system" method will be used regardless of its setting.

Important!

If you use beep with beepSound set to "internal" be sure to test your program on the machines you will be running it on. Some Windows machines have faulty drivers for the motherboard speaker which can cause applications using it to crash.
