Hi I am excited to learn Monkey and yes there have been issues already
trying to get this setup -- but with just the few posts so far was able to
get windows build working by using the TDM-GCC compiler suggested
vice Windows Express 2013 issues. Hopefully will figure out what the
issue is there.

The other problem was the openAL32.dll link was broken . Did get a post that
pro had a al installer the gwf directory and I tried that .. DLL is there but still
no sound --

Try running html5 app and app opens and when I select options states seem to be
changing as expected but still no sound

Not sure where to look

Any Ideas -- sound from my pc for windows works.

Which browser and audio format are you using? For HTML5 openAL has nothing to do with it but the browser and its support of audio formats. Do you run your own script or did you try the audio example in the bananas/mak folder?

I am just trying the audios example in bananas/mak

Bet you any money you are using Internet Explorer 11.

Mark is using the UserAgent function to get information from the browser. Change
If UserAgent.Contains( "MSIE " )
If UserAgent.Contains( ".NET " )

If you want to see the full string just use
Print UserAgent

Install and test a number of browsers. You will see how bad audio consistency is with HTML5.

Here something of interest for browser detection

when I compile it for a desktop app it still doesn't work though ?

Thanks for the info .

Disregard -- it does work for a desktop app
and the change to 'NET' worked in the html as well

Awesome -- thanks again

Use "Trident" to detect IE 9-11 browsers

If UserAgent.Contains( "Trident" )

It's useragent string for my ie11 on windows 8.1 pro 64 bit with VS 2012/2013 installed
HTTP_USER_AGENT Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; WOW64; Trident/7.0; rv:11.0) like Gecko
