This is like the best plugin ever! Because I really wanted to beep the hell out of my computer with Construct and thanks to you I am able to do so now! Very much appreciated! :D

This is really nice, but i have a slight problem... the sound comes out of my headphones instead of inside my PC.

I know the one inside my PC works because it beeps a few times every time i turn it on...

I'm assuming its probably an option in windows somewhere? I'm running Windows 7 64bit

Interesting plugin. But, I'm having some issues as well. I'm noticing that when a sound plays, it freezes the entire application. Also running Windows 7 64bit.

This is normal behaviour as the system beep is a synchronous call.

I see, is there any way to make it not do this?

I don't think so, sorry.

Yarfapet: Like tulamide said, Beep() is a blocking call. Perhaps I could do some fancy multithreading stuff so it won't do that, but no promises. I'd have to get VC++ on this new machine for starters.
