[GREENFOOT-108] Sound loading is very slow when using applets
Playing sounds in applets (on MyGame) has a long lag when the sound is played for the first time.
Quote from email exchange with Davin: "I just noticed that when a scenario is played, there are various requests to load image files directly from the server. That is, it makes a http request to try and retrieve the file from the server. The requests fail, obviously, because the file is not there, and I guess it then falls back to loading the image from the jar file containing the scenario, but the act of performing a http request causes a noticeable lag. (In asteroids for example, the first time I shoot, the game pauses for a second or two)."
"I am seeing requests like:
127.0.0.1 \- \- [EST|15/Feb/2008:15:16:08] "HEAD /scenarios/images/images/rock.gif HTTP/1.1" 404 0 \- -> /scenarios/images/images/rock.gif 127.0.0.1 \- \- [EST|15/Feb/2008:15:16:09] "HEAD /scenarios/images/images/rocket.png HTTP/1.1" 404 0 \- -> /scenarios/images/images/rocket.png 127.0.0.1 \- \- [EST|15/Feb/2008:15:16:11] "HEAD /scenarios/images/images/rock.gif HTTP/1.1" 404 0 \- -> /scenarios/images/images/rock.gif
... when I view the asteroids scenario (the above is from the mygame logs). "
