Using OpenAL/ ALUT instead of shell call to afplay

This works perfectly on my system, but I got a 'not so good' from a fellow Macbeth user.
Please let me know how sounds work on your system. Especially if sounds aren't working, please! let me know what system your using Macbeth with.

I had to delete some sounds: 'woodthunk', 'thud', 'slap'. So please go to File -> Settings and use 'Reset sounds' to get the latest sound configuration.

I'll upload a binary to the website later today.

Ready now! Enjoy!

Sound support

I shipped some sounds with Macbeth which you can find in

You can also use your own sounds if you put them in MACBETH_USER_DIR/sounds

Configuration of sounds is still very very basic.

More will follow ;)
