So the standalone doesn't find the sound files unless I move them
manually after doing 'show contents' in the Finder.
Is this a bug, or should I be setting the path differently now?
Apple now requires all resources to be in a separate folder. Nothing is
allowed in the engine folder except the executable. We now have a new
specialFolderPath("resources") to access that folder.
Instead of parsing a path from the engine folder, use:
specialFolderPath("resources") & "/media/" & gMediaPath
Everything in the Copy Files pane of the standalone settings now gets
put into specialFolderPath("resources").
In the IDE, the resources folder is the one that contains your
mainstack. This is handy because you can keep the same hierarchy in your
working folder and the specialFolderPath still works there.
