sound when i click an object

i try to add a sound whenever I click on the balloon. What I did wrong? My print (tapSound) results in “nill”

return scene`Preformatted text`

I do not see a scope issue, so I would try to verify that the file exists in that location. Check the spelling/capitalization of the file and directory. Also, I believe the wav file has to be in a 16-bit uncompressed format.

The loadSound function also has an optional second parameter that you may want to try…

baseDir (optional)

Constant. By default sound files are expected to be in the project folder (system.ResourceDirectory). If the sound file is in the application documents directory, use system.DocumentsDirectory.

This has apparently already been resolved over at Solar2D’s Discord channel.

@Cheburashka, if you’d like to post your solution here for others to see, that’d be great.
