Fix for can't pause/stop looped sound effect in windows

Bug #3045 [Closed]

I discovered this issue when I ported my game to windows using VS 2012. When I looped a sound effect I couldn’t stop that sound effect when calling stopEffect or pauseEffect. It appears that the issue is how the command variable is passed, an int versus unsigned int. I dug into CocosDenshion::MciPlayer and changed the function MciPlayer::*SendGenericCommand to MciPlayer::*SendGenericCommand(UINT nCommand) which resolved the issue.

It appears that my “solution” doesn’t completely resolved the issue. Most of the times the sound does stop/pause but sometimes it does not. However repeat calls of the stop/pause command eventually stops/pauses the sound. 2013-12-26 05:53

I got similar bug in android. I just can’t stop looped sound effect sometimes. If I call stopEffect serval times. It will be stopped. 2014-10-08 03:00
