Hi, I just found this project and it looks really promising. One thing that bothers me is the default use of FMOD. While it's a great library, it's also pretty pricey. Any chance of a future release switching over to OpenAL by default?
Hello niosop, while I'm not the one in charge of those decisions about nGene that issue has risen in the past and what I and wtoman talked was that the OpenAL spec seems pretty much dead…( I mean the 1.1 spec is from 2005).
With that in mind we didn't rule out completely the chance to implement it but maybe it would be more useful for us to use audiere, bass or just another lib that has a smaller price.
Do you have any suggestion? :-)
Biovf already answered your question. Actually I'd considered using OpenAL but as it is no longer maintained I gave up the idea. However, I'm open for suggestions. Adding support for another library would be a piece of cake :) and you don't even need to use FMOD if you don't want to. Project is configured in such a way that FMOD dlls will be loaded only if they are directly used.
