Hi.

I need a good API for playing sound. More specifically,
does anyone have an old version of FMOD (like 3.70) to send me, OR
an OpenAL library, that is compiled for MinGW. The current OpenAL
windows SDK contains libraries only for the Microsoft compiler.

Thanks!

If compiling the library your own is an option (I wouldn't know why not, it's like 5 minutes) then you can go with OpenAL-Soft. It compiles just fine and is perfectly usable under MinGW, and it has much better functionality than the cruft reference implementation that you get from Creative.

Nono I mean a library that can work with MinGW. In lamens terms, ends with .a and can work on g++ on Windows.

As samoth sayed, you will have to compile OpenAl-Soft yourself with MinGW.

It compiles perfectly fine and you will end up with .a lib that can be used with g++ on windows.
