FMOD offers a free license for indie games with a budget under $100k.
If you prefer to have source access you could also take look at libraries like PortAudio or the audio part of SDL.

It looks like a great idea but is there good tools to manage the [/size]CMakeLists.txt file as you develop and add things on specific configurations ?[/size]

You can use basically every text editor. The part about adding files to the project isn't more than just adding the (relative) path of that file into a list of filepaths. You can even use wildcards to add multiple files at once.
Many editors and IDE do also provide syntax highlighting and even autocompletion for CMake. For Visual Studio there is a plugin available that adds this support.

As you already have plans to go cross-platform I would recommend you to use something like CMake to manage your project files.
With CMake you manage your project in files called CMakeLists.txt which are then used to generate solution files for Visual Studio, Xcode and a couple of other IDEs that are also supported. Inside those files you can easily check for which platform your are going to compile and decide which code files to include in the build.

In Topic: Certificate needed on Steam?

18 December 2014 - 04:54 PM

I paid about $60 for as many code signing and wildcard ssls as i could ever want as a one off payment. I don't want to advertise so if you're interested drop me a pm and I'll let you know who I use. These are properly recognised ones by the way, not cacert or such...

Are you sure it's really a one off payment? I know of a company who sells these certificates for 60$ but the certificates are only valid for two years and you need to be verified again after that time (which also means that you have to pay again).

I am a bit confused by the web hosting prices that I see. Some say $1 per month, and others say closer to $10 per month. How much would it cost to get a domain name and a host for a simple website like this?

The price depends on what you need. Personally I pay about 11€ (~13$) per year for my .com address. In addition you would need some webspace (I don't think it's not possible to use your university's webspace with a custom domain). How much space you need and how much that will cost depends on how big your website is.

Some companies also provide some sort of "complete package". I have a server at a german hoster and they do also offer a package of 2GB webspace, 10GB traffic and 1 domain for 1,90€/month (~2,40$).
