I spent all day trying to work out what API I will use to play sound and music. In the end I landed on FMOD, and it seemed like Stompy had a lot of success with it so I thought... hey what the hell.
I love FMOD! I got the latest release- FMOD-EX 4.03. It is fantastic with a fully object oriented approach to development.
Anyway, just spend about 40 minutes writing a basic wrapper class and its working very well.
I just played my first sound bite- The reconstructed voicemail from 12 monkeys. I felt it was kinda appropiate for the engine [smile]
Anyway, HaVe a MeeeeeRRRREEEEEEEEE CHRISTMMMMMAAAAAAZZZZZ
