Basics

Not much was going on today. I was trying to figure out what I can take as basic axioms of the code for the demo : There will only be one music track and the whole demo will be synced against it, all resources will have to be loaded / generated at the beginning of the program - probably with a progress bar having to be displayed, there's only one script file which will be loaded from a text file during developement and then compiled into bytecode and stored in the exe on release, and there were a few other things which are are almost definitely true.

I am going to see how far this brings me and then I can get working on the core demo code while the concept is being fleshed out. I will pass any assumptions I make passed the designer to see if they fit into his plan.

I'm using FMOD for the sound during developement. I have decided to use it for the sound system for two reasons. One, it has native support for MOD files which is probably what is going to be used. And two, it is easy to use and should be no problem to set up.

Anyway I should have a fair idea of the code layout by the end of tomorrow at which stage I'll write it up in a tech doc so that all the technologies are clear and out in the open.
