Should be useful for both the 4E4 entry, plus the stuff I'm doing for work if I can wrap the dll for C#, if grabbing metadata from music files ever becomes real necessary.
So why is it important for the 4E4 entry? Well I want to be able to properly credit any musicians work that I use in my entry (currently I'm using just the one, but still), and rather then have a seperate metadata file including artist and song information about each track I thought it would be great if the game could pull metadata straight from the music file itself.
I'm planning in incoporating it into a Ogre sound plugin I've seen the source code kicking around for. May be sourceforge it or just post it on the ogre forums when done, I dunno. Probably after the contest in anycase.
Ogre has just recently released another version update, so I guess I'll have to get that and build it at some point.
I went off on a tangent as far as that music stuff went, partially due to not having the laptop so not having a nice big screen to do Blender stuff on. But now that and my lovely wife are back from their travels I get some visual content done.
I get a feeling though that this contest thing would be alot more fun if I had other developers involved, still I don't know anyone personally who would be interested - and no one I don't know won't be interested in letting me take lead I expect [wink] It's alright, it's all a big learning experience for me anyway, will be nice to submit whatever I do and know that large chunks of the entry are mine.
