Newbie q: How do I.. (Music)

Recommended Posts

Hey I''m trying to write a simple background music player (mp3) with DX8. I know that DX have a sample one but I can''t figure out how it works =/ So I need pointers on how to Load and Play and mp3 in the backgroud. I''m using VC++ with DX 8.1 SDK under WXP. Also feel free to recomend good books =) Thanks in advance =) //Carorion

on this site, look under articles and resources; in the directx audio section there should be a tutorial for dx8. it covers loading and playing segments (including mp3s!) pretty well.

Here''s another good link: http://www.andypike.com/tutorials/directx8/

Check tut#13. And never forget the DX documentation, I got most info from there when I wrote a mp3 player.
