- first one worth showing anyway! Made some other stuff in between and still in progress, but nothing decent looking (yet), let alone finished. I'd like to show this one off now, anyway. So, I present to you in windows OpenGL: wamingo's Matrix Code Rain Copy and paste: http://users.cybercity.dk/~dsl54345/misc/wam's_matrix_code.zip yes, I know... Probably everyone and their dog has made one just like it and it's been done to death already... But I looked around the web for types like it and found almost none that were very interesting including two versions downloadable from nehe's archive. I tried hard to take it a little step further towards the movie than those have and, well, you'll have to look for yourself I think... Personally I'm pretty happy with it now, but give me your honest opinion anyway, please. A few notes perhaps - It's not really interactive, but there's a few keys still, check the readme inside for details. oh yeah. You need OpenAL, I hope it comes pretty standard with audio drivers otherwise I haven't got a clue what to do about it??? I never did any audio programming until 2 days ago and sort of hacked it in quickly, but I was unable to find proper sound files so the one sound there is is very (very very) modest but decided to leave it in anyway, maybe I'll find some later, who knows. Anyway, hope you like it, and don't find any bugs!! but if you do please tell. edit: if you have trouble with OpenAL then try downloading creatives OpenAL driver from here: http://developer.creative.com/articles/article.asp?cat=1&sbcat=31&top=38&aid=46 [edited by - wamingo on January 14, 2004 7:35:56 PM]

Pretty cool, except it turned my default windows cursor into a large yellow block. Hmm, now after typing, my cursor has returned... very strange.

edit: Interesting, I didn't need the openAL.dll file, I guess it's already on my system but to my knowledge I've never installed it before.

eeep, that doesn't sound good
Any ideas why?
What gfx card are you using?
I use a geforce 4400 and everything seems dandy here.

And the openAL is probably in your system or system32 windows folder...

sorry Joe-Bob. The OpenAL32.dll comes with creative sound drivers I think, and the OpenAL SDK from openal.org too of course but otherwise I haven't got a clue...
It would be nice if someone could clarify a bit on OpenAL?
I wanted to use a free sound sdk and not directx. I feel dx is too complicated to be bothered when something like open GL and now AL is so simple and can do everything I will ever need... Of course I used to say that about VB... doh!

edit:
Creative OpenAL Installer for Windows:

I think that's what you need.

Beats the hell outta me why it makes my cursor yellow. It''s probably about 64x64 pixels, a bright yellow cube for my cursor. It appears after about 5-10 seconds, and stays until I launch another program. It''s weird, it did it twice, and then it hasn''t done it again since, now I can''t reproduce it.

I use a Radeon 9600 Pro.

I also have a Creative card, I didn''t know they delivered OpenAL support.

It quits on startup for some reason, the window borders come up for a short time and before the window contents is painted, the window disappears again and the application is terminated, no error, no errorbeep or whatever. My specs:

GF4 Ti4200 128MB
SB Live! Player 5.1
AMD 2200+
512 MB RAM

Three penguin - You sure you extracted the files with the directory structure intact as it is in the zip file? It''s quite important because the file paths are hardcoded... But that''s the only thing I can think of...
