I am using direct sound. In my Breakout game, whenever the ball hits a wall or the paddle, it boings... whenever it hits a block, it blooeeps... But, whenever there are two sounds of the same type really close together, it only plays one. How can I make it sound twice?? The Shaz "I don''t want to be a pie...

Thats because by default DirectSound will not replay a sound if a sound is already playing. What I did was to have a ReplicateSound function copy the buffer via duplicateBuffer or something like that. Look up the IDirectSound * interface. Remember to release the copied buffer once the sound has finished playing. Also, the function duplicateBuffer only copies the interface. The buffer is not duplicated.
