Hi yall, I'm trying to use openAL but it doesn't seem to pick the main board sound adapter. I don't have a sound card attached to the main board, so I'm trying to use the one in the main board. Thanx.

The shouldn't be any problem with an integrated sound card, even if it supports only 2d sound.

What kind of troubles are you experiencing ?

Best regards

You'll need both OpenAL32.dll and wrap_oal.dll. I had that same problem in the past and I was missing the 2nd dll mentioned.

Also (obviously) make sure your sound drivers are installed properly.
