i keep getting this error when compiling the ioquake3 source, i plan to use this for my first person shooter and it is really annoying when errors like this happen:
LINK : fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file 'openal32.lib'

i have the right visual c++ directories setup and everything else compiles fine. Could someone help?

You have to install the OpenAL SDK. It is a 3rd party sound SDK - fortunately for you it is open source, so it should be no problem at all.

Of course, after you run the win32 installer you will still need to set the include and lib paths in visual studio to the OpenAL include/lib paths.

Then it will work.

OpenAL - open audio library which happnes to be very familiar to OpenGL

that is to say i added the Libs and Include folder to the VC++ directories

oh and BTW, is there a way to change the name of the compiled exe so that when it is compiled it has a name other than ioquake3.exe?

Two things:
#1 Its handy if you fix a problem to post what the fix is so thats other finding your posts know how to fix it too.

#2 yes you can you have to open the properties page for you project then its down under these headings (in vs2003, similar in vs2005 etc)(Properties -> Linker -> General -> Output File): "ioquake3.exe".
