3D Sound API for MinGW

Recommended Posts

thisisjimmy    101
Hi.

I need a good API for playing sound. More specifically,
does anyone have an [b]old[/b] version of FMOD (like 3.70) to send me, OR
an OpenAL library, [b]that is compiled for MinGW[/b]. The current OpenAL
windows SDK contains libraries only for the Microsoft compiler.

Thanks!

If compiling the library your own is an option (I wouldn't know why not, it's like 5 minutes) then you can go with [url="http://kcat.strangesoft.net/openal.html"]OpenAL-Soft[/url]. It compiles just fine and is perfectly usable under MinGW, and it has much better functionality than the [s]cruft [/s]reference implementation that you get from Creative. Edited by samoth

As samoth sayed, you will have to compile OpenAl-Soft yourself with MinGW.

It compiles perfectly fine and you will end up with .a lib that can be used with g++ on windows.
