Hello I have a couple questions about some c++ libraries.


1. Are you allowed to use physx in a commercial game?

2. What are some open source libraries for networking and sound? I can't find that many that are open source.
Thanks!

"[i]Since Q1 2007, binary version of PhysX SDK is free for commercial and non-commercial use.[/i]" - [url="http://physxinfo.com/wiki/Category:PhysX_SDK"]source[/url]
Better read the license though, just in case (and I can't seem to find the actual license anywhere, so you probably need to download it to find out for sure).

You could also try [url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bullet_(software)"]Bullet[/url], which [i]is[/i] open source. (zlib)

OpenAL = Open source sound, if you use an earlier version. Later versions are proprietary, according to wikipedia. [img]http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/huh.png[/img] ([i][size=2]Then why's it called "Open"?![/size][/i])
Networking = Berkley sockets, but that's rather low level. [url="http://enet.bespin.org/"]ENET[/url] maybe? [url="http://www.jenkinssoftware.com/"]RakNet[/url] is higher level but is a commercial product.
