EAX 3.0 & EAX Unified SDKs

1 post in this topic

So I think this needs an entrly new thread. My problem is simple - I'm reverse engenering program which calls functions from EAX 3.0 and EAX Unified APIs. I need them to include but the Creative Labs Development site is broken. The only place to download EAX 2.0 SDK is some old archive and for EAX 3.0 & EAX Unified SDKs the only info in the internet is this russian thread http://www.gamedev.ru/sound/forum/?id=5539 [img]http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/blink.png[/img] . Can somebody tell me how to get those SDKs? [img]http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/wacko.png[/img]

So thank you for the reply. Maybe I'm so curious but why "that the file is no longer available for download". I realize anyway that I will need EAX 3.0 SDK and EAX Unified SDK. Is there someway to get them? I'm ready to fill any documents or forms for it. I need only them nothing other.

P.S.: I think SDK is open for not-commercial use. Yeah I'll use it for not-commercial target so no need apologize. But if I need to pay or fill forms I'm ready.
