Hi all!! I am trying to include an OpenAL sound in my engine but unfortunately I don''t have any experience with it yet! I am trying to find some OpenAL libraries but dont''t really know what libraries I should look for!! Please don''t direct me to OpenAL.org site as I think that web site is completely useless! Rubbish!! No info at all!! there are some links to their ftp site but to find the right files is like playing a lottery!! You have to be lucky to find the right files obviously if you know what you are looking for, as there is no info about the files you need to have! I am using Windows ME OS so if you know where I could download all necessary files for OpenAL then plz let me know!! thanks!! so far I !guessed! from OpenAl.org site that I will need the following files: Windows\System\OpenAL32.dll C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VC98\Include\AL\aluttypes.h, alut.h, altypes.h C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VC98\Lib\ALut.lib, OpenAL32.lib I am not sure if I put it in the right directory! this was completely my guess as there is nothing on OpenAL.org where to put them!! Oh yeah!! I forgot! for those who want to learn how to create a simple logo by using two simple layers on photoshop then please visit OpenAl.org !! as thats all you can download from there!!! (stupid!!)
