Playing a simple .wav sound in a c++ application

Recommended Posts

For my AP computer science class, we have to make this pacman game for our final project. I want to add sound to my game. I have a wav file that I want to play every time he eats a dot. What code and header files do i have to use to get him to play a sound? Larry Charles CEO Centra Entertainment Studios

Using the Platform SDK (i.e. no DirectSound):

BOOL PlaySound(
LPCSTR pszSound,
HMODULE hmod,
DWORD fdwSound
);

Header: Declared in Mmsystem.h; include Windows.h.
Library: Use Winmm.lib.
