Integrating OpenAL

Post by krazyjakee » Wed Jan 13, 2010 12:30 am

A sound effects engine powered by OpenAL would be a great addition to the game.

We have considered using OpenAL... however the people on the mana project is interested in rewriting the client with Qt libs, in which case we would most likely use Phonon.

We will have a unified client that supports both ManaServ and eA for CR1, however, it will likely be the last release of this software.

Instead we will focus on developing Mana-Qt

As long as I get 3D sound, I will not have to consider using any other technical platform besides manasource to pull TMW off with.

Might have to wait for Mana 1.1 or so. We really need to focus on getting that first version out. But it is something to look at as a replacement for SDL_sound.

As long as it is on your roadmap, I have no reason to consider any alternatives.

You are a rather delightful open source project to be a client of: you actually listen to your userbase.
