Windows PLAYSOUND bug

Previous topic - Next topic


Basically, when setting the volume, say, at 0.5, which should be half, its barely audible.

Which is roughly the same results I'm getting.

Mr Toad has mentioned that it uses DirectSound, which is horrible, wouldnt OpenAL be a lot better, with the added bonus of using the OGG format and potential for streaming music without having to worry about licenses!



Wasn't sure whether to start a new bug report but since this concerns PLAYSOUND on the PC I also found that PLAYSOUND will not work when the app hasn't got window focus, even if AUTOPAUSE is set to FALSE. PLAYMUSIC works as normal.
