Request: Remove OpenAL support from Windows build

Post by Squall Leonhart »

No, do not want.

 


I use the openal provider as its better on Creative cards. you may as well be removing the entire Audio core as far as i care.

 


and btb, OpenAL is supported on ALL sound driver since 2006.

Request: Remove OpenAL support from Windows build

Maybe I'm not supposed to comment here, but here I go.

 


Speaking of the windows build I can't say a word, but speaking of the Linux one I can say OpenAL work great. On previous svn versions (svn 928, to be more precise), sound was "cracky" and tended to sound "dirty", but now that I recently compiled svn 945 with OpenAL on my Fedora 11 sound is great, not flawless as I'm having some issues, but it sure is more "clean".

 


The idea of using plugins for audio, video, joystick has it's pros and cons, myself, prefer an "all included" emulator, instead of using plugins for everything. I think of some specific builds, with this or that sound interface or with this or that video or input (joystick), so the user can select a specific and personalized version at compile time. But maybe it mean more work to do.

 


Again, thanks a lot for this great emu!
