XAudio2 driver requires the following additional libraries: libogg, libvorbis, libvorbisfile. These additional libraries may also be used in the other sound drivers at a later point in time. Additionally, a DirectX SDK later than March 2008 is required for successfully compiling the driver, and the end-user needs to have the version used for compiling or later of the DirectX End-User runtimes (which always include all directx runtime versions up to the version installed, it is probably also possible to include the required directx dlls directly with the client distribution instead if the directx redist license allows this).

There's some weird design choices in the music channel system of NLSOUND, like for bnp files the name of the bnp file and the offset of the file inside is sent, which is pretty much not really necessary stuff for drivers that can handle nel files just fine. Something else that comes to mind is the fact that you need to call the music channel functions on the sound driver with a channel id, instead of on some sort of music channel interface similar to how the sample sources work.

Sound in character selection OK. Music interface between nlsound and driver definitely needs to be changed.

XAudio2 throws me errors on random sound samples, dunno why (and there's no documentation on the errors, yay)...
Will need to build some small sound test apps to find out why this is happening.
Some part of sound already seems to be working fine, anyways :)

#5 Updated by kaetemi about 11 years ago

Identified source of XAudio2 assert errors to a problematic call from a source voice callback OnBufferStart to the source voice function SetFrequencyRatio.
CSourceXAudio2 implementation will be reviewed to work around this (undocumented) behaviour of XAudio2.

#6 Updated by kaetemi about 11 years ago

Changed implementation of CSourceXAudio2 to fix issue with assert failure of XAudio2.

#7 Updated by kaetemi about 11 years ago

Driver runs stable right now, not fully implemented yet.
