Finally… an update!

It has been a while since we last posted on here. There has been a lot going on with me and Clinton and we have had very little time. We have gotten some programming done on The Sphere (if you ask me not as much as I would like). We have gotten the audio programmed in our busy summers and hope to have more done in the near future.

We choose to use the SDL music library and OpenAL for a couple different reasons. They are both multi-platform, easy to use, and have a diverse functionality. I programmed a wrapper dynamic library that we could use with The Sphere or other projects. I tried to make it as functional as we would need it. There is the standard play stop pause functions then fade in and fade out (which is native to SDL music). I have programmed it so that there is a playlist of the music playing and when one is finished it moves the next and the most recent music played is put on the bottom of the list. The user can also skip over the current music selection to the next one. Naturally, the user can also change the volume of the music.

All of this functionality in the music and sound allows us to provide a nice aspect to The Sphere. Giving us the ability to make an overlooked part of games hopefully to be better noticed.
