Hello all.

Apologies if this is a silly question but i have scanned the forum for existing examples of this with little joy.

I was wondering whether it is a good idea to use existing open source game code to learn how to use existing game audio API’s like openAL. Or is there a resource for games that can be modded ?

I am new to this game, excuse the pun, and was hoping for some insight.

Many thanks.

Oli

I’ve created a 5.5hr long video tutorial series on OpenAL and posted it on my website. Have a look there if you are interested in learning how to setup and use the sound library:
