Any chance of seeing a fixed wav loader soon?
« on: April 20, 2003, 05:43:09 am »

For any big-endian "real" systems...

Is this in the CVS trees already.  I'd like to use this on OS X or try to port it to my IRIX machines.  It's odd that the music loader works ok but the wav loader doesn't.

I've emailed Mika and we briefly discussed this issue.  It's not really that odd because the sound effects are stored in the WAV format, which is geared towards little-endian machines.  I've taken a look at a couple of endian-safe .wav loading systems that I may be able to port over (I could find name if you'd like, I can't recall them off the top of my head...).  I've also looked briefly at just writing a new loader from scratch, based on the WAV spec.  It wouldn't take a real coder any time at all, but it'd probly take a rookie like me a couple dozen hours.
Anyways, between finals and my new summer coding job, I don't know that I'll be able to get down to writing code for this 'till the summer's over at least...

An alternative to this would just be migrating all the .wav sfx to .ogg. Though maybe that's not the preferred solution.

Fixed wav loader is now in CVS; I'd appreciate if someone Mac or other big-endian machine owner could test and confirm does it work without problems.

I am working on getting the CVS compiled on MacOS X with Nic., but there are difficulties. If I knew shell scripting better or Nic. could get to a mac, I'm sure it would be solved soon.

Im pretty new to this.. but I havent been able to get it to compile either, in OSX.  Still on my Ibook I wasnt able to get sound working within yellow dog linux either.  

With the new CVS build in linux the wav loader works properly... which ROCKS!!  Thanks for everything..

Thanks for testing, the endian issue seems to be solved and it should work just fine under OS X too if you ppl get it to compile (unfortunately we don't have any Mac developers on our own so until we get someone active and skilled to fix the issues, OS X side of things will be somewhat behind others).
