How are you configuring OpenAL for distance attenuation? e.g. What
distance model are you selecting? Are you setting appropriate Reference
Distance, Roll Off, and Position parameters for each Source? Are you
using EAX or EFX extensions?

[Openal] Switched from OpenAL to
OpenAL Soft.. lost sound effects. 2
OpenAL was working perfectly on my XP computer. But when I tested it on
Vista I noticed that the distance attenuation wasn't working. I soon found
this was because Vista doesn't support hardware anymore (or something along
those lines).. so I decided I'd switch to OpenAL soft, hoping that'd solve
However, after building it and replacing the openal32.dll, I'm now not
getting distance attenuation on either XP OR Vista. I haven't changed any
code.. all I've done is replaced the openal32.dll (and removed
because it's no longer needed). I was hoping that with openal soft there
wouldn't be any hardware depenancy issues and the problem would be solved.
can hear sounds with the openal soft dll.. just they're in stereo at full
volume with no effects.
Does anyone have any ideas as to what the problem might be?
P.S. I also noticed that when I fire the shotgun in my game.. it freezes
a split second. But when I was using the old openal, it didn't. Obviously
it's to do with playing the shotgun.wav sound file. The weird thing is.. no
other sounds freeze it.. just this one file. I'll just replace the file..
but I'd be interested to know why one .wav would freeze the game for a
second, while another wav plays perfectly well. (all sounds in my game are
.wav and are loaded in with the alut function alutLoadWAVFile).
