    FMOD rules
    And i only seen you working with it. You can do a lot more stuff than me with C# with it, so i'll be waiting for innovating implementation
    As for the flash, i am currently writing a whitepaper so everyone can use it as it's GUI. I think it's the best way. A skin that was 10MB with psd/jpegs can be done with a 30kb flash movie.
    An example of the lloydy's skin implementation can be found here. Many thanks to lloydy's for the source fla's and the license

    Soon i will upload the final lloydy's skin and screenshots because my blue skin sucks

    Yea i think the potential complexity of the FMod API scares alot of people away if they're not used to that level of coding, pity really, as it can do so much. I have some cool ideas in store for it once i get the core implementation down, much to do with the 6 chan setup im doing, so i'll be able to throw sounds out to individual speakers and tweak bass/treble levels per speaker, adjust timings to help the soundstage etc. FMod makes anything possible

    I agree that flash is a good way to go, 30kb skin is definately nice, and you have so much more control of how the interface works with animations, popups etc. I went the "old fashioned" way of XML defined skin using plain images, just varying it a bit with arbitrary polygon-based buttons.

    Should be good once you get a nice skin on it I'll look forward to the updates.

    Thanks to lloydy i finaly got a decent skin (still need some touches though).


    Two screenshots when playing



    For a full set of screenshots click here

    The setup.exe link in the first post includes the new setup file. In case you had an older version installed please uninstall first (and delete any remaining file).
    The program is not so light when playing (it takes 40% in a MII-12000) simply because of the 5.1 support (7.1 really) and 10-band equalizer. I might make an option that disables 3D/EQ for those who don't have such needs.

    Looking good JouS

    one question, what have you got the bandwidth of the eq bars set at in fmod? i've been playing around with mine, but have found that they have been overlapping somewhat..

    In the program the 10 bands are fully configurable by the user (from the database explorer). So up to now i haven't really given much thought of the default EQ setup that comes with the program (i might do that).

    The problem i have is that the sliders are now "linear" and so the range the user will need most (0 to 2db) is close to the center of the slider (FMOD allows up to 9.54db - 3 times louder). I want to make the sliders function non-linear for the ease of use in the car (i hate to do micro adjustments).

    [programming mode]
    The proper bandwidth -in my opinion- does not exist . You have to realise the meaning of an octave because in low MHz one octave is little MHz and in high frequency, is more.
    Generaly:
    one octave up is double the frequency.One octave down is half the frequency.So for each "band" set you want to make the octave might be different.

    Anyway, since all these are too developish ( ) we can talk over pm or MSN whenever you want.

    project is paused until next week (exams)
    The remaining addons are EOBD/shortcuts/WDM input (eobd is almost done).

    As for the server, it seems to have problems. I will upload them to another asap. Thanks for the note !!!

    Thanks JouS. Havent put it in the car yet but i can say this a great software, wish I could do flash. The FMOD engine seems promising with the built-in 5.1 support.

    Got to get me some Flash books and make a skin

    FMOD in yacs implementation can do 5.1 discrete output (FMOD has 7.1 support) with its own engine (no need to implement audio driver's multispeaker output). If on your setup you have enabled the 5.1 upmix on the card it might not work (just to state tha facts in case someone has such a problem ).
