Urgent! Surround Sound in BGE

Post by Fingret » Wed Mar 07, 2012 10:59 pm

Hi I'm currently doing a small horror game for my thesis in school and it's has focus on the sound, specially surround sound. I have tried and tried but can't get any surround sound out to the rear speakers just stereo to the front. I use openAL 5.1 for the output, the SDL wont work in surround mode.

So my question is: Does BGE support surround sound? If it does how can I make it work? If not, what shall I do? :/

Hit Ctrl + Alt + U
Click "System" tab
Select "5.1" as shown below
Hit Ctrl + U to save settings

Not Go to the logic editor panel and add a sound actuator.
Click open audio file icon and load the sound file( .wav)
Now tick the checkbox for "3d sound"
This should make the sound play in surround sound. :) [/img]
