using mini_al instead of openal
« on: January 23, 2019, 09:20:17 pm »
Hi
since openal is the only shared library used when linking sfml statically , i just thought why not using mini_al
instead of openal .
its single header file : https://github.com/dr-soft/mini_al just like stb_..

It doesn't use 3D spatial audio.

Seems to be a viable replacement for OpenAL, with nice license and even using the same 3D audio computation model as OpenAL. It's almost as if the author was looking for an OpenAL replacement themselves...
SFGUI # SFNUL # GLS # Wyrm <- Why do I waste my time on such a useless project? Because I am awesome (first meaning).
