MIDI Music but no sound effects

Post by Bryan » Fri Dec 09, 2016 18:49

I haven't tried to build this engine before so apologizes if I missed an easy step. I can get MIDI music to play by changing the sound options but I have no sound effects. The most common advice I found said to download zdoom and copy fmodex.dll to the same directory as gzdoom.exe

I haven't done anything crazy, I think I'm following the normal steps:

Code: Select all

git clone https://github.com/coelckers/gzdoom.git
...
cmake -G "Visual Studio 14 2015"
...
Then I opened the project in Visual Studio and built in Release mode. Is this a configuration issue or am I missing something else?

Yes, you actually missed something. For sound to work you need to properly set up at least one of the two sound backends, either FModEx or OpenAL.

Here's the setup instructions, it's all listed there: http://zdoom.org/wiki/Compile_ZDoom_on_Windows
