It seems a tad off-topic for what I'm doing here, however I'm curious as to what exactly its purpose is?

EDIT: (I keep seeing things like this all over the place...)

Some aspects of Vista are nice, such as the volume control and audio system in general (my speciality area! :lol: ) I suspect this could be implemented without making ReactOS too Vista-ish. In fact, given that each Windows release builds on top of the previous, it's probably possible to implement th...

If you're not expecting masses of people to use the tool and are doing this for educational purposes, go for it. I think people just don't want you getting your hopes up and developing this, only to find that it doesn't get used. With reference to the code you pasted... Most modern C compilers shoul...

ReactOS Audio Service

I've started work on the ReactOS Audio Service (can be found in base\services\audiosrv in the source tree) I've figured out how WinMM becomes aware of plug and play devices on XP. My implementation follows how Windows appears to do things, and works like so: AudioSrv creates a device list in shared ...

I think this guy sums it up quite well on that forum: Using open source just for the sake of it being open source is mindless! It seems pointless. 9x is a dying (if not already dead) architecture. The nice thing about the NT architecture is that it allows for a Win32 subsystem which allows all well-...

Technology progresses. In hindsight: Windows 3.1 was an abysmal mess, the "multi-tasking" it offered is a complete joke, and I wouldn't go as far as to call it an OS. DOS was the OS it sat on top of. Windows 9x was a vast improvement, however it was a sort of kludge of 16-bit and 32-bit code. It was...

If anyone's interested, I've started some documentation on how the various Windows multimedia subsystems appear to work and interact. This is to complement any existing documentation available online (such as the MME API / WinMM references and Kernel Streaming documentation). The purpose is to docum...

Hi, Someone mentioned this thread in the IRC channel (I'm usually around somewhere so it's a good way to get my attention :lol: ) There are a few things in the way of audio implementation. Firstly, there are at least 4 Microsoft-defined audio APIs: - MME (since Windows 3.1) - DirectX (since Windows ...

Funny you should say that, I love that game. To the extent I started making a chilled-out version of the music from the Hong Kong level. Here's the early version of my remix: www.silverblade.co.uk/stuff/synapse.mp3 I've done more since then, most notably the insertion of more sound clips of Bob Page...

So what style of music cues do you think would suit ReactOS?

Despite my involvement with trying to get bits of the sound system put together (very fun, considering Microsoft changed the way things are done betweeen NT4 and Win 2000, and have just changed it again for Vista...), I'd be interested in doing some musical event sounds. I did do some for SkyOS, and...

Whats happening, dudes?

I've been away from the project for a while, trying to get my own personal projects sorted out.

What's happening in the world of ReactOS these days?
