I want to write a non-commercial program based on QT and FMOD Event system. QT-Noncommercial only supports MinGW as Compiler, so I’m screwed because I can’t link your Event System Library.
Ok now, I’m begging on my knees for MinGW-Support: Please at least add a C-API like the fmod library has…

They have patches for the original Qt open source, which after applied can be compiled with MSVC.
You would be missing still some stuff – like ActiveQt and few other things, but FMOD Designer might not be using them.
WARNING: You can not use the open sourced version in any commercial application, or on a commercial site (That’s a recommendation they gave me for our company). As you said, you’ll be using it only for open-sourced apps. Then it might be fine (although I’m not sure whether you can mix GPL(Qt) with LGPL(FMOD)).
[quote="brett":2or2fs2u]The event API is C++ so i don’t think you’re going to have luck at the moment.[/quote:2or2fs2u]
So, a C-Wrapper around C++-Api (like for FMODex) isn’t going to happen (at least not any time soon) – what would I need to do to get a MinGW linkable version of the C++ API? Maybe except buying a commercial license?

Doesn’t help me, since QT (under GPL license), the other crucial component in my project, is far from compilable with Visual Studio – at least from what I see. And, of course, I don’t have the money, to buy a commercial license (compilable with MSVC) from them either…
So if you can’t (very generously) offer me a MinGW linkable version of the API, my project (or should I say brainchild?) will die because I don’t have the money to buy me around this problem…
No, I won’t resort to using Emoticons to show how I feel – maybe you can guess it.
