Hi to all.
I saw a strange behavior when the sound card is already playing a sound and I try to start a fmod-based program. It always returns
[b:1nxjenjv]FMOD error! (60) Error initializing output device.[/b:1nxjenjv]

Is like if the sound card is busy or something similar. So why the fmod sound can not be played over the actual playing sound?

Regards,
Franco

It depends on which output mode you are using and which driver you have selected to play on. On Linux the sounds devices don’t always allow multiple applications to access them.

This error isn’t very specific, but if it is what you guess, (that the device is busy) then try selecting another driver for playback, you may have better luck. Also from my experience ALSA gets better results than OSS in sharing devices.

Hi Mathew, I followed the fmod examples, where it doesn’t specify drivers.
Can you give me a piece of code where you specify the driver you mentioned?

If you take a look at the recording example there is code there that will show you how to select the output mode as well as the output and input drivers.

Hi, I followed your suggestion but the problem is still here. Under linux, also with the ALSA driver, when the sound card is busy, is not possible start a fmod-based program. This doesn’t happen under windows XP.
There is no solution?

OSS can have problems with sharing but ALSA should be ok. If you sound card supports hardware mixing it should "just work" since it isn’t I assume your sound card doesn’t support hardware mixing. You may have to configure ALSA (outside of FMOD) to support sharing. I quick Google revealed a website that is probably of help http://alsa.opensrc.org/AlsaSharing this would involve editing your .asoundrc file.
