I have just downloaded FMOD to try on iOS. By guidance of a person on here.
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5450 … audio-apis

Features looks good, and examples working well. I’m impressed about multichannel playback performance. I like even the price of casual license for iOS platforms.
[b:1j1m98u4]But I couldn’t find documentation still yet.[/b:1j1m98u4]

There’re only guidance documents, no readable documentation files. Where is API reference? Should I purchase license to see reference documentation?
"fmodex.chm" looks like what I want, but how can I see the file? It looks Microsoft Windows Help file. Why are you offering iOS documentation in Windows-only format?

This making me pissed off! Really annoying!
I have guided to try, but your product package does not welcome me. Do you people want me not to try anything?
I haven’t ever seen any commercial product has incredibly hard to find documentation like this. At least, there was a big warning copy like "You need license to see the documentation."

I am sorry you had such a difficult time getting started with FMOD. I understand that by requiring 3rd party tools to view our help files we are putting an unnecessary barrier between you and the documentation you need. We are currently reviewing our documentation format and will hopefully have a solution that is more convenient for the future. For now the recommendations by Adiss are correct, those tools are quite adequate for displaying the docs on Mac, personally I use iCHM.app.

Thank you Adiss. I’ll look into it later. I’m already started with OpenAL.

The API reference is, in fact, fmodex.chm. There are plenty of CHM readers available for the Mac. I’m a Windows user, so I can’t speak to the quality of any of these, but a very quick Google search turned up the following:

Chmox: [url:ut5z5aj4]http://chmox.sourceforge.net/[/url:ut5z5aj4]
iChm: [url:ut5z5aj4]http://www.robinlu.com/ichm[/url:ut5z5aj4]
xCHM: [url:ut5z5aj4]http://xchm.sourceforge.net/[/url:ut5z5aj4]

Once you open the file up, you’ll find that there’s plenty of really good documentation and tutorials. FMOD also ships with a bunch of examples which you can use as reference.

Hope that helps!
