Does fmod have any type of “play from ? to ?” type stuff? So I could select where i wanted the song to play from. Also, is FMUSIC really any better for playing midi then FSOUND and why? And also, can you have the same index play while its already playing? or multiple times at once? (sorry, just dont know how to explain that last one right, sorry if it doesnt make sence)
Thanks in advance!

Hey, me again, forgot one question… Is fmod just a wrapper for DirectSound? I was looking at the tut’s again and saw SET_HWND, something like that, and under description says something like “Sets HWND so DirectSound can see if window is in focus.” .. if its not a wrapper, can someone please explain this?! THANK YOU VERY MUCH IN ADVANCE!

FMOD can use DirectSound, but it doesn’t have to. It can also use WaveOut, NULL, ASIO or a couple of others. FMOD has its own software mixer which is often better than the mixer provided with DirectSound. DirectSound does not support soundbanks, MODs, XMs, or OGG to name a few formats that FMOD provides. I guess you could say it wraps DirectSound, but it also offers a whole load more.
I’m not familiar with MIDI so I can’t answer your first question.
