I’m just a simple hobby programmer who is having some fun coding a game that I like for the pocket pc. Of all the Sound APIs that I have tried, FMOD is definitely the fastest. The problem is that FMOD does not win any size awards as far as the dll is concerned, also the use of a dll leads to confusion in installation (i.e. other files to keep track of). I have heard about a version of FMOD that is statically linked and allows you to turn off certain features that the programmer does not use to shorten the file size. My question is this, is it absolutly required to pay for this static library version? I would not be using the game for commercial purposes, and it probably won’t get on more than a handful a pocket pc’s. On the other hand, I can understand the developer’s motive to use the static version to create incentive to purchase the comercial license.
