Hello AtariAge! I am making my first game, and all I really need to add is sound effects, and possibly music. I understand how setting AUDV0/1, AUDC0/1, and AUDF0/1 change the pitch, but I am stuck on even how to begin to write music or sound effects for it. Is there some sort of engine I can use in my game to play an arbitrary song or sound? The one engine I can find (right here) loops the music (which isn't what I want, except for perhaps a music track during the game), and doesn't work when I put it in my code.

Have you checked out the sound examples on the bB page?




I make the data using the Music and Sound Editor.

No, I had not checked that out (even though I was aware of the page...I never saw that). I will see which of those source codes will help me with what I need for the game I'm making, thank you!
