Default Any ideas for game sounds?


im making a fast-paced game but my sound functions cant keep up.

im currently just using windows media players to make something like a pseudo-multichannel system but its not working out.

i went for directsound but found out that its outdated and does not work anymore.

can someone help me make a sound function as simple as playSound(address) with buffering. (also must be multichannel as i am playing several sounds simultaneously)

windows media player is slow and lags the application.

thanks!

im using visual studio 2010 btw

Haven't done a lot of sounds in vb (legacy or .Net), but did settle on the old multi-media API calls to allow multiple overlapping sounds in the one VB.Net program that I've done that has sounds, found in this thread,.
The thread is a progression of development of the demo for the first 12 posts, post 12 being the last that has the Space Invaders example (3 versions actually) in it, I believe. After that, the thread was diverted into a different direction.

Perhaps it can be of use.
