Portaudio? Should I stick to XAudio 2?
#1
Hey everyone, been a while since I've been active here. Things got busy. I haven't be around since just before 1.0 came out I think.

So I see Portaudio now. What is this, and should I use that over XAudio 2?

Though, I've been learning more and more that "if it ain't broken, don't fix it" and XAudio 2 is working fine so maybe I'm just overthinking it. I've always been an optimization freak but I've found that that mentality usually causes me more woes than helps.

My hardware in my signature is still accurate but now I have Windows 8.1 Enterprise x64, and I just got the latest build off the Orphis Buildbot (1.2.1 Revision 511)

Thanks.

^ Exactly. If it ain't broke...

PortAudio is cross platform, meaning it works on linux. It's also the default now, because I guess some people had problems with Xaudio2. For me, Xaudio2 works fine, so I continue using that.

Yup, that's what I figured it probably is. Devs gotta prioritize compatibility over all.

So yeah, I get it. Alright, thanks!

For some users (definetly me) Xaudio2 is very crashy. Crashes my game about 10-20 minutes in, so I just stick with portaudio, no issues there.
