FMOD support
« on: April 24, 2014, 05:25:43 AM »
Hey all,

I posted a query in Playmaker Help about any existing FMOD support, given the recent announcement that FMOD is free for indies with budgets under $100,000.

If that support doesn't already exist having an action set to support FMOD would be incredibly powerful.

Going to give this a bump. Support for the FMOD Unity Integration native plugin would be fantastic. Although based on the support documentation it doesn't look like an impossible task to make my own audio controller C# script and drive exposed variables from playMaker.

Thanks, jeanfabre! That's really excellent of you. I've put in a vote as you suggest. For the time being I'm going to see how much I can control in a C# interface between FMOD and PlayMaker.

Awesome! I noticed on trello you said you've moved it to your To Do list, Jean. Any update on this? FMOD support in Playmaker would make all the difference in the world for my project. Thanks for working on this!

Jean,

I realize there are a few things above FMOD on the Trello TO DO list, but really there isn't much Playmaker can't do with regards to making a legit game, except for support for professional interactive audio tools. I can't imagine that building Playmaker actions for FMOD is that big of a task at all, as I know that the engineers I work with claim it to be extremely simple and requiring only a few lines of code to get started. This would bring Playmaker into the audio community in a big way. I've been waiting on it for literally over 2 years, as Playmaker is one of the only options for non-code-savvy audio designers like myself for making a game.

Again, I'm sure this would be a quick task for you, and would bring so much functionality and applicability to Playmaker! Please bump it up on the TO DO list!

Magomusica,

I can look into it, but make no promises. If your audio engineer friends just think its a few lines of code, they are welcome at it. But 99% of the time, it takes more than that. There are plenty of assets on the list and even more that are not on the list. If you are in need of something done right away, you can always try and sponsor something to get completed or contact the asset author for them to get the ball rolling.

Again, I will have a look and see what the situation is regarding the code and playmaker.
