I've been using Orbiter since i was a kid, and its part of who i am. It gave me a window into the universe in which we reside, and is what kept me wanting to be a pilot. Returning after years to find this thread, a shining beacon that great things live on in such a trying time, has actually brought a tear to my eye. Thank you Daniel, for all your work.

Copied from another posting:

"Dan, when working with the ObiterSound_SDK, what is your recommended setup? What versions of compiler are you using?

Regards"

There you go, Dan. I asked the question 'cause I think your answer will help a number of us, me least of all. You can delete the other posting now.

Cheers

Dear Ken,

I use VS2017 and I compile the SDK library with platform toolset "v140_XP" ("Visual Studio 2015 - Windows XP") to ensure maximum compatibility. This said I have absolutely no idea if it might cause problem with VS2008 or later and how much difficulties you might encounter with the VS2017 examples so I propose that we make a test. I'll send you the SDK and the examples.

Note: if your vessel was compiled with OrbiterSound 4.0 SDK you don't need to change anything, it will work as expected with OrbiterSound 5.0 on Orbiter 2016 (Given that your vessel is also fully compatible with Orbiter 2016 of course).

Cheers,

Dan

NEWS - About web radio

I  completely rewrote the Music system of OrbiterSound 5.0, the new one can also play web radio
(It was not the main reason why I rewrote it completely, but adding web radio was easy)

Adding one radio station is fairly simple:
1-Create a *.txt file in "Sound/Mp3/" folder.
2-Rename it with the radio name you want to display, inside write the URL of the radio.
3-Change ".txt" to ".webr"
Example: "NASA Third Rock radio.webr" with inside:
http://rfcmedia2.streamguys1.com/thirdrock.mp3

It will be read by OrbiterSound as any other song in the list but as it never stop playing, you'll need to click "PRV/NEXT" in Radio/Radar/Mp3 MFD if you want another radio or song.

Fun stuff: OrbiterSound will have the Nasa's Third Rock radio station as demo.
Rock music and various cool announcement.  Click this link or the direct "mp3" link above to hear it:
https://www.nasa.gov/feature/third-rock-radio



A cool radio to listen during your long orbital transfer

Adding one radio station is fairly simple***

NEWS & INFO - About web radio

You may wonder, "why the heck there is one file per radio station"  :wonder: (see the news above about web radio )
The answer is simple: addons !

Downloading, uploading exchanging a zip with dozen of "*.webr" radio sorted by genre and copying those you want in the "Sound/mp3" folder take one second for the final user while manually editing a big config file containing all the radio's url would be much more annoying and sensitive.

Adding or removing one or more radio is easy like copying/deleting some files and one can even tag them with any info:
(Jazz) South Orlean Lulz.webr
(Classic) Vienna kaboom valz.webr
(Rock) Y100 Michiana.webr


I think web radio is a cool feature, I'm testing now with those radio below and often I wait that a song finish because I'm hooked by the music. Also traveling in space hearing "Earth", "Moon" or "Mars" radio station in the background is not unrealistic at all: it add to the ambiance.

(You may not have the same musical taste than me, only the NASA radio will be provided as demo )

NASA Third Rock radio.webr -> http://rfcmedia2.streamguys1.com/thirdrock.mp3
Rock Prog Univers.webr ->http://94.23.221.158:9163/stream.mp3

NEWS - Sound and Music controlled by scenario

This will be useful for add-ons authors.

By adding a "BEGIN_OrbiterSound" section in any scenario, you'll be able to command sound and music in a particular scenario.
This is great if you want a full recording of real launch sound, or if you want to play your own music
or sound, or if you just want to mute the music and the VHF chatter.
Those commands are temporary, just for this scenario. The user can cancel this control with
the "Radio/Radar/Mp3" MFD at any time.

Comment from addon author welcome, let me know what you think !

See below a summary of all commands:


Code: [Select]
BEGIN_OrbiterSound
  ;-----------------------------------------------------------------
  ; Preliminary Note: all music, sounds and settings below are
  ; TEMPORARY just for this scenario.
  ; The "Radio/Radar/MP3" MFD will show :
  ; "WARNING: Sound controlled by scenario, click any MFD button
  ; to cancel this control and return to normal."
  ;-----------------------------------------------------------------

  ;-----------------------------------------------------------------
  ; IMPORTANT:
  ; This should come first before any other sound command !
  ; Its your addon's music and sound folder for this scenario located
  ; in "Sound\_CustomScenarioSound\" (for this example: "Sound\_CustomScenarioSound\MikeFalcon9Addon")
  ; Of course if you use only "mute" command, this is not mandatory.

Excellent!  There are many Orbinauts that will use this to play real recordings during their scenarios.
The "T" option in particular (play sound at this many seconds after scenario start) is a wonderful and very thoughtful addition!

NEWS - Scenarios commands Looking good...

Forbidden buttons (NXT/PRV/MOD) emit a "bip bip" sound, user still have the control over the volume (LVL)



MUS button pressed, user have the control again: (Yeah, radio playing AC-DC Highway to Hell)
As you see the music list added by scenario (3 songs, hans zimmer) is not the same than the user's songs which are in Sound/Mp3.
