C, respectively). Each of these routines will be replaced in different versions of the library to accommodate specific platforms or design changes. The remaining routines that get called in these functions have to do with our MIDI synthesizer, so we’ll defer any discussion of these until Chapter 7. h, (described in the previous chapter), and create four linked lists of function pointers to control and manipulate these various modules throughout the run of the game. A closer examination of the ModuleProcs array (just above the SMInit code itself) reveals the specific functions we will use to initialize, uninitialize, activate, deactivate and update each of our defined modules.

The SAMPLEMIDIINFO data structure keeps track of the information necessary to accommodate this use of a SAMPLE. ) Again, all of the information presented above shows how the Soundtrack Manager represents and stores digital audio data. But how does it get played? To answer this, we have to shift gears for a bit and talk about the underlying mechanisms that make the Soundtrack Manager tick. c (located in the \Code\Sound folder). Here we initialize a few variables, including one to count how many times we’ve entered a critical section in our code.

Should we encounter an error anywhere along the line, we simply back out the way we came in, leaving no trace of our presence, no soda cans in the bushes: ProcListExecute(ExitProcList); ProcListFree(ExitProcList); ProcListFree(UpdateProcList); ProcListFree(ActivateProcList); ProcListFree(DeactivateProcList); UninitDevices(); } UninitVolumes(); } UninitMemMgr(); } return(FALSE); } Play me Let’s return to how we actually play back DA data. In the Soundtrack Manager, all DA is stored inside a SAMPLE structure for playback.
