This is a little helper DLL for playing sounds using DirectX I made. In order to add proper sound support to Strategic Instinct 2, I recently extended this DLL to support Ogg Vorbis files (.ogg, see This free format provides excellent sound quality, and as adding MP3 support would inherit licensing issues, I decided to go along with it. Well, my point: Ive released DSHelper 1.1! This little DLL allows you to play PCM Wave Files and Ogg Vorbis files in your programs for free (but read the license). If youre a programmer and interested in adding sound support to your game/program/tool/whatever, try it! Its even possible to retrieve the DirectSound 8 buffers to step deeper without having to bother of initializing all that stuff.


Id like to welcome you on this new layout! As usual, the newest version of FinalSun can be downloaded on this page.
