It's very interesting to hear how do you use XAudio2 object in your game or if you don't use it how do you work with sound generally, which formats do you use for audio files, do you experience bugs , if yes, then what kind of bugs is that, in short, everything?
I started this topic because of one silly bug - white screen on game start, I'm sure it has to do with sound. My audio card is Audigy 2 and video card is NVidia GS8400, PC is Dual core Athlon X64(2.81 Ghz each), DDR2 2 GB RAM.
I used XAudio2 for my demo, marked it as Global, made sounds load into each channel per layout(24 sounds t o24 channels, all of them are oggs) and then encountered that bug(white screen). After 20 seconds of hard thoughts I decided to load some sounds not per layout but in certain layouts and leave the main sounds(walking, punch, death, etc.) per layout(6 sounds). From that moment the game works fine for me but sometimes people tell me there's still white screen on their computers (that happened 2 times already). Strange but their pc's are quite good.
