GameMaker: Studio API

Using the GameMaker: Studio extension, SoLoud can be used from GameMaker: Studio.

Most of the existing interfaces can be used via the GameMaker: Studio API. Features that require extending SoLoud are not available. Additionally, the GameMaker: Studio limits extensions to only two variable types: doubles and strings. This means that anything more complex, such as wave and FFT data, cannot be used.

Using the GameMaker: Studio API

The extension soloud.gmez can be found under the "glue" directory.

To use SoLoud with GameMaker: Studio, you can import the soloud.gmez extension to your project. As of this writing, only windows target is supported.

GameMaker: Studio API Example

The GameMaker: Studio API mirrors the c++ API.

If the c++ API functions have default parameters, two functions are generated: one without the default parameters, and one with. The one where you can change the default parameters is post-fixed Ex, such as Soloud_init and Soloud_initEx.

As an example, here's a simple example in the C++ api:


SoLoud::Soloud soloud;
SoLoud::Speech speech;

speech.setText("Hello c++ api");

soloud.init(SoLoud::Soloud::CLIP_ROUNDOFF | 
            SoLoud::Soloud::ENABLE_VISUALIZATION)

soloud.setGlobalVolume(4);
soloud.play(speech);

// ...

soloud.deinit();
    

Converted to the GameMaker: Studio API, this becomes:


soloud = Soloud_create();
speech = Speech_create();

Speech_setText(speech, "Hello from GameMaker: Studio");

Soloud_initEx(soloud, SOLOUD_CLIP_ROUNDOFF + SOLOUD_ENABLE_VISUALIZATION, 
              SOLOUD_AUTO, SOLOUD_AUTO, SOLOUD_AUTO);

Soloud_setGlobalVolume(soloud, 4);
Soloud_play(soloud, speech);

// ...

Soloud_deinit(soloud);

Speech_destroy(speech);
Soloud_destroy(soloud);
