It would be great if you could get this into MANTIS. We have that queued up
so that the engineers review everything that comes in, check it and test.

The original two betas for Windows had big problems with XP - I can confirm
those myself ;-) But I've the newest version working fine on Win XP Pro SP3.

My understanding is that you load into a buffer, then you can set that
buffered audio to loop or not loop, pause, rewind, and that buffer can be
used within the 3D space from a point, and even achieve dopler effects and
distance attenuation. My understanding based on use of the library is that
32 is the maximum number its been tested with using the C++ API, though I
believe its possible to go beyond that.
