HI,
I plan to make a project which should output at least 4 seperated channels. Does OpenAL support that.
If yes:
How does it work? Tutorials? Demos?

If no:
Are there other ways to have an at least 4 different audio channel output?

Thangs

OpenAL will automatically use the surround settings set for the system.

That means if I have a 6 channel soundcard and my system supports all, I can automaticly an individual 6 channel output?

I have another question. A normal 5.1 setup has in every corner a loudspeaker and one in the center. If I place the center speaker on top of the room, could I change the configuration of openal/eax/joal so, that the position of the speaker is on the top of the room now and not in the center any more?

OpenAL doesn't handle that kind of thing AFAIK. If you wanted to change that, you'd have to use whatever software controls your speakers.
