Feature #4: UI improvements
Select audio plugin using Audio Settings dialog
Now that Snowberry is being removed, the audio plugin selection should be provided at runtime. Ideally Doomsday should dynamically (un)load the chosen audio plugin, although asking to user to restart is also an option.
Audio|UI|Client: Selecting audio plugins in the Audio Settings dialog
The preferred audio interfaces are now configured via Config
variables. This can still be overridden with command line options,
in which case the dialog values do not have any effect.
Audio Settings is now available even when a game is not loaded.
The Dummy driver now provides Music and CD interfaces, too, to allow
disabling them individually.
#5 Updated by skyjake almost 4 years ago
- Subject changed from Select audio plugin via taskbar (in Home) to Select audio plugin via taskbar (in Audio Settings)
- Status changed from New to In Progress
The plan is to add a simple
ChoiceWidget in Audio Settings with instructions to restart Doomsday for the plugin change to take effect.
