Default Sacred 2 - Blog Update @ IGN

June 21st, 2008, 18:24
The official Sacred 2 blog at IGN has a new entry on progamming 5.1 sound:
Lars Hammer (37) is the lead audio designer and audio/network programmer on Sacred 2 - Fallen Angel. Today he will shed some light on the special aspects of Sacred 2's 5.1 music - and prick up your ears too!

At demonstrations and press events I always point out that Sacred 2 is one of the few games featuring an actual 5.1 soundtrack. Usually, people reply "Well, that's not really that new a feature. When I play xyz I always hear something on the back speakers, too…"

Therefore, I'd like to tell you a bit more about this subject.
More information.

5.1 ? Yeah, but who actually HAS a back speaker on his or her "workplace" where the PC is installed ?

Plus, for me, who usually uses headphones(and has never head speakers this far), this means nothing at all. Sorry.

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)

I feel like enough of a nerd for PC gaming as it is. I wouldn't want to have to explain why I have umpteen little speakers scattered around my computer chair.
