You tell us.

I am sorry to the SDL list that I am going to put some stress
on Cosku in public but I have had some e-mail exchange about
zziplib problems where I did ask him to update his way to describe
a problem in a way that a developer can get an idea of what’s
going wrong. It does not look that he has learned a lot however.

And so we go again, Cosku, please write

  • the operating environment (some windows version, right?)
  • what variant SDL packages (msvc? mingw?), packaged or
    compiled yourself?
  • which version of zziplib
  • an example how you ask the mixer to load the file
  • an explanation of your findings what did gone wrong,
    like checking return codes from calls (!!).
    A thing like did not work can be a lot under the hood,
    like not finding the file, or errors during decompression.
    It is about you to narrow down the problem area, we like
    to cooperate simply to find bugs in our software but please
    do some work on your side as well. Or go and pay someone
    to do the work for you, someone to do the investment of time
    and energy to track down the problem.

first of all guido people don’t care about waht you’re thinking about my
problem description
so do what you want ‘in private’.
i apoligise because of doing it in public but guido is the guilty.

-i said msys and you probably see, w32 means “WINDOWS” so i
wrote the os
-i don’t think it’s necessary that i have to tell about my sdl compilation
type.version number should be enough and i wrote it
-zziplib version number is 0.10.27 (THE ONLY PRECOMPILED ZZIPLIB VERSION)
-an example ? did you really read my question?I said that i had succeed with
image files.It means that the code ISN’T wrong.
if you’re really curious about it so go read the SDL_Rwops tutorial.
-if i knew something about the problem,i wouldn’t had ask what was the

i don’t know if you noticed that the problem isn’t ZZ?PL?B,it’s SDL_Mixer
and i don’t understand why you’re acting so sensible about your software…
ZZIPLIB is a great library.people may have problems.It doesn’t mean that
your software is bad.
Thnx for the idea of gpaying someone to do my work.
You should understand also that people aren’t programmers from their
born.You weren’t either.----------------------------------------------------------------------------

here is what you want GUIDO

-I’m using windows XP,mingw32 v2,and msys 1.0.8
-I compiled SDL and SDL_mixer myself without any problem(Version number:
-I’m using zziplib 0.10.27 whic is the only precompiled binary
-here is how i ask the mixer to load the file

SDL_RWops *veri;
Mix_Chunk *ses;

if((veri = SDL_RWFromZZIP(“demoDATA/music.wav”, “r”)) == NULL){
printf(“ERROR: %\n”,SDL_GetError());

if(!(ses = Mix_LoadWAV_RW(veri, 0))){
   printf("ses_yukle: %s\n", Mix_GetError());

-i get SDL_Parachut Deployed error in stdout

now it’s your turn.tell me the problem…
and i don’t want to bi rude but a person who konw reading a text,could see
all of it on my msg

your problem might be here:

if((veri = SDL_RWFromZZIP(“demoDATA/music.wav”, “r”)) == NULL){
printf(“ERROR: %\n”,SDL_GetError()); /* should be “ERROR: %s\n” */

notice the missing ‘s’,

good luck,

You probably also need to open the wave file with mode “rb”
