Summary0004907: Make OpenAL settings more configurable inside TDM
DescriptionRight now most of the options are hard to enable/disable:

1) Enabling/disabling EFX requires restarting game. This is quite weird: I guess it is easy to allow enabling/disabling it on the fly, especially given that reloadSounds already reloads EFX file in-game.

2) Enabling/disabling HRTF is only possible from outside of TDM (in alsoft.ini). However, it can be configured when creating OpenAL device using OpenAL-Soft extensions. See this one:
  https://kcat.strangesoft.net/openal-extensions/SOFT_HRTF.txt

3) Allow choosing HRTF dataset in-game. This probably needs a specialized GUI screen and recommendations. Also it is necessary to know if it is OK for TDM to distribute IRCAM datasets.

4) Allow choosing sound device in-game. Right now the default device is used, and the only option to get away from default is to set a cvar before starting TDM. I have Windows in Russian, and device names are all in UTF-8, so they are very hard to specify in TDM console.

5) Make sure s_restart reinitializes everything, so that if you plug in headphones they get used afterwards (now restarting TDM is necessary).


More likely some other options can be tweaked in-game too.

We should add an EFX "Reverb Volume" slider that controls the "room" parameter.

If you don't get to this, I can look into it.

Dhewm's change doesn't appear to work in TDM ( Linux ).

I have created new issue 0005587

Dhewm has improved the initial implementation so I will try that now.

We should not mess with the "room" parameters in EAX- thats part of what gives the illusion of standing in the room.

I don't think it is normal to control EFX settings at all. The master slider is OK, but all the rest is not welcome.
The issue was original about more player-related things, like HRTF datasets, on/off switches, sound devices, ...
