some questiongs about sounds (ie copyright, getting them, etc.)
ok i really like the song "Wake me up Inside" by Evanessance (sp?) and i wanted to use the beginning part as whats played before you fight a big boss, maybe the final one or something. i know in console apps ur not supposed to use sounds because of high overhead or something, but to be honest im the only person who will probably play the game (maybe a few friends) and i dont do much on my comp where i need a lot of resources.
so anyway, would it be some sort of copyright infridgment (sp for sure) if i used the sound? im not going to be selling the game or anything. also, if someone could tell me a sight to get good game music, i would really appreciate it. and do sounds have to be .wav, or will .mp3 work too? finally, are there other ways to control sound besides just play? (ie stop, pause, fast forward, etc)
thank you for all your help
