I am using vorbis right now for sound decompression for a game
(Barbaric Smackdown). It works fine *except* for a clicking noise that
is being introduced into one of the sound effects, which I am led to believe
is a beta 3 bug that is being fixed (if not then I will bug Monty about it!)
I did a product review of Miles a little over a year ago for gdmag.
It's good but it's a bit old.
Anyway, Vorbis is working great for me so far. With an un-optimized audio
manager system I can stream 3-4 compressed sounds (music track, 3
ambient sounds) using only 5% of the CPU on an Athlon 500. Aside from
that I use it to uncompress a whole slew of sound effects into pcm files
at install time.

Umm... can't you just make this a compiler switch? You're using Visual C++ 6
right? That seems better than mucking up the source files.
