Hi Charles,
Thanks, but that makes me feel a bit guilty. One of the things I imagined when creating the Genesis 3D engine was a full virtual reality in 3d. Not just 3d audio, but an actual 3d environment as well. Personally, from my tests the best way to get the full experience is by using headphones, and if you have a set of 3d headphones the experience is even better. So I didn't really design the engine with speakers in mind although that option is still available of course. Imagine my future games like Tomb Hunter II etc sounding like Shades of Doom with, but in a true 3d environment as well. I guess what I am saying is it is hard to really do what the sighted game companies are doing such as 3d FPS style games and stick to a simple stereo format like MOTA uses. With MOTA that is fine since there is only really left and right to deal with. In other games you will have left, right, foward, backward, up, and down to deal with. That's considerably more to think about and a lot more to listen to. Also trickier to figure out as well.

headset to play it well.  Hopefully, this trend will continue, because I have 
always very much preferred using speakers rather than wearing a headset when I 
play.
