What is the Ogg Vorbis audio file format (.ogg files)?
Ogg Vorbis is a free
(public-domain) audio file format that compares to MP3 in terms of quality/size.
In order to use it with Adventure
Maker, you must download the free Ogg Vorbis codec available at the following URL:
The files compressed in the Ogg
Vorbis format usually have the ".ogg" extension.
Important note: when you distribute your project, make sure that the
codec (downloadable from the link above) is included in the installation package of your
setup program, and that it is automatically executed at the end of the installation
process (to do so, just add it to the list of "root files" and "files to
run at the end of the installation" in the "Distribution Options" window).
