[openal] distance model questions

I mean the former. For simplicity, I probably want a boxed shape, and the axis will always be in respect to the global x/y/z axis.

Do you mean the source plays completely centered as long as it's within the specified range, and from the edge of those bounds to some radius it interpolates with the source's real position? Or do you mean it interpolates between a distance of 0 and the specified range edge?

The former is doable, but may be a bit more involved than the latter. It also depends if the ranges are axis-aligned or not (that is, if x_range is along the global X or the listener's local X, etc), and whether it's oval-shaped or box-shaped.
