I'm wondering if someone can help me with this.
What I'm trying to do: Play Bioshock with EAX
What I have: An XP PC with an x-fi sound card. A retail boxed version of Bioshock. A Steam version of Bioshock
I can't install from the retail version as the installer does a 2K games server check, which have now been shut down (irrelevant as my XP PC is not connected to the web). In the absence of a response, the installer deletes the files.
Steam no longer runs on XP (irrelevant as my XP PC is not connected to the web)
Any ideas how to fudge this to get it working. I get that 'EAX isn't that big a deal' however that's what I want to do. 2k games support answer on this is essentially '*shrug*, we don't know'
