UT99 Galaxy Audio Driver Crash Win10

Getting old Windows games working.

UT99 Galaxy Audio Driver Crash Win10

Postby NightSprinter » 2017-7-13 @ 16:13

Curious, has anyone had UT99 just outright crash on Windows 10 with the Galaxy Audio Driver selected? I mean, the game works just fine on the Win98 box, and on this if I have a different driver selected. Just curious as to why Galaxy crashes.

Could you post the crash? I've had Galaxy crash sometimes in weird situations before, no matter the OS. But I haven't had Galaxy crash in Windows 10 on any Unreal Engine 1 game. (Unreal, UT99 and Deus Ex were tested)

Thing is, I can't generate a report. The window just freezes as the game opens up. I switch over to the new OpenAL renderer, and the game runs as intended.

Try setting Latency to 80 in the UnrealTournament.ini under [Galaxy.GalaxyAudioSubsystem]

If that doesn't work then could you tell me what audio device you're trying to use?

This is going to sound dumb but can you forcefully disable Data Execution Prevention (DEP aka NX Bit) on your system and run Unreal as Administrator?

Yeah, gave it a shot with NX Bit disabled. Wound up the exact same result. I'm wondering if there's something with Windows 10 (as well as versions going back to 7) that breaks compatibility with the Galaxy audio driver for the game?

Yeah, that is basically the only way for me to play it. Was just wondering, since I read inconsistent things on other sites that people supposedly got the original audio driver working in newer versions of Windows.

The FMOD and OpenAL audio devices for UT99 have really lame music playback compared to Galaxy and aren't even properly compatible with the Reverb settings in ZoneInfo actor properties. So I never really recommend those... I really don't know what's going on at your end because Galaxy works just fine for me, and this is on Creators Update apparently...

Yeah, and this was from a fresh install and update. I will see if copying the Galaxy driver from my Unreal Gold install will do anything. Also will see how it works with A3D-Live installed.

Don't try to copy Galaxy.dll from other Unreal engines to UT99, they're not guaranteed to be compatible let alone properly linkable...
