I've been trying to get a Windows XP vm up and running to play games on.
Using KVM-QEMU I've been able to get gpu acceleration and basically everything works perfectly except for sound.
Sound works, but it's very limited and hollow sounding without proper EAX support. Does anyone have any good tips for EAX emulation?
I've found that https://github.com/kcat/dsoal is the only solution that works for proper EAX emulation, but it requires Vista or later because it relies on MMDevAPI/WASAPI to communicate with the sound card.
I've also tried using PCI passthrough on various soundblaster cards, but none of them liked being redirected that way (very choppy audio).
