Ok i been trying to get A3D sound working in st voyager EF. now i have both a diamond mx300 and an aureal 2500 that both support a3d 2 i guess
i can't use the diamond drivers at all since i have an intel 815 chipset and they though an error about the pci bus not being primary there is some string u edit in an inf file to disable the check but the diamond driver don't seem to have the string.
if i use version 2041 of the drivers witch people seem to say is the best version to use everything sounds like crap crackly sounds and what not.
if i go to 2048 the sounds are better however if ur firing the hand phaser for more then a couple seconds then the phaser sound just stops. if u stop firing and start again its fine again for a couple seconds then stops .not sure if there is any other sound issues but that seems to be the only one i found in the 5-10 mins i played
if i try to upgrade to 2050 witch seems to be the last version it totally breaks windows and it won't boot up u have to boot in safe mode and pruge everything to do with aureal vortex to get windows to boot normally again
i've tired version 2030, 2031, 2035 ,2040 and none of them work any better. i was going to try 2016 and 2010 but they have the same issue as the diamond driver they don't have the string in the inf to disable the pci bus check and i tired manually adding the string to the same spot were it is in the newer driver but it didn't help
the other thing i noticed is the game shuts off a3d every time time u shut the game off and restart it it don't stay on
game is just the base game with patch 1.2 no exp packs i read some people saying the ep breaks a3d so i didn't install that.
the sound is the same weather on the diamond card or the aureal card. this is under windows 98.
anyone have any suggestion how to get a3d working properly does a3d just not work good in this game. i see sites saying it also support eax but there is no eax setting in any of the menus.
