That's only for DirectSound interface (Thief DS and Deus Ex Invisible War use a very particular configuration where the OpenAL interface is already internally wrapped to DirectSound).
Unreal 2 only offers EAX through OpenAL, it's why is a good benchmark for OpenAL+EAX (UT 2004 can do EAX through OpenAL AND DirectSound)
Audigy 2 ZS drivers work but in Unreal 2 (Severnaya level, the one I use as audio capabilities/performance test)
there's a crash caused by a DPC Violation EDIT: it was due to savegame data, solved 😀
So for now the only real solution for Unreal 2 is EAXEFX (on Windows 10 systems): https://github.com/bibendovsky/eaxefx
No crashes in UT 2004 (or Unreal 2 in other levels so far), always for the combination OpenAL+EAX 😉
