D2X w32 sound problem

Post by bear » Sun Nov 06, 2005 1:12 am

(I didn't post this in the bug report thread because this is not about any apparent bug in the program)

I get a constant "crackling" sound in DX2 v. 1.48
whenever any weapons are fired. This is present
regardless of what sound detail settings I use.
I haven't noticed this in any other Descent game
including D1x

I have AC97 onboard sound and tried both the cmedia
v2.048 and realtek v377 drivers. Before I have to
buy a new sound card, is there any way to get rid of this "crackling" noise I have been getting?

This has been covered before.
Goto D2X-W32 Bug Report And Suggestions Thread page3 and look near the bottom of the page - Starting with a post from sir-qwerty.
Have fun! :P
