How Do I Solve Sound Issues?

ID #1029 : Revision: 1.0 - Last update: 2006-06-06 03:32 by : Ruin

Poor sound performance, popping, or muffled sounds may be helped by the following procedures:

Creative Labs PCI Series | OS: Win98, WinME

  • From the Ghost Recon main menu screen, go to Options | Sound and
    check the "Use Alternate Cache" checkbox.
  • If you hear odd or loud echoes when entering houses or caves, uncheck the "Use EAX" checkbox on the same page.
  • Exit the game and restart.

If none of these help.

  • Go to: Control Panel | Multimedia | Audio | Advanced Properties | Performance. Adjust the Hardware acceleration slider all the way to the left (Emulation Only).

Creative SBLive and 5.1 Series | OS: Win98, WinME

  • Go to: Control Panel | Multimedia | Audio | Advanced Properties | Performance.
  • Adjust the Hardware acceleration slider all the way to the left (Emulation Only).

Creative SBLive and 5.1 Series | OS: Win2K

  • Get the latest Win2K drivers for your card--for most of you, this will be Creative's site, www.soundblaster.com.

If this doesn't help:

  • Go to: Control Panel | Sounds and Multimedia | Audio | Advanced | Performance.
  • Adjust the Hardware acceleration slider all the way to the left (Emulation Only).

Creative SBLive and 5.1 Series | OS: WinXP Home and Pro

If the problem persists:

  • Go to: Control Panel | Sounds and Multimedia | Audio | Advanced | Performance.
  • Adjust the Hardware acceleration slider all the way to the left (Emulation Only)

Turtle Beach Santa Cruz | OS: Win98, Win2K Should be similar.
(Also VideoLogic Sonic Fury)

  • Get the latest drivers from Turtle Beach (dated 1-15-2001)
  • Open the Santa Cruz Control Panel and check the following settings:
  • Main Tab: Set the Master Volume to the highest setting, and make sure the button under the slider is on. Set Appropriate speaker mode, and VersaJack setting (should be analog in most cases).
  • Mixer Tab: Set the Wave Out Volume to the highest setting and make sure the button under the slider is on. Adjust this setting later to get a comfortable play level within the game.
  • Effects Tab: Make sure both Effect1 and Effect2 are OFF.
  • Synth Tab: Set Max hardware notes to 64, and max software notes to 128.
  • Other Tab: Enable 3D Stereo Enhance, turn off Legacy DOS, and do enable Direct Sound Acceleration.

A-bit AU10

  • Run dxdiag and set the Sound Acceleration slider to the second notch (Basic).
