View Full Version : Sound problem

10-23-2005, 04:00 PM
hi, my sound blaster audigy2ZS works fine on every game and every movie but why the hell do i get stuttering sticking sounds so often when i play SWBF1+ 2beta...

its like this : i play, everything is OK with the sound and suddenly theres a place where the sound stucks from an explosion, or the sound of a vehicle-- but the vehicle isnt there anymore for maybe 2 min.

an explosion makes this : BOOM, ok .... but when the sound stucks it makes BOOM,BO,BO,BO,BO,BO,BO,BO,BO,BO...

i dont know what this is and also dont know how to solve this problem...
i hope u understand what i mean and know how to solve this ****

i have the latest creative drivers,updates..

I see you have the latest audio drivers, have you also tried updating your Video driver? I know that doesn't make sense, but you never know! Do you have on-board sound? If you do, enable it and see if that works.

Hope this helps!

its a soundblaster, so NO, its not onboard

and i also have the latest driver for my geforce 6600gt

Did you laready try to play the game with your audio settings on Dolby Surround or 5.1 or 7?

Same sound card, same problem. This happens randomly with any sound. I haven't started messing with my sound settings yet... Its hard to trouble shoot, because it happens randomly and does not always happen.

and yes, i turned settings to 5.1...because i have 5.1 boxes from creative

I've got a brand new Creative X-Fi and my sound is messed up too. I have new drivers for everything and just did a fresh XP install. The problem is mostly with the music skipping and some ambient noise stuttering.

why does this happen to creative products only ?

I also have the same problem with my USB Creative Audigy 2 NX external sound device and my Creative I-Trigue 3600 the sound stutters constantly.

While the sound stutters the graphics also freeze up at the same time as well.
This happens on Star Wars Battlefront 2, Black & White 2, Pro Evoluton Soccer 5 etc.
So I'm stuck, I can't play anything at the moment.

Theres this annoying Alarm Sound that keeps beeping when i play through the Game, even when im on the ground i still hear it. Is there a way to turn it off or is it supposed to beep like that.

Must be a driver problem, or LA hates Creative and wrote in code to break on their hardware.

11-10-2005, 07:30 PM
I haven't heard a beeping, but every once in a while there's an ear-piercing burst of static that makes you fling off your headphones. I guess LA thinks you'll fall asleep or something...

same problem here, i had the problem with SWBF1 and now with SWBF 2. using Creatives openAL beta driver atm. had the problem in SWBF 1 with the earlier official driver set.

11-11-2005, 09:24 PM
Now that you mention that, I seem to remember that happening to me with BF1 also. I had an Audigy 2 card before.

why cant lucas arts fix that ??
i cant belive that 1 of the best soundcards isnt supported optimal for swbf1+2

I'm just curious, are you guys having sound problems with the DVD or CDROM version? I have the DVD version. I'm just wondering if maybe one or the other has problems or if it's software. I don't know if they run the music off the DVD/CD or the hard drive.

11-12-2005, 08:55 PM
The music should be running off the hard drive. After you get by the cd check, you can normally take the cd/dvd out of your computer and the game will run fine.

Play Hoth and run away from the Battle, then try not to listen to the Music but only the Sounds :ears1:.

Its like an Alarm Sound and its through the whole Game, its only when im on a Vehicle that its off. its like sweesh, sweesh, sweesh when you are inside a security building and the Alarm goes off.

Is it a Setting or something, because its not my Sound Card.

11-13-2005, 07:53 AM
...its not my Sound Card.
and you know that becasue?

11-13-2005, 08:07 AM
Because all my other Games work fine with no problem at all.

Are you hearing the sound aswell, or is it just a setting in the Game.

11-13-2005, 10:49 AM
Oh, sorry I slightly misread your post... Its not a setting in the game, its a bug in the game. I don't get an alarm sound, but I get a random game sound repeated over and over until it stops randomly.

[EDIT for post below: Yea, I know thats what you meant. No one has found a solution yet...]

11-13-2005, 11:23 AM
thats exactly what i ment
