View Full Version : No sound in-game with a Soundblaster Live

09-04-2001, 08:24 PM
I cant get the sound working in-game in x-wing alliance - i get music fine, and both sound and music are fine in the menus, but when i actually get into the game, no sound effects/speech at all.

My sound card is a soundblaster live 1024 value and i'm running windows2000 (i had no problems with the game under win2k when i was using a soundblaster64)

Does anyone have any ideas how to sort this?

It's probably the SB drivers.

I'm using the same sound card in W98 and it works fine, even with Enviromental Audio turned on.

Check the latest SB Live drivers for Win2k

Its not the drivers - I've been running the newest version of the sblive win2k drivers for the last month or so now, and i redownloaded and installed them again last night just to make sure - still no luck. I also tried fiddling with the hardware sound acceleration settings, but no luck there either.
I am having absolutely no problems whatsoever with sound in any other applications or games - it is solely x-wing alliance and the in-game engine/cockpit/laser sounds (music works perfectly and the sound is fine in the menus http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/frown.gif)

So...it seems the drivers are ok.
I have the impression that the ingame sound is a different file that the menu's one.

The easiest way could be to save your pilot elswhere, uninstall XWA and reinstall it.

Fondas, you are a genius!
I dunno how i never noticed that myself - the installer must not have worked ok under win2k or it wasn't detcting the cd right because of win2k, but anyway i found the files for the ingame sounds and just copied them to my x-wing directory and success! I can now play x-wingA in its full glory http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/smile.gif
