No, sadly I don't have onboard sound or an older card. But I think you're right, it's the same problem as the CTD many people are having. Becuase they can only play with sound disabled. So it's clearly a SWBF2 compatiblity issue. I hope LA can come up with a solution and/or patch! If not, I think I will have a 1/2 a game. I don0t want to spend on a new soundcard and find out it doesn't work!
