  • Bf2 sound issues

    I recently put a soundcard in my comp instead of onboard, Bf2 sounds great other than the fact that the commander voice, and other game voices have a stutter, lag sound to them. I wonder if any expert here can help me with this.

    Do you know the manufacturer of the sound card and model?

    Ive heard with X-FI cards you need to put it into "Game Mode". Also make sure you got latest drivers.

      This is definitely true. Battlefield was telling me that my hardware was incompatible with the ultra-high x-fi settings until I remembered to switch my soundcard control panel from "entertainment" to "gameing"

        The card is nothing special, $40.00 creative soundblaster Live! 24 bit. Strange because this only occurs with BF2. This card should support up to EAX 3.

          Ok, have you dloaded the latest drivers for it?

          And just check if onboards disabled in your Bios.

            Try it from the LOWEST settings first and work your way up the ladder that way.
            Also, try it with EAX off at first .....

              Can you take that card back and get an Augidy of some sort? Preferably not the Audigy 2 Value..

              It's not a "real" Soundblaster Live card because it doesn't have that EMU10K1 chip. The EAX processing is done in software rather than in hardware on that card. Probably explains the stuttering.

                Thanks for all the advice, yes onboard sound is disabled, its strange that the only game that does this is Battlefield 2, it was weird because the onboard was doing fine with it, then i put the card in and that happened. Maybe i will upgrade to a higher card, but i would like this one to work.

                  Set BF2 to use software instead of hardware for the sound.

                    Thanks, I will give that a try, I'm just wondering if that will provide a performance hit.

                      Would an Audigy 4 solve this problem does anyone figure?
