Default Re: Colin McRae DIRT and patch 1.1

if you have VISTA and X-Fi

go to dirt main directory you will find OpenAL32.dll rename it to OpenAL32.bak

this will force the game to use the native OpenAL instead of the wrapper.

set DSM to high and it sounds like a totally different game!!!

note: this will also decrease your FPS

i got the information from codemasters.com forums. seems retail version has quite a bit audio problems. this is also a temporary fix to all the audio issues.
