Default Re: Performance woes solved with F.E.A.R and Quake 4 and EAX HD!

I have never had any clicks or pops from my Audigy2 ZS, under and condition, until now. Installing these beta Full Open AL drivers have my hearing poping just sitting at the windows desktop.

SIGH

I Guess thats why these are Beta. To bad creative can't hire a better driver team

Hopefully your post warns people about waisting time and installing beta drivers.

I guess I lucked out including a few others.

I actually prefer the sound from the onboard sound of my nForce4 board than I do my Audigy.

Good find with the beta drivers though.

I dont have performance problems either, actually when I disable all these settings ingame, I loose a few frames but then Im able to hear the messages as well. Im using the european version of FEAR (1.0) and Windows 2000 Pro.

I cant wait until I receive my US version of FEAR from a friend, then I can patch it and see if it works better.

acrh2, KrAzYeTy, grey_1, thanks for reporting back!

Zampe, I get a similar boost, except that my min. frames increase as well (by 3fps) when I enabled all 3 sound settings. I just enabled the subtitles, so screw the (missing) radio messages. lol
