I installed these and prefer them over the NVIDIA audio drivers. I'm keepin' 'em!

Well, maybe not...

Apparently EAX is broken in these drivers. BF2 is unplayable using Hardware with EAX enabled. Every sound effect is at max volume. In other words, you can hear tanks, helicopters, soldiers firing, etc. all over the map just like they were right beside you. Disabling EAX helped, but then the sound was crackly and stuttering. Setting the audio options to Software with EAX enabled sounded just fine. Question though... If all I have is onboard sound with Realtek drivers installed, then what is the difference between the game using Hardware or Software? Surround sound seems to be working with Software also. I know when I had my Sound Blaster Live! 24Bit card, I had to use Software as well. BTW, this sound problem doesn't occur with the NVIDIA Audio drivers with Hardware and EAX enabled. I may go back to them, I guess.
