Demo: No sound effects, error on exit

Postby Aionism » Sat Dec 27, 2008 10:12 am

I downloaded the demo and there are no sound effects. I can hear the beeps from the text and I can hear the ambient noise, but no lasers or explosions. My computer:

Intel Core 2 Duo E6400
2GB DDR2 675 RAM
ASUS Xonar DX sound card with newest drivers
ATI X1950Pro 256MB PCI-E
Windows Vista Business SP1

Here's the error, it only happens when I exit the game, so I'm much more concerned with fixing the sound rather than this:

I figured it out. Go to the Xonar DX Audio Center and turn off DS3D GX 2.0. I thought I heard something about a problem with Darwinia and DS3D, but I didn't think it applied in this situation.

Glad to hear you fixed it, hope you like it and get the Darwinia and Multiwinia pack.
