Allied Assault and ended up turning OFF hardware sound, because it wasnt providing anything more than bloody irritating ‘vaulted’ echos all over the place. But I don’t think I’ll participate. MS later put the latest release into the first version of Windows XP. I have tried copying an older version of a3dapi 2. All the support for A3D hardware acceleration had been removed.

They will not be the only ones without any new drivers. Wed Feb 07, 2: Yeah, right, that really arouses me, thanks.

Writing an alternative Win XP/ Win 7 driver for Aureal Vortex 2 /AU8830

That way it might be really easy to find it via search engines. Prefer long-scaring-hype loud slogans from some consumer posters?

Xl been seeing some strange issues that appear to be related to this driver. I was testing win7 on the weekend for the second time now and was pissed again whan the latest build did not recognize my and had to change back to au830 audio chipset which sounds a lot lamer and a lot noisier.

Card works fine on 9x so I just dualboot, but I’d prefer to find a way to make it work for completionisms sake and because this is a dual P3 and I enjoy using 2K for it seeing both processors. This disclaimer is brought to you thanks to a8830 BSA. I google for my issue Audio halts after a few minutes of if I use A3Dand I see references to fixes or patches, but each and every link and source is dead.


Diamond Monster (Vortex 2) + Windows XP = Waaaah

Nov 7, Posts: What really bites is that there’s no support for Aureal chipsets in Vista. Anyone know what my problem is?

The costs of the proceedings qu8830 been too high for Aureal and forced it into bankcrupcy. So I think they have the source code and did some quick ports for their newer Windows versions. I know, but Silent Loon seems doesn’t care or does? Aureal was crushed by Creative before Windows was even ay8830, so there’s no hope of any WinXP native drivers My understanding is that after Aureal were crushed, Microsoft were extremely unhappy about the state of the Win2K drivers.

Any Aureal based card is a dust collector in Vista. The company is now bankrupt and there are major driver issues. It reinstalled the Diamond Monster on boot, sound played back These games support EAX 4. I’ve also added a note that these drivers are ai8830 only.

These are updated and from the reports they work well in XP. You want a comparisson between a3d 2.

A3D was able to calculate the waveforms of au883 according to the reflections of the surfaces they had passed. Most likely most of not-so-simple audio controllers use similar scheme. From what I recall you’d also get these cool variations on sound depending on the environment, like if there were different objects or different things in the room the sound would get distorted differently.


VOGONS • View topic – Vortex 2 in Windows

I’ve read that the issues with the Vortex 2 drivers were pretty much solved with Windows XP In my opinion, there are only 2 reasons to continue using these cards: I’m really curious as to how you knew what to change to make it work with Vista and now Windows 7 It’s totally great, whether I have Equalizer control or not.

So, I hop into the BIOS and disable onboard sound and then I pulled the Vortex 2 out of my closet, popped it in there and XP recognized it and used the built in drivers and I had full-on Vortex 2 goodness. The beta drivers I found searching around; I’m not entirely sure au88830 I found them.

Qu8830 the timeline as I experienced it: Thank you so much for this! au88330
