enabling Hisound messes up my NS
Well, after playing NS 2.0 for two days using low quality sound, i have grown to be somewhat annoyed by some of the sounds i hear. The LMG seems to sound too distorted, and so does the HMG and at the same time i can barely hear enemy footsteps now, but thats not my current problem.
When i first installed 2.0, i left high quality sound on because i always run with it on, all mods, including ns 1.04. As soon as i joined a server i noticed something was wrong, apparently having High Quality sound on causes my sound to be incredibly garbled and sound as if it were being played in fast forward, this also happens with any voicecomm i hear. I tried playing around with my sound settings, and making sure i disabled EAX and a3d to no avail. It always happens, whenever i turn on hisound on i restart NS for the changes to take effect and are greeted with the same choppy, distorted, fast forwarded noise. everything works somewhat fine when im using low quality sounds, but i am sure that my sound chip and drivers can provide me with high quality sound, as they support EAX and multichannel 3d sound.
Anyways, i will post my system specs and hope for someone to post a fix or at least have the team acknowledge my problem:
AMD duron 1.3 GHZ
512 DDR 2100 ram
Geforce4MX420 video card
Onboard sound: C-Media AC 97
Motheboard: ECS K7S5A
Output medium: Headphones
Any help or feedback would be appreciated.
PS: I have not tried changing audio drivers to solve this problem as i have found that the other sets of drivers for my sound chip make me unable to use voicecomm or make me have severe sound delays while playing any HL mod. The last set i tried (and all the other ones) make me have sound delays for at least the 1st 10 mins of my game, then sound distorted, and eventually sound normal.
