Hi,
Unreal II- Top game- awesome graphics, really slick, an absolute joy to play (especially after installing new drivers for my graphics card!)... but the sound sometimes stutters during cutscenes and occasionally during game play... I have an MSI KT4Vmobo with onboard sound (AC'97), although i've just installed the latest drivers for it, I have a feeling i might need a sound card with a bit more zing??
Can anyone shed any light on this? is it better to have a seperate sound card?
Thanks,
Loki :)

For intense games like that you definately nee an expansion sound card. Onboard sound mooches off your cpu, moreso with the amd's. Get a soundblaster audigy and you'll be set

I too am having issues with the sound. Sometimes the game actually quits and comes up with some error.

I am running onboard sound.

ummm seems like I have to spend yet more money on it :)

Make sure you disable EAX

It will do that regardless of if you have onboard sound or not. My SB Live! 5.1 did it originally. I read that if you copy the Defopenal32.dll from the latest patched version of Unreal Tournament 2003 it helps. For me it took away all of the stuttering. It's a slightly newer version of the file than what is installed with Unreal 2.

I think they may be coming out with a patch for Unreal 2 something soon. (At least I hope)

Actually if you don't have a copy of UT2K3 available, message me and I can email you the file.
