Unreal II stuttering sound...

Postby Loki the monk » Sun Feb 23, 2003 3:35 pm

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?
Loki :)
i have a bad feeling about this...

MSI KT4V mobo, xp2400, 512 ddr333, 40gb 72x hdd, geforce fx 5700 ultra, 16x dvd.

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.
