Recommended Posts

Hello simpilots, I just recently installed fs2002 and noticed that I get these horrible static sounds (I think when the ATC is saying something?).Does anyone else have these problems? If so what is the solution?thank you, George

I would check for updated drivers for your controller chips, sound, graphics adapter, OS, DirectX, etc. Unless you know what is in your system, it is hard to help.One way is to select START, programs, accessorcies, system tools, system information and click on the various selections.

I have the same brand of card and had the same trouble. I solved it by turning down the hardware acceleration from "full" to "basic". The popping and static went away, with minimal reduction in sound quality. You can access the setting through the control panel. I don't recall exactly where it is in 98, but in XP, it's in sound&audio devices/audio/sound playback-advanced/performance.JS

Well...I have a VIA p4X266 board, with a soundblaster PCI128 card...what a pain in the butt its been...The best I have been able to do so far:1) Put the pci card in the lowest available PCI slot, as far from the AGP as possible.2) Install the latency patch for VIA chipsets (which had a marginal effect.3) try to isolate the PCI card to have it's own IRQ.4) Turn dxdiag hardware acceleration down to standard from full.That's the best I've come up with, with a few pops and cracks, even when playing mp3's... its quite a bummer, and reverting to the AC97 card causes my joystick (force feedback 1, serial) not to function... pain in the butt!!anyway, if anyone else has any tips, I'd be open to themJonas
