FS9 Sound Stutter

Recommended Posts

So I'm back to FS9, after giving up on FSX until either (a) they fix it, or (:( Santa leaves me a Cray computer under the tree this year so I can run FSX, and I was hoping that a sound stutter problem I was having would magically disappear after reinstalling FS9. Guess again.The equipment list goes like this: P4 @ 2.4ghz, 2gb RAM, Audigy 4 soundcard, nVidia GEForce 6200, blah, blah, blah. I can get the visual part of FS9 to be pretty stutter-free by tweaking this and that, but the ATC voices sound like Porky Pig with the hiccups. I don't know what changed because when I first got FS9, it didn't do that. One day it did and now I can't get rid of it. Well, that's not entirely true. I can make it better if I fly with NO weather. I've massaged the weather/cloud/display/sound settings until my eyes cross. I've played with the sound acceleration thing but no luck.I don't want to fly with no weather at all, so what I do is tune the radios to an off-channel to keep the irritation factor down and then tune the ATIS of the field where I'm going to land. I've given up on flight following or, heaven forbid, an IFR flight. Any other ideas?Th-th-th-th-thanks!

Try reducing the sound acceleration to "basic" (its on the sound tab when you run DXdiag)

I had exactly the same problem a while back triggered by weather. The 100% cure for me was to open the pc casing and apply an external fan.Don't know if you've tried this,but it cured mine immediately.regards Jim

If you are running an AGP video card and an Audigy 4 it may be that you need to dial down the PCI latency on the video card to allow the sound card to get enough CPU cycles allocated to it.Do a search for PCI latency on the forums...lots already written on this.RegardsBob ScottATP IMEL Gulfstream II-III-IV-VSantiago de Chile

I've already tried the basic acceleration and I've got more fans inside than a sultan and his harem, but the PCI latency sounds like something to try.Thanks to all for the input, I do appreciate it.B-b-b-b-bye!
