ATI, SB Audigy2, FS9, ATC Stutters

Recommended Posts

Hey All,Although I'm generally pleased with my ATI's image quality in FS9, every time ATC talks on the radios I get a stutter. Sometimes it's a little "hic-up", sometimes it's a major stutter. It's driving me nuts. I've tried new drivers for both the sound and video. I've turned the hardware excelleration up and down trying every combination possible. I have numerous other games (including FS2002) and multi-media applications installed. None of them have ever had this problem. Anybody else having these problems?WinXP HomeP4 2.81024Mb RDRAMATI 9700 Pro 128MbAudigy 2Later, Dave

I have a 9700 Pro and an Audigy2 and I don't get any of the problems described. I am using the latest drivers for the Audigy2 and the latest Omega drivers based off Catalyst 3.6.I suggest you download the latest Audigy2 and Radeon 9700 Pro Catalyst drivers if you haven't already.

In the Fsim settings there's a option for sound. My Audigy1 defaulted to low. I turned to to high. Have you checked that setting?

Make sure you set DirectX sound acceleration down to Basic if you are having these troubles. Maybe reinstall DirectX as well first. You SHOULD NOT be having this problem.Noel

When ATC is talking to me it's okay. For me that's bad because I'm a major AI junkie. Looks like I'll be clinging to '02 for awhile 'til I figure this out. ANyway thanks for the help.

The Audigy drivers are up to date. I made sure all my drivers were current when I installed FS9. Thanks.

If it happens when ATC talks to other planes but not when ATC calls you, it's likely NOT a videocard or soundcard related problem.Have you installed any AI addons or similar that may not be 100% compatbile with FS2004?

Very slight "echo" here, but random, not on ATC communications to me, just general FS ATC chatter to others.ATI Cat3.6, SBAudigy 5.12.1.383, Intel chipset 5.1.2600.0. 9700Pro128, on ASUS P4PE.Haven't reduced to "basic", but trying "standard" this AM - was on max - full right slider acceleration.FYI - I ran into this with FS8 and went full review with both MS & SB, to no solution. Not preventing enjoyment of sim - but - I am able to hear a slight echo on about 15-20% of ATC .wavs.

ALong with all the other useful (or otherwise replies) have you made sure your sound card is not in the PCI slot next to the AGP slot?If it is there move it to a different slot as it is sharing the IRQ with the graphics card.I know things these days are supposed to be able to share IRQs but not all setups know this :-)Rgds
