Sound problems

Recommended Posts

I don't know if any of you can help me.I am having a lot of sound problems using Windows XP with a Videologic Sonic Fury soundcard (uses Turtle Beach Santa Cruz chip set).The following problems happen:1: When swithching to outside views or map, I loose several sounds including engine and windnoise. I can get the engine noise back by reducing to minimum throttle and then throttling back up again.2: When pressing the test button in the Beechjet, The warning sounds are incredibly quiet.3: When toggling switches it seems entirely random as to whether or not I get any clicking sound.Has anybody else had similar problems and managed to solve them.CheersNeilps. After simming for over 10 years, I only bother with 2 sims anymore. Flight Unlimited and Nomisoft Airline Simulator 2. Both light years ahead of Microsoft (after all I want a flight simulator with decent flight models, not a scenery simulator!)

Neil,I don't have the same soundcard and don't run XP so I can only offer a few suggestions.You might want to reinstall your soundcard's drivers, or even checking to see if you can find newer drivers for that card.I get the impression that some or all of your card's functions are not interacting properly with DirectX. You may want to try updating DirectX or at least running a test.Hopefully someone with a config closer to yours will come along with some helpful suggestions.I have never tried or even seen Nomisoft Airline Simulator 2 but I feel much the same about FU3 as you do.

Definitely try drivers and DirectX updates. They're usually the culprits. I don't use XP but there's a couple compatibility modes. You might try them too.
