Audio Sync and Slowdown SOLVED!
Posted 11 June 2005 - 03:15 PM Edited by Overture, 11 June 2005 - 03:28 PM.
Anyways, I solved the sync problems, and it might be something that's affecting you other people.
The solution lay in a very old problem online. Winxp and 2k incorrectly set the SBlive drivers (and audigy I believe) to EMULATED. The trouble is, it's what directsound uses to remember whether it's hardware or software, and my dxdiag thought I had no hardware buffer.
Try start-run-dxdiag[enter] and look at the "sound" or "sound1" tab. If it says the device is EMULATED then this may work for you, it worked for me.
The only way to fix it is to do a regedit (Start-run "regedit"[enter]
and search for every instance of the entry "Device Presence".
Once there, in each one there should have some or all of the following:
Anyways, in most of these in my registry, VxD and WDM were set to 0, and emulated was set to 1. I modified the values so Emulated read 0 and VxD and WDM read as 1.
You will have to re-run DXDIAG (start-run "dxdiag"[enter]) and set the hardware accelleration back to full and test it.
I retested with dxdiag and the hardware buffer works fine. On top of that, the Sync errors and pops and clicks are completely gone from the game.
Hope this helps you out, and works for people. If you need more explicit instructions for using regedit or dxdiag just ask and I'll post a better guide.
Good luck with this one.

All of my WDM and VxD settings in the registry were on 1 and Emulated on 0, but I changed all emulated settings to 1 but it didn't work.

Sorry about your prob domin8or. The idea was to turn OFF emulated and turn ON wdm and vxd, so this wouldn't have helped you anyways since it was already like that.

Also, now when I try to do it again it will just say it doesn't detect my audio card.

Also, re-install directx straight afterwards and test it, and your drivers as well.

I have a SigmaTel on board card. This is the only game I have ever had trouble with so far.
