I couldn't find any replies related to my problem, so I figured it was okay to post this.
I have a sound problem that occurs sometimes when I save or I look at the map. As soon as I go back to the game after saving or looking at the map, an obnoctious sound starts. It sounds like an engine of a vehicle, but it drowns out almost everything else. It usually does not last long, but it is unpredictable in it's duration and it's volume. Usually I just unplug my headphones until it's gone, but it does get rather annoying, playing without sound and all. So can anyone help me with this?

Reporting in on my result to the Thunderstorm/Rain bug:

Results: DXDIAG (Basic Audio Acceleration) was the fix.

Kit is:
ASUS A8N-SLi-Deluxe (AMD XP64 3800+ 2.4G - no O/C.)
Onboard Realtek AC'97 (with linked ref drivers from above - no change.)
- using simple powered pair on LINE OUT with 2CH Stereo on their stupid little app. (It really is stupid.)
ATI Radeon X1300 Pro (newest Catalyst drivers since Day One)


This is all brand new gear. I upgraded my kit and started experiencing the T-Storm Audio Bug. This wasn't happening on my K7V board with Realtek (whatever rev) sound. Very troubling, but after grinding through the EAX and driver-based fixes, the elegance of the DXDIAG resolution is maddeningly effective.

Cheers.

Hey... I'm having a problem but I don't know PRECISELY, which of these will fix my problem.

In SA single player, unless I move the camera RIGHT UP NEXT TO THE CAR, I cant hear the engine. Same for planes, and heli engines. I'm running windows XP (no sp2 biggrin.gif ) and have the most recent Directx and Audio drivers for my sound card (Turtle Beach Riviera 5.1)

Any help would be much appreciated. inlove.gif

I am using a sound blaster audigy SE.

I am hearing clicks and pops when objects collide. Lots of high pitch pops and clicks. VERY annoying...

The problem is I don't know which fix I need to use. There's a great list of fixes but there's no explanation of what problems the fixes fix.... confused.gif

I guess I'll try getting creative's newest driver. Seems like I did that right before I installed this sound card a month or two ago.

FULL INSTALL OF GTA (Music on Hard Drive) FIXED CRASH AT INTRO SCREEN

My game installed but always crashed at the main intro screen. I updated the drivers on my soundmax intergrated sound card, disabled sound hardware acceleration, and other solutions in the forum.

Then, after finding a post that said that reinstalling might fix the intro screen crash, I uninstalled/reinstalled 3 times, but I always used custom to unselect installing music to my hard drive to save space. That didn't work either.

But then I uninstalled again and chose a full install, and now the game started up without errors.

Can't say this will work for everyone though.

There is a patch. Rockstar released a 1.01 patch which has the "rain bug" in its list of fixes.

I have Realtek AC'97 Audio. Would it be better for me to just only downgrade EAX.dll? Anyway, I realized that when the sound cuts off randomly, all you have to do is to make your way to a save diskette.

Don't forget to try dropping your DirectX 'Hardware Sound Acceleration Level' to 'Basic acceleration' before replacing files, etc.

That's been the standard first-try fix for sound issues in SA for a couple of years smile.gif

Update: The Realtek AC'97 Audio Vista drivers doesn't have sound issues when it rains. So basically, upgrading to Windows Vista fixes any sound problem you may have. But it would be better to buy a Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi along with some Logitech surround sound speakers if you have XP. Also, remember that the "rain bug" can be fixed by simply saving game or lowering down the hardware acceleration to Basic (there's none of this in Vista, though). smile.gif

But note that downgrading EAX and changing your speaker setup layout configurations will not work! It's better the leave it as "Stereo". The only thing that works (at least for me in Windows XP) is using "Basic" acceleration.

*Patch v1.01* amazingly doesn't fixes the "rain bug" that they said they fixed!

How about a sound fix for Vista?
I have :

Logitech Headset
Audigy LS Series (based on PC Wizard 2008)

Problems :
I can't hear the radio...
I can't hear any of CJ or peds or his homies talking when doing something except pain sounds and at some cutscenes, CJ talking one sentence and another sentence can't be heard.

What does Vista have in place of the dxdiag tool?

I found this somewhere else:

QUOTE
Windows Vista audio stack does notsupport hardware acceleration (precisely
because of issues on Windows XP that required turning it off more often than
not).


And here:

QUOTE
You see, they cut out the DirectSound layer in Vista, and thus any games that rely on DirectSound for hardware-accelerated sound will be reduced to software acceleration.


I don't have answers, other than having a dual-boot of Vista/XP and installing games on XP. Until Microsoft comes up with a solution in Vista SP1, those people are SOL.

It'd be good to keep these audio fixes updated for Vista, so SA can still be played.

Okay I've tried a lot of things mentioned in this thread but I still keep encountering loss of sound. Its usually caused by rain/rainstorms as it clashes with other background sounds. After this point my sounds start stuttering but nothing I can't handle. Then after a couple of car changes my sound disappears completely (besides the radio).

Things I've tried:

Updated Realtek drivers
Installed new EAX .dll
Updated to the latest patch
Changed Direct X acceleration - This makes my sound crackle


I can't really try the downgrading of Direct X because other games require me to play with 9.0c. Any other suggestions? I wish Rockstar had an option to turn off this EAX stuff, its blatantly part of the problem. I'm on Win XP SP2

Does this information also fix the same issue with RealTek HD Audio devices?

My only problem, and I have XP and I have Realtek HD sound, is that I cannot get the user radio to remember the MP3's in the folder! When I start a new game I always have to scan again, and if i have it set to radio, I can just go to the save screen in my safe house come back out to the car and I have lost it again! I am not a big fan of hip hop anf gangsta music, so my User radio is very important!

Anyone come across his problem?

I've actually posted on a seperate thread. It's been fine the last week but in the last 3 days any time I go near and get into a car the sound crackles and continues to. I've just bought GTA:SA on steam so it's latest version. I've done everything I can from that list and the noise is driving me crazy.
After testing just now it crackles as soon as I load a game. sad.gif

Hey, I've read through all of these posts and I haven't seen anybody who's got my problem.

I just installed the game about a week ago and I've been playing nonstop with no problems. And then all of a sudden today my audio is out of sync, but only in the cutscenes.

I've tried adjusting the acceleration level, downloaded the patch, and just about all of the other simple fixes that worked for other people. None of them have worked for me. I even reinstalled the game yet the problem remains. The sound works fine everywhere else in the game, it's just out of sync in all of the cutscenes. And the sound works fine in every other program on the computer, so I think it's a problem with the game.

The problem is, I'm playing on my roommate's computer and he's out of town for the weekend. That being the case, I don't know his hardware and can't post it. All I know is we've been running the game at top graphics for the past week without a hitch, and then suddenly today everything falls apart. If there's a way I can fix this without having to update drivers or anything, that would be great. I'd feel better if I didn't have to download anything or update his computer without him knowing.

The audio in cutscenes goes out of sync only if you turn off the sound hardware acceleration. Make sure it's at the highest level. Also, try deleting the gta_sa.set file from the San Andreas User Files folder.
