Cutscene sync

On some mission cutscenes, when a character speaks,

some of the line doesn't match their mouth.

 

But it seems to match the cutscene video, subtitles etc.. (Like if

in a cutscene, a character fires a gun. The fire and sound matches).

It only doesn't seem to match their mouth. But not all lines are

messed, some are synced nicely.

 

Is this normal for everyone?

 

I tried both, Frame limiter on and off.

Playing in Window 98 Compatibility mode.

Doesn't fix the problem.

Start > Run > Type 'dxdiag' > Click on the Sound tab.

 

What level is your sound acceleration at?

Basic acceleration, if I set it to Full I will get audio problems in game.

Like no sound at all when it rains or whatever.

I'm not sure if it will help you or not as I'm not too good with these sound issues but if your up for it try reinstalling the game and see if that helps your issue any.

That's your problem right there. Basic or No acceleration will always give you an audio lag and sadly, there's nothing you can do about it.

 

I have my sound acceleration at None and the audio lag too, I have just learnt to live with it.

Thanks for pointing out my problem.

I will test on Standard of Full. smile.gif

 

Update : Tried both, it's still the same.. I'll go try download older version of eax.dll.

Update2 : eax.dll 3.0.6.6 is used, but still the same. Probably everyone have it. (It's this mission cutscene called "wear flower in your hair").

Btw, some part are synced properly, only a few lines aren't.

Have you tried updating your sound card drivers?

Do this, then delete the gta_sa.set file located in My Documents \ GTA San Andreas User Files

To be honest, I don't know how to update my sound card driver.

I have an onboard soundcard, when I reformatted and installed the driver. It didn't work.

 

So I installed another soundcard, I don't know what is it called, but I went to dxdiag

and check @ Sound, Device name is "SB Live! [D000]" .

 

If anyone don't mind, can you help me find a link to download the correct driver?

There should be a version stated alongside it. What does it say?

I suppose it is Creative sound blaster? If so, here is the link.

 

EDIT: Beaten.

Yeah, it's Sound blaster which my current driver is.

I will go update it, thanks everyone for your help. biggrin.gif

 

@ Girish

5.12.0001.0252

 

UPDATE : I installed a new driver, it didn't have sounds at all.

So I reinstalled back my old driver from the disc.

Then I started GTA SA, started the very same mission which I had sync problem.

 

Then everything was fixed! Now it sync properly.

All I did was reinstall my sound driver, it was the same version when I started this thread.

 

Acceleration level was Basic, as stated from girish, Basic or No acceleration would give me lag.

But my setting was Basic.

 

Now the question is, how did reinstalling driver (same version) fix it?

Could it be the settings of the sound driver which fixed it?
