I am running v.1.1 and I can't get any sound from my rear speakers in game. My 5.1 sound works for everything else, and even works for the intro. screen of Far Cry, but that's where the fun ends. I get nothing out of my rear speakers in-game. I have tried setting the sound options both in-game and using the configuration tool, and have tried all different settings, but nothing has produced any results. I'm running an AMD Athlon XP 2600+, a Gig of Ram, an ATI Radeon 9500Pro, and I'm using the onboard sound with the Soyo Dragon Ultra KT333 mobo. The chipset is C-Media and, as I've said, it works great with everything else. So, why wouldn't it work with this? If anyone knows of a common solution to this problem, or needs more of my system specs, let me know. Thanks, Lane

I have the exact same problem - I got even in touch with Ubi who claimed it was my hardware to blame. I used creative at the time, so I tried their latest patches and even their helpline but to no avail -

since Ubi is not interested in fixing or even admitting to the problem and we are not the only ones that reported this problem the solution is real simple - don't buy their products anymore and spread the word... ;)
