When you enable it, you'll get EAX on and whatever speaker mode you have the card in will give you some kind of surround (headphones are good for this). I personally dont use it though as with my KX Drivers i get lots of clicks when i turn turrets n stuff. You still get em with the current creative drivers, just not half as much.

Solo4114Ah, but textures plays into that as well. Visual awareness is important, and if your texture detail is low, then you can't really use tanks (since the tank reticle is actually a texture).

And that is why i can't use FH tanks :(

Gobo12Great thread I'm interested in this topic as I'm curious as to which options will help releive my Eastern Blitz stuttering woes, either a ram upgrade or a soundcard upgrade. System Athlon XP 2800+ @ 2223Mhz 1Gb pc3200 radeon 9800pro soundblaster live 5.1 value

A SB Live 5.1 "Value" is what i replaced. A piece of crap i got OEM from Dell. Ok for a moment but... If you go Audigy 2 you will not be disappointed. I like hearing the footsteps, satchels charges clinking and plane directions very well.

I enabled the HW accelearation just for testing and I lost like half of the sounds? It forced the soundcard to work with 31 channels instead of normal 64.

my soundblaster live 5.1 value allows me to hear footsteps and satchel charges and planes etc just fine so I'm not sure what you're talking about with that one.

it looks like that question wasnt to bad? no problem with the prior replies but it looks like this mod really creates some cpu usage. i also like the sound of the footsteps and other ordinance,

by the way, where do you find the sniper rifles?

Hmm funny i never checked the hardware accel box and ive been playing the game frequently for the past 2 years. I have an Audigy 2 ZS, and to those who have this card, does checking the hardware accel box and raising the number of channels increase the sound quality even further?

Checking the hardware accel box with a card like that should take the load off of your CPU, from what I understand. You should notice a significant increase in framerate.
