Hi all, I find that the sound in the game is not very accurate. The quality is good but the imaging is not very accurate and I can hear people from a few rooms over pick up iteams, reload, ect. I find this very distracting as I keep turning to look when no one is there. Is this just the way the game is or is it because I have the old origonal Sound Blaster Live, other games such as UT, UT 2003, BF.1942 work just fine. Thank You. P.W.M.

its probly ur sound card. but u can still hear to ppl running even if a wall is behind u, but not as extreme as u make it where u hear there rooms away... u can listen to them if theres only a wall in between u... also make sure ur sound volume isnt at max lol... besides... sound is important to sof2. if u listen to them... u kill em 1st.
Thanks Force I kind of figured it was just my machine. You are definately right about using sound to determin where people are, had me screwed right up until I got used to it. P.W.M
If you have the music volume turned right down and the fx turned up full you will hear players movements from some way off, you need to stike a balance, however like said above no music and fx turned up full you will hear your enemy running to their death from a distance away, the art of combat then is to figure out if they are in front of you or behind, above or below..
