I selected EAX for fun, knowing it wasn't going to work - and it didn't. But I was surprised that it crashed the game. In any case, I believe The Witcher requires EAX 4.0. I don't know what your card provides, but that might be a clue for you. For the devs of the game, it might be a good thing to add code to prevent that unfriendly application crash if the installed system doesn't have EAX capable hardware.imp07 said:hey guys, finished downloading The Witcher EE this morning off of steam, went to options to max everything except when i try to turn on eax and click accept, the game shuts down and an error msg pops up saying the witcher experienced an unkown error. I am not the only one to experience this problem, and i assume it was something to do with creative sound cards. http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?p=8159330&posted=1#post8159330 Here is my computer setup:Intel C2D E6600EVGA 8800GTX2 Gigs of RamXi-fi Xtreme MusicLatest Direct X drivers (had to get the august update for Sup Com forged alliance). And for the record i have never had a problem like this with another game, in terms of audio problems or selecting eax or whatever.
