Meier's fix works for me like a charm, EAX also re-activated in the game. Thx a lots guylovingbenji said:I have the exact same problem under WinXp SP3 and an Audigy 2ZS soundcard with the latest drivers installed.The workaround (by lowering the hardware acceleration in the windows conf panel) works, however, since, the game starts but I don't have anymore the EAX option, (in any game in fact, not just witcher !!).Any chance to have a patch/fix for this ?
Woops I thought i was in the other EAX thread. That fix for replacing 2 system files and the Miles folder was here:http://www.thewitcher.com/forum/index.php?topic=16688.msg390420#msg390420Sorry I dunno how to do links.And thanks for the quick response, I'll assume 1.4 is working then. Thank you!LicaonKter said:>The fix posted here works.which one?>But now the update line is flashing in the launcher, when I click it it says i have version 1.3. It did show 1.4. Now what?if you launch the game and it works ok, just ignore that
*bow* This got it working for me. I'm useing a Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeGamer Fatal1ty Pro on WindowsXP 32 SP2. However once I turned on eax everything did not sound right with my 5.1 setup. I like it better without eax. Nonetheless thanks for the fix Weier *bow*Weier said:So i try a little bit and made you a patch for the eax-bug.You can use full hardware acceleration.Simply copy the files in the archieve but make a backup of the originals first!!!!http://uploadfile.org/download.php?id=FBphKrj6VAnixPV6mqYvI take the files from COD4, it is a problem with the miles sound system and binkvideo....I use winxp x86 sp3 btwPlease post if it works for you.
Um...My FX and Sound folders are also completely empty and I get sound just fine so I dont think this is your proublem.Tremerian said:yes everything looks in order I get my sound card works fine everywhere else my headset is plugged in my dxdiag comes up clean.when I run the intro outside of the game it has sound just not in the game itself, even the atari movie has no sound.also the FX folder is compleetly empty.I understand the problem now, I have no sound because the sound files are all missing........
