Huge Sound Problem-Plz Help!!!
I've had FS2: Game of the Year edition for a while and it played fine under Win9x and Win2k.  I recently decided to take on this awesome game again running WinXp Pro.  Thing is, the game starts fine, runs fine, but whenever speech starts to happen, the sound gets all staticey and stays that way.  And when I exit out to the main screen, even the background music starts getting static.  I have an SB Live Plat 5.1 with the latest drivers and of course, Directx 8.   Please help?  I can't play this game with the sound going so bad.

I used to get that. I think it's when the processor is overworked the sound gets jolted.

Wasn't there something with the sound options? Using the wrong option caused sound problems. Try something else, DirectSound should work.

Yeah...deactivate EAX...it never worked good for me...(means I didn't get any 3D sound...only mono).

EAX works fine for me; 3D beam and flak sounds with headphones rule!

I did try disabling EAX and it didn't make any difference.  It's not a skipping of sound like with cpu max'ing, but rather a severe "static" whenever voices are played.

Is there a big difference between the Live and the Audigy? (enough to warrant an upgrade)

I can't really help much, but I keep having the same problem, and my PC shouldn't have it. All I do to fix it is change the Display from Direct3D to Glide. Works perfectly. See, having an outdated Voodoo card has its uses  

I can't help other than that, sorry. Try going to settings and asking it to detect the sound card again. Sometimes works, sometimes doesn't...

EDIT: I'm very particular about apostrophes...
