This is big for me as I just got my X-Fi gamer and upgraded to Vista 64bit... You'd think it would have been harder to do back in the days of windows 95 than it is today... I mean there are 0 solutions that I have seen... What's up with that!
Incorrect. It just doesn't work in old
DirectSound3D games. Only a small number of old
games use this. Although, i think Source based games do. But, others like BF2, GRID and anything else with EAX work fine.
You can't support every legacy product. They obviously saw that the benefit of changing the way drivers work to reduce crashes outweighed the negative of some games not working.
We can't go forward if people are still holding onto old technology. Sure, it might not be perfect, but there is a very simple
workaround called Alchemy. It doesn't require a PHD to work out, so give it a go. You might surprise yourself
