    every game i have tried to play that has EAX support ( bioshock, halo, battlefield 2) has MAJOR distortion and static whenever i run the game with alchemy, cmss 3d, and in game mode (which im pretty sure is the preferred configuration for eax games). i made sure that i am using the right settings in alchemy for all of the games and there is still a huge amount of distortion. i use the latest PAX drivers and have a titanium fata1ty champion. can anyone help?

    I think Bioshock2 doesnt need Alchemy


    And you can try Daniel_ K suite WDM 1.8, maybe its PAX conflict.. but you must uninstall everything, delete all creative folders (app. data - local, roaming; program data, program files, common files) and run a registry cleaner + driver sweeper for that extra touch; reboot and try DK WDM1.8 :nerd:



    Also you can check this list for Alchemy compatibility info

    just tried that driver too, still getting the same problem. this still only happens in game mode.

    Isnt cmss 3d for upmixing music into a surround sound setting? I always used to disable that when gaming back in the day.

    it seems it was just alchemy causing the problem, i installed an older version from creative's site and it works fine now
