Daniel_K X-Fi Support Pack 3.0a (08/11/2014)
@ Pill Monster, thanks for posting this, and special thanks to Daniel_K.
Great to see that he's still kickin' and rockin'.
Yeah I know what u mean... after my trusty Audigy 2 died yesterday I saw an XFI Fatality going for $50, I didn't want to deal with Creative crapola drivers but grabbed it anyway.
Was very happy to see DK had just released a new software pack....
Thanks for the heads up Pill Monster! Been a while since I've seen any DK drivers, will give them a go! :thumbup:
Nice thanks, good to see he updated XFI HD with custom driver, will install later :nerd:
W00t, a Daniel_K driver with Titanium HD Support!?
Late to the party, but, I'm all in to try it.
Thanks Pill and Daniel_K!
To bad my old X-Fi sleeps in a the celar next to some other hardware junk.
Maybe I get it back into my computer one time to testout the new SP 3.0a
Never got the SP 3.0 to work with my SB460 Chio ;/
64bit part of openAL confirmed and working via ALCapsViewer64 :thumbup:
these drivers are ok for x-fi extreme music under Windows 8.1, correct?
I have Xfi Titanium Fatal1ty champion and I instaled the driver 3.2. But my front painel don't work. This drive is correct for my board?
XFTI_PCDRV_L11_2_40_0008, released 7th March 2014.
...or the latest PAX driver, post#1065 on last page.
Uninstall all Creative software and OpenAL from Add/Remove Programs (don't reboot) then go to device manager, find Soundcard, right-click, uninstall device (check the box) reboot into safe mode, use DriverSweeper to clean out Creative specific leftovers, then Ccleaner.
Here are the files that get left behind after uninstalling Creative Drivers then running Driversweeper in Safe Mode.
CCleaner gets rid of most registry entries, these alone remain.
Seems the front panel problem is common with this card with no clear fix.I opted to not install it with my last system upgrade.
I had working front panel Headhpones auto switch (HD audio on pc case), but then I decided to run win8manager repair system components and it stopped working..
Guess I'll have to do a tough uninstalling too, yesterday I just uninstalled whole DK pack and reinstalled but it still remembered my config files.
Usually it was enough just to uninstall driver in devicemaneger (F5) and let it reinstall again reboot and done.. meh :infinity:
Lol! Remember this is Creative we're talking about.Clean drivers were never their strong point and a huge "DON'T BUY" for a lot of people after Vista came out.But I must commend them on their last three driver releases (as spaced out as they were) they were really good.The last one being the best imo.
Edit: Another good practice is to uninstall Creative Auto Update Software after installer has finished, before you restart.That gets installed by default unfortunately.
I feel stupid, you know what was the problem for front panel automatically enabled headphones detection/changing, CTXFI helper.exe @ windows startup.
Once I re-enabled & started it again it works np, I remember disabling this right before it stopped responding in win8manager but never thought its that and yep..
I said to my self need to remember its for HP, but totally forgot after few months
surprised no one mentioned these are now up to 3.3 and support win10.
+you can pick which parts to install.
Odd thing with my x-fi Extreme music, I have been using the older official drivers, and I have my sound card connection to a digital amp, and I use the flexi jack as the output. Everything works really well. I then decided to try the newer version of the drivers (the last official drivers on Creative's web site), and with the same settings, I no longer get any sound out of the flexi jack, going back to the older drivers and things work. Any ideas why this happens?
Using Windows 7 64bit. Creative support is not interested in my issues
Very cool, but 2014 is long time ago. I think youll have problems with Winblows 10 and what not.
