View Full Version : Horrible noise in TDS!!!

Hi. I'm having a very annoying problem with Theif III - namely, that certain kinds of sounds (often when an enemy says something, but other stuff too) cause my soundcard to make a constant noise, consisting of the rapid repetition of an element of the sound originally made; so it ends up sounding like a pneumatic drill!!!! (DRRRRRR-DGDGDGD-DRRRRRRR....) :mad: :confused: I've got a Creative SB Audigy 2 ZS, which I think should easily do the job. I've updated the card's drivers, and I've patched the game - but still no joy.

Part of the game's charm is in sneaking around and keeping quiet, so this abominable din ruins the whole thing!!! Can anyone heeeeeelp... ?

Start>Run>DXDIAG> check the sound settings. Run all the tests.

Double check that the MOBO sound card is disabled if you have one onboard.
