I do not know if this is caused by the Sound problem in the DarkEngine, but as another user also experienced, I'm having "positional" stereo problems, where the guards may sound very loud - IF I face the right direction, and when making a little spin on my feet, they suddenly sound very low. I can make a 360 degree spin at exactly same location with guard muttering volume going up and down.
Besides that, in the tutorial/training mission, there's a Keeper learning you how to be "ninja"^_^ He's very low too, and I can't make out what he's saying. Then when you've avoided the light in the first test, and come up to the instructor of the test, he says soemthing like "Good, I did not see you approach" - I hear that loud and clear - But I can't hear the Keeper guy so good - Only the instructors that there is at each test. I can hear jumps and footsteps etc. but when Garrett speaks it's really low.
I tried placing the A3D.dll file in the System32 folder & renaming the A3D.dll in dllcache to A3D.dll_ - I've tried to put the file into the game folder too. I've turned Hardware Acceleration and EAX on, but it doesn't work
Couldn't/can't find the EAX file on goggle -
Thx for taking time!
