I'm having some problems with my audio in Litestep.
Sound card is a Hoontech DSP24 Value as well as on board AC97. Both have the same problem.
If I play a song in Winamp while browsing my HDD. If I move through folders to quickly or right click on a file the audio will start dropping out or just stop completely and won't resume normal play until I'm done.
It gets worse when playing games as sound becomes dirty and jumpy.
I had the exact same problems when trying Aston but never had them in explorer.
I have tried fresh installs of drivers as well as Winamp but it doesn't seem to help. Has anyone else encountered this problem or have any advice on how to fix it?
If it helps the rest of the system specs are as follows,
512mb DDR 266
Intel D845EBG2 MB
FlyTV video capture card
80gig 7200 RPM Maxtor HDD
80gig 7200 RPM Seagate HDD
if its a litestep problem then use !HideModules before u run your game... if then there is no problem then its probably one of ur modules causing teh problem...
u can then comment out all modules and load them one by one till u find the culprit...
something tells me ur CPU usage jumps to 100% and causes the song to stop playing... i dont remember but what OS are u on? XP? disable transparent selection rectangle and fade effect.... i donno but i think there was a fix....
I turned off Fade effect and have no problems with winamp anymore.
UT2004 seemed to be the only game giving me audio problems. I defaulted UT's audio options and used !HideModules before loading it and the sound problems are very minimal now(a crackle here and there, only really when I destroy a powercore).
Thanks for you help it is much appreciated.
The only option (that I can see) besides !HideModules is to comment out all modules (ie. their *NetLoadModule lines) and add them back in one by one, until you figure out which one is responsible for your problems. You can then post back here and/or contact the module developer so it gets fixed.
Hey chujo I had the same prob don't know about games but its pretty simple if your explorer.exe is set to high priority then yougot the same prob as I did I used an app ( using it right now) processswitch free the strats up and sets explorer to normal priority so when exploring files or dragging explorer windows, audio does not delay.
This problem has nothing to do with hardware or drivers I got an audigy2, its just the even setting certain processes to high priority makes your os no do anything else funny thing is that..........aghh take to long to retype just read my recent posts ok.
Hey one last thing is your maxtor seagate quiter? and do youhave the diamondmax plus 9, I just wanna get the quitest 80 gig drive.
