Far Cry Feedback

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by Christian Hougardy \(MS MVP XP\), May 14, 2005.

  1. Hi guys,

    Far Cry x64 doesn't like Tiny Firewall.... Once TF removed, install of FC
    went smooth.
    Have a problem with my sound card now (SB Live!): noisy as impossible...
    Anyway, I'll succeed :)

  2. The SBLive? There have been 3 new models come out since the SBLive. Isn't
    it time to upgrade to the Audigy 2 ZS ? :)

  3. Yes, it is.... only small problem: my wife thinks it's not :)

  4. Why? If the sound quality is sufficient and one doesn't hear a difference
    anyways, I don't see ANY reason to upgrade.

    It's the same with graphic cards - if you don't need the extra power, why
    buy a Gefore6 if you are happy with your Geforce256 (1).

  5. No real need to upgrade it. However I too have this problem, and I have a
    feeling that it only happened after updating to the latest sblive drivers.
    Still, at least I was right with the Tiny firewall thing.

  6. Time to buy her some roses? LOL

  7. Why did you upgrade to a 64bit system when your 32bit one worked fine? :)

  8. And you wonder why? I don't have this problem and I have an Audigy 2 ZS.

  9. Because he might be an early adopter, likes being on the cutting edge.

  10. Think about what I asked him based on the entire thread, then you will see
    the point to my question. If not, ask someone to explain it to you. :)

  11. Yes Billie, you were right, thanks for that :)

    As a musician, sound problems are a very big problem problem for me
    I have been using the audigy2 platium and have been very satisfied.

    HOWEVER, i am very aware of the fact the most people can not tell
    the subtlities in their music or other sound sources.
    that being the case, and money always a concern, i advise that If they
    happy with it, keep it.

  13. All I can say is, as an amateur musician myself, I have been more than happy
    with the results I can get through the SBLive 5.1 and the Livedrive. If I'm
    not I throw everything through Garageband on a Mac. I have very fine
    hearing. I'm one of the people who can instantly tell the difference between
    the range on vinyl and CD, or a 128k mp3 from a 160, or a 160 from a 192 and
    so on. But I know that I'm unlikely to hear a stunning or worthwhile
    difference that is worth shelling out £100 or so for when I already have
    digital in/out, SPDIF in/out and a good set of speakers.
    The other point of course being that after installing the new drivers the
    problem seems to have appeared. A distinct mouse lag/pause seems to have
    crept in around the same time as well that causes the framerate to suffer in
    FC64 so I'm going to have some fun diagnosing it.
