Managed to acquire avp but having trouble with sound. The game has been patched but during gameplay I am unable to hear the sound of weapons when playing the marine, yet all other sounds etc are fine !

Its got me stumped:mad:

Hiya

Try this. Control Panel | Multimedia | Audio | Playback/Advanced Properties | Performance.
Slide the bar down one notch to the left. You want to be going away from full hardware acceleration.

What is your OS?

Cheers Eddie ! Will give that a go.

Current operating system is:

AMD K6-2 366 MHz 3D NOW with 196 Mb Ram
ATI Rage Pro Turbo AGP x2
Voodoo 2 (16 Mb)
Soundblaster 64v PCI
Windows 98se

A bit long in the tooth but surely enough to run AvP ?!

A bit bizarre but the game now runs fine in Direct X 7 - as opposed to direct X 8.1 which i have had installed !

or was it the reformat ?!!

cheers

Hiya

Am I right in thinking that you just did a format to get the game working? Did the hardware acceleration not work?

The re-format was done as a cure to a multitude of problems ! not specifically AvP, but 'Everquest' was crashing also and i had a thrashing HD, despite all the mem.

Tried your fix but it crashed before I got the damn thing running ! so I couldn't even say if it worked. Everquest requires Direct X 8.1 so if things go belly up when I reinstall then I know what the problem is;)

cheers!
