I’m having trouble with 3d sounds playing back on a RealTek sound card. 2D sounds play fine, the trouble is only with 3D sounds.
In our game build, and on my machine only, sounds cut out early or start midway or don’t play at all. It sounds like only one sound plays at a time. The FMOD Player opens and plays the .FEV files with no issues.
I figured there was a hardware conflict or something with my E-mu 1820m and the RealTek sound card. After trying all sorts of things to "fix the machine" I had IT give me a different machine. With no audio software or hardware installed I encountered the same issue with 3D sounds. The only thing the same on the two machines was the brand of sound card…RealTek.
Two other sound designers and the audio programmer are not having this trouble with there Dell machines which have a different sound card.
I’ll be getting a Dell machine ASAP, but I wanted to pass this info along incase there is an easy fix or a desire to support the Realtek cards.
