Hey everyone! Wanted to post this in a forum I love, love and hopefully it spreads!
What I was receiving:
Would crash to desktop after the video in 11 mode.
No sound in any mode.
Updated dx with the update on ms.
Tried all possible fixes online, sound quality issues and all.
What I did, and it fixed every issue!:
I am running 10.3 with a 5850 windows 7 x64.
1. Update the ati hdmi drivers
2. INstall the hotfix from ms for the display of the correct ddi in dxdiag. (using phone.to post, dont have the kb at hand)
3. Install update 1, 2, and 3 from skidrow.
- I still had the sound issues and bad fps.
4. GO into your install folder;redist;directx, and install the dxsetup. THis fixed everything!! It must be newer than what's on the ms website.
Played it for hours and not even a hickup!
