Older game (Soldier Of Fortune Platinum) EAX issue

Hi all,Just installed Windows 7 7600 build v. and installed a 9 years old game (Soldier of fortune) wich support EAX.Under vista was working perfectly with eax enabled within game,and sound drivers SBX-FI Series Support Pack 2.0,and latest Alchemmy version.Now when i choose to enable EAX within game,i get default sound which is terrible.Any one knows how to get it work?Has any1 tried this game under Win7?
I even tried to install several creatrive drivers,and even other Alchemy veersions, still the same problem ingame.No EAX
I would appreciate any help.
Thx

P.S. My soundcard is XFI Fatality

At least you were able to get SOF to run. I've been trying to get Soldier of Fortune Gold to run on the release version Win7 64-bit, and so far I've failed. The install seemed to go OK but when I try to run the game, a Windows dialog box immediately pops up and says "SoF has stopped working" with no more details. I've tried changing the compatibility modes, but nothing I've tried will let me run it. Any ideas?

I have SOF Platinum running on my Win 7 64 bit installation. Its working in the native Win 7 mode. If it won't run in native Win 7 mode, try Vista or even XP compatibility modes.

I have a new (just installed last week) SB Xfi Titanium Fatality sound card and in the EAX is available in the "Entertainment Mode", although I'm not using that as I have mine set for Audio Creation mode.

Update - I set my SB for the "Entertainment Mode", then enabled EAX and set it to Jazz hall. I then started SOF and tried to change to EAX but it will only accept "default". Looks like it may be a SOF issue rather than EAX, at least in my case.

If sof works with eax enable under win7 then it will work having the "Game mode" ONLY.
But it seems that creative Alchemy doesnt work on older games that support eax under win7.Not as yet,hope they will release a new Alchemmy version for win7 soon.
