Windows 7: Crysis audio crackle/reverb issue

It seems it's a issue I can't avoid without changing hardware.
The option remains to replay it on my alt box (fx60-8800gtx-4gb ddr) it's plugged into a 42inch tv and was really only meant to playback video though. I suppose if I decide I just have to play it, I'll give it a go on that rig, it has a completely different hardware profile than this one.

Man I'm sorry you're having such issues with the game. I'm currenlty messing around with it on my rig and have no issues. The reason I'm playing it now is because I want to see how the new video card handles it.

Anyways I do hope you find a solution.

Edit - have you tried uninstalling then reinstalling the game?

lol yeah I got this video card since the last time I played it, and it looks great, especially considering how old it is now. The sound is just a real mood killer.

Anyhow once again I appreciate the help

Sorry, brain fart... I saw Striker Extreme, somehow confused it with X-FI Extreme and yeah... it all went down hill from there!

What freaks me out is that my friend/neighboor has the same issue with a totally different system and using win XP and I was not able to fix it either.

I totally gave up on it and I never walk away from a challenge... perhaps this post is a new wake up call

As I noted earlier the sound issues has been there since the game was released. I would have thought the issue fixed by a patch(es) - guess not

Well I was able to get it to run on my media system in the main room, but the frame rate isn't stable unless I crank everything down below a point I'm willing to tolerate. the 8800gtx wasn't really meant for 1080p resolutions. Even though it was the big dog at the time I got it, by current standards it's a lower-mid range affair at best. It just doesn't have the streams...

My friend with the crackling issue that I spoke about on my previous posts just got a new Logitech 5.1 speaker system as well as a new sound card... went to his house last night to help set it up. After we were done we tried the game again and the crackling sound issue has totally disappear.

What am I trying to say to say or where I am going with this? Well, perhaps the old card had the issues, perhaps the old 5.1 speaker system was the culprit? IDK, all I am saying is perhaps you want to try playing the game with no speaker system plugged in but only a headset? yet another test you can do?

After reading this, I had a strange thought, reverted to vista drivers for my audio.
It worked...
Only problem is now it's glitchy with other games I will play through and put the 7 drivers back I guess.

Strange problem...

Anyhow, I would have reped you for the inspiration but apparently I can't again just yet...

Not here for the Reps buddy, I ask plenty for help so I try to give back when I can... even if there are no answers from my help!

Strange how Vista drivers can work and Win 7 won't... I am sure that you have done this already but, you may want to try uninstalling the vista drivers and install a fresh set of win 7 drivers again, you may get lucky

Hmm, just a thought but- what about in game eax settings. All I have ever read it is probs in games and even if your sound card supports it- folks have less probs if they turn it off in game.

Sometimes the mini connector to the sound card is more lose a fit than on other cards- maybe try and remove the connections to the sound card from the speakers and plug it back in- maybe try and wiggle it a lil while music etc is playing- see if that takes away the crackles etc.
