Windows 7: sound crysis

14 May 2009   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x32
sound crysis

i reinstalled Win7 earlier yesterday (i made a boo-boo) and do what i usually do and install all my drivers and apps. then move on to whatever games i feel like playing. so installed a few, Crysis being one of them.

I get a pretty decent frame rate considering i don't meet a few of the system requirements (as far as ram, and gfx card) but the last thing i expect is for the sound not to work. I'm using the latest video/mo-bo/sound drivers around. so i dont get it. the starting vids play a little choppy, and the menu stutters somewhat, but the audio works. it craps out as i get to the loading screen. that and i noticed that some of the scripting fails as well, e/g theres a guy that follows you in the begining of the game after you crash land. he just stands there with his thumb in his arse. a couple other little things like that.

i have the game updated to the latest version (1.2.1),
anyone know a fix, or can give me some pointers here?

thanks in advance

Try changing the sample rate in sounds. Right click sound icon then choose play back devices, under the properties of the sound you have set as default go to advanced where you will be able to change the bit rate. I had similar problems with COD 5 and managed to get it to work properly by trying different values.

Good luck.

By the way just in case your wondering if crysis works or not then yes it does, both crysis and crysis warhead work without problems.:)

NO S%#T! where do you think i got it

haha, that was pretty random.
anyway, i was able to get sound for a little while, by disabling my other audio devices. crapped out after a while.
i read that integrated devices can mess w/ sound cards. so shutting it off in the bios may help too. thanks for the help rst101, i'll be back with some results.

OK, so the game is out already and I am patiently waiting for those who pre-order or got it today and will fire up the Campaign... Give us your thoughts on: Storyline Gameplay Graphics Game smoothness... walking, running, jumping, etc.
Crysis 2 Directional Sound Issue
If I aim at something, the sound is extremely low or silent. For example, I aim directly at an enemy shooting at me and I don't hear his gunfire, but I hear the gunfire coming from the enemies to the left and right. It's like there's no center channel and it really ruins the atmosphere of the game...
Crysis W7 64 Bit
Hi guys, sorry if someone posted this question already. I'm on the last level of the game, but the game crashes to the bsod. A memory dump i think. Is there any way of fixing it? I have the latest drivers for my gpu. Tried putting grafix in the game down a lil bit. Still the bsod. Also i have...
I've had crysis for awhile, since before windows 7. Today I decided I wanted to play it so I installed it and updated it to 1.2.1. Every so often while I play the game just crashes, also crashes when I try to change graphical settings. In the event viewer it says Faulting application name:...
