5.1 Audio problems - Watchout 5 - Windows XP

Recommended Posts

I recently updated my systems to watchout 5.1 and I am not able to play all 6 channels of audio.


Previous to updating to watchout 5.1, I used a test file from Showsage on my system with Watchout 3.4.2 and I was able to get all 6 channel to play from the onboard audio card.

I also tested the audio file with a an external USB sound card (Soundblaster X-FI) and that also worked with watchout 3.4.2.


I installed Watchout 5.1 and now I only get 2 channel stereo.


I did not change any hardware or drivers on the display systems.


Wondering what needs fixing.


Any suggestions?

You'll need a sound card with drivers that works with multi-channel, under Windows 7, with DirectX/Direct Sound.


There is a major difference between WindowsXP and Windows 7 in this respect, and manufacturers has not kept up.
