Post 10 of All CMSS does is had so much junk reverb and brightness so that I can hardly hear what’s going on around me. It has long been obvious that the protocol A3D died with Aureal firm forever, but there are still games that support it, and some people maybe? Post 2 of The product is only one executable file A3D-Live. The new audio system is mandatory for recent DirectSound support which is more important than any EAX stuff.

Aureal A3D

You can forget about it on Vista onward. Dec 27, at 5: The product is only one executable file A3D-Live. In the mid 90s I worked on a 3D sound technology called A3D. So, is there any way to provide the older audio support for the apps to need it once we switch to a Vista or higher target?

But where I have a problem with the audio handling w3d that is makes things more complicated. The only issue is with old games that were made before Vista and were made with hardware acceleration in mind – not software audio solutions which WIndows intercepts and attempts to supplement.

Your old PC games might sound the same again; there’s an A3D (Aureal) wrapper.

However, the cost of the legal battle caused Aureal’s investors to cease funding operations, forcing Aureal into bankruptcy. If you want a true restoration you should check this.

I’m not sure if it was completely or not though. Only flaw is that you cannot use propietary extensions like all that Creative made EAX crap anymore at all. All CMSS does is had so much junk reverb and brightness so that I can hardly hear what’s going on around me. I never had any fancy stuff like this back then, but I’ve been amazed by what I’ve heard in videos since. I might check it out when replaying Thief or Deus Ex next time.

Too bad no one does anything like this anymore. Xander51 Member Aug 24, Post 7 of Those cards were some serious gear to have back in the day, and I can’t believe that over a decade later, nothing comes close to it.
