Just installed a fresh copy of Win7x64 on my PC, and getting things all setup.
C2 installed. Plays good.. still need to tweak my delay and repeat.. but close. The odd thing now? It sounds like I am playing in a tunnel! music sounds right, but the game sounds do not. And yes, I have adjusted the sliders to lower music and raise game sound.
Soundcard is a Asus Xonar DX. I won't rule out audio driver problem.. but that would be an easy scapegoat. Anybody else experience similar?
Hmm... Weird problem. Perhaps the card/its drivers try to apply some 3D effect to the sound effects? Did you disable all "enhancements" and similar things?
(and I meant to post this in the C2 section...)
Turns out the Asus drivers for the Xonar DX are crap, as I was getting this reverb effect with a few other apps, but not all. Ended up installing a third party driver called the UNi Xonar driver. All better!
