Stuttering and cracking sound

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi All, 

I'm experiencing stuttering and cracking sound in CM:SF. 
It starts right after the intro and gets really bad in-game.

I've uninstalled all mods (sound and otherwise), and the problem persists. 

None of my other CM games (CM:FI, CM:BN, CM:RT, CM:BS) have this problem.

Has anyone else experienced this problem?

UPDATE:

I seem to have fixed my problem myself. After much tinkering with audio settings, audio devices, audio drivers and even audio codecs without making any difference, I decided to change the CPU affinity settings for ShockForce.exe to run on CPU 3 and 4 rather than 1 and 2 as a last resort - and this seems to have fixed it!

Interesting - I have no idea why the affinity would make a difference unless the other cores are busy with OS duties and other tasks.

I seemed to have resolved it by renaming the 'intro.wmv' file to 'intro-off.wmv', which appears to have prevented it from loading/playing. The menu and in-game audio seemed fine after that.
