I'm wondering why the 48000hz sound option was removed from the game in the 1.1 patch and later?
I have been experiencing stutter ever since those patches, due to the fact that the audigy is 48000hz only.

As we are only able to choose 44100hz in the setup menu, the audigy has to resample the sound to 48000hz in order to play it, eating cpu cykles. Wouldn't it be better to patch the sound engine itself instead of removing features??

It was in one of the patch readme files that the 48000hz was removed.

Of course it is, but not the reason

Besides, where does it say the Audigy only 48000hz sound?

I got an Audigy2 and before that an Audigy and never had any stutter.

go to Kx-project (http://kxproject.lugosoft.com/) and read the documents there, I never said the Audigy was 48000hz only, I said it would have to resample the sounds if they are 44100hz...

(messed up the adress, ok now)
