Hi! I am trying to figure out through this forum, if by enabling EAX in games, you do get any benefits using the KX driver. I read that the EAX support is like a ghost thing calculating stuff but no enviroments or effects etc. So... on or off, doesn't matter right... or wrong ? Another issue is, to activate the 3D audio, do I need a surround setup of speakers or I can benefit with two speakers too (as is my current setup). To enable it, I should go to AC97 tab and select it (3DSE) ? Are there any programs to test the 3D mode of KX drivers if it is working properly ? Thanks in advance for any help Peace Sotiris. PS: What is the KXctrl -shw18 command, what does it do ?
