    Is it possible to have both the creative and the kx drivers installed, and swap them as needed? I just LOVE the sound of kx over stock drivers, but there are some games that just sound so much worse without eax (thief series most notably). I can't make up my mind... can't I have both? :D

    I know this has been said over and over, but eax/a3d are great enhancements to already existing games (and most of those games can only use either one)... it'd be GREAT to have that integrated into those drivers (knowing the quality of the driver, it'd be a great implementation too, for sure). At least for me, it seems to be a hugely important feature set in the drivers - you shouldn't just let it slide like that :) I can BET this driver would gain a LOT of popularity if it integrated this....

    Of course You`re right, but it was discused many times on this boards.

    As I can remember, EAX is going to be implemented into drivers, but first, team has more important things to do. We don`t want the driver quality to went down, don`t we?

    And I think there could be problems on with EAX, You know, it`s Creative patent and I really don`t know is it fully legal to implement Creative`s technology into kX. From other side, kX isn`t commercial, so that would be strange if Creative want to collect cash from kX authors. Anyway, we must wait...

    Patience is the key my friend ;)
