    Uhm I wouldn't really call those drivers "hacked". You gain nothing from installing them on an Audigy2. They're the same 383 drivers as are avalible on Creative's website. You can find an updated 383 set (one file is 384) on my website (torturecity.cjb.net).

    As for the 2 hardware profiles... what's exactly wrong? I'll try to setup a similar configuration on my PC.

    I would be really happy (not only me but 100 other users from KX forum) as we all wished to have a kind of 2 profile under xp but we could not achive this!

    Xp would boot only with the original drivers even with the second profile (kx) drivers :(

    So please if you have a little time try and see if you can do it and post the result.

    Thanx in advance :)


    Edit: Btw it would be nice if you could advise me on how to get best out of Audigy2!
    people use Audigy2 drivers for Sb_live.... But can I use drivers for card better then audigy2 to get better performance?

    What do you think is best: Using KX for music/ original for games?
    Or is there any other trick that I don't know?

    I don't know if this is "old news", but I got a Audigy ZS CD with drivers v402 (07/10/2003). DirectX 9 compatible (and required, i think....).

    I installed @ Audigy 1 and works great!!


    I'm sharing @ eMule:
    Code:

    Best Regards,

    BTW: this drivers are WHQL Certified.

    newbie question

    hi i am new at this stuff with the sound drivers. i was reading the page with the faq and i had a question.
    when i extract that ctcomp prog, it says extract to SB_INSTAL/yada yada

    now the standard drivers don't install there. should i make a C:/SB_INSTALL folder? i am assuming that its a good thing that this cracked driver doesnt install in the same place as the rgular ones.

    thanks
    and excuse my ignorance about this stuff.

    You should extract it to folder where you extracted the entire driver package. Did you got the entire package or?

    Hmm... thanks for pointing out, I really notice that I wasn't clear enough on that part of the guide :(

    Anyway, you need http://www.fileconnect.net/download.php?filepath=Drivers/Creative/sb_install_eng.zip&language=en file. Once you have it, you should extract ctcomp.exe to SB_INSTALL\Audio\Setup.

    I will fix the guide right now :)

    EDIT: Updated.

    ok i installed the big huge audigy 2 pack with my sb live value, making sure not to select speaker calibration and the eax thingy. :D

    now i guess i have .283 driver like uwrote in the faq. now before i install those other application updates, where do i get the .381 driver (AUD2DRVLB030425.exe -step 3 in faq)?

    thanks

    The links in the FAQ should work (you should notice that filenames are actually links). If any of them don't work, please tell me.

    Did you make sure to completely uninstall your old audigy drivers first?
