Hi i have a creative X-Fi Gamer edition card installed on my system and when i play DOW2 with the speakers set to default on the creative sound card the game stutters and freezes whilst playing. If i set default to the built in Realtek sound card the comp came with and plug the speakers in there instead the sound and game work fine. I therefore assume it must be a lack of ALchemy settings for the game and was wondering if anyone knew of the settings/solution to this problem. i have tried changing the setting the path location to "C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\common\dawn of war 2" which is where the game appears to be installed and using buffers of 4 number of voices as 128 (default for both) and duration of 10 - 30 in jumps of 5 each time and still find the game stuttering and freezing. I am running Vista 32bit and all the latest drivers etc. for the card including the latest alchemy.
Cheers for any help
