I´ll be right back after restart! Win made me pissed off again! Gave me a BSOD! But I got it going again.
So here is what I did: installed folder 1, zipped 2 into a separate folder, zipped the 2 files in 3 into the same folder, clicked install (which to my surprise told me I already had alchemy installed! after I have made shure I had removed every sign of the program in both programs and programs(x86)!?). Then I copied the two files 3 to the Creative/Alchemy folder. This time it worked!
Now I dunno why it didn´t work the other times when I only followed your instructions but beeing stubborn payed off this time.
A big HTX to you Storebror for chasing me to rethink!

Okay let's try to get this right...

You wrote:
I think its working but my 'sounds' file (readme says log.lst??) in my main IL2 folder has this in it

Code: [Select]

That's funny.
Well, the fact that you don't find the "log.lst" is because you decided to name your logfile different:
Heres my conf.ini Mike;
Code: [Select]
[Console]
LOG=1
LOGFILE=ERROR_LOG.txt
LOGKEEP=1
LOGTIME=0
HISTORY=1024
HISTORYCMD=1024
LOAD=console.cmd
SAVE=console.cmd
FOVlog=1
Per default, the logife would be configured as "LOGFILE=log.lst", that would get you the log.lst like anyone else has.
Furthermore it's not recommended to use "LOGKEEP=1" since that'd mean that your logfile will be ever growing.
You might want to check the size of the current "ERROR_LOG.txt", it's likely huge.
Better use "LOGKEEP=0" to get a logfile containing only events from the last time you ran the game.

Furthermore it's absolutely impossible to explain why your "sounds" file (which in fact is named "sounds.log") contains parts of what is supposed to be in the game's logfile "log.lst".
This is what belongs to "sound.log":
Code: [Select]
-- new session --
num channels 0
Cannot open audio file samples/infinite 1
Speaker config restored.
Audio finished.

Cannot set EAX occlusion properties !
Cannot set EAX occlusion properties !
Speaker config restored.
Audio finished.
And this in fact belongs to "log.lst":
Code: [Select]
Initializing DirectSound playback device...
Primary buffer created.
Playback format is set : sampling rate = 44100, num channels = 2.
Buffer caps : Transfer rate = 0, CPU overhead = 0.
Default speaker config is : 6.
Direct sound audio device initialized successfully :
DX Version : 7
Hardware    - enabled [buffers : 129]
Extensions  - enabled :
  EAX ver. 1 [X]  - enabled
  EAX ver. 2 [X]  - enabled
  EAX ver. 3 [X]  - enabled
  I3D ver. 2 [ ]  - disabled
  ZoomFX     [ ]  - disabled
  MacroFX    [ ]  - disabled
SIMD render [X]
num channels 0
Maybe the mess of log content is caused by "LOGKEEP=1", maybe your logfile already grew beyond all imagination and the OS or game messed up with it.

I have an ASUS Rock H97 with onboard Realtek HD Audio
Perfectly fine for this EAX mod.
This part tells that it's working:
Code: [Select]
  EAX ver. 1 [X]  - enabled
  EAX ver. 2 [X]  - enabled
  EAX ver. 3 [X]  - enabled

I do wonder if this should =1? SoundFlags.forceEAX1=0
It's right that it's set to "0".
If you enforce EAX ver. 1 only by setting "SoundFlags.forceEAX1=1" you will get no engine sounds in cockpit.
Leave it at "SoundFlags.forceEAX1=0" to enable all EAX versions 1, 2 and 3.

Best regards - Mike

I had been using "Tiger_33 UV3 for EXPERT mode" on my HSFX 7.03 install and although a great sound pack it lacked external environment sounds when in cockpit so i installed Victors sound mod which i tested and it sounded great then installed EAX,  WOW great improvement that takes the sound to another level.
 
Thank you very much for sharing your knowledge Mike.



Edit, thought i should add that editing the "dsound.ini"  as suggested in Reply #8  of this thread made a big difference for me, Windows 7, no Soundblaster Card, USB headphones.

So would you suggest adding EAX to BAT?

EAX works best with Soundblaster Sound Cards. Other cards might or might not work, YMMV.
It tends to drop sounds completely, which gets more likely the more sound emitting objects are around.
This seems to happen more often when playing online. Again, YMMV with all of this.
In the end I have dropped EAX and all investigations completely as I couldn't manage to get it working reasonably stable, even though I do have a Soundblaster Card with official EAX support.
The utmost I could reach online was some 10 minutes "good" gameplay, then sounds started dropping out.

Cheers!
Mike

As long as it works for you, EAX is great, no doubt about it.
If you still have XP, it will work anyways.
As I said: YMMV. Or even more, YMWV :D

Cheers!
