Damn you HL2!!!!!!

Given our kin-ship with HalfLife 2, here is a separate forum to discuss anything related to HalfLife 2 and the various Mods out there (eg, Gary Mod, Zombie mod etc)

Damn you HL2!!!!!!

Stupid game killed my speakers!!!!!!!

I was nearly in tears as I have some beautiful Altec Lansing THX 5.1 babies!

So I install HL2 after waiting ages for it to install I go to play Source, another 30 minute wait to update. Get to Source all excited, no sound :shock: .

Exit out of Source, back to windows, no sound WTF :evil:

Now I'm getting worried :( . Change the Subwoofer fuse, no dice. Re-seat the Audigy 2, no cheese.

Now my eyes are welling up (well...almost) :cry:

A bit more messing around, Creative diagnostics says all ok....how the fuck does it think no sound is ok...POS software! So then I decide to try to re-install the driver and get 'WARNING - the driver you are about to install is older than the one you currently use' erm...no it isn't, or at least it shouldn't be :?

So then it dawns that HL2 must have updated the Creative driver (with a fucking awseome update I must say). Install original and I'm back in business :D

Now I'm expecting HL2 to waste a god few hours but not like this.....total utter bastard!!! :evil:

I got it sorted, just installed the original Creative driver so it removed whatever update HL2 applied :D

Death when your sound goes off try going into Options, Audio and try changing the Speaker Config to something else then back again.
I had to do that when i was playing CS:S beta to get my sound back on track.
