I have read through these fourms and I appologise if you have previously discussed this problem
with another individual.
I have OrbiterSound 2.5 installed and every time, no matter what sequence of installation I use, in
all the Orbiter situations I get horrible clicking, thudding, static distortion sounds and weather I am
inside or outside the cockpit makes no differance. I do notice that if I change my video to emulation
RGB is goes away, but playing at 1600x1200 I only get a slide show. I have uninstalled my video
and audio drivers several times and spanned several versions of each to try and isolate a codec
problem, thus far my efforts have proven useless. I read a thread posted some time ago regarding
the NASSP 4.0 apollo missions and I am having the identical problems, unfortunatly the fixes listed
under that thread do not work for me. Please help if you can. I am running an Intel PIII850Mhz
processor with an Nvidia GForce4 TI4200 64mb video card and Phillips Rythmic edge with 32mb
memory and 384mb of system memory. I use only the level 9 textures and experience flawless
video under direct3d HAL T&L @ 1600x1200 resolution 32 bit color. I also notice that when I render
the constialtions (press F9) the pops and click lessen considerably but do not go completely

Thank you in advance,
Aric Roy

It seem at first to me that your processor may be on knee
having pain to process the sound but it could be something else.
1600x1200 seem a bit high to me for a 850 (I'm running 1184 on a p4 1.7 ghz ti4200 128mo)
Orbiter seem to "eat" process time, it run well but doesn't let many place for other process.

please try those and feedback how it goes:
-try to lower the resolution and see if the click disappear or lessen
-try to reinstall directx
-try to lower the hardware acceleration of your sound card
-feedback how many FPS you have when the click occure.

I don't know the phillips card and how it handle directx
but I know I had big trouble with kxdriver "zero latency"
especially done for midi music (vst cubase) I had to deinstall
them so I cannot do music and programing orbiter in same time :sad:

So this could have something to do with the buffer size, latency etc etc
of your souncard. Do you have some setting that you can alter
as latency ?
