Do you have Windows Media Player 11? That installed a new set of codecs for the comp that messes with the sound of a few games (confirmed for X3). Just reinstall or roll back to WMP 10. 11 isn't all so superior and anywho. :p --- The School of the Undefeated of the East! The winds of the king! Zenshin! Keiretsu! Tenpakyouran!
