Hi Sylvester,
I'm not quite sure how to solve your sound card issue, but I'm fairly certain it isn't a DirectX issue. One thing I think you probably should have not of done is installed an older version of DirectX. That tends to cause more problems than it is worth so you will want to install an upgrade as soon as possible to insure you didn't break anything by downgrading like that. Anyway, if you want to know the current build of DirectX you are running you need to run the dxdiag program. Unfortunately, it isn't very specific in terms of weather you have say a March or Auggest release of DirectX, but you can get some info. Go to start, click on run, and type in dxdiag in the edit field, and click on ok. The dxdiag program will ask you if you want to check your drivers etc. Answer no, and a window will appear displaying various system info including your DirectX build number.

Greetings All! I am having a very annoying sound issue. I am running a system with X P with a sound blaster audigy sound card and the speakers are set to 5 point 1. Note I have tried to change the sound mode to stereo headphones with the same results. My problem is with Draconis Entertainments The Ultimate Soundoku. Note, I have all the other titles by them such as Monkey Business, Dyno Man Sarah Ten pin alley an Alien outback and do not have this problem. The problem is with panning, I run the check speakers option on all those titles, and every other game on my system and the only other games with panning issues is Grizzly Gulch, and Jim Kitchens Mach 1 game. What is strange is that the opening title sounds and the menu sounds are fine but when I start the game I am only getting the left channel. With Grizzly gulch I get stereo for every sound in the game except when trying to shoot the gun the clicking sound does not pan, and Yes I did install the patch from the babysoft web site for grizzly and I get the same results. I think the problem is also happening with Jim Kitchens Baseball but have not confirmed this. Again the strange thing is that its not like the right channel is out it does not pan for some reason. I installed an older version of direct exe and this has not helped. I have a second X P system and these games pan fine on that system but not on my main one. Lastly does any one know the phrase to type in to find out which version of direct exe you are running that would be great as well so I can see which version I am running. I would be Very happy if any of you could offer any suggestions as to what the heck is going on here. Thanks and Game On! Sly! ---
