Hi Scott,

As you say, that sound issue is not netbook related; it's got to do with DirectSound and certain hardware. It's been acknowledged by Microsoft, and not much can really be done to resolve it at the application level. I have experienced it on some machines, while on my own and a whole bunch of other machines that I have tried it on everything works flawlessly. It is thus not a sound editing issue, as I am very particular when trimming and fading the edges of all my sounds.


As for the performance improvement, it is not very noticeable in the jungle world; it's especially apparent in the cave and death world. That's where people report the most difference.

Kind regards,

Philip Bennefall

Hi Philip,

The transition issue isn't something that affects actual playability,
but I'm getting pops between speech clips that are particularly
noticeable when speech files are playing on their own to announce
levels and points and the like.  The only thing I can liken it too is
that I've heard similar things occur when I've placed two sounds to
play one after the other in various audio sinarios if both have been
meticulously topped and tailed without any sort of crossfade between
them.  At a guess that's what's happening here, because it doesn't
seem to be netbook specific (it happens on a much higher spec laptop
with a different sound chipset that I also have activated Q9 on).

Not a biggy, but I hope that helps you identify whether the problem is
happening at your end too.

1.0.1 seems slightly snappier to me, but it's a marginal difference.
I haven't played through any further than the end of the Jungle world
on the netbook, but up until that point it seems playable here so long
as you don't have too many other tasks fighting it for resources.

Hi Scott,

When you say that the transitions aren't very good, what exactly do you
mean? What happens with the voice? And do you notice any improvements
between 1.0 and 1.0.1?

Kind regards,

Hmm, having played through a few more levels I'm starting to see what
you mean a bit.  Transitions between voiceover clips aren't
particularly pleasant, and I can notice a performance hit when a
background task suddenly demands some juice out of the poor thing.

1.0.1 seemed a long way from unplayable if a tad jurky, though I've
got no idea how it'd fair once you get to something like the death
world.

Seen it running on a totally stock Samsung NC10 here and all seemed
well. I'm not sure which Netbook you're running but specs-wise it's
pretty much swings and roundabouts, so I'm not sure why you're having
issues.

I had no problem running Q9 on my netbook. I have an Asus 900HA and
it works
fairly well in high performance mode. It works perfectly in super
performance mode. You can adjust the power settings using the
utility found
in the system tray on Asus EEEpc netbooks. I presume that other
netbooks
have similar facilities. The only upgrade I have on my netbook is 2
gb of
ram instead of the one it came with.
