Crackling Noise Sound with Radial Engines

Archived from groups: alt.games.microsoft.flight-sim (More info?)

I'm sure I can't be the only person with this annoyance, but whenever
I use a plane with a radial engine (excluding the DC3 that came with
FS9), I get a crackling noise throught the PC speakers,

I've moved all the appropriate setting in the FS Sound environment,
however can't get rid of it.

Has anyone found a cure?

    I have no idea if this is related to your problem, but some time ago,
    I had similar problems with my Soundblaster Live 5.1 sound card, and
    someone suggested turning down (or off) the "hardware acceleration"
    setting for the sound card.

    I really don't know enough about hardware to make a reasonable
    diagnosis (or even to know if it's a hardware or software problem),
    so my "cure" idea here is sort of like hitting something with a
    hammer to see if anything will happen (but you never
    know...sometimes, that works!). :-)

    Me too. The Cessna seems to be the worst in my stock. Dont know what
    causes it. Have changed the sound quality to no avail. Also when I
    upgraded my hardware on pc including motherboard with new onboard sound chip
    still does it though not all the time. Suppose people with mostly say need
    proper soundcard or updated drivers for sound.

    Hi Lawn Dart,

    You'll have to speak up, a little - I couldn't hear your reply.

    If you're running Win XP, which you probably are and have a Soundblaster
    Live 5.1 card this might be of interest. I had a similar problem which
    affected some jet airliners. I then investigated my PC system and found that
    Windows had installed Microsoft drivers for my sound card even though I had
    thought I'd installed Creative's drivers. So I selected "update driver" in
    Control Panel/System/Hardware tab/soundcard/driver, told Windows to search
    my Creative disc and it then installed the proper Creative drivers. Problem
    was instantly solved! Maybe this will help - I hope so. :0))
