Im wondering if Cryptic will ever fix the crashing issue with adding the ignore64 tag. Seriously i love playing this game and i love it even more with sound but sometimes it crashes after 30 seconds of play time.

Hey Dev's any Eta on when this will be patched?

The problem is the realtek driver and has to be fixed by realtek.

Hi all
(Bumping this to see if there's a fix yet, and since there's likely not, what the best sound card is to get...)

I have this problem also, but I was able to acquire an old SoundBlaster Live 5.1, but I can't get that work. Interestingly, if I boot the game with that selected as my default sound card, and then change it in game to my Realtek, i get audio, but the game crashes within a few minutes. At least its enough to hear the wonderful Nimoy blurbs when entering a new sector block..

That said I don't want to upgrade from XP 64-bit, so can anyone recommend some good sound cards or card chipsets with excellent Windows XP 64-bit edition drivers for us stubborn XP64 folks, since Creative's always seem a little lackluster? My motherboard has no PCI-Express, so either PCI or USB for me. Thanks!


Specs
Windows XP Professional 64-bit Edition
Gigabyte K8U-939 motherboard, Athlon64 X2 3800, 3.5 GB RAM, ATi X1950 GT
originally built in 2002, upgraded last in 2006, runs STO very, very, well other than the audio issue...

Your best bet would be to try and nab one of the original Sound Blaster Live! cards off of Ebay. The reason for this is that the embedded drivers in XP 64 were the last ones released so it should be a simple plug/play deal with no other drivers needed. Had a friend do this and it cured their Realtek issue once and for all since nothing was going to get him to change the OS. Here are some models to look for:

Sound Blaster Live! Platinum CT4760P
Sound Blaster Live! X-Gamer CT4760X
Sound Blaster Live! MP3+ CT4760M
Sound Blaster Live! CT4760

You should be able to just search on CT4760 and pull up a LOT of options and get them for about $10 or so. The only real downside to this is that you'll not have 5.1 audio so that is something to consider if that is an issue. If you have to have a 5.1 audio sound card the best bet would be to snag an older Audigy sound card which should be easy to find for about $20 or so.

I have real tek driver with a chip set audio card but only win 32 bit so i didn't try the ignore command list ..

Any tips out there ?
This does indeed work. Rquires not that work. Follow the instructions correctly then you may get this to work. MIght want to get the full version though. As trail version says "Trail" every 5 seconds which would get very annoying lol.

Maybe I missed it. Sorry if I did. But have you tried the XP 64 bit drivers from Gigabyte for that board.

Or gone to the realtek website and downloaded and tried their drivers

The ignore command was working great until the last patch, keep getting crashes, that require a full patch run again. Any thing from Realtek on this?
