Creative ALchemy 1.3 for X-Fi

4 posts in this topic

Creative ALchemy Project allows you to run your favorite DirectSound3D games on Windows Vista as the developers intended - with full hardware accelerated 3D Audio and EAX support! This is done by translating DirectSound calls into OpenAL. In order for this to happen, a couple of files need to be installed into each game directory. This is handled automatically by the ALchemy installer - but can also be performed manually by advanced users.

The latest version of Creative ALchemy includes several new features and support for more games. If you have previously tried to run an unsupported game on a previous build of Creative ALchemy, then please try again using this version. If your game is not on the supported list then follow the instructions in the Advanced Users guide to manually add support.


New Features

Added re-sizing horizontal scroll bars to game list boxes (so you can see the whole name!)

Added new ini file variable 'GamePath' that lets you specify any path to a game folder (useful when you can't find a registry key)

Added ability to multi-select games using the Shift key

New Games

Baldur's Gate 2

Battlefield Vietnam

C & C Generals

Chronicles of Riddick

Dungeon Siege

Far Cry


GTA Vice City

Hitman 2

Knights of the Old Republic 2



Serious Sam 2

Serious Sam First Encounter

Bug Fixes

Fixed dsound.dll incorrectly applying EAX properties to duplicated buffers

Fixed dsound.dll duplicate sound buffer problem (fixes Far Cry, MDK2, Serious Sam 2 and many others)

I tried this last night with Oblivion, with very impressive results. Can't believe this is from Creative!
