After about 10 minutes of gameplay, I am forced to exit the game and relaunch it. It usually happens after I load a saved game, like if I'm in a particularly tough fight on hardcore and have to quicksave and quickload frequently. Music remains, but all other sound effects cease. This eliminates it being some weird codec problem as the oggs are the only thing that continue to play. Lowering sound acceleration doesn't work, all my drivers and up to date, and there's nothing strange about my setup. The soundcard is an Audigy 2ZS and probably isn't the problem. I'd more interested in hearing if others have encountered a similar problem (I found two or three references after searching the forum, but they were vague and from 2004) than I am being troubleshooted for configuration errors. So, has anyone seen this problem?
Currently playing with the .exe patched to use only one of my CPU cores by default... I'll test more and report back, and if it works, you can bet there will be similar threads in the future as more people get dualcore processors.
