Error Message: Please install directx9 compatible sound card

#1bootytunaPosted 10/26/2008 3:10:46 PM
I'm using a sound card that has work fine with all of the current pc games: Sound Blaster Audigyy 2 ZS. Evidentally there are other people having the same problem and are using top-of-the-line cards. Does Anyone know how this can be fixed or bypassed until there is a patch or something?

Looks like it only happens with people that have separate sound cards, while it doesn't occur with integrated.

Nope, that guess doesn't work. Tried two different systems with different boards, both with integrated sound and both have the directx9c error

Well, after it gives me that error message, it continues on with the game up through the intro. cinematic comeplete with sound. It's after the intro, during the load screens when it freezes.

That happens exactly on one of the systems I tried it on, the other shortly after the DX9c error it keeps going for a little bit then gives a general failure and asks to send a report to microsoft.

I'm having this problem as well. I can't believe I paid 29.99 for a game that doesn't work.
