    5.1 sound in UT3 ?

    Hi everyone,

    I'm having some problems getting my 5.1 sound to work in UT3.

    I have an Asus P5KC motherboard which has integrated Realtek High Definition Audio (5.1) (Realtek HD driver R1.84)

    In the Realtek HD Audio Manager there is an option to test the 5.1 setup, when I run this test all speakers work like they should. But in UT3 only the front left & right (stereo sound) speakers work.

    I tried both with and without OpenAL but it doesn't seem to change much.

    What gives?

    That's weird I get 5.1 with dolby digital. If I fire a rocket and then turn around, I can hear it explode in the speakers behind me. So I know the game works in 5.1

    Do you have any other games that do work in 5.1?

      yep, as far as I can tell all other games (NFS Pro Street, COD4, Test Drive Unlimited) work fine.

        lol sounds just as bad as the sound support for Creative Fatality cards! This is all Epic - nothing to do with creative or realtek.

          it's a ploy to make me buy a new soundcard...

          So I take it there isn't a known solution for this?

              The game, as good as it looks, was not designed for PCs in mind, so far clear, why we have clunky menus and a cropped up server browser.

              I only hope it will get better with the following patches, or I will sell my copy and leave the unreal franchise I have been so passionate about since 9 years.

                I'm having exactly the same problem with my onboard xfx Realtek HD R1.84. Its a shame because I have optical out on the motherboard and not much space left for an additional soundcard.

                Let me know if you find a fix.

                  Lol hardly, I have a Creative X-Fi card and since the 1.1 patch I can't use surround at all because the game locks up every 5 minutes.

                    You need to be in openAL mode.

                      Thanks for your suggestion, but if you actually would have read my post you would have known I allready tried it with OpenAL on and off. It doesn't make a difference.

                      So has anyone found a solution for this yet? (EPIC Guys do you actually read this?!)

                        bump, after giving up in Online gameplay I got the decency of completing the campaign, after all I don't want to just waste my money.

                        And sadly, this problem persists, no Surround sound, I'm using a Realtek HD onboard soundcard, and it works flawlessly for all other 5.1 sound games, but not in UT.

                        The cherry on top is that, the standalone UDK SURROUND WORKS, 4.0, 5.1 you name it, it works and it has NO configuration whatsoever for either graphic or sound quality.

                        I think this was some kind of despisable move by Epic to force customers to buy Creative sound cards for UT3, but in UDK you can see that Unreal Engine 3 works perfectly without the Creative bull****.

                        Seriously guys....
