I have played OFP and OFP:R completely on my system. The other day I was playing a mission and a shilka shot at my helicopter. As soon as the shilka sound should have played, the WindowsXP crashed with blue screen in ctaud2k.sys (Creative labs audio driver). I rebooted and reloaded my game and the same thing happened. Since this was a user made mission, I thought I'd try an official OFP mission, 'Red Dawn' at the end of OFP. Once again, everything was fine until a shilka shot at me. So, I get consistent blue screen crashes, either immediately, or the sound stops and the machine crashes later, whenever the shilka fires.
So what's to blame? It didn't use to crash when I played campaigns and missions before so I think it is one of the following:
o WindowsXP Service Pack1 caused it.
o OFP is corrupt and I need to re-install it.
o New creative labs or other drivers have caused it.
I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this problem since my system config is fairly common. I can consistently reproduce this problem, but dont like doing it too much cause it occasionally destroys my game preferences (key settings etc.)
