Q: I can hears footsteps and other sound from very large distances. This is annoying. What can I do? I have SoundBlaster Live of other EAX capable card.
A: This problem is probably caused by incorrect EAX calculation in large environments. Our communication with Creative Labs suggests it will be probably fixed
in next driver release for SB Live. Until it is fixed, you may want to disable EAX. Some users (mostly having SBLive 5.1) are able to use HW 3D acceleration, some have to disable even 3D acceleration to get around this bug.
