I have been looking for a post like this but couldn't find any so my problem is: When I am playing the game, and tanks are coming my way, I can hear them coming from very, very far. I suppose that, in RL this isn't possible. I have an onboard AC97 chipset from RealTek, and have updated those drivers to the latest version. I have also updated the game. What can I do to solve this problem? (BTW: EAX: DISABLED/Hardware Acceleration: DISABLED). I cannot enable hardware acceleration.
