Call of duty sound lag


I finally got the game to install and play and it looks great- BUT the sound is lagging by about 2 to 3 seconds and in a war game where your getting shot at--it kinda sucks

you need either wine, or cedega to play it, cedega is easier to do it with, but cedega requires you to buy a subscription. you can get a 3 month subscription which entitles you to an upgraded version of cedega while your subscribed, when ur subscription ends you stuck eith the last one you got. It has a gui for installing programs, as far I am a=ware its easier to isntall windows games with cedega and ita more suited to gaming because they have done extra work on the direct x things.

Sound Lag

I'm having the same problem as the parent post... a very distinct sound lag in Call Of Duty. I'm using on-board audio, could that be the problem?
