sound latency in enemy territory


Hey,
my sounds works fine in my Gentoo, I installed enemy territory lately, was surprised that everything worked immediately, except for the sound, which is always playing half a second later than the action that triggered the sound. Anybody would knew what to do?

Try turning down the sound quality and some of the more demanding specs. Enemy territory was too much for my boxen the way it was configured, so I had to change it a bit.

Hm, I'll try that, although the game runs like a charm at 1280*1024.

still the same, and I installed ut2003 today, and that has the same problem! So I think it is something with my sound in Linux and not et. Sound in xawtv, xmms, mplayer, etc works fine.

don't know if you got your sound delay problem fixed, but I had that same problem too. For ut2003 I had to download the openal source from http://www.openal.org/ and compile it. When compiling the openal source, it will create a libopenal.so.0.0.6 file which you rename to openal.so and copy to the System folder, REPLACING the openal.so file under the ut2003/System directory.

Hmm thanks, I'll try that out as soon as I've got Internet back on my linux box and I'll check if Enemy Territory uses the same file by accident.
