bad sound with Grand Theft Auto: Vice City on Cedega 4.4


When I'm Playing GTA Vice City I'm getting this crappy, metallic sound. I went to Options -> Audio and it seems to be on "dsound3d Software Emulation"... I tried to change it to "dsound3d Hardware Support", but it says (within the game menu) : "Hardware not available - Original Setting Restored". I'm using ALSA (tried also to change to the ALSA drive in ~/.transgaming/conf, but it didn't help). Sound card is Creative / Ensoniq AudioPCI 1371 (module is ens-1371).
any ideas?

Aren't there any other sound engines available? There should be, Vice City supports quite a few. If you can, try Miles Positional 2D.

nope, only "dsound3d Software Emulation", "dsound3d Hardware Support", two Creative engines (Creative eax and Creative 3 eax) which shows the same message ("Hardware not available - Original Setting Restored") and some "Rad Tools" or something which is working, but giving the same bad sound.

Ok. Have you tried changing Cedega to use OSS instead of Alsa? Just guessing, I wish I could help you more.

edit: Ah, never mind.
