I'm Fed Up With Creative in Audio Hardware Posted May 14, 2008 · Edited May 14, 2008 by faheyd I'll try the daniel k drivers. But otherwise, how's the XPlosion? I had the opposite experience with Xplosion, nothing but problems. But the latest driver release ( http://www.auzentech.com/site/download/updates.php ) fixed all the problems. They must have hired someone smart on the software driver side. It no longer mutes the microphone when starting BF2. The mic level is still low for this expensive piece of equipment, but I can live with that.
