Hi, I just upgraded from XP home to Windows 7 Ultimate after installing a new hard drive and whenever I go into a battle the sounds die off to just a hit or thump every so often. At first I hear all the hits and swings and background noises but then after a few seconds most of the sounds disappear and I hear the occasional thump of a hit or a swing. After the fighting is over the sounds return to normal. Its as if the game can only handle a few sounds at a time.
I've tried turning on EAX and also tried swapping to the generic software on the speakers. The generic option works longer before the sounds die out.
I have a Creative SB-XFI sound card with the latest drivers.
