As reported last time, I have been working on the audio stuttering issue. It appears that it was dependent on audio hardware and most likely its driver behavior. So, I have rewritten the audio output yet again.
I’m also including a fix for a freeze in at least Gex and Super Street Fighter II!
- 4DO now uses DirectSound for audio playback. This gave me gave me more control over the audio playback and it should remove the stuttering issues that some machines were experiencing.
Also, SlimDX.dll is now being included in the 4DO release ZIP files, so this should help the situations in which the SlimDX runtimes weren’t installing on machines properly (64 bit machines, so I hear).
If you want to try 4DO 188.8.131.52 beta, head to to the download page:
