    Bad sound on my new computer ( Vista home premium ) " cracking noises "
    Civ4 is fine, problem is just with BTS, with or without v3.13 patch
    I reinstalled but nothing changed
    The same disk was OK on old computer with XP ...

    Thanks for help ( and thanks about previous text problem, it was solved easily
    with this forum advises )

    You've experimented with the audio device preferences in the game? They're choices like mono, stereo, eax, etc.

    I have tried them all ...
    The problem is worst when the movies play but persists during gameplay ...

    maybe the game tries to access a voice capturing device - so you might try this:
    open users\<name>\My Games\Beyond the Sword\civilizationIV.ini and set this value to 0:
    Code:
    ; Enable voice over IP capture and playback
    EnableVoice = 1
    if that does not help try to set this one to 0:
    Code:
    ; Enable/disable background music
    PlayMusic = 1
    (this would of course not be a preferable solution).
