Has anybody heard of "open AL", I am trying to play quake 4 on my pc, I finally got it installed after several problems, but now I can get as far as chooseing my dificulty level, the game starts to load & then i am presented with the games main menu again,my pc meets the manufacturers minimum spec & i have installed the latest drivers to graphics & sound as advised in the readme. my audio is "Via AC97 Audio Controller".
In the quake 4 advanced audio settings it tells me:- 1.sound device: no choices defined, 2.Warning your sound card does not support open AL.Anyboady any ideas or does someone want to buy a cheap copy of Quake4..??

That's it..!! but unless i am missing something a bit obvious, i cant see how it downloads into my via ac97 controller

OH..! & I have downloaded & installed "OpenAL 1.1 Installer for Windows and OpenAL 1.1 SDK for Windows". They didn't make any difference that i could see & the game still does the same as above.

"If you select OPENAL in the Quake 4 menu and the game crashes all the time and it will not give you the choice to Unselect OpenAL just open the game directory ,Open q4base then look for the Quake4config file then open it with notepad, look for 'seta s_useOpenAL "1"' and change the '1' to a '0' this will switch off the OpenAL support and let you put the game on again - It saves you having to uninstall all the time."
