Hiho A couple of questions ...... A few people I have spoke to are experiencing the audio dropping out during game . You get a gfx stutter , then silence from sound card . Is this a case of my AI drivers (external firewire) or a case of something that has changed in PS2 recently (IE are others now experiencing audio problems) ? The other point is one that has been brought up before . The stereo audio is not panning correctly , left and right are correct , but as you turn your viewpoint (eg) to the right . The loud noise that was in your left ear doesn't fade away proportional to the angle , but suddenly disappears . Might not like much , but lordy does is sound abnormal and disorientates from the game environment . Oh , just to add the obligatory part , nerf the TR in general , and the scatmax . Anything other than Vanu is easy mode . Your logic fails . Strawman fallacy . Deal with it . Any other BS you want to throw at it . Lets move on please , nothing to see apart from the audio problems !
