Another crappy driver release from Creative..

The saga continues. Creative have finally released a driver update for Vista which claims to fix all the problems with lack of surround sound, no EAX, etc. What it actually does is put out really thin, crappy sound from the front/rear/centre speakers and kills the sub. Very helpful. Can't tell whether EAX is working because this. When you test the speakers from the Windows sound control panel the sub works, but doesn't the rest of the time. Ah well, nearly there Creative. Try again.
I really don't understand why they can't get this right. The XP drivers work for everything bar EAX so why not just modify that and leave the rest alone?

Got back tonight, eventually got home about 2 hours after landing having discovered that someone else appeared have gone home with my luggage... Huzzah! Hopefully it'll turn up.
Will post more about the holiday later. Too knackered now. Need bed, but felt the need to bitch.
