    YouP PAX software package


    Each software package is different modded Creative INSTALLATION AND APPLICATION CD. You can download to directly install and use them without any modding by yourself. Pick up one you like to install. Though the drivers are included in this software package, you can install them solely and we are strongly recommanded install YouP PAX drivers with these software packs.

    Software List
    Packages below are the latest:

    LIVE NewYear (Jan, 21, 2004)

    It's modded Audigy2 ZS CD for SBLive users only

    try last link, perhaps fastest for you...
    detailed manuel

    This package includes the following software...

    Creative AudioHQ
    Creative Diagnostics
    Creative MiniDisc Center
    Creative Restore Defaults
    Creative Surrond Mixer
    Creative Speaker Setting
    Creative EAX Control Panel
    SoundFont Manager
    Audio Stream Recorder 2
    Creative MediaSource

    This software package also includes THREE differenct drivers for you to choose! A dialog box will prompt you for which one you want after you've installed the creative software package. Although the text is in Chinese code, you can still refer to the number below as they have been translated in the right order. (But we strongly recommend you to install YouP PAX ULTRA VI drivers with the package)

    1.) Offical version 253 WDM driver. This driver offers best stability and compatibility with games and software. The core of the driver has not been moded. This is best for those who has stability in front of everything.

    2.) Optimized for Live 5.1 . The sound quality is optimzed under the goal of keeping the stability and compatibility. It improves SRC from offical driver. This driver has been tested with many games and shows no major bug. A very balanced (quality vs stability) driver.

    3.) Optimized for Live / Value (4.1). This driver is only intended for music lovers. Since this driver is moded to favour Quality, this driver lacks stabilty/compatibility. Beta testing shows most games renders okay. Games that support 5.1 audio will have centered and bass swapped. However, this will not affect DVD playback. Some of the EAX affects will not be rendered correctly. Selecting different channel (not sure he means DVD language track, or channel as in 2speaker/4speaker/headphone) will mute the volume or result in system crash.

    - remove old driver before installing new one (refer to first post and follow instructions carefully.)- after installing the driver and reboot, mute CD Audio. Otherwise you will hear lots of static noise.
    - vxd driver is recommended for Win9x users

    Before installing the drivers ...
    - delete wdma10k1.inf from Inf folder (show hidden files first)
    - reboot with network cable disconnected or no internet access, otherwise windows xp will download the driver itself
    - remove SB related drivers in Device Manager

    Install ...
    you'll be greeted with 4 radio button as selections...
    1.) install both software package + driver
    2.) install software only
    3.) install driver only
    4.) uninstall driver

    Press Next to next screen
    Press Cancel if there's a dialog box pops up (titled: Creative YouP-PAX 驱动之家专用,游飘制作,means "produced by YouP, owned by
    DO NOT change installation path, otherwise some problems may show up later

    click Install below the checks
    MUST select Customize Installation (middle of the 3 buttons)

    Operating System:

    Win2000 Service Pack 4

    WinXP[font=&#23435]([/font]SP1 or higher[font=&#23435])[/font]

    Audigy(no Audigy LS supported)


    Audigy2 ZS (includes Gateway OEM Audigy2 ZS)

    Drivers provided:

    SB Live:

    1.UP X-FI For Live drivers, which are produced basing on modded fix clash and all functions of applications can be run. These drivers that have to be installed on NTFS partition; and provide one time more than the volume other drivers provide; and provide “coacervation” for sound optimization; and multi-language supported. Disadvantage that EAX effect causes distortion in games occurs. It is recommended to be installed for the person who listen to music and use Audigy4’s applications.
    more disadvantage:
    -lot of Chinglish found
    -EAX.exe in process runtime error
    -Distortion in EAX games

    2.YouP PAX VI v1.68 drivers, which optimized for music sound quality more but low frequency is not sufficient not to suit for playing symphony. All games running properly but the aside has a little bug in “Max Pane2”. And this set of drivers has a good compatible with Audigy4 software. And these drivers are modded basing on drivers of “SBLive Preferential Edit” which is on sale in China only. All “standard-Creative-soundcards” are able to use this set of drivers with a new feature, “SPDIF IN”. The drivers contain a modding method which improves sound quality on WinXP and will modify your system files (the files will be restored after you process the uninstaller). Always choose “Yes[font=&#23435]”[/font] to replace the current files while installation presents old files found. This hugest disadvantage is that this set of drivers supports Simplified Chinese only. (You have to choose Simplified Chinese Installation Interface if you want to install it).

    Audigy X series:

    YouP PAX ZS v3.89 drivers base on CT drivers modded for lyric music and are the best compatible with NewYear package. Games sound is tested with EAX4 supported. The drivers contain a modding method which improves sound quality on WinXP and will modify your system files (the files will be restored after you process the uninstaller). Always choose “Yes” to replace the current files while installation presents old files found. The drivers also include a patch that is used for softmod Audigy2@Audigy2ZS. Note: This set of drivers does not support Audigy 2 ZS Notebook sound card.

    Extra applications (optional):

    1. Creative MediaSource 3 (v3.10.16)

    The latest update for Audigy4 Pro.

    2. EAX Console Argent Theme

    The latest update for Audigy4 Pro: Argent Theme

    3. Creative Smart Recorder (v2.10.56)

    The latest update for Audigy4 Pro.

    4. Creative Entertainment Center

    Use for Audigy x platinum/Audigy2 ZS Pro. It is not recommended to be installed on other sound card unless there is a bug, shut-down-delay which brings stagnation when you turn off PC.

    5. AudioHQ

    Add AudioHQ instead of Decoder of Creative Audio Control Panel which cannot be used on Audigy.

    6. Creative MiniDisc Center

    Version 1.50.20 of Audigy2 ZS.

    7. Creative PlayCenter 2

    To open CMSS for SBLive.

    Description about cracking:

    SBLive series sound cards are able to use all application except Creative DVD-AUDIO Player, THX Console, Graphical EQ, and DTS decoder. But THX Console and Graphical EQ are reserved for future modding.

    Audigy series sound card has entire functionality including Creative DVD-AUDIO player but DTS decoding.

    Audigy2/Audigy2 ZS series is able to run all applications of this package.

    Bit-Accurate Playback which supported for Audigy4 Pro and Audigy2 Value only is not able to be hacked.


    To ensure installation completed, Please uninstall all Creative software and drivers before you install it. It is recommended to be installed under a fresh OS. The applications and drivers of Audigy X 2005 NewYear are able to be uninstalled by the uninstaller. please reserve 600MB space on partition C:\ to store application files which will be removed after installation.

    Creative DVD-AUDIO Payer will not be installed under Windows2003 to avoid DVD-AUDIO issue, and please install WinDVD or other DVD players instead of.

    How to install it (thanks e v o. ie, you card is Audigy)
    1. Removed, creative software, current drivers (via the installer if you are using YouP PAX drivers), folders, reg entries

    2. restarted, started audigy x 2005 installer, chose the "Audigy/Audigy2" ;(NOTE: you can selecte the 2nd a bunch if you did "hardmod a2->zs", it means you flashed 93C46 chip before to turn your Audigy2 to be an Audigy2 ZS)

    3. Chose the first option, the pack and the 5.12s

    4. the software screen pops up first, then the creative installer, like gamergod says, DO NOT press next on the non creative screen. PRESS Next on the creative screen and keep the audigy 2 and the mediasource selected, go thru the installation, until the creative pop up finally closes. (should end with a registration thing, annoying i know)

    5. THEN, press next on the remaining software screen to update the software u just installed. It should install flawlessly. Restart

    6. Enjoy, modify the startup stuff so the bloatware doesnt pop up.

    About uninstalling other Creative drivers and software:
    Go to Control Panel and execute “Add or Remove Programs” to uninstall all Creative software and a program named “Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS” (“Sound Blaster Live” for SBLive; “Sound Blaster Audigy” for Audigy; “Sound Blaster Audigy 2” for Audigy2). Then open “regedit” and delete:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Creative Tech
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Creative TechHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet002\Control\Creative TechHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet002\Control\Creative Tech

    Next, remove directory X:\Program Files\Creative, after restart you computer. If you still cannot install NewYear Package after you have done all procedures above, please re-install your Windows.
