    The latest driver modded using Audigy4 drivers, but it does no work with Audigy4.

    Cnbeta Pax V1.0 driver was produced by admin_guo and YouP through a new mod method without modding any system files(For Win2000、WinXP、Win2003、Win98se、WinMe、Longhorn & etc. operating system). These drivers are optimized for X86,Ia64 and Amd64; and support SBLive, but we haven't been tested for most SBLive cards more.(not strongly recommended to install on SBLive). Support Audigy(not Audigy LS)、Audigy2、Audigy2 ZS series. Please install DX 9.0C or higher version before you install these drivers. To ensure your installation complete, please uninstall all sound drivers now you are using! Use PAX uninstaller to remove current PAX drivers, do not to use Cnbeta Pax V 1.0 uninstaller to remove the old drivers on your OS.

    EIDIT:
    New drivers have been released.

    PAX-NewYear v1.1 drivers for Win2000、WinXP、Win2003、Longhorn (not WIN98、WINME; installation requires to abort if you do so, and then click “OK†to exit) support Audigy (not Audigy LS), Audigy2, Audigy2 ZS LS(Audigy2 value), Audigy2 ZS Notebook(Audigy2 PCMCIA), EMU1212 and Audigy2 ZS; but no SB Live supported(SB live modded drivers are coming soon). Please install Microsoft Direct X 9.0C or higher version before you install these drivers. Because these drivers enhance sound quality, you could turn down your volume on speaker setting lower than 75%.

    Features:

    -Add “Creative volume control†tweak of A2 ZS value Package (but cannot select quantity of speakers); you are able to adjust most of functions directly for your sound card.

    -support more cards includes Audigy2 ZS Notebook (Audigy2 PCMCIA)

    -Automatically detect the type of your Operating System

    -Fix several puny bugs.

    To ensure your installation completed, please uninstall all sound drivers now you are using! Use PAX uninstaller to remove current PAX drivers, do not to use PAX-NewYear v1.1 uninstaller to remove the old drivers on your OS.

    These drivers keep tone details well and do not modify original timbre. Please use High quality media sources to play music; hissing is easy to emerge form low quality sources played.

    Edit:

    PAX-NewYear v1.2 released.

    PAX-NewYear v1.2 for Win2000, WinXP, Win2003, Longhorn (do not support WIN98, WINME and WINNT) produced through modifying Creative official 5.12.10.1042 drivers. Audigy(not Audigy LS), Audigy2, Audigy2[font=&#23435]A2 ZS LS(A2 ZS value), Audigy 2 ZS Notebook(Audigy 2 PCMCIA), Audigy2 ZS(not Gateway OEM), Emu-DSP series (not SB Live series) are supported with these drivers. [/font]



    The drivers include two edits:
    Games Edit: Optimized for games to provide good compatibility and stability as Creative official drivers. This edit is gamers’ best choices.

    Music Edit: Optimized for playing unique and pop music. High, intermediate, and low frequency are processed to be enhanced separating.



    Recommendation:

    If you are using Windows XP, you would better have at least one NTFS partition on your hard disk (it can be any path). If you have NTFS partition, your volume of analog output will be at least twice higher as the volume without NTFS partition. It suits for headphone, and analog output has improvement with headphone. Turn down your speaker volume (on your speakers) lower than 60% of it before install the drivers.





    Features:

    -fix conflict when install DVD-AUDIO software under Windows 2003

    -fix mute of front speaker channels on Audigy/Audigy2/Audigy2 ZS platinum sound card.

    -A new MIDI device, “Creative SoundFont Synth” added on Audigy/Audigy2 /Audigy2 ZS series

    -fix several puny bugs of driver installation

    -multi languages supported (no Japanese)



    Please uninstall all current drives you are using, unless your system breaks down! Use PAX uninstaller to remove current PAX drivers, do not to use PAX-NewYear v1.2 uninstaller to remove the old drivers on your Operating System.

    The drivers have been re-uploaded. PAX NewYear 1.2 drivers you are downloading now have no language issue. If you downloaded these drivers before, you have to look at words below to fix language issue:

    download CtPanel.rar(special thanks ()))FPPfan))> and germanjulian):
    http://www.members.lycos.co.uk/fppfan/CtPanel.rar

    or

    http://germanjulian.com/open/CtPanel.rar

    And thank DaEnigma and hacker3000 for providing the help.

    You just need to extract this file to be 3 files and copy them to "C:\WINNT\System32\"(to this path if your system is Window2000. If your OS is Window XP, the path should be c:\WINDOWS\system32) only. Next, cut them out from "C:\WINNT\System32\", and then copy them to "C:\WINNT\System32\" again.:)

Now all I want those addons software package :D What speakers you have? Mine the logitech 5.1 70watts :)

    I installed these drivers and everything seems to be working fine, but do you know if they support EAX in games? I am not exactly sure how to test this.

    I have a Audigy ZS now not LS like in my sig.

Please !!! I can't find nobody who can do it :( :( :( You are my last hope...no one in any forum can help me...
