    Re: PAX MASTER PCI XFI Driver Suite 2014V 1.00 ALL OS Stable Drivers Default Tweak Ed

    Ok, grabbed the correct drivers and attempted to install 2014 1.00

    No go. They all installed correctly, asked me to restart, which I did, and then once restarted the device shows up as it was pre install... i.e. multi channel soundcard .....or whatever it says, but not xf-i or your version of it...none of the software works either...i.e console etc.

    P.S I also tried to power off, remove card from slot, repower up, power down unplug, install card, power up and install...not different. Weird.

    I then removed the PAX driver via control panel add and remove software...re-install Creative official driver version 3.00.2004 straight away, no restart needed and bingo, card shows up as xf-i once again and all software works.

    I didn't un-install all the other associated programs that came with PAX because there is no need to.

    So back to square one, with standard driver installed.

    So, what next to do Robert?


    Cheers and thanks for your help.

    Ok, ran a manual setup of the setup.exe file from within the drivers folder and this got the 2014 drivers to stick, so I now have 2014 drivers listed in the device.

    Anything else I should install again? Will all the sound changes you've made be there so I get your enhanced sound or do I need todo something else?

    Cheers Rob

    Yep - 2/01/2014 is the date.
    Console works.

    Are the sound changes in the drivers themselves?

    The spelling errors doesn't matter. These "tweaks" have no effect. The driver itself is not modified in any way - you can't just add some random stuff in registry and hope the driver somehow magically understands what you meant it should do.

    Yup you can adjust in the tweaks in system 32 and wow 64 if you wish :) save and reboot again. Make sure your computer put to sleep to save settings then wake.

    He means he placebo effect lol say at what his will. I don't think he has good set of speakers to try the tweaks out get feeling of more bass in them. I have TS 514 I can tell the drifter in the drivers.

    Do you think that adding more bass via the bass boost in the console is needed or not?

    I'm a headphone user :) Philips X1's and I have an O2 amp on the way.

    Re: PAX MASTER PCI XFI Driver Suite 2014V 1.00 ALL OS Stable Drivers Default Tweak Ed

    Ok, so to install this suite over the top of the PAX I already have installed, I just restart my machine in the "Driver signing disabled" mode and then install new driver suit over top of the existing one.....Is that correct?

    Can someone explain to me just how these drivers differ from the factory ones?

    Cheers

    BTW: I'm a dyslexic with small OCD issues, so my typing is terrible too! Yeah baby!

    Re: PAX MASTER PCI XFI Driver Suite 2014V 1.00 ALL OS Stable Drivers Default Tweak Ed

    The driver is programmed in some way with some functions and these may or may not be configured via registry values. If you add a "tweak" that is not programmed in the driver then it is just useless junk. For example, you add "PerfectBass", what is that supposed to mean?. There is no definition of what it should do anywhere in the driver (it is not modified at all). It would be very easy if we could simply add anything (in human language, and with typos) to the registry or some ini file and some kind of AI would translate it and alter the audio signal exactly to the authors wish without knowing anything more than the word "Perfect". It doesn't work this way.

    First of all, thanks for the work that you do.
    Now I am having a problem installing your 2014 pack on windows 8.1. Everything installs but the driver and when I try to install it manually, it says that the driver doesn't have a hashfile and will not let it install at all. Any way around this? Thanks.
