Star Wars Battlefront

Creative Labs SoundBlaster Live! or SoundBlaster Live! OEM

When playing Star Wars Battlefront on a SoundBlaster Live!, you may experience the following issues:

  • You may not hear sound from your rear speakers when the Output Mode is set to Surround.

  • Adjusting the Output Mode in Audio Options does not correctly change the speaker configuration. This occurs because the Output Mode is using the speaker configuration that is selected in the Creative Labs Speaker Settings application.

  • When Mixer Config is set to Hardware with Output Mode set to Quadraphonic, rear speaker output may sound the same as the front. This does not occur when the Mixer Config is set to Software.

  • When using the SB Live! OEM, blaster sounds may play in an erratic pattern during a firefight. Please add the command line /audiomixbuffer 50 to the Battlefront.exe shortcut, which corrects this issue.

    NOTE: Adding this switch helps correct stuttering, skipping, or hitching in the games soundtrack. To do this:

    • Navigate to the GameData folder where you installed the game, right-click on Battlefront.exe and select Create a Shortcut from the menu.

    • Right-click on the shortcut you just created and select Properties from the popup menu.

    • Set your cursor after the parenthesis at the end of the path in the Target dialogue box.

    • Hit the space bar once and then type /audiomixbuffer 50.

    • Click the Ok button.

    • Launch Star Wars Battlefront from the shortcut you just made.

    IMPORTANT: You cannot use command line switches with the Battlefront shortcut created during installation. This shortcut points to a different executable file.
