Shadow Warrior Sound Patch Released

Ken Silverman has released another sound patch as a follow-up to the Duke Nukem 3D sound patch he released last week. This one does the same thing, only for Shadow Warrior! Make sure to check out the readme file for the patch before you attempt to install it.

For some time now, several customers of ours who have PCI sound cards (most specifically the Sound Blaster Live) have experienced sound problems when playing Shadow Warrior. Not everyone has encountered this problem, but for those who did, the sound errors and irregularities have been particularly annoying. Some of the places where this is happening in Shadow Warrior are:

*Episode 1, Level 1: In the pool

*Episode 1, Level 1: On the train tracks (near the end of the level)

Help is finally available for these folks. Available now on our master download page is a very small patch for Shadow Warrior which will correct this problem. If you download this patch and apply it, it will correct the problem for you. A few caveats about the patch:

*This is only for the following versions of Shadow Warrior: US v1.2 (both shareware & registered)

*None of the 3DFX patches are supported.

*No functionality is added to the game, nor is any game play changed. This is a minor sound patch only.

You can download this patch now, and if you run into any trouble, please make sure that your version of Shadow Warrior is installed, and has not been modified. If it has, the patch is likely to fail. In that event, you should reinstall your game from the original CD's and attempt to reapply the patch. If this still does not work, contact our Tech Support department.

For further technical support on any of our games, please visit our new Tech Support Online area, which contains the most common answers and solutions for just about every one of our games.

A special thanks goes out to Ken Silverman for getting this patch worked out. Ken is the original Build code programmer, and you can visit his web site here.
