Oblivion in game music skipping

Q: Oblivion in game music skipping

hey everbody,

i have a slight problem on my hands. when i play oblivion, the in-game music skips a lot. all the other sounds like footsteps/swords/battles/environments play perfectly fine but the background music won't stop skipping. I use a creative x-fi soundblaster xtreme music card to which i recently updated the drivers to and a sennheiser hd555 headset as well. I can provide any extra info needed.

thanks in advance,
funk

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

I've been having this problem for quite a while now.

I will play a song through winamp (or any music player) and it will play but it will skip every so often. It seems like when there are processes going on in my computer. Im pretty sure its not the speakers because it will play fine and then start skipping. I recently added 1.5 GB of RAM to my laptop to put it at 2.0GB so I don't think that's the problem.

Any ideas?

A:music is skipping

Skipping generally occurs because the sound card/chip is CPU-intensive.There are other causes, http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=m...ips&aqi=g10One alternative used to be to use an actual sound card, rather than onboard sound.Louis

Hello,

I am having an issue when I stream music online-- the audio skips. I have this issue with Pandora and with AOL Online Music. There are times when it is not as bad, but most of the time it skips.

I have read many of the other threads on this subject and have followed all of the advice, without results:

My computer:

Dell Dimension DIM 2400
Pentuim (R) CPU 2.40GHz
2.39 GHz, 2.00 GB RAM

I have defragged my system; verified all the drivers are current; verified my audio card is current; verified my Flash is current; I've shut every other screen or application playing in the background; verified my IDP channels properties shows DMA rather than PIO; ran virus scans and Ad-Aware, all with no viruses.... and I still get the skipping....

I don't know what else I can check! Anyone have any other ideas??

Might want to look for updates for your audio drivers. You could always go to the windows update site, and check the hardware updates. That or go to your manufacturers site.

Since I installed Windows XP Pro, my music files have been skipping at times. My mp3's from the HD would skip every 30 seconds if I move my mouse around or type while my cda's from the CD would skip more often than the mp3's. This never happened on 98/ME. I've played the files on different media players(WMP, Winamp 2x, 5x) so I know that can't be the problem. I have the latest DirectX 9.0b. I attached a image of my sound devices, which one would be my sound card or do I have to look another place? I looked for drivers for all of them, but no luck :( Is there an official site for them cause I can't find it. Thanks

I have been burning cd's for a week now, and have had several songs sound as if they were not recorded correctly.

When I play the cd in my 2000 honda most songs sound great, but a few are horrible.

I took the cd and put it back in my cd/rm and the same song sounds fine.

I have not used the cd im my car until now, and was wondering if anyone else has had the same problem?

My burner indicates a successful burn after every cd, and after playing the cd in the burner appears OK, I wonder if car cds could be faulty, or not sensing all the tracks I recorded?

Also some songs seem to not be fully recorded.

If nobody has any input, I probably will try the dealer.

A:oblivion PC error when starting the game

Hi

Its probably just me, but i don't trust laptops much. Thats probably not ur problem though. You problem seems pretty weird and wide ranging. I'd suggest trying some of these options:
- Try downloading the freeware "oldblivion" and using that.
- Try getting a new cd crack.
- Get your friend to burn the disc.
- Update your graphics driver.
- Get one of them vista hotfixes off the internet. I also happen not to trust vista too, but people say that many Vista problems are just cause they don't have the hotfixes.

Hope it helps. Oblivion is an awesome game.

A:[SOLVED] Disabled '~'; key in Game(Oblivion)

Hello botbry,

I hope this will fix your issue.


Quote:




"If you have a new system with the Microsoft eHome devices, these will conflict with the program being able to read the scan code for the tilde key from the keyboard. Those Microsoft eHome devices or drivers need to be disabled in order to allow the game to "see" the tilde key being pressed. The MIRC (Microsoft Infrared Remote Control) seems to disable the tilde (~) key in both Oblivion and Morrowind. Simply disconnecting the MIRC from the USB port will fix this issue."

Hey

I was playing Oblivion on the default settings when I realized that I could play on a higher resolution because I have a good graphics card.
It was going fine for a while yet the last time I tried to play the game kept freezing on me.
I tried lowering the resolution and graphics but to no avail it still freezes.
I'm kinda confused now.
If it helps just recently I had Roxio on my computer and it refuses to uninstall properly. Everytime I start my computer an error comes on screen saying I need to run Roxio setup.exe which is complete Bull. I doubt this is connected to my video problem but Im not positive.

Anyway my main problem is the freezing of video during gameplay of Oblivion.

Can anyone help?
 

A:Computer freezing in Oblivion game

I solved (most of) my Oblivion lockups by editing Oblivion.ini, lowering iThreads and iNumHavokThreads values. Apparently the engine not that well multithreaded.

As for Roxio, you might be able to disable that startup thing with msconfig.

I used ImgBurn to burn some MP3s to a CD. Once burned most skip, with blank bits of silence (they sound perfect on the PC players). Even though the burner was tested to check everything and was used at half its speed. I then, just for testing purposes took those same MP3s and put them through Audacity, did a checksum thing, deleted the first few and last few 'empty' seconds from the MP3 files, added 2 seconds of silence and then converted them to wav--all this to test and see if the skipping would still happened and it did. So is problem the actual CDs, is it my CD/DVD Burner ( a brand new one) Or is it the files themselves? and if the files how can one test such files (and fix them) in order to avoid wasting CDs? thank you

A:Burned CD music skipping--multiple culprits possible

How much trial and error experimentation can you do---do you have another burning app? Another burner? Another brand of blank CDs to try?

Have you ever successfully burned CDs with Imgburn using this same batch of discs? If so, I'd suspect the new burner, particularly if it seems to happen on a wide variety of songs from various sources.

I've never had a problem with Imgburn and I assume you've successfully used it previously?

You might try CDBurnerXP as it has a good rep too:

CDBurnerXP: Free CD and DVD burning software

I use Taiyo Yuden blanks, which are high quality. Some burners are known to be finicky about what brands of CDs they like.

I tend to burn at 12x or 16x. I've only occasionally had skips and it seemed to be an issue with my playback unit rather than the burn--usually the playback was perfect.

There are mp3 testing apps such as mp3val, but I've never found them to be highly accurate. Sometimes a supposedly bad mp3 will play fine with no apparent defects and sometimes an audibly defective mp3 will pass all tests.

But even then...the sound will do it again after 2 min. of playing. If its any help, it usually happens if my character is in attack mode, or moving quickly. Please, can anyone help.

Ok, as for lately I wanted to get back into Oblivion, While I was waiting for the install i found the shivering isle patch, I had problems at first intalling the patch but it worked after a while.

And Now as before I installed the shivering isle patch Whenever i click enter or any other key on my laptop the game quits,
I do find that vista has solution?'s for this, but the solutions said that to update to the latest oblivion patch, wich i did..

Now this comes to my question: How can I fix oblivion from crashing if i click enter on the intro?

Ps: the game quits itself even after I get to the page where character making is.

Thanks in advance.

I play a game called Oblivion. SpySweeper came up and said Oblivion.exe was a Trojan horse. I have searched all over the net and understand that Backdoor.Oblivion is a trojan horse.

My question is: Is Backdoor.Oblivion associated with the game Oblivion???
Please help!! My dad wants to wipe the whole thing off the computer.

A:Oblivion.exe: Trojan Or Safe Game File?

Be honest here...i mean really honest. Is the legitimate commercial version of oblivion that you purchased?

Or is this a cracked oblivion that you had to copy the oblivion.exe over the original one? Lots of cracked games are malware as well...yeah you get a free copy but are now infected with something.

Hello,
I am experiencing small, but rather frequent skips at seemingly random times during online games, such as Battlefield Bad Company 2 and Team Fortress 2. My ping stays at a content 30-60 at most times, and my wireless connection is at the maximum five bars. I recently installed a Linksys Wireless-G PCI Adapter Card in my PC, which is getting a clear signal from my other computer. Other internet activities such as web browsing function very well, the only issue being that online game skipping. Single player games work well, so I'm almost certain it's an issue with my connection. My specs are as follows:

Windows 7 64 bit Operating System
ATI Radeon 5770 Graphics Card
4 GB DDR3 RAM
ASUS M4A89GTD Pro Motherboard
AMD Phenom II Black Edition Multi-Core Processor
Hitachi SATA Hard Drive 1 TB
Ultra 750 Watt ATX Power Supply
LG Super Multi DVD Drive
Linksys Wireless-G PCI Adapter Card

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I have had my new pc for a few months now and I have noticed within the past couple weeks or so I get these REALLY ANNOYING audio glitches during music playback. Like a 3 second metallic skipping noise every so often.....maybe once a song. At first I thought it was iTunes but the problem also happens when playing music on the emusic website. I tried uninstalling the realtek audio drivers and having windows 7 reinstall them but no luck. any ideas?

Recently, I got a problem out of nowhere. My games stopped playing MP3-based music. Sound effects work, MP3 music doesnt (think of games like the Elder Scrolls series, and Gamemaker games). Oddly, the MP3's play fine in Windows Media Player or any other audio player. I have been sorting this out and tried various things.

I have tried:
- Reinstalling and updating audio drivers
- Reinstalling and trying various versions of DirectX 9
- Reinstalling the games which had problems
- Restarting (obviously)

I am not going to do a fresh install of Windows XP, it's not a good solution because I DO mind losing my files and settings.

UPDATE: It's not DirectX, I tried various versions. It's not a codec or driver, I updated all to the max. And in Vista, all sound works fine, so it's not hardware-related.

Hey all,

Recently bought Assassin's Creed (awesome game) from Steam, and ran into some issues.

The game itself is awesome, Ubisoft is not. I can no longer hear voices in cutscenes, and have searched the internet and found no fix.

Anyways, this whole ordeal has made me think about getting a separate sound card from my RealTek built-in audio.
Mostly because of Realteks terrible support, but also because I have heard that I should get better sound quality from it.

The issue is that I have no idea what to look for in a sound card, don't know any good brands (except that I don't like Creative), and don't want to spend much (broke college student )

Any thoughts?

A:Sound Cards and Music/Game settings

This is a complete stab in the dark, from a non-expert.... but maybe worth a try, as it wouldn't cost anything to try, I don't think. My computer has the Realtek hardware that you see in my system specs, but my uncle , who built the machine, never put the Realtek drivers on it.....he said it is running the built-in Windows sound driver.

Maybe it's worth trying that with the game before you buy a sound card?

A:Is there a good method for controlling music in-game?

When you play a game it usually have it's own set of controls for sound and simply take over from windows controls and the keyboard.
As far as discrete sound cards go, some are better and some even worse than built in CODEC chips. It would have to be much better (and expensive) card to have noticeably better sound than modern on-board chips.
P.S. Antivirus is not "for pussies" any more than helmet when driving motorcycle or spare parachute, it's for smart people.

Zog, I know nothing about Windows 7. What I do know is that sometimes computer security programs can cause weird and wacky issues. With that in mind I'll throw this out for you to consider:

Your laptop is new. Did it come with security software? If so, did you install it or have you installed a different program?
What firewall/antivirus are you using? You might want to experiment with turning an installed firewall (turn on the one included with Windows first) to see what will happen.
This is a total shot in the dark, but sometimes shots in the dark hit the target.
If it works, great. If not, someone with a knowledge of your OS may have some suggestions for you.

I run Windows XP with P4 2.0 GHz and 256 of RAM, but when ever i play games online for a short time, my computer freezes. Also, when i play songs for say an hour or even less, the computer freezes. I don't know what is the problem. This happens at least twince in a day.

The other disgusting problem is that, at times, the computer goes off unceremonously whiles working. This also happens at least once in a day.

Buddies, i really need help to solve this problem.

A:My Computer Freezes when i play game online or play music

Sounds like a build up of heat, the most common cause of 'freezing' try running with the case side off and see if there is improvement, if there is you need to add more cooling, making sure your current fans are working properly and are clear of fluff and muck can improve cooling performance dramatically especially the CPU fan and heatsink.

The Sonos Music System can stream music from the internet to ever room in your house wirelessly. To do this one of its components is connected to a router using ethernet cable. However I want to stream music from my external Hard drive via my Thomson TG782T Router to the Sonos Music System.
My Question is: Do I just connect the external Hard drive to the USB port of the Thomson TG782T Router or is it more complicated.
In the absence of detailed instruction (Thomson TG782T Router Manual) i need advise on how to go about it (i.e. test steaming music from this Ext Hard Drive via the router to a PC), prior to purchasing the Sonos Music System.

Thanks is advance.

Normally, you would just drag them (copy, not move) with the mouse--from the external drive to F:Music and Videos. Can't you do that? But I may be misunderstanding you.

However:

First I would decide how many partitions you ultimately want to end up with on your internal drive.

You need the one named system

You need C

You don't need the others.

Plan 1: put all of your personal files on C and subdivide C with a folder structure: Music, Pictures, Video, Work, whatever suits you. 2 total partitions.

Plan 2: put only Windows and programs on C, and put all data on D. Subdivide D with a similar folder structure. 3 total partitions.

Plan 3: Put Windows on C. Use several different data partitions D, E, F, and so on. One for each data type (music, video, pictures, etc). 4 or more total partitions.

I would lean toward plan 2. You seem to have chosen plan 3.

There are advantages and disadvantages to each of those 3 plans. Plan 3 works, but having a bunch of partitions can be wasteful because you can never anticipate the proper size and growth rate of the data type on a partition.

Your pictures partition is already 80% full.

If you know for sure that you want to stay with those particular partitions, you should be able to use that tool to resize them.

Or you could delete all but system and C, then shrink C to maybe 80, then make new D, E, F, etc.

So you have a lot of control.

If you have everything backed up to the external, I would disconnect it temporarily. That way you can't make an error and foul that drive up accidentally with the tool.

You had best confirm what is on H:backups.

What is supposedly on E:C&E Conn and why that peculiar name?

Report back with your ideas and results of moving those files with a mouse.

I apologize if this has already been addressed. I honestly don't know what I'm doing. My Vista's not playing any of the music files on my computer or my iPod on any music player I use (iTunes, WinAmp, the Rhapsody that came with it), though it plays anything else that's online. Other sounds on the computer are also playing (MSN, AIM, system sounds). What it does exactly is, upon clicking any song in the media library, it shows intention to play it but then stays at 0:00, while recognizing the length of song, name of artist, etc. Did I miss something?

Not being that experienced, I'm a little confused w/ the way the Library sorts CDs into genres vs the way I could sort the Music Folders. They don't seem to relate. For example, the Library lists an album under "Rock" that I would like to move to another genre but I cannot figure a way to do this. On the other hand, I know I could play around w/ the folders so that this particular CD is in the right place. However, I'm not sure that if I take the time to organize my Music folders whether this will have any impact on how the Library sorts them.
If you can shed some light on this I'd sure appreciate it.
Thanks, Nick.
 

A:Solved: Windows media music library vs music folders

Mp3 music files have tags that are kept inside the files themselves. The most common ones are Artist, Album, Track Title, Track Number, Release Year and Genre. When you put a file into the WMP library, the tags are read and stored, along with the file location.

So the tag data is what shows up in the WMP library and you can sort on various fields depending on which version you have. But the files can be put anywhere and named anyway you like. Most people use a certain naming convention like Artist-TrackNumber-Title.

If you want to sort the folders by genre you could do that, but you'll have to do it manually. You can do some manipulating of folders and filenames with tag editors. If you want to give that a try get Mp3Tag.

Also, is there ANYwhere that I can just download a song without taking out a bank loan or giving them my firstborn? I went to Yahoo radio, too, and went through the sign-in procedure and then it wouldn't complete. The button just did nothing. I don't plan to do a lot of downloading music.

Are you close to a radio station's transmitter site and antenna? That sounds like "RFI" (Radio Frequency Interference" getting into your speaker system.

When you get it, unplug the speakers from the PC but leave them powered on and the volume up and see if you still get it. If you do it's RFI and the speaker system is picking it up or it's coming through the AC power line to the speakers. If this just started I would suspect either a bad cable ground or just a dirty plug connection somewhere in the system.

Hi there
Goede Morgen !!

Remember that W8 is still technically in BETA so there is more to come out.
Since multi-media and connectivity is very important this I'm sure will be fixed in the final builds of W8.

I shouldn't base your purchasing requirements against what's in a BETA build of an OS. -- Wait till the Final before making that decision -- and meantime use something like Winamp or plenty of other free music playing apps most of which can also stream to and from smart phones etc.

Cheers (Tot Ziens)

A:Help With Oblivion on XP

Did you make any changes to the system between when it worked and when it didn't?

I'm thinking a driver update or patch might be the cause.

The best solution: probably to update the graphics driver and patch the game. Check the Oblivion website and Nvidia, I assume for the graphics driver. If that doesn't work you'll need to roll back the drivers to the point before you installed whatever caused the error.

That as I understand it, that error message isn't something easy to fix. Some element of code did something it shouldn't have and Windows protected itself.

A:Help with Oblivion please

hmm, a couple things to try and a couple questions.
1, do you have any mods, official or unofficial, installed (especially ones that play with graphics)?
2, when you reinstalled oblivion did you do a full uninstall then delete all the remaining files just to be sure? (particularly the ini files)
3, do you have the latest patchs?
4, can you think of anything driver related that you've installed between it working and it not working? btw, a restore point won't neccesarily help if you have a driver file corrupted. its not replacing all the files with old versions, just doing some registry tinkering.

try the oblivion unofficial patch, it fixes ALOT of bugs, whether this is one of them i dunno, but its worth a try.
link: http://www.tesnexus.com/downloads/file.php?id=5296
try reinstalling directx (thats directx related error i think), also try several video card drivers, maybe the current version you have doesnt like oblivion.

what woud you consider the minimum playable or good playabl FPS in Oblivion 4? it seems on charts that whenever you go outside it drops significantly!
My setup is AMD 64 X2 4200+, 1Gig Patriot memory, and a eVGA 7800gt 475core 1100mem which i can overclock a little.

I was wondering how playable and smooth the gameplay would be at lower fps.

Sorry I have to come here with this but Bethesda has banned me (which makes configuring the Morrowing Graphics Extender on my new system next to impossible...)

To get it out of the way, specs:

Athlon X2 64 6000+ 3.2ghz dual-core
GeForce GTX 285 1gb
4gb DDR2
Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Obviously strong enough, and I've run it on lesser systems.

My problem is that I can't run it fullscreen. It crashes before the Bethesda logo even pops up. Windowed I can run it just fine. That makes compatibility and administrator privileges not the issue, tho I've tried them all. I've also disabled visual styles during gameplay and that makes no difference. Plz give me an option I haven't tried.

Whenever I try to load Oblivion, it crashes to my desktop just after it goes through the intro movies.

I've tried changing the compatibility mode to XP, making myself an administrator, installing the latest drivers for my graphics card, and installing the newest patch for Oblivion.
Specs:
OS -- Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium 64bit
Processor -- Intel Core 2 Quad Q6700 2.66GHz, 1066FSB
RAM -- 4GB
Graphics Card -- SLI Dual GeForce 8500GT 512Mb PCI Express 16X

I can not start up the game it says error report. My comp specs are enough the run the game except for the fact that I don't have an audio card and my video card is a ATI radeon VE DDR, I have another video card that will work with this game that I could install, but if I don't have to I would rather not. So if anyone knows if this video card works please let me know, and also I run the diagnostics that is in the tech support page and it says no problems even with my lack of audio card so can anyone tell me if I need to put in a audio card for sure? (Yeah it was a handed down comp and I didn't realize there was no audio card.)
