They released drivers on October 1st, too, and I downloaded them. I have several gripes with even this new release:
The Creative Audio Console works, but is watered down compared to XP, and barely any support for the “Audio Creation” profile… pretty much have to use canned EAX effects and can’t create your own.
C’mon creative… WTF
What’s even weirder is that the newer drivers have an older revision number:
October 3: SBXF_PCDVT_LB_2_15_003.exe
October 9: SBXF_PCDVT_LB_2_15_002.exe
What’s up with that?
Well, they finally added the Creative Console Launcher back (which is a seperate download). This is the main application that most people used in XP to interface with their X-Fi, and allows for creating new EAX effects in the “Audio Creation” mode, which is the main thing I missed… I now have like 90% of the functionality back… so I’m not so pissed anymore.
