I just downloaded avernum 3 (windows version) and I get an error popup straight away. It says "DirectSound error: Failed to create sound buffer". HELP! Every time I close the dialog box, it pops up again!

I'll send this to Tech Support...

You know, Scorp, there's a good reason you're not a moderator any more.

Have you installed Avernum 3? Or did you just download it? I'll assume you've attempted to install it. What version of Windows do you have?

It's probably a driver problem, although I don't know how to remedy it. Shut down all non-essential programs and try running it again. Otherwise I'm not sure.

Check out a great source for information on Avernum 2, Nethergate, and Subterra: Zeviz's page.
Finally, there's my Geneforge FAQ, Geneforge 2 FAQ, and

Try installing the latest version of DirectX from Microsoft:
