What approach did you use for the kX project? I’m glad to hear cp no pun intended! The 2shared link has somehow turned into virus clickbait, and I’ve gotten many, many requests over the past few months to repost. It’s really cool to be able to use the card again.

Creative Labs bought all assets, know how and technology of Aureal. I didn’t do that. I had the Mx back in the day. There is a website somewhere on the net, which attempted to modify Aurel drivers for XP to work with hardware acceleration.
