      Hello everyone, I would like to clarify why my editing in the article on sound is constantly canceled?
      https://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Glossary:Sound
       
       
       
       
      Here is the evidence on the pictures below about the difference in sound on the spectrograms.
      As you can probably notice, that on Windows 10 samples are more identical to the original, rather than on Windows 7.
       
      Used materials in this tests


       
      Source sound


      Windows 10 on Realtek


      Windows 10 on Creative G1


      Windows 7 on Realtek


      Windows 7 on Creative G1


       
      The peculiarity of this behavior in terms of sound in Windows 7 was caused by the introduction of DRM at the development stage of Windows Vista, which is also easily confirmed by reading the development literature.
       
      To carry out this test, recording through the line input via the built-in sound card with the help of Audacity was used and then the results were transferred to the schedule through the Spek.
      The conditions were the same (Volume 80% output and input) and the same player Foobar2000 on default settings (no asio/openal and ks with wasapi exclusive for output) was used.
       
      For very talented people, I note that the sound system has remained the same since Windows Vista, but has been significantly reworked: https://www.head-fi.org/threads/windows-10-has-better-sound-quality-than-windows-7-on-my-computer-not-necessarily-yours.789224/
      Especially it is important for the old and not-so games that use DirectSound.
      And for those who like to listen to music, and especially in a high quality, because windose 10 does not force you to use all sorts of workarounds crutches mentioned above.

      Not strictly games-related, but if any newer drivers could help solving some issues.

      Compatibility fixes for issues running SimCity 3000 and SimCity 3000 Unlimited on Windows 8 and later.
       
      NOTE: This fix may cause the game to start in windowed mode the next time it is launched. To fix this delete SC3.cfg in the installation folder or run the game with the -f parameter.
       
      Extract anywhere and run install.bat to apply the fix.
       
      This fix works by applying the following compatibility fixes to SC3.EXE and sc3U.EXE:
      16BitColor (forces 16-bit color depth; allows use of windowed mode with -w parameter)
      8And16BitAggregateBits (fixes user interface frame rate drops)

      This fixes the issue with Wild Metal Country showing a window border when in fullscreen mode on Windows 8 and later.
       
      Extract anywhere and run install.bat to install the fix.
       
      This fix works by applying the ForceSimpleWindow compatibility fix to this game's version of WinEnv.exe.
