About This File

Enables EAX in Thief I&II and System Shock 2.

With the NewDark patch there's no need to use "OpenAL", It's proprietary since v1.1 and the last release was in 2009.
These files uses OpenAL Soft, a modern, maintained fork of OpenAL.

NewDark versions of Thief, Thief II and System Shock 2 are required for this to work.

Advantage over using OpenAl is:
No need to install, simply copy and paste inte main game folder.
Head Related Transfer Functions (HRTF).
Reverb strenght can be set using alsoft.ini


Tips: Uninstall previous OpenAL software.

Disable any custom "3D-stereo" solutions such as Dolby Virtual Surround and any other globally applied crystalizers or equalisers. Also, you won't need any old emulation software like Alchemy.

OpenAL Soft 1.21.1

Thank you for sharing this file. Judging by your description, this is exactly what I need. Tell me if this version is available on the official website of the manufacturer. I found something on this web link, but I'm not sure if it's an official source. Please check.
