Default Crackling sound issue

I'm a big fan of WW, but I'm having a small but irritating problem with it on my laptop. The sound has this crackling sound that repeats rhythmically whenever any sound is playing. I never heard that noise on my desktop.

In addition, there's a weird low rumbling noise in the galaxy view window that I doubt is supposed to be ambient ship noise. I haven't found it on any sound files anyway.

My laptop is a dual core dell latitude with a sigmatel integrated sound card. Here's hoping someone has a solution!

There's an ambient bridge noise that plays on the star map. It's in the music folder rather than ambient, because it's handled like background music.

Hard to say what the crackling sound is, but some people have got better sound quality using the DirectSound3D driver. Here's how to do it (in v1.21):

1. Right-click on the Weird Worlds shortcut and go to the properties.
2. Go to the "shortcut" tab and find the "target" field.
3. Add the following to the end of the target line: -audiodriver DirectSound3D

(So it should be like this: Weird Worlds/weird.exe -audiodriver DirectSound3D )
