better-than-stereo audio
#1
Owning more than 2 speakers, I am very confused on making those work, if it's possible at all.

On the Windows vista side I've got a 4.1 setup (4.0 wire-level, 2 stereo jacks, set as "quadraphonic" sound).

Then there's plugins and there's games:

- ZeroSPU2 seems to have no relevant settings.
- SPU2GHz output settings: "dx" seems to output something though very quiet and no idea if it's what's supposed to be in the rear speakers, recommended "xaudio2" outputs nothing on those.

Now, inside the game's options(atelier iris eternal mana, thought it could be any):
- Stereo
- Surround
- Digital stereo 5.1

Between surround and digital stereo no idea what to choose. For the number of speakers Surround seems more apropiate, but I really don't know.

In short, how is >2 speakers handled in pcsx2 and therefore how should someone set all of this?

You probably can't.The SPU2 plugin must support surround / 5.1 output for the game settings to do anything.
The only plugin that currently supports 5.1 output is SPU2Ghz plugin but not the playground version,the older one found here: http://forums.pcsx2.net/thread-2352.html
You can switch to the 5.1 output module,but it is in very early beta stages (as the whole plugin is too) so it will barely work!

Ok, it's definitively better than not knowing Smile
