sorry if this is in the wrong place. i am a noob here in ubuntu forums.
I have installed Red Alert 3 Uprising using wine. It launches perfectly but the sound has this annoying delay and choppiness that you can't understand the dialogue and the sound effects. I have tried using wine1.3 with wine1.3 there is no sound at all. so i downgraded again to wine1.2. i have tried all the audio options in winecfg and found that only alsa and esound works with the same results regardless if full or emulation. now i am stuck at a dead end. also the choppiness in sound causes some lag in the game itself coz when i disable the sound it runs smoothly without any delays. with other games such Warcraft 3, StarCraft 2, CoD4MW and CoD4MW2 i have no problems with the sound. the choppiness only happens with this game. any suggestions? please help.
