Shyvega, what OS are you running? Vista has problems running EAX code, if you have a SoundBlaster EAX capable card, you will have to apply a Creative Labs software patch to fully enable your sound if you are running Vista.

If you are running XP, what sound card are you using?

Have you tried reinstalling your X-fi drivers or updating them? Because Warhammer is a newer game, it uses newer code.

If you go look on the Warhammer forum, it seems there is a lot of people in your case. Seems to be hardware problem with x-Fi and warhammer ... there is no solution yet found on the forum there.

Maybe wait for a future patch.  Warhammer just came out, as a mmo, there is always a huge ammount of bug ( just think of AOC or WOW first 2 weeks )

One thing you can try to do is go into the DX settings for the Sound and try moving the slider to the left one step at a time.

Or if you have on board sound, you can try enabling it, install the drivers, and run WO with the on board vs the X-Fi if the sound cutting out is that bad. I have done this with a couple of games, the drivers shouldn't interfere with each other as long as you make the appropriate setting changes in your Audio Properties. I also know that this works for the Plantronics USB headsets particularly well, to the point that you can have your game running through your speakers and your mic/TeamSpeak chat running through the headset, and vice versa. I played quite a few games like that until my dog got ahold of my headset.

But the long and the short is keep complaining to Mythic and wait for the eventual patch.
