XONAR D1 Patch file Version 220.127.116.11 for Windows XP
Patch file for Red Albert 3
-The Red Alert 3 uses a legacy 5.1-channel mask scheme and does not support the new 5.1-channel mask scheme that was defined by Microsoft since Windows Vista and matches Dolby and DTS 5.1 surround sounds, which Xonar drivers followed as a default setting. To solve the compatibility issue with Red Alert 3, the patch file is to change the default channel mask scheme of Xonar drivers to make Red Alert 3 work normally on Xonar audio cards. Xonar drivers actually support both schemes and most games could support the new scheme or either one and have no problems on Xonar.
