Sin Update 1.01 Information 11.21.98

  1. Make sure that you have both volumes of the Sin101 update in the same folder. The files are listed as "Sin_arj" and "Sin_arj.e01."
  2. Double-click on the "Sin_arj" application. A DOS box will pop up and it will ask you if you want to continue with the extraction. Type "y" and then press return. This will happen again when it needs to continue to the second volume of the archive.
  3. Both files will extract to the Sin 101 update. Follow the directions for single file downloads to continue with patching your copy of Sin.
  4. Sin 101 update rewrites your autoexec.cfg and your default.cfg. If you have changed these in any way, you may want to back them up in a different location, as they will be updated to the patch version.
  5. Double click the patch and it will extract itself into the default sin directory. (c:\program files\sin) 2. Make sure that this is the folder that you are using, if not then change it to the appropriate folder.
  6. RTPatch will now run by itself in a DOS box. Make sure that all files extract properly.

This update has now successfully updated your version of Sin. The multiple file volumes (Sin_arj and Sin_arj.e01), Sin101.exe can be deleted to save disk space. Additionally the files "patch.rtp" "patchsin.bat" and "patchdos.exe" extracted to your Sin directory can also be deleted to save disk space.

  2. Ensoniq AudioPCI / SoundBlaster 64 PCI / SoundBlaster 128 PCI and other 100% SoundBlaster compatible sound cards. Make sure you have installed the very latest drivers for your specific sound card. Please consult the hardware manufacturer for updated drivers.

    If you are experiencing stuttering, choppy audio or no audio, try the following.

    Press the ESC key and enter the CONTROLS menu, select AUDIO OPTIONS and press ENTER. In the AUDIO OPTIONS menu set the "Sound Quality" to LOW, set the "Sound Compatibility" to MAX COMPATIBILITY and set the "Enable 3D Sound Hardware" to NO. (If you do not have an "A3D" compatible sound card, it is recommended that you set the "Enable 3D Sound Hardware" to NO.) Press the tilde key ( ~ ) or choose VIDEO CONTROLS from the CONTROLS menu, select "Bring up the console interface" and press ENTER Then type "snd_restart" and press enter. This will restart the sound engine with the new sound setting. These setting will be saved when you properly exit the game.

    Press the tilde key ( ~ ) or choose VIDEO CONTROLS from the CONTROLS menu, select "Bring up the console interface" and press ENTER. At the console enter "s_mixahead 0.3" (without the quotation marks" and press ENTER. Then type "snd_restart" and press ENTER. This will restart the sound engine with the new sound setting. These setting will be saved when you properly exit the game.

    Also, if you have a Ensoniq AudioPCI, SoundBlaster 64 PCI or SoundBlaster 128 PCI and the above has not helped, try the following:

    Go to the Windows 9x Control Panel and select Multimedia. In the Audio Properties page, select ADVANCED PROPERTIES. Then select the PERFORMACE tab. Set Hardware Acceleration slider to the 2nd notch and then select apply. This should clear up any sound problems you may encounter in the game.
  3. Hi-Val 40X40 CD-ROM (with Zen Research TrueX technology) If you are having trouble installing Sin and have this CD-ROM drive, please contact the hardware manufacturer for information on a firmware update.
