Default Windows 8.1 with Vengeance 2000

Seems the Dolby is broke in Windows 8.1 When you enable it the headsets will no function, seem to work fine with it turned off.

8.1's not out yet. Are you using a developer version?

Looks like I was at the enterprise page which says it's coming soon: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windo...1/default.aspx

The preview page does show it: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-8/preview

Well, Corsair hasn't really got their hands on developing stuff for Windows 8.1 so hold your horses.. it's different codes :D... and might be better for the NEXT Driver they are going to put out. :)

Sure yes Windows 8.1 is not officially released yet but I upgrades 2 PC's to it with a lot of different multimedia hardware and the only thing not working nicely is the Corsair headset. Same as it was with Windows 8 beta and official release.

For me personally it is time to get something else, more reliable with drivers.

Kind of sad that Corsair has not even bother to acknowledge this yet. BTW headsets using USB from 3 other companies are working fine. As for Corsair not having 8.1 code, horse crap. Microsoft has been handing the dev tools out like candy.

Okay just as an update. I had some friends have issues with 8.1 as well in other software and we found that some of the issues where resolved with a clean install and immediate upgrade to Windows 8.1

I did this today and my other issues all stopped, but the Vengeance drivers are still not working correctly. I cannot use any source other than 2.0 and it does not give me 7.1 sound no matter what settings I use.

My other USB headsets all are working perfectly.

As Windows 8.1 is not officially released yet, we do not support it at this time.

I'm a software developer myself. I can respect that windows 8.1 is not out yet and you don't support it, however, because of my enthusiasm I am running it and I am experiencing the same problem as everyone else running it in this forum. No surround sound. I'll bet you there is some sort of small change to the API in 8.1 and that it isn't a lot of work to support it, since you already support 8 (that's the bigger hurdle and you've surmounted it). The problem is that you don't have a beta or alpha access to your drivers so that users that are on the edge of releases (as many gamers are) can access drivers that might be buggy or not fully QA'ed but we understand as such and we install them under that pretense.

Now here's the kicker: if you haven't already started developing a driver for Windows 8.1, then there's a real problem. It's a free update to all windows 8 users and it's coming out VERY SOON. Like September soon; as in 1 (one)(uno) month! If you aren't already pretty solid with a Windows 8.1 driver for the Vengeance headsets, then you've clearly missed the boat and *are not* supporting your hardcore gaming user base (you know, all the people that bought your headsets...100% of them).

Bottom line: get a beta program in place so we can have access to beta drivers before release and if you aren't developing a windows 8.1 driver right now, SHAME ON YOU and you need to get your **** together and GO. If you need a team lead who can get your development team on track and bring them in to the year 2013, contact me.

Anything ybout this? I bought and installed win 8.1 mostly to play BF4, and this headset refuses stubbornly to play 7.1 sound.
Will driver be prepared?

Default Will there be support for windows 8.1?

When windows 8.1 preview was released I installed it and found that my headsets software did not work in windows 8.1 seems to work fine in windows 8 so I am wondering is there an update in the works thats coming soon?

Im in no real rush to move to 8.1 but as a gamer there are some rumours that some of the new games will perform better under 8.1 and if thats the case I would like to move to it.

So I would like to know will the drivers be there to allow me to use my vengeance 2000 should I choose to do that?

There are currently no drivers for the V2000 compatible with Windows 8.1 yet.

Hopefully we will see it a couple of months after the release of 8.1.

Thanks for your reply Toasted its appreciated however I already knew there wasn't any drivers at the moment for 8.1.

My question was will there be preferably in time for windows 8.1 release. 8.1 has been in preview for a little while now and with its release on the horizon in around a weeks time it would be nice to get some official word on when I will be able to use my headset with windows 8.1
