Xtreme Gamer here, adding my support to this topic

I have my X-fi worked as described in this thread , both input and out put


That's really interesting. I've only been at the hackintosh thing for 3 days and it looks like my x-fi Extreme Gamer card is going to be the final hurdle.

I really like this card, for years I didn't buy a creative after experiencing the SBlive value and seeing their drivers and support were abysmal for the last few years. Then I got Win 7 and saw that my local store had Refurbished Gamer cards for $40.

Was completely blown away. Latest drivers are great and much better than the internal ALC8xxx on my Mobo.

Just hope someone with the skills will give these cards some love :rolleyes:

mmm, looks pretty promising. I've got an x-fi extreme gamer as well and I'd love to be able to have some type of analogue output for it.
I'd be keen to have a go at writing some support for it, but I've never done any of that type of thing before.

How do you get this card working with the VoodooHDA kext that was mentioned? I downloaded it and added it to my system but I still have nothing. Is there anything I need to add to my com.apple.boot.plist? I don't need anything fancy like surround sound or input or anything.

Thanks

You can't. Only PCI-Express based X-Fi's are working. The ExtremeMusic is PCI.

I have the USB version, and it works. I believe I'm using AppleHDA, but it's not in my /Extra/Extensions.
AppleUSBAudio does load for it. It's recognized in System Preferences -> Sound. I can select it for output.

com.apple.driver.AppleHDA (1.6.8a3) <76 75 67 5 4 3 1>
com.apple.driver.AppleUSBAudio (2.6.8fc1) <75 40 5 4 3>
