Hi Frank,
I only have two buzz~es in there and yes I have tried removing them. I run
the patch with -nogui and -nosound because I don't need to send it out the
soundcard anyway, and I run it on a 400 Mhz Celeron machine with Redhat 7.3.
I'll check the Flashserver again. Anyway, thanks for your help.
