Both were 8.1 with different sub-builds. I noticed a lot of sound artifacts in the x64 version especially when the little yellow triangles used to orient the character appear at the end of an turn of a unit. Sounds like massive stuttering/slowdown in the music.

Update: It isn't a slow down, it's a speed up. When you orient the character's direction after taking their turn (when the four little yellow arrows show up) the music (and probably the game generally) becomes unthrottled for a second. I say this because if I were to tap the Tab key (unthrottle) the music does the exact same thing as when the characters' little yellow arrows show up. Also, this happens a lot less in the x32 version for some reason. In the x64 it's every time, and the x32 it's perhaps 1 in 5 times. Also, the weird rainbow coloration artifact is gone, but the boxing is still present. There are other moments in the game where it will randomly unthrottle for a moment (as can be heard from the music) so I think there might be a call to something that momentarily overrides the throttle? I've tried playing around with the force 60 or less fps and the speed toggle options and neither has any effect on the random unthrottling. Big Grin

Having the same issue with the sound stuttering, I'm using the latest x64 build as of this posting/same OS. Not having any graphical or speed issues whatsoever (the candle flames/spells/rain/etc all render perfectly); it's solely the sound stuttering/crackling when an enemy's turn starts, or when the side-orienting reticule appears over a character's head (and the crackling sound is identical to when you use the Tab key to speed the game up).

Might just be a problem with atrac+ integration; this is getting really close to perfect emulation.
