it doesnt run as smooth as it's supposed too,and it sometimes exits out un knownly.
my computer is fast enough to run it,,so i know that's not the problem.

sonic adventure dx has an annoying problem thats got probably to do with dsound acceleration. Sometimes I got it to run smoothly, but most of the time it does what you're saying. Try playing with your Dsound settings.

Yeah.. every incarnation of Sonic Adventure DX is a poorly coded piece of crap, sadly.

you'd be better off with sonic heroes, as that game doesn't suffer from this problem and is actually quite an awesome port;
As for sonic dx, I think on PC I got it running right once, but it seems to be kinda random, but based on directsound issues...

try changing the slider in the pic... set it to basic.

right. try turning vsync of your video card on or off..it might help. also, fiddling with the refresh rates might help a little.

What also helps, is Chankast (DC emulator) + Sonic Adventure; It's smooth at least, allthough it might crash later on in the game, not sure.

nah, sonic dx is really low-spec. It just has a notorious stuttering problem;
I dont know where the vsync for s3 cards are. try the "advanced" button in that window and see if you can find gfx card settings
