Ok, I've pretty much given up on making it work with ALSA and I'm 
considering getting rid of ALSA for OSS just for this game.  It sucks 
because so much depends on ALSA.  I have two questions I hope someone on 
this list can answer:

Has anyone confirmed that the voice chat feature works with OSS?  I'd 
hate to go thru the trouble just to find out it doesn't work anyway.

Does anyone have experience with changing from ALSA to OSS "on the fly"? 
  I mean using a bash script to shut down ALSA, remove the ALSA modules, 
load the OSS driver etc.  And of course a script to go back to ALSA, 
maybe it could setup as a ut2004 start script like in init.d
