Fix for sound on XP

Post by Zorg » Thu Jul 13, 2006 10:39 am

For those who have to disable their sound cards to play on XP (thanks to the original guy who figured that out).

To play with sound...
Disable your sound card.
Start the game,
Load a melee,
Hit escape to bring up the in game options
TURN SOUND OFF IN-GAME.
Quit the game.
Enable your sound card.
Start the game, start trip/melee
Bring up options
Turn sound back on!
IMPORTANT - Turn sound off (in game) before you QUIT (the app or melee) or you'll have to go through that again.

It appears that something in the main menu is broken in a sound related way, as long as you never have sound (music is fine) enabled in the main menu you're fine!

Peace,
Zorg

Or:
1. Start the game and wait for the first menu screen
2. Press ESC
3. Select Audio Control
4. Set sound effects to level 1
5. Enter map
6. Turn the volume back up
Don't forget to turn it down again when you quit the game.

I'm really confused as to why we're reposting information from the FAQ but that's OK...

Normal people disable thier dynamic sound features and are able to play just fine without jumping through hoops...

...but then you'd actually have to read all the posts here to figure that out, wouldn't you?
