I'm running FA on a Apple Mac Mini 2018. I have Windows 10 installed on a Bootcamp partition. I installed FA through Steam.
Unfortunately the game is not working properly: When I run it without the FAF client, the Logo and the intro cutscene don't play any sound. I tried to play the first campaign mission, all sounds work except the voices from the story line. Fletcher, Graham, all silent. Music and game sounds work.
When I quit the game, a grey rectangle stays lingering on the upper left corner of the screen and the application keeps running and my computers fans start to get really loud. I need to use the task manger to end the application.
When I use the FAF client to launch the game, I get the same sound issue on the Black Day mission (characters not talking). Tried the first two AEON missions and all sounds seem to play, including the characters talking.
When I quit the game after launching through the FAF client, I still get a crash report. Here's what the FAF client tells me:
java.lang.RuntimeException: Forged Alliance Crashed with exit code 1. See game_14330531.log for more information
I also get random ingame crashes, The Black Day mission crashes anywhere, had it crash during the intro but also had it running till after the first map expansion. Sooner or later it crashes though.
I tried running the SC app as administrator and in compatibility mode WIndows 7 and Vista, no change, tried deleting the game.prefs file, no change, deleted the game, redownloaded through Steam, same problems, reinstalles FAF too, same problems.
I'm not very adept at dealing with Windows computers so I might be missing something.
If anyone could give me some tipps how to possibly solve this and play FAF without crashes, I would appreciate it.
Please let me know if there's any info I can provide.
