Sound bug, current status?


I just played a game on ladder where I had that sound problem, where something happens shortly after game start and you lose sounds for some of the game events.

I think this is an old problem, right, and there were some things to try as workarounds?
(I seem to remember changing the frequency for a sound device to 22000, or something like that, at one point in the past.)

In any case this is something I haven't seen in a while.
I also didn't see any recent forum posts on this.

What is the current state of the art with respect to this bug, likely causes, and known workarounds?


That workaround you mentioned is actually for people whose game crashes because of incorrect sound settings/audio drivers/specific hardware/powers beyond, however, you can definitely try them to see if it helps. Please see the pinned thread in the FAQ section.

I consider myself blessed as I never experienced these issues but have played with at least a few players who encountered the bug you mentioned.


You can try rename folder with sounds to something else



The solution that worked for me was to disable sound in BIOS, reboot, restart, enable sound in BIOS and restart again. Quicker than reinstalling sound drivers...
