For me it was some msi bloatware called nahimic that installed itself that messed with my projectile sounds. Removing it from startup and deactivating the virtual sound device in device manager fixed it. Maybe thats a new thing since it just happend to me last week after running the pc for 1.5 years
It's very common for unspecified Windows updates to reset audio hardware and other settings. Recently (last 6 months or so) they've introduced a new option for psuedo-surround sound which is playing havoc with Forged Alliance. Best advice - goto your hardware manager and remove (disable) all the extra sound devices you don't use. Remember, many monitors have built-in audio capability these days, and as was pointed out above, a lot of headsets use 'virtual surround' drivers that have a lot to do with frequent crashes.
I have the same problem, the sounds disappear. I set the settings correctly, completely reinstalled faf, but still no sounds(
It's not FAF. You need to reinstall audio drivers
I also got this error out of the blue and a simple uninstall of Nahimic seems to have fixed it. The internet tells me I might need to do it again if some random update reinstalls it on me, but just thought I'd bump this thread for the next MSI motherboard user.
@tatsu said I can't hear some of the Audio or other Sound issue. What should I do?
get a windows pc
For missing sounds you can also try disabling and then reenabling audio in your bios (restart between). This worked for me (and it's quicker than reinstalling drivers)
is there a way too save the keybindings ? i realy dont want too set that up again, only too realise i forgot one or two of them in the middle of a game.
keybindings are safed in your game.prefs file. In general, its a good idea to have a backup of that file, especially if you need to delete it. Than you can copy paste your keybindings from the old to the new game.pres file.
