Sorry still don't understand what this does. Needs a before and after image to make it clear.
If you have cd with key you can try adding that to steam
My solutions to that exact problem are in that thread. Either disable on board audio in bios then restart and re-enable it, or reinstall drivers. The first solution is quickest if you can find the right bios screen
I think they come with age and the inability to see tiny monochromatic icons without developing eye strain
The alternative to allow one to quickly try out ladder maps against an AI is to have a button in the lobby of a custom game to quickly choose randomly from amongst the ladder pool. Still wouldn't set up AI for you though.
Recently I lost a lot of sounds after a Windows update (in particular mantis firing). This has happened previously for me. In the past I found that disconnecting and reconnecting my headphones resolved the issue, but not in this case. I had to totally reinstall motherboard manufacturer recommended audio drivers (from ASUS). Unfortunately they come bundled with Sonic Studio and Sound Radar which even when all audio enhancements are turned off and sound is set to stereo still results in crashes with XACT sound errors in the log. I resolved this by completely uninstalling Sonic Studio and sound radar crap. Thought I'd post in case anyone else has similar issues.
I think that if you did this you'd still want Aeon T3 arty to be in some way better as you would be indirectly nerfing them in relation to the other factions who don't presently have this ability.
Also is any one making T1 spam to confuse targeting of snipers on any of the replays?
Debates are only any good at determining who is good at debating which is fine if that is what the job is. Seem like massive overkill for a faf 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)
Buff dps of T1 subs so they are worth building to counter mass frigates
On a related note if I mod any of my mods is changing the uuid sufficient to avoid it getting overwritten by a mod update?
Make sure audio enhancements are disabled and check if you have any 3rd party software installed which might use advanced audio features. If so either disable these or uninstall the software. If you are using earphones try without them. Try launching with no sound (see command line switches https://wiki.faforever.com/index.php?title=Command_Line_Switches) (this is just to confirm sound is the issue not a long term solution)

It's not politics, it's all the others things he mentioned

I've had this in 1 v 1. Thought it was deliberate to try and get an unrated game...
Back it up before you start messing with it...
Can this be used to automatically distribute malware?
Do you have any software installed that manages sounds or are you using headphones with there own audio control software? Either of these may be trying to use surround sound functionality.
