Heya folks, Julius Borislov asked me to post my thread here instead of the steam community due to the large playerbase!
In BG:EE I do have lots of strange sound behaviour and/or problems. For instance, almost all character sounds seem to disappear after the first party companion says something. Although I checked the "always" button at select- and command sounds, I will only get a single spoken line of any companion, after that no battle cries, no "i like your reputation", no casts, no selection audio. But I do know that there should be audio because the subtitles say so. Also all the soundfiles of Npcs (greetings and so on) are gone. The whole world feels just very very silent. Only after a complete exit and restart of the game, another single audio will be played.
Another problem is that all the UI sounds are gone. In BG you used to have some 'scroll opening' at mage spells e.g., or the sound of a picked up and/or dropped sword if you did something in your inventory. Everything is just gone, adding to the feeling of a very silent world.
Perhaps the strangest of all my problems is that there is no freakin' way to use my speaker for BG:EE. Despite all settings, even If i fully deactivate my line-in, where the headphones are plugged in, the audio (or whats left of it) will only be played via headphones. It's like there is no digital audio out for BG:EE, but even BG vanilla had no problems at all with it.
I admit my soundcard is a lil' bit older, it's the Soundblaster X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Champion. But hell, she did cost nearly 200€ and is still one of the best soundcards out there. I do run the newest Win10x64 drivers and almost everything else just works fine.
I tried mixing with all the possible settings, I tried to verify my game files, I did google (many problems, few solutions). Is there any chance of fixing these game-destroying audio problems?
As always, thanks in advance!
