Has anyone else experienced an issue with audio suddenly not working in the game? I've put a good amount of time into the game (currently in the command area) without any issues whatsoever. Suddenly a bunch of the audio stops playing including the music. I tried exiting the game and restarting it, I've tried restarting my computer (because why not?), and I've tried screwing around with audio settings... nothing works.

It's a very strange issue, indeed. For instance, I can hear my footsteps and I can hear the attack sound with the plasma rapier but I don't hear the constant buzzing sound of the rapier and I can't hear enemy sounds.

Does anyone know of this issue and is there a way to fix it? I suppose, if all else fails, I can try reinstalling.

Check your sound card drivers. They may or may not need updating. Also, are you playing the game as-is from your account or have you installed some mods that may or may not conflict with each other?
I checked my drivers and they are indeed up to date and I am playing the game as is without installing any additional mods.

I'm not really sure what could have caused this issue but re-installing the game worked fine, just hoping it doesn't happen again. It took a good 8 hours of gameplay before this issue crept up and I haven't experienced any other issues, audio related or otherwise. Even mousing over the buttons in the menu wasn't producing sounds... very odd.

Alas, I appreciate the response.
any chance you have messed with the positional sound bias slider? that is the only thing that could have caused this (that has been reset by the game reinstall).

I've got the same problem... and, yeah, I did "mess" with the slider (the music was too loud for me and I chose the wrong slider...).

Just to be clear, if we just touch it, we've got to reinstall the game ?! That doesn't seem logical...
no, just return it to the the middle position, and it should be ok (reinstalling the game does that as well).

Nice!!!
Thanks! I really don't understand how that slider works, but I don't care... I just wanted to hear the "big reveal" (that is really not a surprise,but I don't want to spoil it anyway).
it changes the balance of audio effects when hw acceleration is enabled (think left/middle/right on your favorite audio player).

That's a good question... I don't believe I did. That being the case, if this issue comes up again then I'm going to check that out. I haven't had any further issues, so that would be a bummer if it did.

I was actually just walking around in the middle of a game in the command area when it happened, so not sure how that would've happened. I appreciate the suggestion... I would certainly not enjoying re-installing were this to happen again.
