Bioshock Audio Problems
I had to use ;AudioDevice=FMODAudio.FMODAudioSubsystem
AudioDevice=D3DDrv.D3DAudioDevice This Fix in my Default.ini folder to even get the game to run, no other fix worked, But now... title screen has audio, opening movie has audio... but the gameplay has no audio at all... I have more then met system requirements, im using windows 7 ultimate, and a creative sound card. WHAT THE ☺☺☺☺? DX
there Stero mixer fix didn't work because my recording devices didn't HAVE a stereo moxer option btw
The only thing that .ini "fix" does is disable audio in-game. Bioshock uses the FMOD audio system for all it's in-game sounds and changing that to a DirectX sound driver just turns off audio. So you'll need to undo that setting.
You have a Creative sound card. Do you have Creative ALchemy installed? If you do try to uninstall that. Also, if you have any audio or video codec packs installed on your machine try to uninstall them. If you have GOM Player installed that is a known conflict, uninstall it.
If you do have audio or video codecs installed and uninstalling them fixes Bioshock then for those an alternative is to use VideoLAN's VLC Player - but only consider switching to that program for your audio/video solution if uninstalling system-wide codecs fixes Bioshock. VLC Player has all the codecs and they are internal to the program so they don't interfere with other programs.
Would the Xvid codec cause this?
uninstalled it and still not fixed, i have no other audio or video codecs, only the creative soundcard software
