No sound + Pawns [excluding your player] don't move
OS: Windows Vista
Video: e-Geforce 8600 GTS
Mem: 1.512 gigs
CPU: Pentium 4 3.0 GHz
First of all, I'm amazed I can run this at my highest resolution possible on my monitor [1280x1024] but I'm having a few issues, one that stops me from even playing the game.
First, the only sound played is durring the intro screen, and the part where Jack, your main character, is on the plane. After that, completely mute. No music or sound effects, nada.
Then when I enter the second part of the demo, where a splicer is suposed to kill this guy with you standing in the sub, the pawns don't move.
Both of the pawns, splicer and the guy are standing completely still next to eachother but I can still look around and all the lights etc are flickering so I know the game didn't freeze, just the pawns.
You gave us everything BUT your sound card name! LOL!!!
Give us your sound card name please!
How do I find out what my sound card [driver] is?
For starters, your CPU is on the low end of the requirements and P4s are not known for their gamimg capabilties. Beyond that, the current drivers seem to suck ass for 8-series cards in Bioshock. Wait for the newer drivers. If there is an option for EAX, make sure its off. Make sure you have the latest drivers for your audio device.
Right click my computer
Click hardware tab
Find sound,speech blah blah...
post back here!
Ok I'm confused. How come my computer plays the audio for the title screen part and the airplane part but nothign after? And how come the pawns froze durring the second part of the demo?
Under sound, video and game controller, it displays "High Definition Audio device" with an audio icon to the left. It's by Microsoft.
Sorry dude...I don't know what to do....
SigmaTel Audio is my audio driver apparently.
Trying restarting your computer and looking for the lastest sound drivers.

Dell huh? Great...Some else might have to take over for me. I don't know which sigmatel chip was used in the MBs for the 9100s.
I have the same problem and my rig is pretty beefy. Also, the demo gets stuck after you enter rapture. The splicer and dude just stand there and don't do anything.
I will re-download later once the official demo is out.
