Sound plays when the launcher loads. Annnnnd that is it. Deadly quiet the rest of the time.
This has happened multiple times in the past and just starts working again, also randomly. Worked this AM, does not work now. Worked for about a week this time. Uninstall and reinstall does not impact it. Changing the sound to default setting in the game does not fix it. Dictating headset in the audio setup in the OS does not fix it. Reboots, etc have no impact as well. Have never found any settings directly in Steam that might impact this but I might have missed something.
Alienware 17R4 - using built-in speakers or Seinheiser wired headset, same results.
Other Steam games play sound, no issues.
Other non-Steam games play sound, no issues.
Things like Netflix play sound, no issues.
Realtek Audio 126.96.36.19951
OS: Win 10 Pro (same issue when it was still Win 10 Home)
Anyone else have this issue? Any ideas on what to do for a more perm fix?
I have been thinking about switching back to the Funcom account and not use Steam at all for this game. I have not done the second transfer yet, will going back over to a Funcom account 1) solve the sound issue or 2) mess up anything vanity wise?
