I'm having the Random Rommie Snapping too. Happens ingame, happens when alt+tabbed out of the game, happens when I have the ingame master volume and every other volume slider set to 0, happens when I have the digital processing turned off, happens when I have voice chat turned off. Every single audio option can be turned right off and the snapping won't stop. It's driving me crazy.
I have determined that it is a game bug, because when I alt+tab out and go to my windows volume control (speaker icon in the bottom right corner) and hit mixer it actually shows Star Trek Online and every time the pop happens it flashes on the STO volume meter.
Edit: I just reloaded the game and the snapping stopped until I ran a ground mission. Something in combat (I think it was one of my BO skills) triggered the snapping, but as soon as combat ended one of my BOs pulled out a tribble and the snapping stopped. Can anyone else test this?
Hi, I have crackling noise in every part of the game, seems to come from the rear speakers, maybe the right, but it is so annoying the sound in 5.1, finish put the game in stereo and the crackling is more low but persistent.
Hearingthe "POPS" more. They have been there since release but it snow more noticable.
Sound drops out constantly. Some ambiant sound becomes very loud and the only thing you can hear. Like you wont hear weapons fire but will hear the "wind" noise. Or on new romulas all you can hear are birds chirping. From the way its coming out of the speakers it could be a 5.1 issue as well.
Whether its caused by the lag or causing the lag, it seems to be connected. The laggier the map is the worse the sound becomes.
Only area that I have not had some sort of sound issue is in sector space.
The POPS like I said have ALWAYS been in game. You used to only hear them at ESD relaibly. Ive been posting about that since 2009!!!!!!!!!!!!
And as others have said, if you alt tab now even though you cant hear anything else you will hear the POPS. To me it sounds like a hardware related sound. If I didnt know it was in the game I would think there was a crossed wired or something plugged into the wrong connection on my system. But since I only hear the pops in STO and have for years I know things are fine on my end
