My problem is that the game doesn't display some effects, such as gravity wells, tykens, gravitic rifts from dyson torp etc... I maxed out almost every graphics detail, reseted the HUD, but still, no effect. I have W8.1, and a Radeon HD7000 card with latest drivers. If someone could give a solution I would really appreciate!
new player here and I noticed that the game self-mutes if I tab to another window (browser, skype). Is there any way to change this so the sound continues? I stream when I play and when I tab to skype and the game self-mutes, it also self-mutes on stream so viewers get interrupted audio and its just very inconvenient. I can understand the benefits of the feature but I'm hoping there's a way to toggle this off. I couldn't find anything in-game related to it.
It says to post here, so I'll post here - though I was going to post a new thread - oh well...
So I upgraded to Win 8.1 earlier today and I have noticed the most curious thing...
I've got an ECS A780GM-A Ultra mobo with Realtek ALC888 sound. Before upgrading to Win 8.1, I had my in-game volume set to 20% and it was perfect. After the upgrade, even at 100% it is too quiet. Sound outside of the game is fine...it's just in-game...it's gotten so damn quiet.
Since a couple of days ago, I've been getting these weird cracking sounds in STO. I hear them even when the game is minimized, and only when STO is running. I've messed around and experimented with everything and anything I can think of, options-wise, to no avail.
It has gotten to the point where I'm forced to turn off audio in the game options. Is there any solution to this issue? If I completely re-install the game, will it go away?
I would like to chime in. I too am getting those strange cracking sounds every now and then, even when the game is minimized/tabbed out and thus muted. It really is quite annoying, and after reading a giant - now closed - thread about it, I'm still lacking any sort of explanation or solution for it.
