ok I tried using the search in the forums but it's not working correctly. anyways I'm not getting the game at all no matter what I do. All the in game settings are good it would seem and sound works of everything else but this game.
I am having the same problem. Running XPx64 with Realtek HD Audio. Game seems to recognize the sound device, but no game sounds whatsoever.
Both my friend and I have the same issue, with the same setup quoted above. We got on a conference call last night with a friend of ours who is much more PC tach saavy than we are to help us figure out the problem. After many hours of driver deletions, cleanups, reinstalls, updates to both the ATI 4800 gx card and the Realtek audio (and even motherboard), we still have no sound. We both play other online games, and have not had any sound issues (we re-checked the other games after the above actions and those games still play with no sound issues). I submitted bug reports in game in STO for this sound issue but have not received any reponses. The gx look fine on our PCs, however there is no sound in any part of the game, nor when we load in the game. We would love to find a fix for this. Thanks
