ok have tried everything that I can think of ... have sound outside the game ( teamspeak and youtube stuff ) ... but not in game ( even with safemode ) ... settings in the game are set well and should hear something even at 100

Did search via the forums and could find nothing on " no sound " or " no audio " ... did the entire tutorial with no sound and part of leaving starbase

Calling it a night ... any help or ideas are appreciated

Start the Launcher, click options, and in the "Advanced Command Line" box, paste the following...


... accept the changes and try loading the game.

Launch the game and then at character select click on the back button. Click on the options button and select the audio tab.

What is listed under the Output Device Drop Down menu there? And what is currently selected?
