Popping Sound on Livonia
New, NormalPublic


After 1-2 minutes on Livonia terrain while I'm flying as Zeus (or using Splendid Camera) the sound starts to do some irritating popping in my left channel. Usually, this happens when I fly through forests and villages and going up and down. But it happens quite a lot when I'm roaming as a unit player.


Operating System
Windows 10 x64
Operating System Version
Version 1809 (OS Build 17763.615)
Steps To Reproduce
  1. Launch game via "Play without mods and optional DLC" or "Play Contact"
  2. Launch Zeus or Splendid Camera
  3. Move Camera around for some time
  4. After 1-2 minutes the sound is making strange crackling
Additional Information

As I go higher there is no wind sound but on any other terrain, there is.
My Windows sound Default Format is 16 bit 44100 Hz. I changed it around but nothing works.
I have prepurchased the expansion on June 26 and when I launched the RC build I did not have this issue.

I also get a popping noise. Only in the left channel. Happens when I'm in the editor after a couple minutes. 100% of the time it will pop when I click out of Arma and back in, and only when Livonia is open in the editor. Sometimes it pops while staying in the editor (on Livonia) whenever I click on something, like change unit faction, or select an object. I never get this noise with any other map open.

Same. Environment sound is buzzing in the left channel. Appeared as if after installing a sound card Creative Sound BlasterX G6.
