Sound cutting out in large battles
Closed, ResolvedPublic


As soon as I entered the Infantry showcase, My sound started cutting out when me and my squad mates started firing out weapons. I'm not sure whether it was a problem with my headset in particular, But when I turned my sound down It helped a bit to stop the problem.

I was using 32 bit sound and when i switched it to 128 bit it somewhat stopped it. After a while the problem stopped occurring.

AFAIK that soundsetting is not bits, its the max amount of sounds that may play at the same time.

Yeah, it says channels, not bits, IIRC.

I was unable to reproduce this bug.

Please let us know if you are still able to reproduce this issue in latest Developement build. Thank you.

I have the same issue going on. I am running into my audio cutting out in game. First it intermittently goes in and out and then sooner or later it goes out completely.

All other windows sounds are working and all other games work with sound just fine so it is part of the game.

Windows 8 Professional x64
ASRock Extreme3 Gen3 w/ Realtek HD Audio
Skullcandy PLYR1 wireless headset
2x AMD Radeon HD 6950

These are the only four things that can cause audio malfunctions... and since I have all other audio and updated drivers it's neither of these...

I wasn't having this issue until I decided to try out the amount of in game sounds at maximum (It didn't happen right off the from the start of changing these settings though). I turned it back since, but that's the only thing I have done differently then when I first started. It also does happen with a lot of gun shots going on.. a lot of people are around me but the most they are doing is talking over VON.

I found that going into the lobby and rejoining brings back the sound... please fix this issue!
