I have a G930 Logitech virtual 7.1 headset. Windows recognizes it as a 7.1 system. There is a switch on the headset that downmixes the 7.1 audio to stereo *on the headset*. This means that the game is putting out 7.1 sound. The problem I'm running into is that when the game is outputting 7.1 audio and I downmix to stereo on the headset, any directional sounds are on the right channel.
Now, I know this is not the fault of BI in the slightest, but if an option was added where you could pick between 7.1, 5.1, stereo, etc., this problem that affects what I'd imagine to be a very small set of players would be fixed. I don't know how much effort this would take to implement, but I thought you guys should know.
