Sound isn't working for my Bioshock.
Its just the game. sound on normal PC stuff still works.
Anyone else know about this problem??
feedback appreciated. :)
Please tell us your computers specs. We can't really help you well without them, only guess the reasons :/ First recommendation: try to update your soundcard's / chip's drivers to newer ones. If you have already done that; have you enabled Stereo mixing from the sound options in your system? It's a common solution to no-sound problem in Bioshock :)
EDIT: Found some information from the thread "BioShock Troubleshooting Guide"
Realtek & Windows Vista Troubleshooting
BioShock Knowledge Base Article 632
In some cases you may encounter stuttering sound or no sound at all when playing Bioshock with a combination of Windows Vista and Realtek onboard sound. To ensure the best possible sound performance from your system when playing Bioshock, please follow the steps below:
Enable Stereo mixing, to do this browse to Start > Control Panel > Sound (in classic view). Once done switch to the Recording tab which will show the currently active inputs on your system (e.g. Line in, Microphone). Right click in the clear space below these devices and select the option for Show disabled devices. This should show an additional device called Stereo mixing, right click on this device and select Enable.
Hopefully this helps!
