How To Fix All Sound Issues! Working Fix!!!! No Lie! Check It Out!
I JUST FIGURED OUT HOW TO FIX BIOSHOCK SOUND ISSUES
IF U HAVE NO SOUND AT ALL, OR JUST SNAPPING AND POPPING
THEN USE THIS FIX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ok why your sound isnt working on vista
YOU DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHT CODECS!!!!!!!!!!
i learned this with a 3rd party debugger
that showed me that bioshock was trying to acsess codes THAT DO NOT EXIST.
so i installed them.
AND BIOSHOCK HAS SOUND NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
also Fmod gives MUCH BETTER QUALITY!!!!!!!
so here are the links for both!
FMOD (DOWNLOAD THE LATEST STABLE EX PROGRAMMERS VERSION)
NOW GO PLAY BIOSHOCK AND GIVE 2k GAMES A BREAK!
I have Realtek onboard sound. No audio issues unless I enable EAX. Installing both of these EAX still crackles and pops during HD access. I don't doubt you, both files pass a virus scan and I believe its just Realtek's poor implementation of EAX in my case. Anyone who doesn't have sound at all have these fix it for them?
dont turn on EAX
who have some amazing models of soundblaster cards
still get crackle
on my realtek hd
i got no sound
with drivers and all!
but install these.
and i guarentee
a working fix
28 of my friends have used this and it works!
This does not work for me or 32 of my friends !
But, if you,
1. Click on vista logo (start menu) and then onto system control
2. Open the settings called "sound"
3. Chose from the tabs the "record settings"
4. In this tab you should see something called "stereo mix" if u dont see this right click into the window and check the two settings which appear (something like show deactivated devices).
5. Now you should see the stereo mix, right click on it and chose activate.
When you start Bioshock you will notice the buttons make nice bling bling sounds which means the workaround was successful and it should work for you and 28 of your friends.

fast u have made a mistake
make no mistake
this fix works.
it is meant for realtek HD SOUND!
and for the most recent drivers
but if u have a different one
then stereo mixing fixes the problem
99% of them time
except for my bio teacher
who use this fix
MEANT FOR EAX.
notice how it says creative EAX.
it is usually for creative cards

What's this "stereo mix" thing you're talking about? Is it in Windows XP?
