Strange Firestorm vehicle sound issue

Recommended Posts

Hi folks. The FS group might be a better place for this, but this might be too long for in-world chat. I dunno. Plus I know there are FS experts here, so trying here first :). PC specs below.

Since I did a (clean) Win 10 install (up from Win 7, where there were no such issues) I only (passingly and faintly) hear engine sounds in the left speaker when I turn left, and in the right speaker when I turn right when driving any vehicle - bike, car, boat or airplane. I don't hear anything when driving forward, total silence. To hear idle I have to zoom in very close to the vehicle or cam in front of it. Same with every scripted vehicle, whether ACS/KCP or other scripts.

Vehicle sounds at 100 % where this can be adjusted. Master and Sounds in FS at 100 %. Tried with Media both enabled and disabled. With PC volume turned way up all SL sounds (e.g. teleport) are very loud, but vehicle sounds are sometimes barely audible.

Everything sounds normal in the LL viewer, but strangely not in FS (tested with latest FS + the back versions I could find for Win 64).

I'm probably missing something obvious here.

I would suggest you check the settings in your OS, as I don't see any mention of that as part of your troubleshooting. 

Window Start - Settings - Sound - Sound Control Panel - Speakers. Start with Playback tab, Configure.
