[quote="Ashley":10abrgcd]Deadeye, I think Scytos might have stopped checking this thread[/quote:10abrgcd]
No, I'm here, sorry it took me a while to post, I wanted to try updating my chipset/video drivers too before I posted (my sound card is onboard), which didn't work. I was just about to start writing when you posted that message.
[quote="Ashley":10abrgcd]Scytos, can you try running this?http://www.scirra.com/files/xaudio2test.zip
Let me know what messages appear - it's got a prompt at every stage of the initialisation process. Hopefully it'll be able to tell us exactly where things are going wrong for you.[/quote:10abrgcd]
Ugh. I'm not sure the result is helpful - it went through every stage without a problem, then a generic Windows error happened at the end. That is,
Creating volume meter
Creating mastering voice
Getting device details
Setting master volume
then one of those generic "has encountered a problem and needs to close" Windows errors. Details say the error is in xaudio2_2.dll, which I guess is somewhat expected. Funny thing is, deleting that file makes the game run - without sound, but it runs (although it might break on sound triggered events, I don't know). Deleting that file and reinstalling DirectX doesn't fix it, either.
I appreciate all the trouble, by the way.
