    Weird problem with sound settings

    Post by Technopiper on Fri Aug 07, 2015 1:31 pm

    Hi guys, I have a problem setting the speech volume. No matter my setting, in-game speech remains the same. Even when I set it to "0", I can still hear speech at 100% volume. Has anyone noticed that? I tried everything: disabling SSM, even reinstalling. I understand speech can be disabled by renaming the "speech" folder, but I just want to tone down its volume a bit.

    Another related problem. Graviteam says here: http://graviteam.com/forum/index.php?topic=4.0

    I've found that you can disable subtitle by disabling sound all together. But what if I want to retain sound?

    Suppose, this is a system problem. In case u've win 8 may be u need to adjust A/V receiver?
    From FAQ:
    19. Q. I do not hear any sounds, like engines or gunshots. Why?
     A. Win8.1 is not using your 5.1 A/V receiver as the default playback device.

    But I'm not running audio through a receiver, but from the motherboard build-in sound. All sound effects are there, I just couldn't change the speech volume. I even get an audio confirmation [softer/louder] when I adjust the speech slider. Does anyone have the same experience?

    Set it up manually:
    ...data\k42\loc_rus\config\config.engcfg
    Code:
    speech_vol=0.390000;

    I set it to "speech_vol = 0.000000", speech plays in the same volume. I just installed the game on a notebook running Windows 7 SP1 64-bit. Same thing happened. Speech slider doesn't do anything. Could you try setting speech to "0" and see if there's a difference? Is this one of those "placebo feature"? confused

    I have the same problem. Speech is always too loud and annoying...no control at all. Windows 8?

    Go into your config file: data/k_42/loc_rus/config and check the following entry :

    This is mine and I can adjust the volume both in game and through my pc without any problem. Open the file with note pad and adjust the speech or music volumes at your convenience. Save and exit the file.


    //çâóê
    i_soundman:soundman()
    {
    //óñòðîéñòâî äëÿ âîñïðîèçâåäåíèÿ çâóêà (0 - ïî óìîë÷àíèþ)

    My config file is identical, I even changed the parameters to match yours, didn't help. I tried it on 2 PCs: a desktop running Win 8.1 and a notebook running Windows 7. Both has the same problem with unmodded stock game.

    This isn't a big deal, I am thankful the game runs at all, really had a blast the whole week. It's just that an unsolved mystery bothers me. cyclops Guess I'll just have to put up with LINKS! RECHTS! ACHTUUUUNG!!!!!!! rabbit

    TRy lowering th speech volume from to //ãðîìêîñòü ðå÷è
    speech_vol = 0.450000; to 0.250000 and save and see if it works. Also can you turn the sound down using your pc controls?

    I think the global volume control is working correctly, frinik. It's just the speech track that isn't functioning as expected, for some of us at least. I prefer to have the voices drowned-out by gunfires, it's more atmospheric for me. Having a German guy screaming over your every move is a bit anti-climatic. Laughing

    I am relieved to know that I am not the only one with this problem. Thank you for trying it out for me! And thank you too, KurtTank!
