Sound/Audio not working...

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Just reinstalled NOLF 2 on WINX so that I could replay this classic. The sound/audio doesn't work after the title screen, so nothing during the animation scenes so far. I tried to install the patch that I found online but I get a catastrophic error everytime I try to install it. I'm at a loss for what to do here. Any suggestions?

Hello there,

First of all I'd like to point out that I don't use windows 10 myself, but many of the issues seems to boil down to compatibility, missing admin rights for the executables or missing codecs.

Not sure which patch you tried to install though. the official 1.3?

However you already got the game running so I suspect that you would need to install WMFADist.exe for the missing audio codec. Not sure if that file followed nolf2 installation or not. But I know it does for Contract Jack. (same engine)

also try to disable hardware sound in the launcher options,

Another known issue with the nolf series when it comes to sound is the framerate. you wanna keep that below 60fps, but that usually cuts of sound, sound wouldn't be gone completely then.

Hey!

Thank you for the suggestions. I have tried all of that, patching, administrator, installing the WMFADist.exe , nothing seems to work. 

I'm starting to lose hope and I really want to replay this game. Everything runs and works except the sound after starting a new game.

You're running it in compatibility mode (Windows XP SP2) ?
