Sound Initialisation failed.

Post by Count_JJ » Sat Nov 09, 2019 7:09 pm

I am new to this fantastic game and community, so forgive my ignorance if this is something that is considered stupid to need support for. I can't seem to get sound to work for my installation of the game. I know for a fact my computer (MacBook Pro 15'' mid 2014, Running MacOS Sierra Version 10.12.6) has perfectly functional sound, I can play sound files and other games just fine. I've tried every combination of sound setting, and every time, the game gives me an error: "Sound Initialisation failed" (yes it was spelled with an s) . If anyone can please help, Its so eerie with no sound, I feel like I've gone deaf. Also I'd love to post a recording of today's sumo match on youtube, and It just doesn't sound right with...well, no sound.[img] ... 02f820.gif[/img]

I wonder if Arma uses libSDL? I think it does, IIRC. Perhaps this might be of use to you:

A different game, but conceivably a similar problem.
