No Sound with Win 7 & "Realtek High Definition Audio"
I played Babylon OK on my old computer ( Vista with "SoundMax Integrated Digital HD Audio" for Sound)
My new computer has (Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit with ""Realtek High Definition Audio" for Sound) but I do not
get any sound in the Game. The rest of the Games plays OK.
In the FS2 Open Launcher under Tab > Audio/Joystick > Currently Selected OpenAL Sound Device >
shows only [ no sound ].

I found this "OpenAL Installer for Windows" here:
http://connect.creativelabs.com/openal/Downloads/Forms/AllItems.aspx

Question? How do I get Sound in Babylon to work with Win 7 & "Realtek High Definition Audio"?
Should I just install the "OpenAL Installer from the above link?

Thanks,

Re: No Sound with Win 7 & "Realtek High Definition Audio"
Pretty much.  After you install OpenAL, you should be able to select "Generic Software" in that drop-down menu.

I'm shocked if you've actually managed to get TBP running without installing OpenAL.

Yeah, the Launcher should start complaining right away....

Re: No Sound with Win 7 & "Realtek High Definition Audio"
Thanks. Fixed by Using the "OpenAL Installer for Windows" from the above link [ file - "oalist.zip"].
I now have "Generic Software" in the Launcher & the sound works perfectly.
Now with crystal clear sound & a Dell 27in Monitor I really am in Space.
