Title: Sound not working on USB Headphones
Post by: starbug on June 15, 2018, 08:34:51 am
I am trying to play Freespace 2 on my SADES SA902 USB 7.1 Channel Virtual Stereo Surround Sound Gaming Headset, but i cannot get any sound on the game, when i launch the game with wxLauncher 0.10.1 beta i select my headset in the basic settings, but get no game sound. I haven't had this issue with any other game. Can anyone offer any suggestions?

Please post your fs2_open.log file.  Instructions on how to do this can be found in this post. That contains some information on what sound device FSO uses.

FreeSpace 2 Open version: 3.7.4.20160704
You should update to FSO 3.8 (https://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?topic=93812.0).

While you are doing that, you should also update your wxLauncher version to make sure it works correctly with the newer FSO version. The newest version is linked in the 3.8 release thread.

I have to have my headset plugged in before opening wxLauncher for it to be detected, but it sound like maybe you are doing that so this may not help,
