Author Topic: 5.1 surround sound  (Read 1165 times)

Hey guys, Ive been playing Freespace 2 for about 3 months now, and am enjoying it thoroughly. However, I just got myself a pair of Arctic P531 surround sound headphones, and really would like to have the surround sound experience in Freespace 2.

I have tried to install OpenAl Soft, but have noticed no change, I am only getting sound out of the "front" speakers of the headset.

I might not have correctly installed the OpenAL -Soft, but i found the instructions less than enlightening. :confused:   :banghead:
Here is my log file from after i "installed" OpenAL -Soft

If anyone has any ideas, or advice on how to install OpenAL Soft properly, please let me know.
btw, I am running this on a Windows 8 powered asus g74sx with a NVidea  GeForce GTX 560M, if it makes a difference.

You need to get the OpenAlSoft dll file, but I guess you already have this one.  You need to put it into your root fs2 folder [probably C:\Games\Freespace2\]. Then you need to rename it to openal32.dll. Then you need to select OpenAl Soft in wxLauncher in Basic settings in Audio. I don't know how this works in old 5.5g launcher. After you save your profile, it should work.
Oh guys, use that [ url ][ img ][ /img ][ /url ] :/

Side note - As you are using Windows 8, you should really be using wxLauncher if you aren't already, 5.5g has some compatibility issues under 8.

There's nothing as OpenAL Soft in WxLauncher and in Laucher 5.5g in Basic Setting in Audio setup. Despite having installed OpenAL and having the dll into my Freespace 2 root directory.
The only Sound software detected is Generic Software.

And I confirm I don't have 5.1 sound in Freespace 2 SCP just a simple 2.0.

My sincerest apologies. For WxLauncher you might need to put openal32.dll in its install location in \bin\. For me, I have a file C:\Games\wxLauncher\bin\openal32.dll

Or keep the DLL's original name (soft_oal.dll) install it the way the readme recommends:
Quote
To use the 32-bit DLL, copy it from the Win32 folder to the folder OpenAL32.dll
is installed in.
For 32-bit Windows, the Win32 DLL will typically go into the system32 folder.
For 64-bit Windows, the Win32 DLL will typically go into the SysWOW64 folder.

Using it as soft_oal.dll in your FS2 Open directory is more than enough, though you could always put a duplicate of that into your wxLauncher /bin/ folder.

However, you need to change from "Generic Software" to a Hardware mode, which in my case is "SB X-Fi Audio [AC00]" and in your case will probably say something like "USB Multi-Channel Audio Device" or some such. In short, there has to be another option besides "Generic Software" for the hardware surround mode to work.

If that doesn't work when named as soft_oal.dll in your FS2 Open directory, then rename it to OpenAL32.dll but only in your FS2 Open directory. Don't play with or mess with any of the other OpenAL files elsewhere on your system. Please note, that if you have to rename it, you will have to close the Launcher (regardless of which one you are using) and re-launch it again.
