No Audio - sandcoffeee - 02-09-2018 03:28 AM

I've tried three games: Monster Hunter Freedom Unite, Gundam VS Gundam Next Plus, and Dissidia Final Fantasy 012. I'm not getting any audio from any of them. I've tried all of the various combinations of settings in the audio section, and none of them are changing anything from what I can tell. I know that my computer's audio is working fine, since I can hear the notification sounds from Facebook and Discord while the game is running loud and clear.

I guess specs? I have an Acer Aspire i5. I've got 8GB of RAM, and 632GB of storage. I'm using a Dualshock 4 with Apple EarPods. I don't know what else to add. Can one of you fine folks help me out?

Stupid question, but did you turn up the volume in the Windows volume mixer? I know that sometimes it defaults to 0 for PPSSPP fore some weird reason.

Yeah, its volume is up on the mixer...

Lets see then. I presume other games and such also output sound? And no, not browsers or Discord.

Also. I presume in PPSSPP settings you have "Enable sound" ticked and global volume set on max? Did you try changing backends?

Yes. Other games on Steam, as well as other emulators, output sound. I also have both sound Enabled and volume Maxed. I've also tried both backends. No dice. Sad

Weird. if everything else outputs sound then it should work.
Umm. You said you use DS4 with plugged in earphones. I don't remember if they change output, but set output in the PC mixer to PC sound card and see if the sound comes from the speakers. I presume you have laptop?

Alright! We've got audio!

Thank you so much dude!

I guess for some reason the audio just won't output through the DS4? I don't really understand, but I'll just accept this. My computers audio port was jank out of the box, so I'll have to figure out a new work around to use some headphones.

Anyways, thanks again. I really appreciate it. Big Grin

Always welcome~

Btw. There are USB sound cards. I honestly don't know how good they are thou.

If you want a USB external sound card that also supports EAX (for some games) OpenAL's EFX and creative Alchemy to fix Microsoft screwing up EAX in Vista or later. It is a USB card so without a preamp it is not going to run good headphones loudly.... but your using earpods so you will be fine. Also under $40.
