I have installed Eve Online through steam and I can hear Aura’s voice, music and UI sounds but no ambiance sounds such as when warping, shooting guns or mining lasers. How do I fix this?
Also, in order not to create another topic, am I allowed to control two characters at the same time if they are on different accounts and PCs? I couldn’t find this info in ToS.
Legally, only if they’re both Omega accounts.
Sound: After hitting Esc, you can manage the audio settings. Are there any values set to 0?
Accounts: No alpha account (should) work the same time as any other account on the same machine.
Also a possible reason for no ambience sound is that if you zoom out you can’t hear the guns shooting but if you zoom in close you can hear the sound again.
Troubleshooting that I’ve tried:
-Zooming in and out
-Changing display options (windowed or fullscreen)
-Disabling/enabling audio via audio settings and then restarting the game
-Uninstalling the game, deleting all Eve Online related folders in Documents and Steam folder
-Reinstalling the game.
I haven’t mention that I’ve downloaded the game from Steam. Next option I am trying now is to install the game directly from eveonline.com and logging in from that client.
I created a ticket anyway in case that doesn’t work. I hope they can figure something out.
Yes, I checked the audio settings.
try clearing cache then restarting game. It’s a cliche, but it does help a lot of problems with EvE.
I solved it. I installed client directly from the website. I guess Steam’s client version is faulty.
