thank you so much for your reply and heads-up!
The audio issue is basically constant to me.
There has been absolutely no audio issue prior Overwatch Reaper - Code of Violence update (Version: 188.8.131.52.94236) - 23.02.2022 Europe.
But straight after updating the game and hearing the music in the lobby I already recognized that the audio changed.
I literally can’t hear the fx sound if you hover over a button in the main menu. I can’t track a Pharah anymore since every sound is in the same position on my headphones, for example. Footsteps are basically non-existing since every audio is focused on one point.
The game overall went a lot quieter so I have to turn up my windows volume a lot. Before the update, I even had the volume lower in OW to ~80. Now everything is on 100 and I have to turn up the windows volume too. There’s just no… depth to the sound anymore if this makes sense.
I’m using a Strix Sound Card which helped me a lot to hear the fx sounds, voice cues, footsteps and stuff clear and louder. But all those things disappeared. It feels like I’m using two loudspeakers in front of me - somehow. Yet, all sounds in other games are the same as usual.
- Audio issue constant - since Reaper - Code of Violence update
- Doesn’t matter: which Hero, Map, Game-Mode, when I play - it’s the same
- I already recognized the audio change after the first second of starting Overwatch. The change was very significant.
- All other games, discord voices and stuff are still the same - nothing has changed.
Regarding DirectSound Hardware-Acceleration and SRC Sliders:
I’m not able to find the Advanced button in the Sound Playback list. I’ve tried to find other guides and videos but still wasn’t able to figure it out. Neither my friends could help me find it.
Is there another command to get to the Advanced button right away? Or maybe I don’t have the button since I’m not using Realtek Audio Drivers?
While searching for the Advanced Button. I’ve found some changes to my Strix Sound Card on 24/02/2022 which could be a coincidence but yet would fit the first time I’ve launched the Reapers - Code of Violence update.
I’m not sure if it means anything at all or if I just tried to fix the audio issue on my end at this date. However, I thought I will upload some pictures, maybe it can help solve the issue.
If I leak any sensible data, I would appreciate it if you could delete a certain screenshot. Thanks ♥
Thank you so freaking much for your help. I really really do appreciate it.
