Thanks in advance for any help :)

Hmm, odd, anything in the logs about it?

If there is hope it lies with the demo scene.

Which version of DirectX are you using? Windows XP (9.x) or Vista (10.x)? I know that DirectX 10 is about as backwards compatible as driving in reverse in the fast lane on a freeway.

I'm using Direct x 9.0c on Xp professional, From myDirect x diagnostic my machine can only use a software buffer aparently, I'm not exactly sure what that means.

thanks for your reply

Hm, so it's not a Vista issue.

However, a software buffer means that the system can't use your sound card (or integrated on-board sound on your motherboard) if you have them; it's using your computer's CPU and RAM to store the sound effects to be output to your speakers instead of using any of your computer's sound-playing hardware (dedicated hardware is of course much, much better at handling the sounds to be output).

If you don't have any sound card or integrated sound card, it's possible that I-War2 doesn't know what to do and just assumes that it can't play any sounds. Otherwise, I have no idea -- I've never had problems with sound. Sorry!

Ummm, maybe a stupid question for you, but have you gone into your options menu -> Sound and turned the effects volume up?
Speech, music, movies and effects are all handled seperately in EOC. I turned the music volume to 0.
This can als be adjusted in the flux.ini here:
[fcSoundDeviceDA]
distance_factor = 0.5
rolloff_factor = 0.27
doppler_shift_factor = 0.05
effects_volume = 0.8
speech_volume = 0.6
music_volume = 0

Valid values are 0 to 1 in .1 increments
