In-Game Sound Tip! (for all streamers!)

  • Quote

Post by SoldieR »

Do you know that annoyance of having AOE3 game sounds jump when you tab out, and then having to adjust the game volume bar? I don't! Here are a few simple steps to never have to worry about this again! (this is especially useful while streaming, so you don't have to go into options and miss part of the game!)

1) Go into your game options and turn volume all the way up! (see attachment)
2) Open "Volume Mixer". You can do this by searching in the windows program menu.
3) Adjust the AOE3 Volume Bar to your desired level of output. (see attachment)
4) Play, and never adjust the volume again!

Because the game's volume is set at max, it cannot jump any higher when you tab out!

Part of me suspects this might be related to the other soundbug.

Thanks for putting this together, I once wrote the same guide but someone deleted our database right after and we had to restore data from an earlier backup, couldn't get myself to write it again. This is how everyone should handle AoE3 sound always.

I also always had in-game sound on max and then used general volume or mixer to adjust to the wanted level.
Soundbug seems related to in game fps (the higher the easier to soundbug) and in general to multiple sound sources such as music or videos.

Just came across this post. Makes a lot of sense. I took my Vsync away this week and I noticed I got soundbug now even though I've never had it before :hmm: Interesting
Do you know if there is any solution?

I think I read somewhere that there is a drawback to having Vsync on also. Am I just crazy, or is that true?

It lowers the FPS cap, so it doesn't make a difference unless you're gibson who has every game ever running at 1000 fps.

No even if you’re only getting 60fps with vsync off turning vsync on just makes the game feel choppier. It’s terrible, but not as bad as sound bug

Yeah, I'll test vsync on today. The thing is that when I turned it off the game just felt way smoother. I don't know if that's because the graphs settings i turned off with it or just the fps boost i got from turning it off

does getting 1000 fps matter? No, you are not going to get more frames than your monitor refresh rate
Fine line to something great is a strange change.

That's not what you get, The more fps the smoother the game feels even if you can only perceive 24 of those frames
