I have this issue. On multiplayer only it seems, the game will sound all crackly and popping while walking around, shooting, etc.
I'm really losing my marbles here, been googling alot. I cannot figure this one out! And it didn't used to be like this! For the longest time, I had my screen's refresh rate at 30 unknowingly, but I played the game just fine. When I switched to 60, it seemed to work fine for a bit. Just recently, and I've changed some stuff, this HORRIBLE sound glitch has manifested!
Any tech gurus out there? I'm not a tech guru, I just like to play games. You need specs, just tell me what ya need.
This is driving me bonkers. HELP!
SO I tried setting priority to high, I checked device manager and all my realtek is up to date (the option to update them is greyed out), I set the four audio things off of realtek to studio quality, then defaulted them all, I ran steam as administrator, I have windows 7, and none of this shit worked. I've been rechecking the integrity of the game's aches, nothing.. How do I actually uninstall and reinstall the game itself off of steam?
This never used to happen before! GPU seems to run at 100% while the game is running. I defaulted alot of things, like the GPU control panel thingy, but still nothing.
About 1 minute into any online match, the audio starts to click and pop, like a douchebag, and I want to kill. Please help me! I will pay you, somehow.
Actually I have two folders for steam games, on my E drive and my D drive. Back in the day, I only had the one with SM in it. Recently I made this new one cause I was running out of harddrive space.... hmmmm.. FUCK! I dunno.
I'm trying everything I can find at the moment, but so far no good, so, thought I might as well just ask this forum. If anyone's got some spare time that would be killer! Right now I'm reinstalling direct X stuff from within the steamapps Space marine game folder.
EDIT: so that didn't do anything. It seems to only start crackling when there are heavy weapons fire, like plasma cannons.
OK, next step. Gawd dayum administrator stuff. I am right now running steam as admin. THen I right clicked spacemarine.exe in the SteamApps folder, as admin. THen I set both steam and SM to High priority in admin ran taskmanager.... annnd nothing, still starts popping about a minute into a full 16 player multiplayer match.
OK I just tried adjusting my CPU speeds with COreParking Manager. It was at 100, I put it to 25. still crackling sound crap a minute into any multiplayer match.
-- OK, the whole playing steam, sm on admin level, and setting priority to high for steam and SM seems to really make the game run smooth online, but theres STILL taht fucking stupid crackling popping sound. I turned mouse smoothing on and that didn't do shit either.
