Bug Reports & Support / [0.8a] Constant crashing with sound enabled
« on: April 21, 2017, 12:00:53 PM »
I'm getting semi-random crashes when playing with sound on since 0.8a, not always in the exact same place, but always when passing within a certain distance of planets or stellar objects on the campaign map. No issues in combat. No crashes with sound off.

Fresh install on an SSD, issues persist after hotfix (which I also did a fresh install of, uninstalling and wiping old directory). Windows 8.1 64-bit, java 8 32/64-bit installed to system.

I found a few threads on here with similar problems and tried some of the suggested solutions:

-rebooted PC
-reinstalled the game
-moved the OpenAL32.dll found in my windows/system32 directory
-installed OpenAL from
-checked my audio device. I don't have anything partially plugged in, and it doesn't make a difference where I plug my earphones in, or whether I have them entirely unplugged.

No dice. I remember having this problem once before a couple of versions ago, but since it was more than a year ago I don't remember the specifics. Iirc I didn't fix the problem myself, it just went away with the next patch.  :-\

Here's what seems to be the relevant bit of a crash log:
