Hey guys.

I'm using Ubuntu 9.04.

The game works well, but I can't get sound working correctly at all in the game. Sound works outside of the game, volume isn't muted, etc etc.

When running from the command line and I change the driver (these are the only two choices in the list), this is what I see:
Code:
1
2
3
$ ./CounterStrike2D
Failed To set audiodriver 'FreeAudio OpenSound System'!
Failed To set audiodriver 'FreeAudio'!


Each line refers to the driver choice in the list. I'm drawing a blank. Any ideas?

i too have sound problems on PCLinuxOS. Sometimes CS2D starts with sound, but sometimes without sound. This is very annoying. tried everything, nothing works

This is because CS2D uses OSS (rather outdated in my opinion) and therefore needs exclusive sound access.

In addition, if you run CS2D and it successfully locks the resources, there is no other sound outside the game.

You could try to run CS2D with the alsa-oss wrapper ($ aoss ./CounterStrike2D).
But I doubt that this would help because Ubuntu 9.04 which ships with PulseAudio should actually provide an extra layer for OSS apps.

I wonder why BlitzMax doesn't just use ALSA like everyone else

Works great on Ubuntu 10.10. Aren't Debian and Ubuntu pretty much alike?

aoss is user-space emulation of oss with alsa as sound drivers.
however oss emulation doens't allow mixing.

so to use aoss no other program can/must use sound.

try to use aoss when there is no other application using sound.

ot: oss is NOT outdated.
good day fragezeichen alias 3rr0r
