Not once did I claim to have any factual evidence nor "pretend to know stuff". If you read the post correctly you would've seen this:Dr.Disaster wrote: Well that is a solution. Yet it would be way better to keep people out of the "pretending to know stuff" corner.
One person's understanding is not a fact. It is a very subjective thing, as people can mis-understand things in any number of different ways. Hence why problems arise and in this case, the reason for my visiting this forum in the first place; To help clarify my understanding, to hopefully solve my problem. Yet you chose to 'nonsense' my issue whilst not helping resolve it. In this case some of what I knew and understood was incorrect and I took measures to correct that, which ultimately ended in my resolving my problem.thetasigma2 wrote: My understanding is this:
Why are you implying that I said this was the issue? Remind me again where I claimed this? Oh right... Nowhere! I claimed I had an issue with a particular sound coming out, despite other content handling it just fine. Hence why I came here.Dr.Disaster wrote: Has anyone ever hear of a game (or sound-using other application) that uses digitally encoded sound only for specific sound effects while having only one master volume slider at the same time?
Again you implied stupidity on my part, rather than helping.
Guess what? I can produce that same effect by mis-configuring my software too!Dr.Disaster wrote: For example I can reproduce the effect described above without activating any digital encoded sound signal simply by misconfiguring my analogue sound setup in Realtek HD Audio Manager.
Oh but wait... I didn't mis-configure the software! Just read here (which you didn't and likely won't).
Which initially suggested my problem was an issue with the game. In fairness, I'll admit that I later found out it wasn't, but was in fact an issue of using an incorrect cable, whilst using the correct sound configurationthetasigma2 wrote: I've tested it with successful sound 'placement' (eg left sounds come from left speaker, rear sounds from rear speaker etc) on the following:

So in summary.
You completely mis-understood my problem. Generally I have no problems with that, but then you used your own lack of knowledge and reading skills to ridicule me in a 'support forum'. Claiming my statement to be 'nonsense'. Of course there was a chance it would sound nonsensical! That's what happens when people have a mis-understanding. But instead of taking the high ground, by ignoring it and helping address my issue, you chose to ridicule me for it. Not exactly the reactions expected by people experiencing issues in a 'support forum'.
Which begs the question: why are you even reading and posting in the help section? Just to ridicule people's lack of knowledge, whilst simultaneously showing your own, by not reading and understanding people's issues?
Well to anyone reading this post and laughing at the stupidity of the two of us arguing. (And lets face it a lot of you are lol!)
I'd highly suggest not taking any advice from this Dr.Disaster guy. Who ironically appears to be the one in
as evidenced by his inability to read and understand people's issues.Dr.Disaster wrote:the "pretending to know stuff" corner
