Well, it seems the problem is caused by a outdated 'openal32.dll' file inside your game folder. The game chooses to use this dll over the system one, so if it's an older version, it won't work. This file should not be there. 'wrap_oal.dll' can also be safely removed, that way the game will use the latest OpenAL dll's installed.

So, those of you who haven't tried the solution JackaBot147 posted, make sure that there is no 'openal32.dll' in your game redist folder, and that you install the latest OpenAL redistributable (which can be found here).

If it keeps failing after that, then please please please report it. With your help I hope all these issues will be fixed someday.

Also, if it works, please report it too Tongue

@Schwarze Pest, you're most probably right, as IIRC the Audigy drivers ship with a native OpenAL driver (ct_oal.dll). You should find these dll's (openal32.dll, wrap_oal.dll -and ct_oal.dll in your case-) in the Windows/System32 folder. If they're not there, then your computer is doing some kind of magic I would be afraid of Tongue

Maybe your copy of that file is corrupted. Install the game with the OpenAL checkbox unchecked, download the OAL installer from here, and try to run it. Let's see if that helps Smile

JackaBot147 Wrote:I registered, just to say it. I had the same problem. The ASource or something. I deleted the "wrap_oal.dll" with "OpenAL32.dll", And it works for me. If it doesn't work. First: Install the Game with the OpenAL32. Second: Try to start the game. If you get the message, delete these 2 files. NOT BEFORE THE START OF THE GAME! Well, I hope it helped you, as it helped me. Peace! !!!Make sure you backup these 2 files!!!

when i reinstall "OpenAL" i got this message: Some openAL files were in use-- a reboot
will be required to complete installation.
but when the reboot is done, it's all the same again, nothing is changed..i can't find the "wrap_oal.dll" or "OpenAL32.dll",how can i ifind these files??
