Did you tried the steps suggested in this thread?
Did you tried "Stereo"?
@ThandalNLyman I think you're correct. I wonder if there is any software we could dowload to redirect Speaker-C / Speaker-3 / centre-speaker to be played through the usual stereo L-R / A-B ?
Seems someone late in this post reinstalled the game and got voice-audio from story characters to work? bump? any update?
So this is for no voice in NFS Heat, but I assume applies to other games
In short: try setting to Stereo (ticking Left & Right) + ticking Virtual Surround
1 Sound > Playback > Speakers > Configure > STEREO > tick Left and Right
2 Sound > Playback > Speakers > Properties > Enhancements > tick VIRTUAL SURROUND
1.1) ran nfs-heat
1.2) opened Sound
1.3) Playback tab
1.4) ensure Speakers are listed with a green tick
1.5) click Configure > Stereo > TICK "Front Left & Right" (mine were not ticked)
Then I needed an additional step, because I noticed it wouldn't work on Stereo if i selected it using the MSI sound program, but engine noise and music would work if i selected 7.1
Sooo I went back to:
2.1 Sound > Playback > selected:
2.2 Speakers (green tick haha)
2.3 clicked Properties
2.4 Enhancements tab
2.5 Selected VIRTUAL SURROUND
then it all worked ^.^
