Okay! since the other posts have been deleted due to not following bugreportformat.. lets have another shot at this..
When encountering multiple sounds.. as in bombings nearby or when 3-4 players or more is having a shootout (lobby 100% of the times).. or when two cars are driving nearby I get crazy audio stutter/distortions. The volume of this stutter only gets louder and louder as if it is a feedback of sorts. While this was happening for me during the BETA last weekend 18th-19th of march i got really bad framedrops during the "feedback" however during EA 23:rd-24:th the frames seem to have gotten better atleast. When teleporting into the plane for airdrop the soundissues dissapear untill you're on the ground close to bombings or bigger shootouts.
Youtube link for this phenomena recorded today:
I encounter this everytime i play but the specific dates are:
18th-19th of march (beta)
23:rd-24:th of march (ea)
and yes.. I do realize this is not the kind of bug you necessarily need the dates for but w/e
During Beta I first verified the gamefiles VIA steam. No issues encountered. I then re-installed the game (SSD) - no difference. I then installed it to a normal raptor SATA and had the same issues and longer loadingtimes ofc so I re-installed it again to the SSD and the same audio issues were still there.
I did the same thing as above with the Early Access install and it was no difference. I have reinstalled GPU drivers and my audiodrivers. Nothing helped so far.
I have swapped the graphical settings between minimum - average - maximum, it made no difference on sound.
I adjusted the soundlevels and it made no difference.
I tried other headphones and a different output, made no difference for me or the stuttering.
In the end I even Optimized the game with the crappy "G-force Experience" and disabled V-sync but it made no difference.
When this stutter occur mid-game on the island.. say i am in a small town and someone is throwing a grenade, two people are shooting rapidly and a car drives by.. this stutter occur but it fades away pretty quick after some of the "different sounds" dissapear.. and then the sound is back to normal if there are no extra sounds for a couple of seconds. So its not unplayable for me unless im in the middle of a warzone heh.
