1. We have a QA initiative where we work with the community more closely than ever to get your bug reports into the hands of the developers. Please use this forum for LIVE Server bug reporting. Do follow the format below, because it will help us out greatly in responding. If you do not, it's possible your bug report will be misinterpreted, or worse, lost!

    Read BEFORE submitting your first bug: Reporting Bugs… QA 101 Document
    • Disable all Lua Add-Ons by using '/lua unload' in local chat or temporarily move all files/folders out of the SotA Lua folder then restart the game.
      Ensure the issue still occurs before submitting a bug; Support staff will not debug Add-On issues
    • Search for your bug before posting in order to avoid duplicate reports.
    • Only reply to an existing thread if you have additional information for the reported bug. ALL extraneous commentary will be deleted to avoid cluttering the reports.
    • Keep your bug report short and factual.
    • There is no need to submit crash logs. Crash data we require is automatically logged.

    Title: Sound Balancing Issues
    Reproduction Rate: Much since QA
    Blocker? Unpleasant
    The balance of loudness of effects seems to have changed. Some towns doors are very loud to the forcing turning down, but then cannot hear the surrounding environment.

    There is distortion and clipping in some sounds. See Soltown bug.

    Realtek Audio Driver and Soundblaster Connect.
    Loudness equalization use to be able to normalize this but its not working the same, external windows sounds mute SOTA -8-10DB my guess.

    Agreed - the overall mix of in-game sounds needs a little polish. For example - I remember a review saying there were no footstep sfx - there are, but the level is a bit too low - so I can see people missing it unless using headphones, or with the music off and just sfx enabled.
