I've noticed that during more complex combat missions my sound won't act normally. Missiles, turrets, ship explosions, will simply stop producing sound, or only happen occasionally. Seems pretty lame, I guess it doesn't "affect gameplay" other than **** me off. Anyone else experience this?

I don't understand how this isn't THE number 1 priority to CCP in a future patch? Sound is a major part of any game becoming immersive. Surely, if the sound was sorted out in Eve, some of the players who play for a bit and then give in, would stay. Surely, as this is 1 of the more expensive MMO's to play, CCP can afford an overhaul of the whole sound system in game.....

I've noticed it too and it is very, very annoying. Is this a OSX specific problem? Evil or Very Mad

That's where the problem is, they *did* overhaul the sound system and now it's borked. Confused

I have the same problem. Solution (not convenient, though, as it happens more than once): Switch camera to a targeted ship, then reset camera to your ship. Apparently this resets the sounds (for a while).

AFAIK, this was supposed to be fixed in Dominion (it goes back to Apocrypha, before then the problem didn't exist for me).

CCP, would you PLEASE fix this??? It takes quite some of the awesomeness of this game away...

Heh.. obligatory "EVE has sound?"

Many people turn sound off because there are worse things than having weapon sounds stopping when you're in the middle of a fleet fight. Such as, for example, having the client hard-lock the computer and force a wall-switch reset. Yes, EVE's sound is that bad.

It was a amusing for a while that when I was flying an Omen in missions with another pilot in a Drake - I'd be 40km away from the drake, but the only noise I could hear would be the shield hardeners on the Drake, or the missiles exploding when they hit the NPCs. Never would I hear my lasers firing.

Sometimes I wonder if this problem is with certain ships. Do a mission in a CNR, sound is all screwed up (until you do the camera trick). Run plexes with my Hawk, sound seems to be OK. Of course I am going out on a limb as I have never thoroughly tested it.

This sound problem is rather annoying. Worse, new players who will certainly have the sound on must wonder WTF. MMO of the year and can't get the basics correct? But hey, we did get sound fonts!
