It used to work fine, then one day it didn't. I tried deleting the preferences folder, no luck.

I'm using a USB headset, everything else works fine, except EVE Online. There's no sound from the game. But when i restart the game with the USB Headset disconnected, and using regular speakers, everything works fine.

I'm using a MBPro.

I've tried duplicating and running the copy, no luck.

Any help is appreciated.

Double-check the sound input/output in Audio & Chat. Check that no other applications (such as Steam, Facetime, Mumble, etc) are trying to claim the USB headset.

Other than that, I have no idea =(

I had somewhat the same issue, I ended up having to set my headset as the main audio output in my System Preferences, and select Default Output Device in the audio section of the settings dialog in the esc window.

Hope this helps.

Have you tried deleting the game and D/Ling a fresh full install? Running the game from a different user account?

Does your headset work with other software?

Bambu Red
Posted - 2011.06.08 02:10:00 - [18]

yes i have tried to reinstall a fresh install of the game. and the headset works with everything else but eve.

have u checked that the headset is set in mac settings as the output audio device?

thats about the only thing i can think of mate. if u are settin the default device in eve settings, just make sure what
your mac default setting is, and change if appropriate. if u done that already man, soz im outta ideas:(

yup, i've checked that in my mac settings my headset is the default output audio device.

this is so strange. it was working one day, and then the next it just stopped. i even tried looking through the config file and (because i dont know what anything is in there) i couldn't find anything about audio.

blerg. lol
