Whenever I use my Strip Miner I - or whenever anyone *else* uses *theirs*, I hear this loud "bleep!" sound, every few seconds when the beams fire.

After talking to some other people, they've never run into this. I did, *once*, hear them make a sound that sounded like they were the Big Brother of Miner IIs, then they went back to beeping at me.

I'm *assuming* I've got a single corrupt soundfile in my installation. It's as if the regular sound effect is simply being played back way too fast, or something.

Unfortunately, I'm not sure how to fix it. Is there a way to tell Eve "scan every single file in my installation, and redownload anything that may be corrupted"? I know such a task would be time-consuming, and I'm okay with that. Or should I just redownload and reinstall the client?

Or is there an even easier fix?

FWIW, I'm using an onboard Realtek sound chip, on WinXP. I've got great sound /otherwise/, except for this one single sound effect. The "Eve crashes with Realtek hardware" bug doesn't appear to affect me.

EDIT: Oh yes, and "Hardware sound acceleration" is turned OFF in my Eve client. IME these onboard sound chips have never really supported that properly anyway.

I get the same thing. When I alt-tab to firefox, it only happens once in a while. I've re-downloaded and re-installed EVE and my sound drivers, but no luck.

I'm using onboard sound, SoundMAX ADI AD1988. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hm. Well, even though no answer seems to be forthcoming, I suppose I should be glad it's not only me experiencing this. :)

Another one here as well!

SIS 7012 Integrated Audio Controller on my board.

In additional to the Bleep mine moves from left to right intermittantly.

If used with Skype at the same time (which is normally perfect within Eve) The sound either distorts badly or totally disappears.

Spending 4 or 5 hours in an ice field results in a crappy headache if I dont finally succumb to turning down the speaker. ugh

My problem has only appeared since Trinity and appears in both the classic and premium clients.

Alt Tabbing a couple of times occasionally clears the problem.

I have the exact same problem with the "Bleep!" sound. The only way I know of to
make it stop is to zoom out to the Solar system map, and zoom back in WHILE the strip miners are running. That brings the correct sound back (until you dock and undock, and then you have to do the whole thing over again.Confused

hmm.. Actually, I haven't heard that sound yet. In fact, I don't hear any sounds from my strip miners I's. I tried zooming to map as well to see if that would fix it.. no go here.Confused

Ok, I just noticed something. You know how you can hear the wind out in space when your sitting there (ok, I know.. doesn't fit anyways for space, but better than just silent).. anyways, when the ingame music switches songs you lose that wind sound. But, if you hit F10 to go to your starmap, then hit F10 to return, you regain the wind sound. Now, this 'reset' as it seems doesn't effect strip miner sounds for me (which I still have none).

Heh, it's funny. I never knew there were any 'wind' sounds. I've never heard
them. So I have to use a reset for strip miners, but never hear any wind, and
you use a reset to hear wind, but never hear the strip miners. Laughing
