This issue has come up numerous times in this forum, and yes I have searched Redd*t/Ste*m and these forums. None of the fixes work. When I played on Win 10 it was fine, but I haven't played in years. So I recently booted it up and the sound is terrible. Crackling, pixelated. Everywhere in game it does this. Playing the sound files on media player and they sound fine. I've reinstalled the game. Verified game files. Ran as administrator. EVERY THING. I can profide any log texts or specs as needed, I just really want to resolve this issue.
