Alt-Tab Sound Burst bug

Post by Firkraag » February 10th, 2017, 3:32 pm

When I leave Torment beta open in the backrgound for a while and later go back to it, there's pretty solid sonic attack on my ears happening for some reason (one burst, lasting a second or two, then it goes to normal). Hope, it isn't the final build, but if it is, it's worth looking into. Happened twise already, wasn't nicest thing to experience.

i can not reproduce this (just checked)
this may be related to your sound setup though, i will check if it happens on my end at release again.

otherwise i would suggest posting your specs as well (sound card, OS , outpiut devices, drivers etc.)

otherwise the report is a bit vague to act on.

I'm don't know, how to be less vague on this (other than posting PC's specs). When left unattended minimazed game windows explodes with sound on entry, as if trying to play several sounds at once (or faster, I'm not sure, what exactly). No, definitely much louder if I wait longer. Like after half an hour it becomes a *bang* and then music proceeds as normal.

Windows 7
Headphones (Koss Porta Pro)
Not sure, whether any of these are drivers or card's name, Device Manager isn't very forthcoming on this one.
AMD High Definition Audio Device (7.12.0.7723)
Realtek High Definition Audio (6.0.1.7727)
Digital Power Station (1.0.0.0)

What else?

Update. I was wrong, Torment window is not minimized, it just hangs in the background.

Tried to wait a bit more, burst happened allright but no music afterwards.

Tried to record it with audacity, but sound quality is atrocious and to find out how to fix this might be beyond me.

Though, when I think about it, not sure what sound sample of the phenomena would do, anyway.

Can you clarify if this issue happens on the main menu, in combat, during exploration, etc.?

I think we had some bugs that match this description, but at least some were fixed earlier this year. I can't seem to reproduce it anymore while just standing around in Sagus Cliffs, or on the main menu.

Main menu. Can try in other instances as well. It doesn't require any active work on my part, after all.

What else can I send you, that might help you to narrow down the problem?

It was probably fixed a few weeks after the last beta update from the sound of it, then. I wouldn't worry unless it shows up for you in the release version. ;)

It does occur in the Sagus Cliffs, after all.

...Also words in Option menu are mangled when I enter it (after I left the game window hanging for a while). And item descriptions, as well... Haven't seen that one before.

Loading the game levels in the background, while loading another game doesn't do any good to Torment. Looks, like Shadowrun is jealous. ;)

thanks that was definitely sufficient. I checked and reproduced the issue.

As Sear said we need to wait until release it may have been fixed, i will check again then.
