fng_thatoneguy: can you try chosing "Software" instead of hardware in the audio tab of the launcher options, to see if it works any better?

Zahl: hum I looked again thoroughly at what modifications are included in the patch, and there's really nothing relating even remotely to audio. So I'm a bit puzzled the update changes anything at all.
Some questions to understand better:
when the music doesn't play and the framerate drops, do the other sounds also stop?
Also, where you playing trackmania the day before the update, or was it since some time ago? (I just want to make sure it's not a coincidence that the sound is broken after the update, and not that it was broken even if you didn't update.)
What sound card do you have?
oh and also, can you tell me the OpenAl32.dll version in the "c:\Program Files\Trackmania" folder?

@xbx: Thanks for the reply!
I actually tried turning EAX off and that did the trick initially. However, I tried again last night and was actually able to have all three sound types running at the same time (engine, horn and music) where one would usually disappear, but was still having the framerate issue.

I then tried turning the sound quality down, as well as lowering resolution/AA/AF settings, changing one setting at a time, but to no avail.

I finally got frustrated and went and changed reset the presets to VeryHighQuality and it started rocking again. Framerates back up and everything back to good. I even turned the sound quality back to High.

I also need to note that I'm playing the Steam version and it is still on 2.11.25 (StarTrack Edition Update) version; and I started noticing the issue after that update.
(Is the Steam update coming soon?)

Here are my current settings:

  • Fullscreen: Resolution=1920x1200
    Advanced: Display
    • Customize: checked
      Preset: VeryHighQuality
      Antialiasing: 8 samples
      Max Filtering: Anisotropic 16x
      Force Dynamic Colours: unchecked
      Force Motion Blur: checked
      Force Bloom: checked
    Advanced: Audio
    • Audio enabled: checked
      Audio Device: SB Audigy 2 ZS Audio [C000]
      Quality: High
      Enable EAX: unchecked
      Enable Doppler: unchecked
      Allow music to change while racing: checked

Check your keybord or the game settings on profile inputs.
If not work try to unistall and install the game again and of course delete the documents folder.

Sorry for this really late reply, I was very busy with my bachelor thesis :oops:
As I mentioned in my post, I skipped the StarTrack Update, so maybe there already were any changes, or was it really just new tracks?
And I have to admit, that I didn't play much Trackmania around that time, as I was already busy working for Uni. The only thing I installed on my computer in the last 6 months or so should have been Bioshock2, maybe an Update to Winamp, but no new drivers for anything, except new graphics drivers after I had the described issues.
My Soundcard also happens to be SoundBlaster Audigy 2, but the Value edition (Should be pretty much the same hardware and drivers anyways).
I also have the problem with the broken engine sound described by fng_thatoneguy, but only very rarely, I think since Trackmania United came out. But never had a framerate drop when that happened. It really sounds a bit like a broken mp3, just high frequency noise.
It seems solely connected to music not playing when it should. My uneducated guess is that on every game tick, Trackmania tries to start the music which takes some time, but it fails, and at the next game tick it happens again. And like a big miracle, after a minute the music might just start and fps goes up again.

My OpenAL32.dll is Version 6.14.0357.22, has 108KB and was last modified 11.12.2007

I'll try setting Audio to Software now, and also try to find a newer version of the openAL dll... Maybe something does the trick :)

i most cases are the effects just not accepted by your graphic card or not set in your graphic settings.

hey,
I download the game from steam and I try to update the game from there, it said me that my version currently up to date but I can see that the version is 2.11.16.
While I try to install the exe file from the first message (2.11.26) it said
"distros not compatible".
how can I update my game?

Tnx, Dor.

Does this help - its from slig, but I found it on this forum:
http://f.tmcmc.com/viewtopic.php?f=18&t=175

The download is: (For Steam Users)
http://slig.info/TMF/tmuf_update_StarEd ... -11-24.rar

I just realised, this download is also in the first post anyway.
