Thread: How to activate Sound with Windows Vista

    Icon3 How to activate Sound with Windows Vista

    Some people have the problem that they don't get sounds or music with Windows Vista.

    dougmadman found the solution to fix the problem:

    Go into the folder C:/user/user name/appdata/ and delete the Medieval II Total War folder.

    In Vista this folder may be a hidden folder so you have to enable hidden folders to find it.

    Hi. I downloaded the game inc patch 1.1 but apart from the cinematics and a bit of background music at the main title screen I have no sound at all. I'm running on windows vista premium and the rest of the game runs fine. I have tried the solution above but I cant find the Medieval 2 folder even with hidden folders enabled. I really don't know what to do. Help!

    - open your control panal
    - select and open folderoptions
    - choose the second tab display (or whatever it is called in the english version)
    - scroll down and select show all
    - go to the specific folder and it will be seen now

    i go to my controlpanal and look around to find that there is no folderoptions. i guess im using vista x32 cause i cant find the folder anywhere. seeing as C:/user/user name/appdata/ doesnt exsist in my folders does that mean that i will have to play the game without sound??? or is there another way to activate the sound??? thx

    supposing you have enough gray matter to figure out you should replace user name with your username, and you really don't find the folder, try going to run and type %APPDATA%

    Nope. Just opens the Appdata folder which contains no trace of medieval 2. Any other ideas?

    My faction sounds are mixed up. Elves talk like Orcs, Gondor talks like scottish, Mordor talks like Middle Eastern.
    The Medieval 2 folder in Appdata is no more, I deleted it.

    And all of you are perfectly sure that you have:

    -a clean install of M2:TW
    -a clean install of MK:TW (all 4 Campaigns not necessary but recommended)
    -patched to 1.5
    -installed TA:TW 1.0
    -patched to 1.1 + Bugfix 1

    Don't know how to check the version. May as well download 1.5 anyway and see if that makes any difference. Then i will try the bug fix. Thanks.
