  1. Command prompt games no longer have any sound and don't appear in the volume mixer


    Hello all,


    I make a play games using the Windows command prompt, they each use the c++ Playsound functions to play various .wav sound effects and songs in the games.


    These have worked with no issue for 5 years, but one hour ago I noticed the game had no sound, this isn't unusual as I mute it often but I checked and it wasn't muted, it wasn't in the volume mixer at all.


    All drivers are up to date and this is Windows 10, I restarted the pc. I've tried a bunch of things but no luck.


    Any advice would be great

    Thanks

    Huw

  2. How can i get the volume mixer sound for a particular game if it's muted from volume mixer

    OT- Sound Issues

    Since programs are only listed in volume mixer if they are "making sound", and you mute it from volume mixer, how can you get it back as listed on volume mixer because if it's muted from volume mixer then it won't make sound for volume mixer to identify
    therefore you can never get it back, but I need volume for the game I'm playing. Is there a way to get it to reappear even though it's permanently muted? I've been searching for an answer but it's all saying to make the program make noise so it registers,
    but it's muted from volume mixer, so how do I get it to make noise??

    Hello,

    I understand your concern, and we in Community will try to help you in the best possible way we can.

    I would like to inform you if a game is permanently muted in volume mixer, then you won’t be getting sound for that particular game. The applications which are having sound option might be listed in the volume mixer if you find those applications in
    the volume mixer separately, then you can adjust the volume of those applications separately.

    Hope this helps.
