Hi maniacs I'm new here, play CoD2 Multiplayer every day, but my onboard sound card is no more and when starting the game it says: ------- sound system initialization ------- Attempting 44 kHz 16 bit stereo sound couldn't initialize 2D provider: waveOutOpen() failed. Error during initialization: EXE_ERR_MSS_INIT_FAILED_MP icon_cry.gif I go to config file, set something audio to 0 and something sound from 44Hz to 0, but the error is the same. I will buy sound card next 1-2 days, but I want to play the game in this time, is it posible or not? Some tweaks in windows (i'm now on Vista) or in files in the game dir? I'm not a noob with PC, so i think there is a way to disable the sound in the game? Please post some info, everything will be isefull icon_smile.gif (sorry for bad english, is not my native language)

Basically, a sound card is required to play COD2. Even if you wanted to turn your sound off, it still requires one to run.

Hence, your error messages.

Yes, I know that. But I want to find a way to disable the sound in the game and then sound card will not be required, no? :rolleyes:
