leme guess...., usb headset?

Regardless, even on win7 with a normal headset I have to restart the game sometimes to get sound back. No clue what causes it but it's very rare and when it happens it's just RW as I can ALT-Tab and still hear all audio from everything else running. Sorry I don't have an answer but if it is usb... I know what I'd do with it hehe

I've been running Windows 10 since it came out, and I've had this issue twice. I fixed it both times by re-installing the Realtek driver thing, so I don't think it's a problem with just Rimworld.

Sounds..... fishy

You tried 3 different operating systems on the same pc or different pc's entirely? Honestly doubt it's the OS anyways but if it's doing it on 3 different pc's then it pretty much has to be a RW issue. That or the audio gods just like toying with you.

Same old same old...... I had xp for ages for that same reason. Never even tried vista or the others between xp and 7. Honestly been very happy with win7 for the most part. Gonna take alot to get me to buy anything else.  :)

Bugger, that sounds a lot like they're not updated to work with W10 architecture.
Dontcha just love new operating systems?..
