When you updated your drivers for the sound card did you first uninstall the old ones, rebooted and then installed the new ones? Did you install OpenAL after you had reinstalled the new drivers? If not for both please try that

This may actually be a problem with certain versions of the OpenAL DLL.

Mentioned here: http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lib.openal/4944
Code: http://permalink.gmane.org/gmane.comp.li...devel/2062

It could be helpful if people experiencing the problem posted the file version of the OpenAL32.DLL file in the Windows\System32 directory. For example, I am not experiencing the issue, and have version 6.14.357.19.

It is possible that some another game using OpenAL installed a different version of the library which lacks these functions, and the installer included with Penumbra did not overwrite it.

Some other thing to try: Could you delete the 'wrap_oal.dll' file in the folder where the game is installed and then run the game again?

burbble, yeah, that is what I suspect, but it is pretty difficult to know whats going wrong in every particular case since some people get the error in the game but not in the test.

Just want to say something, maybe interesting for the developers Wink

I got an "Creative Audigy 2 ZS" with the latest drivers and i didn't install these OpenAL drivers when the installer asks you after game installation and yes - the game just started perfectly and sound was working correct.

Does the Creative drivers contain these OpenAL drivers or why it worked for me?

I registered, just to say it. I had the same problem. The ASource or something. I deleted the "wrap_oal.dll" with "OpenAL32.dll", And it works for me. If it doesn't work. First: Install the Game with the OpenAL32. Second: Try to start the game. If you get the message, delete these 2 files. NOT BEFORE THE START OF THE GAME! Well, I hope it helped you, as it helped me. Peace! !!!Make sure you backup these 2 files!!!
