Same issue here with the menu music. Haven't actually tried to see if sound effects work yet.

same. Any fix?

Well, I actually got the soundtrack off Steam too so I just played the game while listening to that. Doubless it's not the same, but I guess it kind of worked. I do want a proper fix before I replay it though, so any info would be much appreciated. (Obviously, tried all the stuff mentioned in Stickies and whatnot.)

I saw this fix in another forum about the same bug, and it worked for me:

"The Readme in the game's directory recommends the following:

"If you get an error saying "Error defining external function"
please install the file in the "folder redist" and then
restart your computer."

In other words, go into the game's directory (mine is): C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\hotline_miami go into the folder called redist and install the app inside.
Also, if you haven't already update your .NET to 4.0 and relaunch the game.

P.S Don't forget to run the game with steamworks off."

Also, try enabling beta, I like the beta a lottt more than the current version, it enables a customized resolution setting among other things.

I have tryed every fix. Running the redist.exe, updating my .NET, re-downloading / re-installing / restarting. Nothings worked. Still crashes after 'Do you want to enable steam works' message or opens without sound.
Any official word on a fix?
