Sound fix for Windows 8.1 users
Straight to the point, the solution is:

-Go to Windows/System32
-Copy XAudio2_8.dll (Default for Windows 8.1)
-Paste it in the same directory
-Change the copy name to XAudio2_9.dll (this is the default one in Windows 10, I think that's the reason the game is only compatible with Windows 10)
-Problem solved

Sorry for the broken english, I hope it helps.

Thank you so much!

Hey people, thank you very much, I'm glad it helped!
I hope this issue is fixed properly.
Thank you! This worked for me on Windows 8.1.
LOL they pinned this topic? why do that on a game they only wanted win10 people to be able to play?

that being said, congrats on getting it to work and having your topic pinned, lets hope the other person gets win7 working.

It's not good idea make customers angry even if customers themselves fault for their problem. pinning doesn't require any work.
I have an XAudio2_7.dl in my system 32... you think if i made a duplicate called XAudio2_9.dlll and put in my system 32... would it run on Windows 7 ... I can't test it because I don't own the game

works great. what a disgrace that a fix this easy isn't implemented in the game by default.

game is for windows 10 only. audio file is from windows 10 when one causing problem is from windows 8.1. These are systems files so obviously there is problem and game won't change them
