[SOLVED] Game no have sound
I had played in February and I have all type of sounds. Now, no sound at menu game, no music sound in the game.

What's is happening with sound? (M1 SE have identical issue)

I use Steam with Wine at my Linux OS.

For Monkey 1 SE override XAudio2_4 to "Native (Windows)".
For Monkey 2 SE override XAudio2_6 to "Native (Windows)".

The problem is on your end, the sound works perfectly fine mate. I fix computers for a living, if you need help add me on steam.

The hardware of my computer is the same to the February.
The only change is the OS (major update of openSUSE).

It can be anything causing it, the problem is defo on your end.

The solution for Monkey 1 is override xaudio2_4 to Native (windows).

For Monkey 2 I can't find solution, yet.

What Windows are you using mate? Are you using a soundcard or onboard audio? The audio is fine for me on both games.

openSUSE Leap 15 (is a Linux OS) and have the audio fine before. But something in the install of Leap 15 leave me with no audio (solved en MI 1 SE only, for now).

Ah ok, Linux is prob part of the issue then, I use Windows and always have done. Linux is just not popular enough I guess so they don't put that much effort in to make things work correctly. Works fine on Win 7, 10 and even worked fine on Vista back when I had it on.

Reading again the first post of where I can find the solution to Monkey SE 1, it has made me think "if the soultion was the same or very similar...?".

I look in the subdirectories of the two games and in the installer's subdirectory I could see cabinets files (.CAB) with the name XAudio.

For Monkey 1 SE I could see inside XAudio.CAB the file Xaudio2_3.dll (runs ok the Monkey 1 SE with override to native XAudio2_4, yes 2_4 not 2_3).

For Monkey 2 SE I could see inside XAudio.CAB the file Xaudio2_6.dll and I think "If I add a override to Native for XAudio2_6 ...?"

Bingo! With the XAudio2_6 override to "Native (Windows)" I have sound again in Monkey Island 2 SE. :dentures:

Problem is solved!!

PS: Sorry for my English
