    No sound in UT, long lag in doom3

    I just installed 10.10 beta. Sound is fine in most apps, but there is no sound at all in Unreal Tournament, and the sound in doom3 is very delayed - around 10 second lag.

    Anyone else seeing this, or know of a fix?

    There is a bug for this also in lucid actually

    For id software games , just use OSS instead of ALSA and it will work fine .

    When running the game add this line , for example :
    Code:
    quake4 +set s_driver oss
    Mind the spaces .

    Thanks for the response, Rajeev.

    Killing pulseaudio and using ~/.pulse/client.conf to prevent respawn got doom3 working (it was still configured for using alsa though).

    I didn't manage to get any sound in Unreal Tournament though. It doesn't seem to have any sound driver configuration but a README says it needs OSS.

    The odd thing is that both of these games worked perfectly in every version since Feisty until now.
