No sound / pinned solution doesn't work.

Hello, I have just recently downloaded this game and everything works flawlessly except for the sound. I can hear menu music, loading songs, and the sound it makes when you scroll and select a new weapon and that is it. Very rarely I can hear a jet fly by. I tried using the bfv-sound-fix mod but when i run the executable it opens and closes right away and nothing happens. I tried running the game in every compatibility mode possible and nothing has seemed to work. Any ideas on what might work? Thanks!

As I said above, that solution has done nothing for me unless im doing something wrong.
Copy the SoundFix folder in the same folder where you have the BFV files (this is what I did and it worked for me in January.) Run the Install file as Administrator. Make sure your Windows virus & security ransomware protection is turned off. (Turn it back on after running the install file.) Hope this helps.

Still no luck getting the sounds working? :(
Windows 10 is famous for not supporting many old games, and with each next update it seems like it's getting even worse..

There are many possible reasons behind it, so it's hard to say what is the cause. I have looked through similar problems our users have ever encountered, maybe you can find something helpful here:

You can also try next method. Not sure if it would work for you, but let's try!

Go to settings folder inside your Battlefield Vietnam directory (for example, C:\Program Files\EA GAMES\Battlefield Vietnam\Mods\BfVietnam\settings) and open Default.con. Inside you will see something like this:

Code:
rem *** for BC
rem Game.GameLevelPath BFVietnam/Levels/Operation_Irving/

Game.useMenu 1
Game.useHud 1
Game.menuMain BattlefieldMenu
Game.menuInGame InGame
Game.menuMap Map
Game.DebugCallbackDisabled 0

run AliasedCommands.con

softRun ../../../Tools/Editors/Editors.con
You will need to add after Game.DebugCallbackDisabled 0 one of the following lines:
Game.soundbuffersize 400
Game.soundbuffersize 1000
Sound.soundBufferCacheSize 400
Sound.soundBufferCacheSize 1000


So it would look something like this:

Default.con said:
rem *** for BC
rem Game.GameLevelPath BFVietnam/Levels/Operation_Irving/

Game.useMenu 1
Game.useHud 1
Game.menuMain BattlefieldMenu
Game.menuInGame InGame
Game.menuMap Map
Game.DebugCallbackDisabled 0
Game.soundbuffersize 1000

run AliasedCommands.con

softRun ../../../Tools/Editors/Editors.con
Try each of these 4 configurations one by one, you will also need to re-launch the game every time you apply changes to Default.con file.
If nothing works, you can also experiment with values between 1~1000 (200, 500, 700, etc).

I really appreciate all the help but I have tried everything here and I even took the time to test every number in intervals of 100 and nothing.

Have you tried to update your sound drivers to the latest version available? Or roll it back to previous versions otherwise?
