Startup Audio Issue With Client

This may not be the biggest issue but I feel like I should still post it.

I recently upgraded to Windows 10 and now whenever I open up the Roblox Client I hear a quick (less than a second), loud, white noise. This also happens when I start any type of test in studio. This hasn’t happened to me before I upgraded to Windows 10 and so far does not happen with any other program I have.

I have a Sony Vaio laptop with a Realtek HD Audio.

Two other people brought this up (one, two), and sadly the response was:

For now we’ll just have to wait until more people upgrade to Windows 10 so that there are enough people using it that ROBLOX feels the need to support it. It’ll eventually happen. It’s actually caused by bad drivers though:

I’d imagine the Realtek drivers aren’t all too compatible with Windows 10. You could try updating your audio driver though, because I’ve heard that sometimes Windows 10 replaces some drivers with generic drivers when you update, so your Realtek driver might have gotten replaced with something not entirely what it was supposed to be. Updating your drivers might fix that by getting you the correct driver.

@Echo. It’s not the drivers.
it also only happends when using roblox studio.
I have windows 10, and i have all the latest drivers.
Eather realtek doesn’t support w10 good, or it’s roblox’s side.

Would running in compatibility mode help at all? The audio is very loud and very startling.

Doing this seems to work. I have tried it a few times.

We are not 100% sure it’s an issue with drivers but there were reports from other people for other games about the same problem. It could be an FMOD incompatibility as well, I guess, if those games happen to use the same FMOD version we’re using.

There have been multiple reports of this bug on the forum already, so you aren’t alone.
Like zeuxcg said, this is most likely a driver problem with Windows 10.

However, I’m not sure if this is a problem with FMOD. I actually tested this on Roblox’s 2008 client, and I got the same result.
Unless they are using the same version of FMOD as they were back then, its probably unrelated.

I’m honestly thinking about rolling back to Windows 7 at the moment, because Windows 10 is having a ton of driver problems that are becoming hard to ignore.

I was about to make a thread about this. :frowning:

Same. It gets me the worse when I’m listening to music.

I’ve only had problems with ROBLOX and Dark Souls II. :frowning: Try [strike]to[/strike] the compatibility mode thing.

We upgraded quite a few times since then. I think our current version is semi-recent but maybe they had W10 compat fixes - we’ll check.
Also, wow. How do I get a Roblox 2008 client?

Step 1. time travel to 2008
Step 2. install roblox on your computer
Step 3. ???
Step 4. profit

I have a 2008 client on one of my computers as well. I installed the client in 2008, and the computer hasn’t seen the internet in quite a long time.

If I am correct, Merely has a set of the installers for some of the older clients. May want to ask him.

Oh, hey! We should upgrade. We’ll do this ASAP.

I believe this site has a download. Not sure if this is where clone got his though.

Edit: Nor do I know if it’s safe or even the true 08 client. I downloaded it and haven’t seen a problem yet so I’m going to assume it’s alright.

I think theres a build archived on web.archive.org somewhere (just before automatic updates were implemented)
I’ll try and upload the build onto github if I still have the files.
