Kingdom Come: Deliverance – No sound? Try this

If you’re having troubles with no voices, a “fishbowl” effect, or no sound altogether while playing Kingdom Come: Deliverance, try this quick and easy fix. It might work or it might not, the only way to know for sure is to give it a shot. It’s worth noting that this can – and should – be done without closing KC:D.

This will only have a chance of working on PC, so if you’re playing it on a console you’re effectively SOL and the only thing that will help you is a patch.

If you’re running Windows 10, try this:

1.) Right-click the speaker icon beside the clock

speaker icon

This one

2.) Click “Troubleshoot sound problems”
3.) Select your audio source and run through the troubleshooter

That’s pretty much it. The first thing the troubleshooter will tell you to do is turn off any audio enhancements, you should do this anyway because the audio enhancements usually aren’t great. If you know that yours are off, skip this step. Next, it might ask to play some test sounds, if you’re sure your speakers are working you can skip this step as well. The next step will likely be the success message telling you something like “wrong driver” or maybe “not set as default”, either way, you should have audio in-game now.

If you just changed your settings and lost all audio, you’ll still have to run the troubleshooter but you can skip each step and it should still fix the problem. This has been happening to me every time I change the settings, so I’m assuming it’s happening to others as well.

Like I said in the first paragraph, this quick fix might work or it might not, there’s no way of knowing without trying! I apologize in advance if this doesn’t work because I know it won’t work for everyone. That being said, I’ll keep doing some research and with any luck I’ll be able to discover more fixes – if you find something posted elsewhere that helps, drop a link in the comments so other people can check it out!

Hopefully a patch is rolled out sooner than later to fix these bugs, but if nothing else it’s seemingly easy enough to fix, or it should be for some people. Just, please, do not download anything from scammy looking websites that promise to fix your game with some magical .exe file – there’s been A LOT of them popping up lately. Chances are, that’s malware or something else nefarious and not something you want on your PC. Only download patches etc from official sources!

On another note, if you’re like me and you got sick of the vanilla aiming reticle check out one of these 4 mods, one of them will definitely do what you’re looking for.

This is ironic… I did all steps in this guide, and the game stop crashing on the starting video, everything allright… The problem is that only happen if the troubleshooter disable the PC audio. At the moment I enable it, game crashes again Y-Y

this worked for me… the troubleshooter said something about my audio format not being set as default and then the sound started to work. how do i set the audio format to default so this doesnt happen again?

Mine said the same but still didn’t work.

Didn’t work. I have tried literally every guide and trick but nothing works. Completely reinstalled all my drivers, reinstalled KC:D 3 times now, downloaded unofficial patches from sketchy Russian websites but with no avail. I’m getting really frustrated that I might not be able to play KC:D at all on my holiday week.

In my case it was a driver issue. I switched to headphones (HyperX as they use their own driver) and it ran flawlessly. For whatever reason it just hated the onboard Realtek HD driver.
