Adrift Sound Error "The File Exists"

Postby LJashin » Wed Oct 18, 2017 11:00 am

This error appears anytime the adrift runner attempts to play sound, before the user bbben attempted to help me out but we weren't successful. I can run adrift fine if I have sound disabled but I would like to resolve this problem. It seemed to work fine on my old computer that was running Vista a few years ago but on my new Win10 pc it has never worked. Any help is appreciated.

You would of tried uninstalling Adrift and re-installing it no doubt?

Have you tried running any other Adrift games that has sound?

Another suggestion is to try and run Adrift in compatibility mode as Win 7 or even Vista and see if that makes a difference as a work around.

Sorry if couldn't be of anymore help.

Which sound interface are you using? (View > Options > Advanced > Enabled Sound Interfaces) Does selecting/deselecting any of these fix the error?
