But that's just what me and a couple of other people had to do. May be possible he had the same case?

Also, I know you aren't the person to be talking to about this. But, Whenever cait has her passive stacks up and she has the bulls eye thingy she doesn't damage the inhibitor. Not sure why I havn't had the chance to try and repeat the bug but it happened in a ranked game yesterday thought I would say something about it.

I think the fact that Swan is posting way faster than any Red I've seen before confirms his excitement

I'm all for sound, and music was mentioned. Does this mean we'll get new soundtracks in-game or more frequent login screens?.

Looks like we didn't understand each other.

Problem 1 occurs when:
5.1 in audio drivers + only using headphones (so left and right channel) = i can't hear anything that's currently at the bottom of the screen (because there are no speakers behind me). I guess you could say that's intended and more a driver issue than game issue.

So that wouldn't really bother me BUT... and here's problem number 2:
5.1 in audio drivers -> Start game -> change drivers to 2.0 (in case I'm not clear enough) = Sound broken. NO SOUND IN GAME. Only way to fix it is to exit the game and reconnect.

I just want to say, that summoner name is pretty fantastic imo, not that BelligerentSwan will see this, but great name.

i found this thread because i had a "great idea" of writing a positional audio plugin for mumble, lol already totally made and supported.

audio is so cool.

belligerent swan, i have a ton of questions about stereo imaging. In particular it seems like most of it is based on what early electronics could do easily, rather then how the ears work. if u ever wanna talk algorithms our mumble server is:

mumble.wetfish.net
