Help! My game won't launch. Whenever I launch it, a pop-up window appears and says "Failed to initialize sound device. Is OpenAL installed?" I've narrowed it down to two things. 1, OpenAL is installed and won't load the game, or B, OpenAL isn't installed. if option A, what do I do, and if option 2, what do I do

 

BACKGROUND:

 

I've been able to use this before (like a lot... more than I feel is good for me...). It never has had any problems. I've also downloaded games for leadwerks, where it makes me install OpenAL, and have installed OpenAL before. But I have a timeline and need to finish my game for a school competition and now am feeling super rushed.

 

PLEASE HELP ME!

openAl seems to be installed automatically with Leadwerks. At least on windows machine it is.

you can try installing it yourself - the installer is located here (assuming youre using windows): C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Leadwerks Game Engine\_CommonRedist\OpenAL\2.0.7.0\oalinst.exe

Yeah I had the issue , too.

The problem was that I did no had any device enabled, that plays audio from your pc.

try to take a look at the hardware and sound (win7), or just put your headset in or speaker if not.
