This is intermittent. I'm playing on Win10 x64 (recent clean install- May 2019 build) using the MasterMind patch that was updated with the input field fix. The sound works fine. But I get this error intermittently. I do have sound drivers installed (and I get sound). Has anyone else experienced this? I'm hoping there are people on here who know of an actual fix as opposed to just throwing various driver updates at the problem. I have the DirectPlay legacy component installed. I've seen an older thread about this (circa 2009) that seemed to be inconclusive. Perhaps in the last decade or so since then there may be new info.
