FIX for No Sound during Diplomacy under Windows 10

    For some Windows 10 users, they experienced cutting in and out of various sounds when engaging in Diplomacy with other civs. As requested, I made a special topic with the fix. In the Steam discussions, a guy posted what worked for him and since it worked for others there, I decided to re-post it here. There was the same success for the people that tried it here and it was then recommended to have a special sticky topic for easy access.

    I will now quote his words:

    "I fixed this by downloading this ---> http://www.indirectsound.com/

    Put the two files in the zip in the "Conquests" folder. I've used this for a lot of older games to enable direct sound in Win 10. In this case it seems to fix a channel issue in the game under Win 10 recent update where sounds are limited to just 2 channels. Putting this in the directory allows multiple channels again so that you can hear diplo music and sound effects without them cutting out due to having no open channel to go in to."

    To see its success, go here: https://forums.civfanatics.com/threads/no-sound-during-diplomacy.615825/#post-14900887

    Special thanks to him!

    Thank you! Just found this thread and had the problem where my speakers screech every time the diplomacy screen pops up. Was worried it was going to blow them out someday. Fixed it.
