    Hi,

    Running Windows 10 on my pc and Windows 8 on a laptop, I also had the diplo-sound problem on both

    I tried to follow the solution given in this post, but then I did have no sound at all in the game :sad:
    I also modified the registry as explain there: http://www.indirectsound.com/registryIssues.html
    Same result :(

    I fixed it by first installing a directX update that can be found here:
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/confirmation.aspx?id=8109

    Please note that:

    1 - during the update setup, the folder requested is only a temporary folder where the update will extract files. You then have to browse manually to this folder to launch the setup
    2 - even after the update, you still have to setup the 2 files indicated in this post in the conquests folder

    Hope that it can help :)

    Thanks very much for posting this fix, Nathiri. I thought it was my brain finally cracking.
