fresh gog install sound works perfect but if i patch it then no sound at all and the in game sound slider says 0% i changed it and the music slider resets to 0% on clickng anywhere and the other changes (ambient and game) do not save on sound menu close .. so i went into the games config folder and put it to 50% and after relaunching it now says 5000% and acts identical with no sound atall. this is no mods windows 10. checked that the game is not muted in anyway. reinstalled tried again its the patch causing he sound blackout. 'update' ~ two terraria exe in terraria main dirctory "Terraria.exe" "Terraria_126.96.36.199.exe" one works flawless no mod menu.. one has mod menu loads silently.. now its suddenly working with sound.. mby alt tab fixed it ?? wtf is going on. lool more testing
The Terraria.exe is the one that was patched and that is why it shows the mod menu. The Terraria_188.8.131.52.exe is a backup of the unpatched Terraria.exe so users can still play unmodded if they wish.
I've just rechecked patching a fresh install on Windows 10 and didn't have any of the sound issues you experienced. The patching process is very simple as these things go and if patching works is very unlikely to introduce bugs of its own. If I had to guess, perhaps it was something in that version of TML, something inherent in the GOG version, or something particular to your computer. Since you say that it started working after alt-tabbing, it was most likely some weird combination of things that has worked itself out. At least it is working for you now.
