opted to use ogg files for my client. after testing my mate with windows 10 does not hear audio. im using win 7 for dev. is there a way to fix compatibility without going to wave file there is a massive difference in file sizes. just wondering if its a codec issue something that could be fixed easily or another way to fix compatibility. wave files are just to big to be in my binary.

I haven't (yet) run into compatibility issues with OGG (although consider that most of my testing experience up until recently has been with AGKV2, so perhaps there are differences). It was my understanding the AGK2/S handled what it needed internally for various sound formats. Perhaps there is a limitation with a specific sample format on a particular system configuration? You could try sending your friend a small test program that just plays a sound file, then send over various versions of a sample OGG file in different sample rates (Hz, kbps, stereo/mono, etc) that they can try to play on their system.

Might also help to make sure they've just checked the basics like they hear other sounds on their system indicating that they have their audio device properly enabled in Windows, speakers turned on, and the volume turned up.

If there is a compatibility issue in some way, I'd certainly like to find out and have it sorted also.

Try 44.1 KHz, 16-bit, Stereo - These are the most compatible settings that should be running on any system.

Not sure about studio, but I've used the 44.1 KHz, 32-bit (mono and stereo) OGG in classic with no problems.

Mono is not supported by android. In order to obtain compatibility for all systems you should avoid it.

I thought he said they were using Windows...that is good to know though.
