I cannot stand not being able to hear someone when I am playing, Friend forces mumble upon us all because it is open source and good for the environment and so on....
In vent audio is fed through center channel only. I have tried turning the positional audio settings on/off, messing around with every single audio related setting in the client and there is nothing I have been able to do to force the audio as not coming in through the left/right channels. It is supposed to be a 5.1 setup, but comes in as a 2.1 as many others have reported before, but again... There is no way to force the audio as "non-positional" and use the much easier to hear/less crowded center channel.
Please fix this!
I attached a DXDiag, but short version is:
Logitech 5.1 x-540 speakers set up to onboard motherboard audio. This has happened on at least 2 separate motherboards of completely different brands and chipsets. One was a gigabyte 790GX and the one currently is an MSI 990FX-GD80
