I know the title is a duplicate of this: https://www.fmod.org/questions/question/systemsetoutput-after-studiosysteminitialize/

But I’m having a new special problem with the setOutput function. As Mathew Block states in the link, on windows you can change output mode after system::initialize. However, it does not seem to work properly. If I keep my default (FMOD_OUTPUTTYPE_WASAPI) output mode and then swap to FMOD_OUTPUTTYPE_NOSOUND_NRT after initialize. The “NRT”, non-realtime, part does not apply. My sound disappears, but it’s still in real time.

If I do it the other way around, set output mode to FMOD_OUTPUTTYPE_NOSOUND_NRT before initialize and then swap to FMOD_OUTPUTTYPE_WASAPI after initialize, the sound start playing, but it’s till in non-realtime mode. So it seems that you can change output mode after initialize (the getOutput even gives you the value you passed). But it will be locked to “non-realtime” or “realtime” respectively depending on what you chose before initialize.

I’m using 1.08.11, but I’ve looked though the change log of newer version and not found any related fix.
So is this a bug or I’m I using it wrong?

I use “raw” FMOD via the C# wrapper in Unity if that matters.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Mikael, thanks for your report. I’ve logged this issue as a bug and we’ll fix it in a future version. Cheers.

    Would you possibly have any ETA on this? I’m working on trying to restart the whole runtime while the game is running as a workaround, but it’s not working out too well, so to have this fixed would be really preferable!

    We don’t have an estimate just yet as it still requires some time to investigate.
