OS: Arch Linux 64 bits, mostly up-to-date.
Proton 3.7.

No sound when trying to play Recettear. It seems to be a known issue on wine:

You have to install dsound and directmusic with winetricks to get audio working

Taken from here.

Not sure yet about the other problems described on that AppDB link.
Seems to mostly work ok from some minutes of experience.

I have this problem too, there is no sound. For now (Smiles and Gnolls) all monsters are appearing, I'll play further to see if there are problems with others and will test with the controller later.

System specs:

Edit: I chose to exit the game and I noticed the process was still running. I had to kill the process to truly close it.

Edit 2: I'm playing with controller (Redragon Seymour 2) and it seems perfect.

You should be able to install manually with winetricks:

WINEPREFIX=/home/doug/Storage/SteamLibrary/steamapps/compatdata/559100/pfx/ winetricks dsound directmusic

(just replace the path & appid)

I've made an issue about winetricks stuff over here: #54

@DougTy Hello, I've been able to run Recettear through wine perfectly with dsound and directmusic previously. Through Proton I've been having no audio as the issue described. I tried the fix you posted though, and now launching the game leads to a popping sound and a black screen with the process frozen.

Switching dsound and dmusic from Native to Builtin in winecfg makes the game run without sound again. Has anyone else had this problem?

I have this issue as well. Black screen with popping noises after installing dsound and/or directmusic.

@kisak-valve kisak-valve changed the title from No sound for Recettear to No sound for Recettear (70400) Aug 23, 2018

It appears that the people over at #696 are also having the same issues. directmusic, dsound, and black screens with popping noises.

The fixes above don't work for me at all. So far, nothing I've done has managed to get any audio in Recettear at all unfortunately.

Problem seems to be with wine's pulseaudio driver.

WINEPREFIX=... winetricks directmusic sound=alsa

The above makes the game playable with sound for me.

@ahodesuka Yes, that fixed it for me!
