Star Wars Battlefront

What are the different audio option modes available from inside the game?

There are different Mixer, Output, and Effects modes available in the Audio Options menu depending on the sound card installed. The sound engine for Star Wars Battlefront has a total of four different mixer configurations:

  • Software with Effects: Star Wars Battlefront has its own software sound-mixing engine with effects processing. This enables a computer with a sound card that does not support hardware mixing and hardware effects to use effect processing. The speaker configurations available in this mode are:

    • Mono

    • Headphones

    • Stereo

    • Dolby Pro Logic II

  • Software with No Effects: When using this mode, mixing is performed by the DirectSound mixer. The available mixer configurations available are:

    • Mono

    • Headphones

    • Stereo

    • Dolby Pro Logic II

    • Quadraphonic

    • 5.1

    • 7.1

  • Hardware with Effects: This can only be selected if hardware mixing and EAX compatible effects are available on your sound card. When using this mode, mixing and effects processing are performed by the sound card or in the sound cards driver.

  • Hardware with No Effects: This mode can only be selected if hardware mixing is available on your sound card. The mixing is performed by the sound card or in the sound cards driver.

NOTE: The Output Modes for the hardware mixer are the same as software with effects disabled, with the exception that you have Surround as an option rather than Dolby Pro Logic II. Surround is an analog encoding method that outputs two channels (front left / right), which must be decoded using an external decoder for multi-channel output.
