Sound configuration

Post by big_mama » Mon Oct 15, 2018 7:48 am

I have the following situation:

Two sound devices:
- onboard sound chip
- external sound card

Both work perfectly in wine, however there is a problem with the speaker configuration.
In Doom (using proton/wine 3.16) when using the onboard sound, I get stereo output.
With the external card however I get surround sound even though I changed the speaker configuration from 4.0 to stereo in the prefix. But since I'm using headphones I need it to be stereo.

So, does the setting have any effect? Is there any workaround?
