    i had the exact same problem, where ambient noises where playing, but as for gun shots, car sounds etc, absolutely nothing. the only way round it was to lower the hardware acceleration on the sound card to "standard" or whatever the option is. didnt have an impact on performance, and didnt seem to change in game sounds either, so thats my 2 pence worth. :)

    hope this helps.

    I had that problem.

    All i did was change my speaker settings from 5.1 Surround to 4 speakers.

    it's because the speech uses the center speaker but for some reason, yours doesnt work, so you have to disable that speaker altogether so that the sound will be directed to your other ones.

    I had the same problem (sound vanishing during rain/thunder), which was fixed by dropping the hardware sound acceleration to its lowest setting. On patching the game, i found i could put it back to max without the problem recurring.
