Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

ARK Survival Evolved NO SOUND and CRASH on Normal Mode?

My system specs are as follows (Alienware assembled on 24th November 2014):

i7-4980HQ @2.8 GHZ (4.0Ghz turbo)

32GB RAM

8GB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 880M

120Hz 3D-Full HD Screen

I play ARK Survival Evolved with barely 40 fps in Medium!!! Plus, I have to run the game on Low Memory Settings (4GB)...I have 32 GB of RAM!! Game crashes almost immediately after running it on Normal Mode.

A similar friend has another Alienware 17 (assembled on 20th September 2014):

i7-4700HQ @2.4 GHZ (3.5Ghz turbo)

16GB RAM

8GB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 880M

120Hz 3D-Full HD Screen

And he plays ARK Survival at around 30 to 40 fps on EPIC and on Normal Mode perfectly fine, although he has lower RAM than I do.

Can I know what am I doing wrong here? Overclocking the CPU didn't do as much, my drivers and all are updated.

PS: I have no sound in the game as well (I did everything possible to fix that, including reinstalling the game, verifying game files, even reinstalling windows 8.1 and updating drivers and so on), later on I knew that i get no sound in any game made in Unreal Engine. [Updating to Windows 10 didn't fix the sound issue]
