Star Wars Battlefront

Audio performance is crackling and breaking up in the game. What should I do?

You may hear your audio start crackling or breaking up on some devices. If this occurs, we recommend that you upgrade to the latest drivers for your audio device. If this issue continues, you may also want to increase the size of audio streaming buffers using the command line option /audiomixbuffer followed by the size of the mixing buffer in milliseconds.

For example, battlefront.exe /audiomixbuffer 200 will ensure the minimum mixing buffer size used is 200 milliseconds or 0.2 seconds. If high-end audio hardware is being used, it is possible to specify very small buffer sizes (e.g. 20ms) to achieve lower latency (more responsive) audio in the game.

NOTE: Setting a smaller buffer size on some audio devices could result in higher processor load.
