    So I bought the game awhile back and somehow never really noticed it didn't have sound (probably because I used to play with music a lot where game sound wasn't really needed). So I started up to day realized I have no sound, I checked the command prompt thing and it said:

    "Failed to create directsound8 object...
    Could not startup sound engine."

    Any idea what is wrong?

    Err I'm afraid to download that, seems like it wanted to download driver detective with it and that basically just shoots a whole bunch of malware onto your PC. O-o

    I guess you should update DirectX then.

    Hmm, could you try installing it from kag2d.com instead of using Desura. Just to see if that might be the problem..
