Farcry 3 problems (sound issues)

i recently installed one of my favorite old games, far cry three, the graphics look amazing 1080 p medium works fine. however the audio is clicking about every second...constant clicking making it unplayable with audio.

i've used wine, i've used lutris with wine. steam wont launch it. it says failure to launch,
has anyone encountered clicking noises with direct x 11 games and if so any idea how to fix it? im guessing i need to change my audio subsystem software...

thanks in advance and happy holidays everyone

The clicking makes me think this isn't the issue but I know some times if I have no sound in a WINE game it's because the audio needs to be changed from pulse to alsa.

I have a script where I pass the game id as an arg which I've just labeled as GAMEID here to fix things that won't have audio in proton.

export WINEPREFIX="$HOME/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/compatdata/GAMEID/pfx" winetricks sound=alsa

Obviously you'd need to get your game ID and ensure your steam path is right compared to mine there but you get the gist.

No problem, though I did pull a DOH on the steam reference heh.
