    do you have sound for other things like playing a cd?
    If not then check all cables and connections
    check you havnt muted the sound control panel
    check your volumn controls.
    If only in game check sound hardware section in setup and in game and check your config file in main folder- check link in my sig to config settings

    EDIT- In future you will probably get better advice if you post in community help for technical problems

    good luck

    Don't panic, this seems to happen to some folks sometimes. Open your Ubi Soft folder, it's in "program files" which you acces by clicking on "my Computer" and then whichever hard drive you installed FB on. My bet is that somehow, the sound got turned off in your configuration settings. This used to happen to me all the time. This is what I'd check first, to see if this solves your problem-

    Double click the Ubi Soft folder, and then the game folder

    Inside that folder is a file called 'conf', which is your configuration settings

    Open it with notepad, and scroll through the list slowly.

    You are looking for a line called SoundUse, it should look like this "SoundUse=1"

    It is in the section labelled [sound]

    Actually, here is my whole conf file, so you can get the idea, I've put the line you're looking for in yellow:

    Chuck - Do you know the X, Y, Z profiles are for IL-2 Sturmovik (not for Forgotten Battles) ?

    Really? I couldn't say. That's copied and pasted directly from my FB file- I don't even have the original Il-2 installed on this PC
