    theres no in game sound, you hear the movies but nothing in game or when you click buttons on the option menu. I tried the xp compatability and even vista and the ingame sounds work but then the game only fills the top quarter of my screen, when i try to enlarge the res or any graphics settings the game freezes, i worked out that if i go into task manager and select enlarge it'l work but at the smaller ress and will freez after a short period of time could anyone offer any help with this?
    cheers ste

    Bioshock working in Windows 7 64bit

    Hi all,
    First time posting. I got Bioshock (Non Steam version) to work by doing this. I installed it while running the installer in Windows XP SP2 compatibility. Whether that makes a difference, I am unsure.
    Then to run the game, do this:
    Start Menu
    All Programs
    When you see Bioshock, right click and select Play - Direct X 9

    The game worked like a charm. I had audio and the game never froze.
    Good luck
