    just started playing the game and I’m at the part where i free mia from the basement and the audio is completely out of time and sync with what appears on screen. My drivers are all up to date so don’t know what can be causing the problem. I’m playing the game with every thing maxed out at 4k super resolution.
    My specs: i7 5820k
    r9 390
    16 gb ram
    gigabyte x99 ud3 mobo

    This ain’t the first time i had audio issues with resident evil games i noticed resident evil 6 (which i never fished cause it sucked) had some issues too from what i can remember and i played that game on a gtx 760 and i5 4570 and it seems capcom didn’t put any effort into fixing the bugs that plagued there engine.

      it’s working now for some reason. Think the 30 fps cap at max resolution scaling caused some problems so i toned it down from 2 to 1.8 and disabled the cap and it’s working fine for the most part. some micro stutters here and there but nothing too major fingers crossed.
