    Exclamation 7.1 Surround Sound Does Not Work

    I have a 7.1 surround sound audio setup (basically I use a HTPC to play RIFT). Only 5.1 works for RIFT currently.

    Any plans to implement full 7.1?

    Is there any way to force 7.1 in the RIFT.cfg file?

    7.1 is really more of a gimmick. Its a 5.1 with a matrix surround for the other 2 speakers. 5.1 is more than enough to get your surround you need.
    7.1 was only intent for bluray, and still very little movies even have 7.1

    It's not a gimmick and my receiver plays the raw PCM files (no matrixing). There are plenty of newer games (and older) with excellent 7.1 surround (Ie wow and fallen earth).
