no footstep sounds
I can hear everything other than people's footsteps.  I tried restarting several times and the problem is still there.

Have you tried restarting the PC itself?
Or toggle on and off the device driver for your sound, or even update the driver?
The game can sometimes corrupt its audio device and only full restarts or driver disabling will fix it.

Ye I had it in DFO a couple of times, but I think I always fixed this with going into the audio settings from my audio device and either turn off any "virtual 5.1" stuff, emulation, "insert fancy feature here" or set the audio mode to stereo if it was on 3D sound.  (Head phones)

Especially the noise of footsteps was always different for me, people often told me that they hear footsteps, while I couldn't at all.

It's a legacy bug from the original game. Rebooting your PC fixes it 99/100 times.

When i logged in today the problem was fixed, so most likely the PC restart fixed it.  Today in mid game the foot steps went away from my wife's PC.  Seems like this is a more common problem these days.

I don't even notice it if it happens.  May apply to other longtime super tiny bugs.  My favorite is sliding as if I'm falling as I sprint.  Almost like the falling as you rest, but I think that was fixed.

Happens rarely and takes a system reboot which makes me think its some kind of driver mismatch and if your two computers had it happen on the same day further supports this.
