MSSpatial Could not activate SpatialAudioClient on XBox One

0 votes


I've integrated the MSSpatial plugin to our Unreal game. It is registered when I boot the Unreal Editor, and it works on PC. However, when I run my game on XBox One, I get this log for LogAkAudio:

What does this error means? I don't have the error lines following the Initialization complete message on PC builds. I also already made sure that my XBox devkit audio is configured such as the Headset format is set to Dolby Atmos for Headphones.
Any help would be much appreciated!
