Hello BIS,

I have a sound problem, presumably due to the beta patches.

Situation (a couple of months back):

-City Life RPG with beta = ingame sound lowered so much I could barely hear a thing
-City Life RPG without beta = ingame sound was at a normal level


-City Life RPG requieres a beta to join, thus I cannot hear anything (or too a super quiet lvl). Before, untill january, not entirely sure though, I didn't have any sound problems with the beta patches. I don't have any problems with other mods and whilest not using the beta. So the sound volume is normal there.

So in general: I assume the betas break my ingame sound and nearly mute my game. Current beta: 1.59.83569

HID ATI 4850 512Mb

Might be related to fadeSound (maybe a fixed regression of #2243 or a new bug). Can you check the mission if it employs any fadeSound script commands?

Theory would be, that fadeSound was (intermediately) not working properly until recently and thus it's (muting) effect just got largely boosted.

If you find any occurrences of fadeSound, comment them to see if anything changes.

I doubt it has something to do with any mission, but I will ask. I have this problem on multiplayer, in the editor, armory, even the main menu! It affects the VOIP, music, environment sounds etc. And I've had it for with quiete some beta patches, since january I'm estimating. Before, the betas worked fine.

When I run Combined Operations + 1.59 final patch (and other mods) I have no problems. Same problem I had when using 1.57 a couple of months back. Final patch no problems, beta = barely hearable sound.

if it was fadeSound every one would equally be effected by it and thats not the case he is the only one with this issue to my knowledge. Maybe its a sound driver issue thats conflicting with the game you might wanna try an old version of your sound drivers and maybe post your sound system details so that BIS can review and maybe replicate and fix

I think I got it to work after reinstalling the sound drivers of my motherboard.

I guess the problem was on my side then.
