Audio seems to be totally broken?

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

A development! I switch over to the Mac OSX side of my computer and load up the game via that dropbox link and the sound works?!

I am more confused than ever.

Updated all my drivers. Still can't get it to work. Any other insights?

I am going to download a bunch of different browsers

Edit:

So sound works when I use the latest version of safari! However html5 games in safari seem to run a lot slower...

Edit 2: Latest version of Firefox also works. I guess it's a problem with chrome. Interesting. Maybe I will submit a bug report?nihakue2012-05-03 16:54:19

Uhh... maybe the problem lies in the virtual environment?

Bootcamp isn't a virtual environment (i think), It's an actual windows installation. But I agree that bootcamp is what is causing the issue. Because chrome works on the mac side of things.nihakue2012-05-03 16:54:49

Ah it's Bootcamp. I really think that might be causing issues. maybe you need to report to Bootcamp?

I can confirm there's something wrong with audio.

This is a bit messy so bear with me:
- I was editing my game "!!Skeletor in Space!!" back home using r84.
Sounds worked on Chrome only. Not Firefox, not IE9, not Iron (Chrome alternative). Also, when playing on Android mobide Chrome, only ONE sound comes out (the shock sound).
- I noticed some other bugs, not sound related, so I installed a newer C2 version, r87, an re-exported and re-uploaded the game.
Audio remained the same as with r84 above.
- Now I am at work and upon testing the game, I noticed audio is pretty much broken for me:
--Chrome, Iron, Firefox only play the background ambiance "music";
--IE9 only play the laser sounds (and no ambiance)

The sound on the example provided by Nihakue did NOT work for me. Tested with r84 and r88.

If you all could PLEASE test my game also http://www.mangione.com.br/skeletorgame
Tell me if you hear any sound (or if audio is completely ok for you).

Works fine here, skeletors scream, the lazers and other effects all are heard.

Oh, just read the rest of the thread ( doesn't show when typing a reply haha ) - didn't realise you were running an emulator on a mac - do things like youtube/flash other web-based sounds work?

I think its the computer itself. You might not be doing anything wrong in your game since other computers can hear those sounds just fine (Haven't tested it in my PC btw :P).

I played Skeletor in space and all I could hear is the ambient sound; no scream, no lazer, nothin. Very interesting. Gamekill are you running windows 7 in a bootcamp environment as well?

@JohnnySix I can watch youtube videos just fine, and even other Construct2 games will work (for the most part. I have found a couple that only load music and not sound FX)

I will just have to test my games with firefox and hope that they are working in Chrome for most people. Thanks everyone for the help. Gamekill, maybe we can put our heads together and isolate the issue. nihakue2012-05-04 00:18:10
