[RESOLVED] No voice sound while first Milton cutscene is playing


Recommended Posts

CLARIFICATION:  This issue refers to missing voiceover audio during the cutscene, when you are just watching and not in control of your character.  Not after.

When entering the Grey Mother's house I get the cutscene.  I can hear the gunshot, boards creaking underfoot, and wind noises.  But no voices at all.  I tried pressing ESC to breakout and reload the game but my progress was saved so I can't repro without restarting the story.  

Can I recover from this?  Rewind to before this point so I can experience this part of the story?   I have no idea what was said and I really want to know.  (If this answer is "start over", I'd do that just so I don't miss out.)

Where / how should I bug the issue?   I checked the Jira bug base and found I could file it there.  Attached dxdiag and ep1story1 files.  Let me know if you need more info.

Audio > Voice was the solution.  And I must add that the open world parts of the story are much better with voice too. :)

There's still a minor issue here, however.  I was able to hear dialog in the Astrid's Metal Case and Plane Crash cutscenes when Audio > Voice was set to zero, so the application of the setting is not consistent.

Well, I thought that the voice acting was for the cutscenes only, because when I start a conversation after the cutscene, the voices are gone. Is that the meaning? It makes sense, I guess?

I think that part is by design.  Just text for the various options, not voice.

The issue I encountered was within the actual cutscene: camera switching between the speakers, lips moving, but no voice sound.

I'm talking to  the first npc in Milton and voice is gone, major break of immersion

Yep that's when it happened for me.  What is your Audio > Voice setting, under Options?   Mine was turned all the way down.

Are the conversations supposed to be with voice, the ones where you chose a text an click "next"? Because I hear nothing then, breaks immersion indeed.

I don't think so.  My own issue was before that -- during the cutscene.
