No sound after downloading 3/12 update?

5 replies 764 views Edited Mar 13, 2013

After downloading the Sound Shapes update on March 12, the game doesn't make any sound. Is anyone else having this problem? Any suggested fixes? I've already deleted, re-downloaded, and re-installed the game without any effect. No other game is having this problem. (I have a 120GB slim PS3.)

 

As you can imagine, Sound Shapes just doesn't work as a game without any sound. Any help or advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

I did. They suggested re-installing and then directed me to the forum. Smiley Sad

 

In fairness, this doesn't seem to be a widespread problem, and if it's something funny just on my system, it's difficult to diagnose remotely. But it's more than a bit of a bummer to have to abandon the game.

Hi. Happy to help. What are your audio output settings on your PS3?

 

Try forcing it to 2CH Stereo.

I turned off the 5.1 output, and I get sound from the game again, so thanks.

 

I do have to say that while I do really appreciate the help, it's troubling to have to either adjust the sound output every time I want to play Sound Shapes, or to sacrifice 5.1 sound for every other game I play. Reading through the other posts in the forum, I understand why Sound Shapes may only offer stereo output, but some sort of compatibility with 5.1 output would really be appreciated.

 

Thank you again.

This worked for me too...not sure why this issue cropped up with the most recent update, but switching off 5.1 fixed the problem.
