Sound cutout bug more common

Recommended Posts

happened twice within 10mins, first one 1/4 way through sweden daily event, 2nd after reboot, similar time on AI daily.

This is getting common place for me, never had an issue until over the past week since patch 1.3 released.

Someone mentioned this in a thread, can't remember where, and it works. If the sound bug happens (I'm on Xbox) just pause the game, go to settings on your console --> Display&Sound --> Audio output --> Optical audio and turn it off, then turn it on again, resume your game and you can finish the stage, the audio will be back again. At least on Xbox this worked for me.

Yes, can confirm this works everytime. I'm on X-Box One S and do this workaround since a few days.

Kudos to @Jake Cushing, he found the workaround.

 

While I don't have the impression it happens more often lately, it really is annoying.

Had it 3 times yesterday, but the 2 days before not.

Already had it 2 times today within an hour.

It's just completely random.

No, it hasn't happened very often to me either. I had the impression it only happened when I was quite happy with my run, and to make it more annoying only in the last sector of the stage :classic_laugh:

Yeah it seems completely random, unfortunately it doesn't look like it's a reproducible bug.

That really shouldn't matter.

If the game would crash every few hours randomly, wouldn't Codemasters do everything to find the issue?

It's game breaking and unfair. If it happens in a good run, even with the workaround, you are out of rythm the moment it happens.

With a game like this, where you really need Audio for revs and co-driver calls to be competitive, such a bug is pretty unfair, because everything is based around leaderboards.

Imagine it would happen in a eSports tournament in the finals or something...

 

And...I think it is reproducible.

They just have to play the game long enough while having a tool running that tracks everything.

I simply don't believe I'm the only one out there who get this issue every few hours.

It's been happening to me more often as well. I switched to a USB sound card which kept it from happening until the last update but now it happens at least once a day.

It’s a tricky bug to fix because of its unpredictability.

I know it’s being worked on and investigated (it’s one of the top bugs on our list) but a fix won’t make it in time for Version 1.7.

For someone who is heavily effected by this bug (got it 3 times today), this was the only thing I wanted to hear.

I can live with it not making it in 1.7, if it needs more time, so be it.

At least the team doesn't give up fixing it.

You just have to exit and open any other screen and come back.

It is crucial you pause it in a good spot! lol

Yeah but it makes no big difference as you're out of rhythm anyway. Going to try this when it happens again.

If it helps, it apparently onle happens (or it happens more commonly), on the longer, +9km stages. At least, those are the only stages I've encountered the bug (specially New Zealand and Poland, and one time in Wales).
