I am not really sure if this is the correct place to post this, I have never used these forums before. If I am in the wrong place would someone please just redirect me.
I just bought a copy of Marvel Ultimate Alliance the other day. It runs fine. Everything seems to work. However there is no in game music or dialogue. Sound effects work, and there is music over the menus and cut scenes but no matter what I try in the menus there is no music or voices in the actual game itself in places where I know there should definitely be, having played the game before.
Looking around other forums, it seems it is something to do with the last system software update which I actually downloaded the day I got the game before I started playing... but i do not know what I should do.
I would really like to play this game and get the sound working so any help would be greatly appreciated.
I am actually using a surround sound system not plugged into a TV. Sorry if that complicates this.
I am using the optical digital output plugged into an amplifier.
However I am pretty sure it isn't a hardware issue because I do get sound out. The Playstation home page has sound and even the menus in the game have music over them it is just the Game play itself where to sound doesn't work.
For your second question I am not 100% sure what you mean. Do you want the menu where it says:
"Dolby Digital 5.1 Ch
DTS 5.1 Ch
Linear PCM 2 ....."
If so on my machine "Linear PCM 2 Ch. 44.1 kHz"
and "Linear PCM 2 Ch. 48 kHz"
Thank you so much for trying to help me.
Thank you all for the attention.
That sounded very promising however I am afraid it hasn't worked.
I checked both 5.1 boxes. I have also checked that sound is definitely coming out of my middle/centre speakers, and they are working.
I have searched the in game menus as much as I can, and there is unfortunately no option to changed the sound output.
In response to unchecking the other two "Linear" boxes as was suggested: those two are actually checked, but greyed out and I don't have the option to change them. :smileysad:
Sorry for being such a difficult case....
Do you have any idea what else I could try. I am determined not be defeated by this.
Try it by having the sound coming from your tv and unchecking all the boxes in the sound settings.
I tried the TV. It has he same problem of no music.
I have also changed to using the phono (red and white plugs.... I don't actually know what they are called which is embarrassing seeing as I use them all the time).
This has not worked either.
I have also now tried both optical and the (what I would call) phono at the same time and enabling simultaneous output in the sound options.
I have also looked at the settings on my amp in detail, and experimented with virtually every possible setting.
Also, this is the very first sound problem I have ever had with the Playstion.
What are the chances that this could be a software issue? I know this is really tricky but does anyone have any idea what else I can try?.
I tried them in both.
I was just using the composite directly, without a scart adapter.
And your right there was no picture, but I was only really using it as a sound test.
And I got the same sound issues I had through the amp, background effects but no music or dialogue.
Then I decided to see if I was asking too much of my not very good TV that I had just set up on the floor to test it. And I plugged the phono (is that what they are called by the way?) into the amp, and tried one more time. Still to no avail.
yes sorry i forgot to say.
I did try trevortm's suggestion.
This also had no success... :smileysad:
It is only this game. Everything else works fine on every game. Which is why I think there may be a software issue.
I will try what you say.
It will take a while tho my playstation is wired into a cabinet with my amp and there is no TV near by.
I shall return with results.
Right. that was easier to accomplish than I anticipated, however it hast solved the sound problems :smileysad:
I followed your instructions to the letter.
I have reset the audio and video settings by holding down the power button and checked it worked.
I have used the AV Multi out cable.
Using the 3 leads directly wasn't working (But I think I was the sockets on the TV are to fault no the lead)
So I used a scart adapter and I have both picture and Sound coming through to my TV now.
Everything seems to be working as it should...
However the same problem still persists. No Voices, or Music in Gameplay.
:smileysad: any other ideas?
Sorry for being so difficult
That sounded promising. It does look like a bug to me.
Unfortunately there is no data for this game in that folder. I didn't need an install when I started playing either.
Files for this particular game are only present in the Save Data Utility.
The Game Data Utility has no files for this.
Could it store them anywhere else?
Have you friend with a ps3 who would let you try your copy of the game on his/her ps3?
hmmmm not near by unfortunately, but as soon as the optertunity arises i shall try that.
That's a good idea thanks.
