Diablo® III

Music keeps restarting...

Posts: 10
Hey guys, I'm having this really annoying problem where the in-game music keeps restarting randomly. The game stutters every time this happens but the weird part is some times I will be playing for a while with no problems and at other times it seems as if every 5-10 seconds the music of the current area (either in-game or in the menus) restarts and is also accompanied by hiccups/game stuttering. Any ideas?

I'm having the same problem as of yesterday. I hadn't played the games since the last patch until yesterday and that's when I started having problems.

Using a Mac. I also updated to Mountain Lion, but doubt that has anything to do with it.

Seeing as how this hasn't been addressed thus far I'm guessing it won't be. If either of you found a solution then please let me know, it's really irritating.

Quest dialogue is even getting cut off when the followers talk, and not from clicking out of it. It's like all sounds get reset. Possible sound card issue? Might as well just turn everything down and listen to diablo II music.

Me too. 10.8.2. Music restarts about once every 1 second. In the menus as well. Launching into the game works, but it stutters every time the music restarts (about once a second or faster). Unplayable this way, what's going on? It was working when I last played (August?) but then I played again today for the first time, DL'd ~145 MB update, and now it's broken.

Exactly the same thing over here...

Sound restarts accompanied by a super stutter... Really negatively impacts the experience.

Problem started with 1.08.

I also can play for 15-20 minutes alone and not have it happen, but as soon as I play with a group of 3 it happens almost instantly.

I have a feeling it has to do with a specific sound playing, or when too many sounds trigger at once, overflowing the buffer.

Not really sure, but it is a new bug -- not a hardware issue.
