No sound notifications from any addons
As others have said, disabling the sound effects should resolve the issue. I did just that, and now DBM works fine.
I've disabled my sound effects and it did not work at all. Everything was just completely silent. None of the addons I have that use sound cues are able to produce any sound. Makes raiding very irritating.
Blizz are aware of the sound issues. GC tweeted earlier that it was unintentional and are working towards a hotfix.
Really? That surprises me...I didnt think they would acknowledge it.
Had it breaking my music addon fighting a Barrens commander.
Yep, how I first noticed this, too. Van32's Combat Music (which I love) is now silent or horribly choppy when fighting multiple enemies or in a group. It's just not a boss fight without my epic boss music! Having to mute the game's sound effects blows the immersion. :/
The same thing happened to me. but what was weird is, i had no sound till i manually ran
/script PlaySoundFile("Sound\\Spells\\PVPFlagTaken.wav", "Master");
this is the same sound dbm uses. after using that, they always worked. i didnt have to alter any settings. and i have no clue why this fixed the issue but it did. the only thing i can think of is it could be a caching issue. but i have no idea if sounds are even cached to begin with.
Has anyone else tried and confirmed this?
I've logged out and downloaded the hotfix. Crossing my fingers!
BTW, if you are getting stuck in a "Game is up to date." loop where your launcher just keeps re-launching itself, close the launcher, close the Agent.exe and Wow.exe processes (Ctrl + Shift + Esc -> Processes in Windows), and try again.
