No sound in Spiderman 3


Recommended Posts

Niels.

I got my copy of Spiderman 3 the pc game yesterday, but when the mission movies are playing there is no sound :s. I've already tried reinstalling but that didn't help. Google didn't help also...

Is there anyone that also has this problem? And is there a solution?

Plugged in?

Drivers good?

The normal gamesounds are all there, it's just the sounds when the movies are playing. There is nothing wrong with the drivers as far as i know... and yes everything is plugged in.

Codec problems maybe. Do normal movies play fine?

This might work. I've had that problem with older games. The fix is easily reversable.

Start->Run->dxdiag

On the sound tab, try setting it to standard acceleration if it's not already. Or, try Full if it is on standard.

I have 2 sound tabs, but none of them let me select acceleration :s

Also, i thought it might come in handy to tell that i'm using Vista Home Premium.

Should see this. Mind you that I am using XP so it may look different or not be there at all.

If its the same engine as Ultimate Spider-Man (Perhaps?), that game had problems with sound as well.

Are there any official Spiderman game forums, because if there are then I suggest you have a quick search around there, because there may well be more people with your problem.

It happens sometimes that there's no sound during the cutscenes. Actually there are background sounds but no speech. I noticed that it only happens if I have previously minimized the game (to do something else) and then came back to the game.

It is weird how things sometimes just 'fix themselves', but at least it is working as it should now. :)

The problem is solved by using the DXwind program and running the game in windowed mode, to play without a frame, the"Full screen" checkbox must also be set so if you want to collapse the game, it will not go to the tray, but will remain a window in the background. this bug appears when you collapse the game. the same problem is solved in Windows 10 (Only 1607) by installing compatibility with Win xp sp 2. I rolled the game many times and the bug did not appear.
