So, I've never had this problem before, but I was trying to ladder today (due to the reset) and for whatever reason I don't get any in-game sounds: no alerts, unit responses, etc.
All my sound settings are enabled, etc. HOWEVER, while I do not get any sounds in-game I get all the Battle.Net sounds, background music, etc.
Its just my in-game sound effects that don't seem to be working. Is anyone else encountering this? Could be a possible bug with the new patch? I haven't changed any settings or anything, just for whatever reason I have no in-game sound effects
Upon further investigation it seems the issue is that I am not getting Movement, Response, and Error sounds. Other in-game sounds seem to be working. Yes, they're all enabled. Yes, I have tried enabling them and disabling them. I've tried resetting in-game sound settings numerous times, whether that be by adjusting the dials manually or restoring default settings. I definitely had sound before so I don't know what could be the cause.
It sounds like some sound files are missing? I don't want to be lame but have you tried the Blizzard Repair Tool?
Straight from the Blizzard Support site:
When should I use the repair tool?
Game crashes due to data reported as missing or corrupted. In-game graphical or sound issues due to missing data. Updater reports it cannot patch because the source data does not match.
Where is the repair tool, and how do I use it?
In your StarCraft II Installation folder, there is a folder labeled "Support". Inside this folder is a file called "Repair.exe" for PC or "Repair.app" for Mac. To perform a repair, simply run this file.
Doing so will prompt you with a dialogue, asking you if you want to repair. Clicking "Repair" will begin the process. Note that this process may take an extended amount of time - this is normal.
