That is actually a common bug, the one rubik mentioned. For a while, I thought it only happened with people who has a slow PC like me, but my brother encountered that "few seconds no sound" bug as well today, so it might be something else...

i don't have a "low pc"...

amd fx 6100, radeon 6850 1gb, 8gb ram, windows 8 pro...

It mutes the sound in cutscenes if it cannot synchronize it with the video. It can happen if there's some glitch that causes it to stall at a point. Do you see something like that happen before the sound goes off?

The same thing is happening to me too and it never did this before.

Alen, there was never such glitching when this bug happens, it just does at almost every cutscene, just when it starts. It is probable that it is caused by the game taking a few seconds to synch up the audio.

Hm. if it starts to happen to people that didn't have this before, then I guess we need to look into it. Does it happen on all cutscenes for you, ChrisW, Solais?

For me, it does on most, and in fact, always did. It definitely happens less frequently when the game "warmed up" by playing it for a while. It is also less frequent when the cutscene is at the middle/end of the level, but when it's at the beginning, it almost always happens. (I swear I reported this one before though, but can't really remember...)

I lost partial sound in a few of the cutscenes at the beginning of the game. I later noticed my performance settings had reset back to their defaults. After adjusting the performance settings, I no longer had this problem.

edit: Seems I may have spoken too soon. Chapter_CutScene_WalkerIntro in 03_IbnTulun.wld frequently cuts out for no apparent reason.

Guys, how many files you've got in 'temp\ShaderCache\D3D-WIN' folder?
(A lot or just a few?)

A lot of .shc files, 1,213 of them.
