Missing sounds FIX (non-English languages aren't used by the game with this fix)
The Steam version of this game contains a "CondemnedA.Arch00" file which is a bit smaller than the retail release's respective file. As a result of this, and some audio files even being reversed within this .Arch00 file (such as the ones for Chapter 4 which cause the train or subway car to be silent), many sounds are simply not heard in the game.
Most of the other files from the Steam version are exactly the same size, except for another file that's similarly named "CondemnedL.Arch00". However since "CondemnedA.Arch00" contains most of the game's files, "CondemnedL.Arch00" might not even be needed. Regardless of this: I've included both .Arch00 files from my retail game to download which will address this issue for the Steam version.
Both of the methods below will work -- Method A is a 3.13 GB download compared to Method B's smaller 1.5 GB download but Method A is far more simple. Choose and use only one and don't continue a save game afterwards that's in the middle of a chapter (make a "New Game" or use the "Load Chapter" feature instead) so you can avoid possible bugs!!
Method B (includes the "CondemnedL.Arch00" file from Method A and I cover what the "Readme.txt" file tells you to do, that comes with the patch, in this section):
Step 1. I recommend using 7-Zip ( http://www.7-zip.org/download.html ) to extract the file we're about to download. Step 2. Download Naked Raiden's patch file (based off Method A's "CondemnedA.Arch00" file and compressed to 1.5 GB): https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B7MRA0lK1XjRUTVKeU81dTJ4bUE Step 3. Download xdelta (it's best to use version 3.0.11-x86_64 for this method) which you can grab from here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BwO8UrSSsuJVT1hVc3pxZ3VKSWc/view Step 4. Extract the contents of the "Game" folder from Step 2 AND the "xdelta3-3.0.11-x86_64.exe" file from Step 4, to the main game folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Condemned Criminal Origins\). Step 5. In the same directory path, rename the "xdelta3-3.0.11-x86_64.exe" file you just extracted to just "xdelta3.exe". Step 6. Sticking again to the same directory path, run the "Install.bat" file. Step 7. Finally, press any key on your keyboard when the new window comes up and simply wait for the window to close (this indicates that the patching process has been completed).
Inside the main game folder (Steam version) you've got 19 files. Most of these are similar to the retail release's, with the exception of 3 files. Readme.txt file for the Steam version is essentially blank, the Condemned.exe file is different in size and my retail game lacks an "installscript.vdf" file for obvious reasons. I've also got 2 shortcuts the Steam version wouldn't have: Uninstall Condemned - Criminal Origins and View the player data folder.
Inside the "Game" subfolder of the main game folder: ClientFX.fxd, GameServer.dll and Interface.asset00 are all the same size. GameClient.dll, however, is different and so are the 2 Arch00 files. Here are the Arch file sizes for anyone that's interested: Retail CondemnedA.Arch00: 6.21 GB (6,679,167,735) Steam CondemnedA.Arch00: 6.14 GB (6,601,846,380) Retail CondemnedL.Arch00: 658kb (674,576) Steam CondemnedL.Arch00: 649kb (664,748)
It should be noted that MAPTbiLLIKA ( http://steamcommunity.com/app/4720/discussions/0/864950181811815560/ - page 1, post #7) noticed that there was something wrong with the Steam version before me and was one of the first to report the very issue that this guide deals with: "I think, the problem is not in hardware. I unpacked the archive CondemnedA.Arch00 and compared there with files from other retail version of this game. All audio files are present, but the contents of the folder containing this audio files for the mission three (Metro Tunnels) are reversed. That's why we do not hear the sound of a train and where huge spinning generators no ambient playing. Sorry for my bad english)))".
