No voice acting in Far Cry 3

#1 Posted by biezt14 (3 posts) -
I have Far Cry 3 for PC and just started playing it today. I have only started the first level, but the characters have no voices during conversation. As I walk around I can hear voices and sounds, but during conversations with the characters I can only hear the music and see their lips moving. I purchased this off of steam and updated it right after launch. Any help would be appreciated as I am having no fun trying to play the game like this.

It looks like a sound card issue. This happens when you have Windows setup your sound as 5.1 when you only have 2.1 speaker system. Look into that!

With respect to everyone I simply wanna say that, this is not a problem related to sound card or any hardware devices. I faced the same problem. I installed the game in my PC where Windows 8 Pro 64 Has been installed and did not get any sound once the cut scene of the opening ends. From there no sound at all I found. I probably did everything what every other websites and individuals suggested but not a single one worked. So to solve the sound issue the only thing that you have to do to replace the game with a new one. Another probable solution is to install the suitable directX for Far Cry 3 and many of my friends said it worked for them. Also the save game option will solve upon replacing the DVD. Do not forget to install other opponents/resources (Dot Net Framework, VcRedist, Ubisoft Launcher and so on) came with the DVD. So thanks everyone.

 

With Best regards,
