In my OpenTTD 1.7.1 on Linux: Debian "Jessie"
My sound effects do not work. Music does. I have downloaded them with the ingame downloader. (After not working I also downloaded them manually and it still doesn't work.)
I have read a lot and I also had some help on the webchat. So I summarize what I already checked.
I checked with "openttd -v" whether driver and sound set is loaded:
List of sounds sets: OpenSFX
List of sound drivers: sdl: SDL Sound Driver
"openttd -s sdl"
Still does not work
I selected OpenSFX in the menu and the slider is set correctly. Although the ingame volume slider has no effect on the volume of the music.
It is not the bug from https://bugs.openttd.org/task/5807
as I can't reproduce it.
"openttd -d driver=9 -d misc=9"
It loads the sound files.
dbg: [misc] Found dir in tar: opensfx-0.2.3/
dbg: [misc] Found file in tar: opensfx-0.2.3/opensfx.obs (9356 bytes, 1024 offset)
dbg: [misc] Found file in tar: opensfx-0.2.3/opensfx.cat (13128144 bytes, 11264 offset)
and the line
dbg: [misc] Loading sound effects...
is there 3 times.
Would be great to have some assistance for my problem. Maybe it is something in the audio setup on linux, but I don't know what as the music does work.
