Prototype Sound Fix Prototype Sound Fix – Overview

2. Extract files into the [ ..\Prototype\Audio ] folder.
3. Rename [ ..\Prototype\Audio\audio\ambience.p3d ] into something else.
4. Rename [ ..\Prototype\00audio.rcf ] and [ ..\Prototype\01audio.rcf ] into something else.
5. Select all files and folders (Ctrl – A) in the [ ..\Prototype\Audio\audio ] folder.
6. Cut all files and folders (Ctrl – X) in the [ ..\Prototype\Audio\audio ] folder.
7. Paste them in the [ ..\Prototype\Audio ] folder.

    1) Uninstall the game
    2) In realtek HD option where is input and output find option where you can chose 44.1 kHZ
    3) In the device manager I turned off modem dobleduplex device
    4) Install the game. DON’T USE THE ABOVE STEPS ANY MORE.

    I have the same problem as Gary, soundmax doesn’t have the change bitrate dropdown option. I did all the above instructions and renamed the two files and still no sound.

    One thing, do you rename the file just before the extension, or just name it altogether and remove the extension.

    Thx cheers…

    Hi guys.
    i did steps that Deimos said.it works very fine.i have realtek sound device.for realtek ,changing output setting to 44.1 is possible in vista and for xp i couldn’t find this setting in options.in xp controlpanel you can find this setting with another interface : audio devices>speaker settings>advanced>performance.you can change the hardware acceleration to lower settings.but it didn’t solve my problem.anyway you can test for both realtek or soundmax.i have xp sp2 and Deimos solution solved my problem and works fine.

    said the following:

    I found the solution for me (on XP SP3 with SoundMax integrated HD audio) from the activision forums.
    I had no sound at all.
    Solution: Disable all other audio devices.
    I have a creamware audio card and also had SoundTap Recoder as well.
    Once I disabled them in the device manager it worked.

    This didn’t work for me — same issues as before. I don’t have squeeky or crackling audio, I have a problem with the cutscenes lagging on me when I have my vsync on. I can fix it by turning my vsync off, but then the game is a line-broken mess, so that’s no real solution. Anyone else having this specific issue? Have you figured out how to fix it outside of this fix? And I have my audio output to 44.1 already.

    *I thought I should mention I changed my resolution from 1920 x 1080 to 1680 x 1050 and I don’t have this issue anymore. Sucks to give up resolution, but at least I can play the game smoothly now.

    I did everything, from this side, and other sites, just didnt combine all of it together. Done it with both audio archives (00 and 01), I assumed that I should keep original hiearchy of the files when I extracted it with scarexplorer? Did that, still no sound!!

    Cound this other devices be the problem?


    I’m running XP SP2, realtek HD audio, plz help, I dont wanna play even a minute of game without sound, it’s like watching horror movie with no sound at all (pointless)!

    Sorry 4 my eng.

    EDIT: And yes, those modems were problem! Just do to Control Panel > Phones And Modems > and remove all the modems u dont use.

    txh this worked for me
    the only downside to this
    is that the ambience sounds are muted
    hope theres a fix to solve the issue
    without scrificing the ambience.

    i also discovered (at leats for me)
    that if you have thermal vision
    or infected vision activated
    when pausing or watching a video you
    get the issue again.

    It works, but, at certain points in the game, like when your on the mission with the doctor to drive him in the tank to the test center and you have to defend the lab, upon returning him, if you did this trick, it will sit there forever until you alt + f4, so right before this mission, un-do this patch by renaming audio00.rcf back to the original name, and also, the other mission is where you have to destroy the bunches of tanks because the one guy has the super tank or whatever, hypobolic whatever, the end of that mission when you consume him, you also need to un-do the patch for that one to work.

    My sound was fine, I have it set to Qudrophonic (4.0) in the windows audio settings but when I changed it to Stereo Headphones it was really muffled, the exact same problem as the others here. Changing it back to Quadrophonic made it work fine again.
    Maybe people can try changing their speaker options before removing gamefiles, it shouldn’t work like this but when a game crashes 5 times because your router has lost sync anything goes

    I have win XP sp2 and soundmax audio . what I did was simply remove the unused modems through the control panel , phones and modems . Just like magic !
    Thx HEPBO3AH , you’re a life saver 🙂

    Try it out guys , i bet a lot of you will be able to play the game afterwards 🙂

    BTW , I don’t know how to save the game , does it save itself or do i have to save it myself from the menu , coz i keep saving while playing and when i load i get the beginning of the level AGAIN . Thx anyway 🙂

    Well, I tried literally every fix I could find for this game (I beat the game with no sound whatsoever, with heavy metal playing), and none of them worked, including the one(s) above. Finally, I stumbled upon the fix, and it was simpler than i could have imagined! I have WinXP SP3, so this may only work for that:

    Select Sounds and Audio Devices in the Control Panel, and select the Audio tab. there should be a checkbox that says ‘use only default devices’. Check that and try it out.
    Hope this helps!!

    I did the soundfix steps even changed the sound in ze control panel. So now the sound works.

    BUT the game suddenly freezes and i can’t do anything but reset the computer manualy (holding down the power button). CTRL + ALT + DEL dosent even work.

    Thanks for the sound fix, guess i have to wait for a patch or smt cuse this game is buggy as shaaaaaaait

    Oh and if you replace these files you will get stuck at certain steps as im sure people have noticed. So this is only a VERY temporary fix. Changing the sound bitrate dosent help either. Way to go activsion releasing a game that dosent work and then not giving out a patch for months? im mean seriously get your shit together.

    Okay, so i had the same problem and what fixed it for me was reducing it to 16bit 48000HZ. Originally i had it at as high as it could go but on my other computer this didn’t work. Chipmunk audio. By decreasing it to, i believe 24bit 44100HZ this was fixed but i realized that there was no audio in the gameplay (well a bit but most sound effects were not, bullets, ravens, etc…). But then changing it to 16bit 48000Hz did the trick, not high though or else chipmunk audio will become a problem again but this worked fine

    Thank you so much for this help! After loading the game for a second time I found it was funking up again. Solution?

    I checked my sound settings and found that for some reason they were switched back to 7.1 speakers. I have headphones on so I obviously couldn’t hear some stuff >_>. After switching to headphones, I could hear dialogue and voices fine (Sound Blaster Audigy SE sound card). I assume you’ll hafta make that change every time cause the 7.1 speakers thing resets itself. Thanks a bunch!
