    Has anybody else using EC noticed that when the sound suddenly drops out for several seconds, your life also drops like a rock during that time? I saw this time and again on a sampire in doom - sound cuts out, suddenly I've lost 80 or 100 HP. Maybe the targeting is dropping out when the sound cuts out (serious problem for a sampire in a crowd)?

    The problem occurs when the game should be playing a heartbeat sound clip but because it can't play this clip you get silence instead.

    You get the heartbeat or should get it, when your health drops below a certain percentage.

    Although I haven't had this problem since they supposedly disabled it a patch or two ago.

    Sound cuts out at nearly full health, then health plummets during silence - so this problem is occurring before health is low enough for a heartbeat sound

    I did have this problem in the EC when the new client was released, but it has since been fixed I think. I don't notice it anymore.

    EC - pretty sure it's the latest patch - I'll check tonight after work and repost

    I quit playing with the sound on because it seems to freeze up my client when it's on.

    Branching off from the original post for a moment, I'm hoping the new @Pinco GUI includes a sound/music update as well. There are all kinds of mp3s in the EC sound file that don't ever seem to be used - although some of them are clips from other games (Witcher, Baldur's Gate, to name a few)

    yes, EC PlaySound will be part of the new UI since there is no way to play external files from the client itself :|

    Uh, oh - I checked and I was a patch behind (4.0.38.0) - patched up to 4.0.38.2 - I'll post if that solved the problem
    *shuffles off sheepishly*
    EDIT: No problem after the patch. Thanks for the reminder @Bleak
