Sound effects

Soul Shriven
Anyone had problems with the sound effects since the ELSWEYR & UPDATE 22, sound effects have gone laggy sometimes up to 5 seconds. Tried tuning off the PS4 and unplugging the cable and restarting but it didn't solve the problem.
  • Rinlan_Darius
    Yes, same problem.
  • ZOS_BillE
    Are all sound effects laggy?

    Is this happening in every zone or dungeon you visit?

    Clearing your local save data may help with your sound issue.
    1. From the PlayStation Dynamic Menu, navigate to Settings.
    2. Go to Application Saved Data.
    3. Click on Saved Data in System Storage
    4. Select "Delete"
    5. Select The Elder Scrolls Online.
    6. Place ticks next to ESO Save Data.
    7. Select [Delete] and then select [OK] to confirm your decision.

    Happens all the time in every zone and dungeon, sometimes the special effects sound in combat will disappear then come back again 2 or 3 seconds later, I'll try what you've said and let you know.

    Having the same issues. Sounds happen a good 2-5 seconds after an action.

    Seems to have fixed the problem, thanks.

    I find Clearing your local save data after every update is a good practice to get into. Doesn't take long and only have to do it 4 times a year.

    Mainly in Elsweyr, laggy and not synchronized.

    Thought the problem had cleared but noticed it come back after entering dungeons, very annoying :(
  • ApostateHobo
    Had noticed the sound effects were laggy during dragon fights though that's expected due to the sheer number of players, but that was about it as I hadn't done any dungeons since elsweyr. Just did a dungeon now and holy crap the effects were so delayed it was terrible. I'll try deleting the save data later to see if that does anything, but since I don't get this issue otherwise I think there might just be something screwy going on with dungeons.

    Update: I deleted the save data, and it didn't help whatsoever. All it did was make me have to redo most of my settings. The audio desync seems to happen worst at the beginning and ending of combat. Everything goes silent for a few seconds then the sound effects happen all at once.

    Have the sam problems - confirm - sounds happen a good 2-5 seconds after an action - dungeon, trials, open word.
    Also critical game issue - lags - same as sound - in dungeon, trials 2-5 sec delay in graphics. Cant play.
    This is not only my problem - I spoke with many players - have the same.
    Can somebody from ZOE can react on this issue?
  • Willard
    This sound delay on PS4 has only gotten worse! Now it happens just about all the time no matter what zone you are in and actual actions not just sounds are also delayed. Clearing my local save data did nothing to help the issue. Please fix this!

    1. Sound delay in dungeon
    2. Sound goes in and out when in Dungeon
    3. Skill delay in dungeons
    4. Mobs not showing for 5-10+
    5. Group & area voice channels not showing in options for Cyrodiil

    Have same issue. Sound effects are often as much as 10 seconds delayed.
  • AgaTheGreat
    The desynchronised sound effect in dungeons happens when there is a necromancer in the group. Try it out with and without but I think that's what is causing the problems
  • vivisectvib16_ESO
    This is still happening with and without necromancers in the group. It's actually happening during solo play as well.
    So through endless twilights I dreamed and waited, though I knew not what I waited for.
