[FIXED] Stereo animation doesn't stop

speakers are off but showing the soundwaves

Hi there,

 

Since the patch update of May 25, 2017 all the speakers in my house appear to be turned on (showing the music notes and such), but when you click on any of them, you have to option to turn on. This means that the speakers are turned off, but still they show as if music is playing.

I find this very annoying, because it looks like every speaker on the lot is on even though they aren't.

 

I am assuming this is a bug, so can someone please fix it?

 

Thanks!

I have the same problem too.  I tried turning on the stereo and then shutting off again hoping that would resolve the problem, but nope.

Latest Update broke All In-Game Audio Devices: Cannot Turn Off Animation!

There was an update today 5-26-2017.  After loading a home I have been playing for quite some time, all the residential wall speakers and audio equipment throughout the house and patio area appeared to be turned on (music animation from speakers).  As all the speakers show that they are playing (animations), the only option that shows after clicking on them is to turn them on (but they are already on, or appear to be).  Even if I use the build tool and buy a new speaker or stereo system, after placing it, it is turned on by default (animation playing).  Hope you can patch this soon.  I like the new saved game menu though Wink  Note:  Just checked again, the music (audio) is not playing on the speakers, but the music animation is showing on all the old and newly bought/placed audio devices

I have the same problem! Tried selling and rebuying the stereo on build mode, but it did not fix the problem. I have no cc or mods in my game.

Music - sound animation continues to show

 Music - sound animation continues to show even when stereo equipment is off. Tried replacing stereo or speakers and all old and new electronics have the same problem.  This occurred since the last Origins update.

I have the same problem plus, my object sounds are totally gone now. No sounds from pianos or dj booths etc. Is this two problems connected in any ways? Ty.

Same. It's also messing with the dance floors. The option to dance on them is gone, even when the stereo is on. It says there's no music nearby
