Constant camera whizzing noise

Post by Emeraude on Thu 22 Jun 2017, 16:29

Hello,

I've recently downloaded and installed all of the Sims 4 available downloads from G4TW including the update. Everything runs fine and I get no errors when playing the game. The only thing that is bothering me is that once I start playing a sim (regardless whether it was pre-made or I've created it), there is a constant whirring sound. It sounds like the camera panning or scrolling when you zoom in/out of the game. I've tried disabling UI sound, even disabling the Master sound so that there would be completely no noise, but even with master sound on mute the camera noise is still present. I even exit to the main menu of sims and the sound still runs. It really irritates me and is very unpleasant when trying to play. If anyone knows a fix or why this happens please let me know.

Thanks.

Hi there, 

Unfortunately, I don't know the cause of this since it seems the it's present even when you're not using the camera.


Have you tried with a fresh save though? Just move out your entire sims 4 folder in documents and then create a new sim. If it's working, that means your first save might be corrupted with the whizzing sound.

Thanks for the reply. I've moved the saved data from documents out of the EA folder and created a fresh save, although the sound is still there. Would it be possible to completely remove the camera sound file?

I'm not exactly sure how to completely remove the camera sound file. But perhaps you could lower the volume for UI or sound effects?
