Okay, so first hello all.
I will explain my problem as precise as possible. It’s been a long time I got Garry’s mod now, and I was always playing with the NPCs, especially the Combine ones.
All Combine sounds always worked fine until… I’d say a week ago now. I just started a singleplayer gamemode, spawned a Metrocop, and when I shot at him, no pain sound. I shot more, no sound at all. I finally killed him, and at my surprise, not any classical Beeeep sound, nor radio chatter. I tried with: Metropolice, Combine Soldier, Combine Prison Soldier, Combine Elite. Not one of them has the sounds working.
So, I checked in my console and this is the kind of error I get:
“No such sentence group METROPOLICE_DIE” “No such sentence group COMBINE_DIE” “No such sentence group METROPOLICE_PAIN” . I won’t list them all, but yes, it always begin with “No such sentence group”.
I want to precise that I only have this problem with Combine NPCs, the other ones (citizen, rebel, Alyx, Barney, etc…) have their pain and death sound (except the error with “missing token”, but I heard I’m not alone to have this problem). I also want to precise that they worked fine before, but it’s been a long time I didn’t test my NPCs, so I can’t tell you precisely at which day it suddenly changed.
I already checked:
-Addons, I removed them all from my directory, started Gmod and tested: sounds still don’t work, same error message.
-Searched in my hl2 folder, the NPC sounds are here, there are not any missing.
So yes, this is very frustating, since I really like playing with the NPCs, doing some street wars, but without their sounds, Combine aren’t the same at all. My last solution would be reinstalling Garry’s Mod, but I have a very slow connection (It took me like 24 hours to install Gmod), so I want to know your comments before doing this last and decisive action.
Thank you for your support.
