Between Sunday and today, all of the gestures in my inventory have become broken, and all in the same way:

They will do chat and animation, but all of the sounds have disappeared.

When I select the drop down list, I get a short list of sounds, which hardly matters, because I can't select any of them.  No matter which I select, the "selected" sound goes back to -- None --

I use the LL standard viewer Release 6.4.3.542486 (64bit)

I bought a gesture on MP that came with sound, and it was immediately broken exactly the same way as all my others.

Check under preferences that you have not disabled hearing sounds from gestures (which is how I always have it set as it is infuriating as hell to hear all those noises).

@Wulfie Reanimator

I investigated following your suggestion: the problem persists on every parcel, regardless of my group rights, which run the gamut from Estate Manager to mere visitor without even rez rights.

 

@Jet Dallas

I'm attaching a screenshot of my sound settings.

 

To anyone who is following this thread:

One of my friends in-world said they had run into something like this once before, and it came down to a migration between asset servers, and the problem resolved when they relogged after an overnight wait.

I have logged off and back on half a dozen times in the days since I started this thread, yet the problem persists.

You're actually using a "release candidate" viewer that has an updated version of the audio software the viewer uses. You should report this as a bug with that viewer version.

Theresa Tennyson sighs, as her better angel made her suggest doing something to fix a bug she'd just as soon see remain un-fixed, to be honest.

Yes, definitely report audio bugs now, since a new directional audio package has been installed. There seems to be a push from LL to fix things that large performances would need. Hence the "long range chat" proposal. So a bug report here might actually result in action.

@Theresa Tennyson  @animats  and anyone else still paying attention.

It was definitely a RC version problem.  I'm now on Second Life Release 6.4.2.541639 (64bit) and my gestures were instantly restored.

If I feel especially generous time-wise to LL, I might re-install the problematic RC in a separate directory, then file a bug report from there.

Or maybe I'll just enjoy making annoying noises at gatherings 😉

In seriousness, thank you all for your considered replies and the time and effort you've devoted to help me resolve this.

In actuality, I definitely will re-install the RC and file a bug report.  But for now, I've unchecked that pesky box in Preferences that said I will accept RCs
