Hi everyone,

I just reinstalled Minecraft 1.2.5 last night and spent several hours trying to figure out why there was no sound when I'd log in and play.  Through the course of that troubleshooting I've determined that the sound files are not downloading when the game updates.  In my C:\Users\Dave\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft\resources folder there is only a single newsound folder.

Here is what I've tried so far:
  • Deleted the .minecraft folder and restarted the game
  • Deleted the .minecraft folder, emptied the recycle bin, restarted the computer, then restarted the game
  • Forced an update
  • Right clicked and run as administrator while forcing an update
  • Manually updated the .jar files
  • Manually updated the AL .dll files
  • Played for over an hour waiting for the files to download
  • The F3 + S method
  • Verified my sound is working (everything else works fine, just Minecraft is having this issue)
  • Logged in through the browser version and played
It just seems like the files are simply not being downloaded.  Any other ideas here?  The game is fun and I enjoy it but not so much without sound.

Is there a way to notify whoever manages the download servers that they seem to be having some problems with the sound files?

Thanks.

I should have posted here sooner.  My 5-year old was playing around on Minecraft and then came in all excited and said the sound was working.  I guess the sound file download just was taking f-o-r-e-v-e-r.

Trick : Redownload everything , make new world. Wait 2-3 minute and let the sound download themselves.
It works for me.
I helped? Press the little arrow in the bottom right corner.

Delete your resources folder in the .minecraft folder and then force update

I FIGURED IT OUT!!!!!!!!!! Ok so i deleted .minecraft and force updated to get a new one. When i created a world i keep the newsound folder in .minecraft open so i could see it. And after about 3-5 minutes of waiting and walking around i pressed F3+s and the sound files just appeared. Step,random, so fourth. For those who this still wont work heres a link to the entire Sound folder. Your Weclome Posted Image!

Okay because I had this problem, I kept deleting minecraft and re downloading it, however I eventually realsied that the resources folder was empty... to get to this i type in %appdata% in the search bar when you got  your start menu, and a minecraft folder is found, so I click on that and it brings up a folder with folders in. There is one that says resources.. or should be.
So I downloaded this .. http://www.mediafire...qfv25lq2oc6vvlb
And extracted the files using winrar to the minecraft folder.
And then I checked the resources folder and they were all there. So I went on to minecraft. it didnt work, so I came off and logged in again. This time the sounds were there :D
I hope this helps :)
RAWR! ^^
