    Hero selection music and map music missing

    Have strange issue with Dota 2 music.
    Nearly all music disappeared from game except main menu music.

    After launching match and loading to hero selection screen music muted, just announcer voice can heared.
    Console have this line in red:
    S_StartSound: Failed to load sound '*#music\valve_dota_music_001\music\ui_hero_select .wav', file probably missing from disk/repository
    But this file actually present in depository. I checked this fact with tool GCFScape by opening file pak01_dir.vpk and at path mentioned in console file exist.
    Verify integrity cache not helped. Im even delete some sound cache related files and verify integrity again. But in game nothing changed.

    Not sure, but noticed that problem after buying compendium.

    Now will try fully delete dota, reboot, and reinstall.
    (OS Win7)

    Reinstalled. Problem remains.
    Actually not all music from map muted.
    While testing in lobby I hear pre-game music(before horns). After horns laning music muted. When trying attack Roshan - muted too. When trying to start fighting with enemy heroes at lane - battle music appears. Later tried again to fight with enemies - music muted.
    After this match in console was found next line in red:
    S_StartSound: Failed to load sound 'music\valve_dota_music_001\music\ganked_sml_01.wa v', file probably missing from disk/repository

    Looks like console reporting not all occurrences of missing music.

    Edit: strange behavior at "ganked_sml_01.wav" on forum - between 'wa' and 'v' space didnt exist, but forum place it here(or it just me).

    Had the same problem yesterday, Only got sound from spells/hits. Found out today that i had chosen my monitor to be the standard sound device in windows. When i switched over to my headset again i suddenly got all the sound back ingame. So maybe try to adjust something with default device ingame or out in windows on speaker settings

    Right here? The devs read the forums, some of it, at least.
