How is it that when I move the pieces make a sound but when my opponent’s piece moves its stealthy silent? I have the sound checked on. Is the problem a bug?
This is what the grandmasters refer to as "the quiet move". A seemingly innocuous looking move which nevertheless improves the position. There is also the possibility your opponent has chosen the opening Guioco Piano which is "The Quiet Game" in Italian.
@Stevenq- what browser and operating system are you using? Have you tried switching browsers to see if it helps at all?
I use chrome (auto-update Version 26.0.1410.65) and i get this problem very often.
@arun_bit- do you have the issue on any other browsers, or only chrome?
Thanks for looking into it. I use chess.com frequently from chrome (mac) and never tried from any other browser.
If it helps with you log or some thing for debug, i can note down the play/game id if it happens again.
I have exactly the same problem (I can hear my own moves, but not my opponent's). I have IE9 on win7. Just lost on time, since I didn't notice that my opponent had moved... :(
just to add to it (in case it helps the developers of the website).. When this happens, i dont hear the regular moves of the opponents. But i can hear the sound for castlings and when the opponent takes away any of my pieces.
Fix the problem screw all the talking
For many months this has been going on.
Same thing has been happening to me. Has anyone figured anything out?
I’ve been preoccupied; It’s only been nine months since my inquiry and I haven’t tested other browsers until now. So far Firefox works well in a 10 game tournament. I guess IE has problems. I haven’t tried Chrome, Safari, or Opera yet…
