Not sure about other platforms, but if you're on Windows then check the volume mixer: right-click the speaker icon in the taskbar and choose "Open Volume Mixer". This should show one volume bar per app.

Yeah done that, rpg maker mz volume is at the max, as I mentioned, the sound is no problem in the editor, it’s only during play testing

Just to be clear: the editor and playtest are separate applications, with separate volume controls in the mixer. Some other ideas:
  1. Are you using any plugins? If so, it might help to post screenshot(s) of your Plugin Manager to show what you're using. It might be a plugin parameter problem.

    You could also try turning off your plugins temporarily to see if that helps; as always, remember to save your project to apply Plugin Manager changes before testing.

  2. Does the same problem happen in a new project?

  3. Also, can you confirm whether this is happening in MV or MZ? Or both?

A lot of plug-ins set the sound at 20% in game by default as many complained about going deaf as loud as the sounds are in editor. When you do playtest, load up options in game and set those.

OK it looks like you are using MZ, so

I've moved this thread to MZ Support. Thank you.

Did you turn uncheck all plugins, save your project, and test to see if that fixes the problem?

I might try the mechanical bull at the fair on Friday... for one of the challenges, if you stay on for two minutes, you win $200. I might give that a try and see if I win--I'm pretty good at holding on to things.
Remaking a more streamlined version of my Remote Move map skill in MZ, just one switch and one variable to handle everything. If you seen the Move skill in Golden Sun before, moving far away items with your mind is pretty cool

I don't want to brag or anything but I was entertaining a woman the other night. I told her jokes while she bandaged my foot.
Okay so, I'm using this script, right? And it works. If you press :Y a menu should come up allowing you to choose an item to use. Nothing happens. You press :A to open the event options menu and choose "Use an Item"? The item selection menu appears. I have no idea how I set this up or why it works the way it does. Absolutely bizarre.
