"Inactive Client Muting" doesn't work for me in "Fixed Window" mode.

If I switch to Fullscreen it works :V


Intended or a bug? *hopes for bug*

They should work in space. let me check.
If this is a bug, then it won't go in for Kronos. but I'll fix it for next patch then

I can't reproduce that.
I'm sure I'll know after release - since a ton of people will most likely file bug reports on it . but I have tested this with all window sizes.

have you tried updating Sisi?

You got it backwards, CCP WhiteNoiseTrash. He's saying it does work in space, but not when you do PI while docked.

so what you are saying is that station interior and shipsounds are too low?
I can make them louder, no problem.

but we received a number of complaints before this system about specifically those being too loud?
and the jumpgates in particular?


Aye, appreciate your response :), if they could be as loud as anything I think now it is easily settable for people who don't want the sounds too loud. I was just thinking about the immersion. But they are definitely bit more loud than they were. Thanks for your hard work.


actually. you are right about that.
Some sounds could actually "easily" be mixed slightly louder - without much buzz to it, because you can now town them down.

I'll see if I can do a quick remix for Kronos, but don't expect anything, it all depends on a lot of other stuff I am in need of doing first.


I would boost station sounds to the max, while trading you know you are still in eve that way.

I did some further testing and got some strange behaviors. If I simply hit the "windows"-key, EVE sound gets muted, but as soon as I click anything else (e.g. the browser in the task bar) the sound comes back. If I minimize EVE by using the shortcut "windows+d" or "windows+arrow down" the sound won't get muted. Tested it while docked and undocked.

I'm using Windows 7 Pro 64-bit and a ASUS Xonar DS soundboard... if that helps. SISI is up-to-date.

no. if you minimize the window by just clicking minimize at top, it also doesn't work. I need a coder to figure out what is different from that event and the others.

Ah glad to hear the win+down issue is known :)

Edit: It appears that different clients keep track of their own dampening settings differently. I can see the use case for this but it wasn't intuitive to identify why I was still hearing noises with my clients minimized.

If you want to give us a way to avoid setting all clients individually, you could add a button "Apply inactive client dampening settings to all clients on this machine"

Awesome whitenoisetrash! =) eve has sound again!

now the only thing on my wish list audio wise is the ability to save and load sound profiles for casual pvp, fleet level pvp, game capture for youtube videos etc... maybe to even export them so i can archive my sound settings in case something goes awry and my settings get nerfed for whatever reason!

ok, I haven't checked the fix.
but apparently the minimize button does work - apart from that it also thinks it's active again once it's minimized.

it shuold be fixed in next patch.

Hmm, about switching from the window by anything other than alt-tabbing not working... there's a reason I don't alt-tab in EVE: the alt key state often gets stuck and remains stuck when I switch back to the window (leading to mysteriously locked overviews). Not your field I know, but since you're looking at context switching could you see if you can mark all keys no longer pressed on context switch?
