  • Extremely loud sound on game found if dota 2 isn't the focus window

    I know this has been brought up before, but I don't believe the lack of fix is acceptable.

    As the title says.

    This is not just a bit loud, and my game sound is appropriate, it is physically painful with a headset on. I know this doesn't do this on all machines as I've used one friends whose doesn't. However, of the four machines I've used, his is the only one that doesn't do this.

    Again, this isn't just a bit loud. It is absolutely ridiculous and would probably be damaging to hearing if the noise was sustained. For whatever reason, the master sound isn't turning that effect down.

    To be absolutely clear, it is actually physically painful. To be made aware of this and to leave it is negligent. It's rare that safety issues crop up in a game and I have no idea why the devs feel this is acceptable. Please make an option to either remove this sound, turn it down, or tie it to the master volume in the game. I don't need to be babysat about a game pop.

    If you are truly worried people will miss the pops, put in an announcer voice. "Your Dota 2 game is now ready," and no one can misunderstand that.
