  • Annoying ambient sounds. No seperate volume slider.

    I find it incredible annoying that Dota 2 has no separate volume slider for ambient sounds and that it is simply slaved to the Game Volume slider.

    If I turn the Game Volume slider up to the level I desire, then the wind and whooshing gets way too loud. This is simply not acceptable that Dota 2 lacks such a common option seen in other games, in my book.

    Please Valve fix this.

    What you think?

    What drives me nuts is that you hear the waterfall on the left side ALL THE TIME.

        PLEASE VALVE FIX THIS - no ambient sound control

        I am also VERY much in need of an control for ambient sound. I have gone to great extremes to try to eliminate the wind and water background noise from the game so I can PLAY THE GAME. Valve hear my plea! I sacrifice some fruit and berries for you! ...quietly and with very little foley...

          Necro'd, & agreed... There is an annoying "wind always swooshing" sound that I want to get out of my ears while playing.

          I always listen to my own music, and other than that; I ONLY want to hear game SFX and my Hero's audio comments.

          Fix these trashy audio sliders already.
