  • "Submitting Report" sound is too loud

    Whenever my friends and I decides to report someone in game, the sound that resembles a hammer hitting a metal plank goes over a certain volume that irritates and hurts the ear. It is too loud. I'm certain that the volume is over 200% for that one sound effect while the others are of normal volume.

    Commends are loud too. I don't think this sound is responding to the volume settings in the UI, I turn all my stuff way down and this is about as loud as all sounds would be if I didn't have my volume bars at 1/3.

      spamming this from another thread, same issue needs fixed:

      Honestly I signed up for the forum to post the complete opposite.

      It's not that I CAN'T hear the sound. It's that with volume in dota turned all the way down that game ready sound still blasts the hell out of my ears.

      Frankly though it's not just this sound, and it's not just dota.

      TF2 has ALWAYS bothered me in this way. When you get killed you get a loud 'slam' sound.

      Either these noises should be controllable or there should be an adjustment for sound leveling. If the min-max sounds are now 1-100, I want to be able to squeeze them all down to 30-70. Equalize them all so I don't have loud pounding noises.

      Please Valve, for the hearing sensitive please do something about this.

      I know I died in TF2, I don't need a super loud slam sound to know it. You have colorblind mode for the sight impaired, can you kindly do something similar for those with hearing conditions.
      There are many times I have either quit playing, or got pissed off, or wanted to quit just because of the constant battering of my ears.

      Even if I turn all game sounds down real low so I can't hear anything, which isn't fun, I still get loud BAM all the time.
