  • Every time I launch Dota2 all volumes go up ?!

    So like the topic says, when ever I launch dota2, volume goes up @ youtube, winamp etc?!

    I find it quite odd

    It depends on your system. For example I have a 5.1 setup and the only way i can force my system to use 5.1 speakers instead of just the front 2 is opening dota 2 (thanks dota 2) which in turn makes stuff sound louder cause the subwoofer kicks in so maybe you have a similar case?

        this is how i try to avoid my head being blown off when launching dota 2:

        1. mute all sound or remove my headset
        2. start the game
        3. alt-tab out of game and dial down the dota sound level in windows sound mixer
        4. unmute and return to the game

        All my other games and applications can remember their sound level when closed/opened, why not Dota2?

          We were doing this to work around another problem, but we will stop doing it in a future update.
