  • Latest update - "Game ready" sound is gone.

    After the 9/6 update, I no longer get the "game ready" sound when I'm tabbed out. Weirdly enough I got it before the update but after the update, it no longer works. I confirmed that the "sounds when minimized" box is checked.

    If you are using an external audio card/speakers it might be coming from the imac itself and you might no hear it!

      No I'm not using any external speakers. I can hear the music etc while alt tabbed. And the "game ready" sound plays when I have the game focused. The sound does NOT play when the game is tabbed out although the background music continues.

        It's very weird, some people have that issue. For me before the last update it didn't work at all when i was tabbed, after this update at least i can hear it , but not in the correct speakers, which for me means I can not hear it as well as the other ones are way louder and something is always playing. Have you tried taking a look at the icon, on my screen it bounces when the game is ready, so that sort of helps, although it is annoying to just keep track of it..

          I'm still not getting a game ready sound when tabbed out of the game. It's very frustrating to have to wait for a game with the game actually open and not be able to do other things. Does anyone know of a fix or if a fix is on the way?
