It seems to me that, at least in Windows 7, when you play a game that uses Red Book CD music, when you try to set the CD music volume in the game settings it actually changes the volume of all sounds in game.
I thought it was just a problem with one game, but I had this problem in at least 3 games now, so I am noticing a pattern here. I am wondering is this the same for all games ? Did something change in new versions of Windows, so this is messed up now ?
I installed the game on Windows XP and you can change CD volume music in game independently from the rest, so it is not a bug inside the game, it must be Windows. Microsoft must have messed something up, I noticed when you click Volume Mixer on Windows 7 there is no CD option while on XP there is one. It is probably related.
Is there something I can do about this ?
In the game I want to play the CD music volume changes during gameplay, so when the music goes completely silent, all the sound in game does too (on Windows 7). I have no choice than play it on my old computer from 2005 then, but that one is falling apart, I break something whenever I touch it.
