Sometimes exiting Automobilista race/practice cranks my PC volume to 100?

Discussion in 'Automobilista' started by Derek James, Jun 9, 2016.

  1. Hey guys,

    Anyone ever experience this? Sometimes when exiting a practice or race in Automobilista all of the sudden my PC volume goes up to 100 and blasts my speakers or headphones and scares the living crap outta me. The screen kind of sticks just for a second and then volume just maxes out.

    Then once AMS is shut down I have to go into the speaker volume and turn it back down to 10ish where I like it.

    I have Windows 10 with all latest updates and Soundblaster Z with all latest drivers etc. No other game or sim seems to do this. Just wondering if anyone has experienced this with AMS or any other game? I'm running an i5 4690k with a 970 GTX MSI card with 8 gigs mem.

    Thanks for any help!

    What do you expect, you do have a "Soundblaster" sound card :laugh:. Sorry, I've never had this happen.
     
  3. Hi Folks

    Sounds like the volume of AMS goes back to the volume of the main sound of windows.
    Look at the picture (Example)!

    Open the Sound-Volume Option at the bottom right side (Win 7),
    or use the following tutorial for win10 to get the mixer back

    If i remeber right, there is an option to isolate each sound from the others
