Please add a button to mute the games sound while it is in the background alt-tabbed away.:)

You can always go into Options and turn the Master Volume down! I think cluttering the main GUI with a mute button would be slightly overkill =D

The more options the merrier ;)

At least I wouldn't need to do it manually with every alt-tab :(

If you use windows 7 you can change the volume independently for different applications easy with the volume mixer. Shouldn't take more than a second or two.

EDIT: When I think about it the feature might exist in vista too.

He really wants an "auto-sound-off" feature for those moments that you hurriedly hit alt-tab as the boss rounds the corner :)

Haha! Watch out, Yoshiro, he's on to you :D

I totally missed that, but now when you say it, that's probably it! I'll see if I can squeeze another toggle button in there somewhere ^^
