Completely remove sound

Post by ManusDei » March 27th, 2019, 4:09 pm

Hello,

I'm trying to completely remove the sound from Eschalon Book 1, because I want to play it while listening to some other music, watching a video or something. I put all sounds to 0% but I still hear creatures moving and spell effects.

Is there a way (Steam version) to launch the game and disable all sounds from it ?

Is this Windows, Mac, or Linux?

Click on the floppy disk icon in the upper right, then options. Mine is set at Music: 0%, atmosphere 20%, footsteps 30%. Your mileage may vary.

It's already all at zero and I have creature and spell sounds.
That's the Issue, I still have sound when everything is at 0%

This assumes you have Windows 10, and are running at least the April 2018 update.

1. Open the game. If in Fullscreen Mode, ALT-TAB out.
2. Right-click on the Sound Icon on the Taskbar, and click Open Sound Settings
3. Scroll to the bottom of the page, and click "App volume and device preferences"
4. Find Eschalon Book 1, and drag the slider down to 0.
5. …
6. Profit!
