Default Switch Off Music?

How do I switch off the music?

I've tried setting the music slider to zero, but that has no effect on the music volume.

Thanks.

It should work. Are you sure you clicked on "Apply" after setting the slider?

There are 2 types of music in the game. The main music and dynamic stuff is controlled by the music slider, but there is some music that is hidden in the background sounds that is controlled by the background slider.

Default Music in the Demo

Hi guys...I have been following the game development for a while now..looks really good! I havent bought because I actually wan to pay full price for the game..better for you Devs

I downloaded the demo however and had a bit of a bash on it last night...quite a lot of fun! The music however, I turned right down...I prefer to just hear ship noises and the sound effects over music in a game anyday. So to turn the music off I:

Turned Music to Zero, then applied....still hmm bits of music playing though, so I turned background sound to zero and applied..that got rid of more...it just left one annoying beat...like duuuuhdunt!...3-4sec interval then duuuuhdunt! This never stopped or changed, no matter what i did. I restarted and tried again but got the same thing

The only way I could get rid of it was to turn sound fx down to zero and apply...of course that got rid of all the ship sounds and pew pew laser sounds and all the other goodness! So my question is:

Would it be possible to have all the music put under the Music tab...? Personally I always find music immersion breaking in games...maybe I am just weird, but I play all the games I have like that, hehe.

Anyways, sorry for the wall of text!

Kind regards,
Nayzablade

Nayz - Turn down Background slider.

EDIT: Or rename all music files.

But seriously a music slider at zero should mute ALL music.

If it is repeating, it's probably a low health warning or something like that.

Hmmm...may have been low health music, hehe...I will look into renaming the music files, if I can find them. I did have the background and music turned right down.

The beat was linked to the sound effects...I think it was the low health one like Shadow said...I was to busy pew pewing to notice, as where I started was really close to a bunch of enemies..though I did notice that my ship was on fire, I didn't link the music with low health for some reason. I will test this after work and let you know.

Anyways, thanks for the feed back...I have 3 friends and myself waiting on the release of this game as we all really enjoy coop games like this, its looking awesome!

BTW, the graphics, explosions and weapon/shield effects where actually a lot better in the game then I expected, a very nice surprise

If the music could all be linked under one slider, that would be icing on the cake!

Kind regards,
Nayzablade

Better still a tick box labeled "Kill All Music".

Yep I really am that much of a misanthrope.
