Complete pause?

Post by anahuj » 16 Mar 2014, 15:45

When I pause the game (to Load/Save/Exit menu), the music stays playing.
I need to stop the music as well.

For example, I play in windowed mode. When I press pause, I may move the pointer outside
the game window (good!) and do something else, like playing music videos at Youtube.
But the game music plays over the Youtube music. Bad.

In fullscreen mode (not tested), the music may play in the pause mode, but there should be
ability to go to windowed mode without music playing.

Note: I don't want quit the game.

We could probably pause the music when the window loses focus. Some games have an option to specify if sounds should keep playing when it's in the background.

Just throw in an option for this and another to lower the volume if they want.
I am a bigger fan of tons of control rather than taking the "user-friendly" approach.

Sound in the background focus is vanilla morrowind. But I agree add some advanced sound options!
