Thread: OK I'm Stumped

  1. #1

    Default OK I'm Stumped

    Currently running 5 accounts using ISBoxer and an additional account through the battle net app that I only use for posting/sniping auctions. (Not sure if this is the right way to do it, but my attempts at adding that account through ISBoxer to my teams produced undesirable results with keymaps/swapping etc...)
    I really just want this auction house account to be it's own separate entity.

    Problem:
    Sound on extra account that is used only for auction house posting/sniping works, and then doesn't work. Seems to just stop working at no specified time. Will work for 10 minutes or 1 hour and then just stop. I have a feeling this is has to do with something ISBoxer is doing and loading my teams, but then was thinking this extra account is it's own separate process that ISBoxer shouldn't be touching. So now I'm sort of baffled.

    Please note that I have zero sound issues on my system, and no sound issues when just playing my teams through ISBoxer. Only when this additional account is being used through the battle net app.

    Desired Outcome:
    To get sound to work on this extra account so I can hear Sniping/sales alerts.

    Additional Info:
    On my teams setup I do have the box checked - Mute background game window audio and un-Mute foreground window audio. Again I thought this would only affect my clients loaded up through ISBoxer. Is this not the case?

    Any help would be much appreciated!
    Thanks

    If all fails.. maybe you could try add a veeery cheap usb soundcard and assign that spesifically to the AH account. While the other 5 uses the motherboard soundcard, if thats what they are using. Maybe, if your monitor has speakers, you can route the AH toon to that and the other 5 to other speakers.

    Alternativly, if you have a spare laptop laying around, use that as the AH pc.

    Its probably a easy fix though, maybe someone else know a solution for you. My suggestions are kinda last ditch efforts.

    Yea I have background sound on, thanks had to double check.

    @wowbox40
    Thanks, those are some good ideas. If I can't figure this out in a few days or so I may just go the cheap sound card route. Although that won't keep me from thinking about what is causing the issue and trying to fix it hah.

    Load your AH toon through IsBoxer as well.

    There is an option in IsBoxer character settings to disable broadcasting for just that character.

    Sound should now work for your AH toon same as the rest of your team.

    Thanks for the reply, I knew about that setting which really isn't a problem. It's more of a re-structuring my key maps problem if added to my team.

    Another problem would then be the setting on the character set - "Mute background game window audio and un-mute foreground window audio". I currently run with that checked as listening to sound from all 5 accounts is horrid. So I don't think I would be able to hear my AH account, as he would now be part of the same character set.

    Ok, so the way I have fixed this for the time being is the following.

    1. Load up my team through ISBoxer first with the following settings Unchecked on your character set.
    "Mute background game window audio and un-mute foreground window audio"
    "Make game believe it is foreground window (the game may otherwise ignore buttons"

    2. Load up your extra client that you want through battle net client. (Sound will work now!)
    3. Back in your ISBoxer character set, re-check those items if you don't like hearing sound from every window, and then push a reload.

    Sort of have to jump through some loops to get my desired result, but it works!
    As I suspected, ISBoxer is altering settings on the wow clients that are not part of the character set / characters loaded through InnerSpace. At least the audio portion.

    Maybe lax can provide something to allow us which clients to play sound on, instead of just a blanket "Mute background, un-mute foreground". It would be really nice to be able to "Mute background, Un-Mute foreground" and then have a check box -> Except this client (always play sounds).

    I could then have my Auction House account as part of ISBoxer teams, then be able to here chimes for sniping, and also have a FX window and mouse clicking to purchase items. That would be gravy!

    Create a Mapped Key and use a Volume Action.

    OMG Mirai I haven't tested what you posted yet, but if that works I owe you a coffee.

    You know...
    When I was creating this post I was tempted just to say "Hey Mirai, I need your help figuring this out" cause I KNEW you would have some sort of solution that would work for me. Always do!

    Thanks again for replying with a solution

    @Luxlunae
    Well in that case all the clients produce sound which works, but is highly irritating.
