muted sound comes back on when player joins
« on: 2 November 2019, 15:51:46 »
At the game set-up menu, when I use "K" to mute the music, it comes back on automatically when someone joins.

I think this was done intentionally by titi so he can see that someone joined his lobby.

Hi kagu,

Yeah, titi mentioned to me in IRC yesterday that it was intentional.

But there's already a "cavalry charge" sound when someone joins the lobby or a server becomes available. I'm not sure what the point is in having an option to mute the background music if it auto-disables itself randomly.

I sometimes am not at my computer, but nearby it and don't want the music on all the time.

I usually have my MG music level volume to 0 to work around it.

If you wait for a server or player ( very typically ) you are idleling in the lobby. And as you do other things, like beeing afk for a moment you miss the trumpet. The you come back and ... silence. You miss the other player/server because MG is ideling in the background. Thats the reason why I made it like it is. Maybe a switch in the options ?  :D

A switch would be good. I'd be happy to do a PR, but it would take me too long at the computer to figure out how.
