    Title: Game doesn't respect Windows 10 mixer output setting
    Reproduction Rate: Always
    Blocker? No

    In the windows 10 mixer, every application can have a specific audio output (and input) setting. When setting SOTA to something *other* than the default, audio will go to the selected output for that gaming session. However, when restarting the game, even though the mixer shows the configured output, the game reverts back to outputting to the default channel.

    Steps to Reproduce:

    - With more than one audio output
    - Start the game, note that audio is going to the default
    - In the mixer, change the output to the other channel
    - The sound will now be going to the configured channel
    - Restart the game
    - The mixer shows the alternate channel for SOTA
    - *Howerver* the audio will be going to the default channel
