    Title: SotA music follows/continues after ALT-tabbing out from the game in QA50 - change default setting please
    Reproduction Rate: Every time
    Blocker? No
    Details: If you ALT-tab out from the game in R49, the game's music stops there. However, in QA50 as you ALT-tab out you still hear the musics from SotA while writing this forum report. This includes also e.g. combat sounds.
    Steps to Reproduce: ALT-tab out to Windows (-> music stays on)
    User Specs:
    OS: Windows 10 (10.0.0) 64bit
    CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-8700K CPU @ 3.70GHz (12) System RAM: 16319
    GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti GPU RAM: 11127

    your sttings in options from R49 are not the same as in QA R50, so please check your settings (I had the same thought but in QA the setting to mute when not focused was not ticked there)

    Developers, can you make this on as a 'default' setting?

    [x] Mute when not focused

    It may put new players off due to many people actually wanting to tab out to other windows when trying out SotA-- having to find such option doesn't come as an intrinsic feeling. You may want to continue watching a video on the background, which makes you 1. annoyed at the game, 2. turning down the volume in-game (not what you want), 3. probably not even seeing that option like with myself-- this all from an user experience point of view. Thanks!

    It most likely does, but I'd say that's the option for an 'advanced' mode, not the default. "You tab out of things for something else." (E.g. bosskey, heh.)
