This is an old issue, but geez, should be easy enough to fix. If I alt tab, I hear all game sounds, except the only one I care about: when a warzone pops. So, I can't alt tab and browse the forums or do other things while waiting, I have to keep swtor "active".

Please fix, k go.

that's a preferences setting > sound > check enable background audio.

I'd also make sure you're playing in full screen windowed. although that may only matter if, like me, you use multiple screens. it's also more resource intensive.

edit: sry. didn't read entire post. sounds like a local file issue to me.

Have same problem, Bioware tell me that this is problem with my sound driver but i don't think so. This is so weird that all sounds working well except this one. I tryed turn off background sound in preferences and then turn on but it don't help.
If anyone found reason and solve this problem?

Yeah I solved the problem; when I was tabbed out watching romance videos I used to leave the sound on. Then I found the mute button; now I only miss the pop when I'm getting fresh socks.

But I want to hear this WZ pops during hide game. Just want to know how somebody repair this issue and after that hearing all sounds also with WZ pops. I used already repair option from launcher but after that nothing change.
In game there is option for turn on/off game sound in background during close to desktop. So maybe somehow for this one sound is always turned off this option. But I don't know how to check it and where.
Its so annoying when I waiting for WZ and during this time I want look on websites and when I back to game for a some time i only hearing sound which inform me that I missed WZ

Enabling background audio works for me, I used to use that before I had a smart phone so I could intarweb in between pops.

I did it, but still don't hearing WZ pops rest sounds are hearing fine. I don't know what is different is between this wz pops and rest sound. If I to be honest I want exactly reverse situation because most important for me is workable wz pops sound in background. I completely don't know why doesn't work, where is problem (game or my drivers) and how repair it.
