[QUOTE=vermura;6529668]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.[/QUOTE

I wish when you are alt-tabbed out that the game box on the task bar below would at least blink orange to alert you that a queue has popped. Like most programs when they are alt tabbed out and something in that program wants to alert you the box goes orange, that should be easy for devs to do, lets get that feature.

Hey

Just saw this thread and thought i'd pop in with a tip that works for me:

-Try setting the game to Fullscreen (Windowed) instead of regular Fullscreen.

Well, i had this very same problem since i came back about a week ago. And since all i do is pvp, it was quite annoying not hearing the sound when a wz pops. So i searched and found this post, but with no solution.

Then i remembered (Ya inorite!? Im old!) what i did to solve it in the past (set the game to fullscreen windowed) and thought i might actually help someone in the same situation.

Im very sorry if this necro took a toll on you though, and will make sure to pray for your fast recovery! =)
