Is there any automated way to have audio turn off on background EQ windows and only give audio to the focused window? That way when I switch to different characters in the foreground I don't have to fiddle with their settings to get sound on/off?
You could just drop a sub in your Main loop to set any EQ window in the foreground to load whatever your desired sound settings are and to turn all sound settings off when in the background.
Slider values are base 5 iirc, so to set your volume to 50 on slider values you'd use 10, something like this would work I think. I'm not logged on to test it but if it doesn't work let me know.
