    Default Audio Issue

    Beta forum is not up right now, so I guess I will put this here, since it seems like the best place for it.

    When I play MMOs like this I usually group up with friends to do so. We all usually sign into a program like vent/axon/etc so we can chat while we play. Most games I have played in the past have an option in the Audio menu to allow the game sounds to continue playing through your speakers even if you have a headset plugged in. If Rift actually does allow this, I can' t seem to find the option anywhere. As I only have a headset with one earpiece, I end up having to turn down the game's master volume to 15 just so I can hear/understand what people are saying. So, I guess this is just a request/suggestion to add the option to play game sounds through speakers, regardless of whether other audio devices were connected to your PC.

    I use a USB headset so this is how my existing MMO works. It would be nice to have this option here, too.

    havent seen this option in the mmo i played. eq2 and wow and horizons.
    maybe i just never see it though. the solution i had to this in the past was my sound card that i installed. i would use it for the game and the onboard audio for vent. worked out perfect for me

    It was an option in wow, but I'm not sure about the other two.
