However, what I wanted to say in my aggrevatingly written post was that I, personally, don't want to get into implementing suggestions or requests that assess the difficulty of implementation.
That’s why I suggest to at least add posibility to map a keyboard shortcut for sound mute/unmute.

Re: mute the game while alt-tabbed

And would it please be possible to at least have a key binding for "Mute"?
It could be unset by default so users won't mute game by mistake, but other users could map it themselves if they wanted.

Re: mute the game while alt-tabbed

Detecting when a window is in focus or not is (apparently) a non-solved problem. Some operating systems with some drivers and some situations may have a program in focus but from a code perspective it never gets the "focus gained" and so the code thinks "not focused" and all kin...

because you can solve the problem without Wube having to spend time on it. It's called "User experience". πŸ™‚ Lots of things could have been actually left out from the game, but in fact are there just because Factorio developers care for user's experience and quality of life. This proposal ...

Re: mute the game while alt-tabbed

True, it would be nice if most of major OSes supported this feature.
But until then many game developers decided to support this feature from within the game itself.
It would be nice if Factorio could be among those games.

Re: mute the game while alt-tabbed

I learned to play Factorio completely without sounds because of this. I used to turn the sounds all the way up/down each time when switching to/from Factorio, but it has become so tedious that I am now playing completely without sounds all the time. It's a pitty that I don't get to enjoy all the gre...

Re: Friday Facts #350 - Electric mining drill redesign

Looks really amazing. But maybe the best part is the addition of the status LED so it will be really easy to visually distinguish depleted mines from the clogged ones.

Re: mute the game while alt-tabbed

I don't get it either. I can't think of any reason why not to have this optional feature.
But I still hope that some day it will get to Factorio. But until then I am forced to play the game on mute most of the time.

Re: mute the game while alt-tabbed

Can we please have this feature for 1.0 release? This one little option in settings would have made a great impact to quality of life of the game.

Re: mute the game while alt-tabbed

For this very reason I nowadays play factorio completely without sound.
It was tiresome to go to settings to mute sounds every time I wanted to keep factorio running in the background.
I pretty much got used to it.

Re: [macOS] Allow dark window titlebar when system dark mode is enabled

I just found out that it can be forced on per-app basis by this command (run in terminal):

Code: Select all

defaults write com.factorio NSRequiresAquaSystemAppearance 0
(don't forget to restart game after this change)

But app's native support would be of course better.

[macOS] Allow dark window titlebar when system dark mode is enabled

macOS has now for some time support for apps to natively switch between light and dark appearance based on system's setting. It would be really cool if Factorio also supported this so window titlebar could be dark when dark mode is enabled. I like to play Factorio in windowed mode and this light tit...

Will there be ability to mute game sounds once the window loses focus? It would be really useful.

Re: Friday Facts #336 - Offshore pump redesign

It's always great that you are adding more and more high-res graphics for game entities.
But it would be also great to fix this bug which makes all new graphics looks fuzzy in map view while zooming.
