Skype lowers volume of LoL (game) and can't make calls when it's open.

I play League of LEgends and Skype likes to lwoer it's volume when a call is open. I cannot change it in the volume mixer. It annoy me skype would do **bleep** like that sutomatically without even prompting for it.

 

Also when LoL is open I cannot make/accept calls. It simply won't let me. If I click call it just blinks and and says the call didn't go through. How do you fix these stupid skype errors?

it's not Skype that is lowering the volume, it is WINDOWS 7

Then how do I fix it? -.-

 

Also there's still the problem of skype not making/taking calls with the client open.

Re: Skype lowers volume of LoL (game) and can't make calls when it's open.

just to address one half of the problem, which is Skype lowers the volume of other applications, just enter mmsys.cpl in the RUN command.  Click the Communications tab then select Do Nothing from the list.  Save.

 

:happy:

if this issue only happens when you play that particular game, why do you assume that Skype is at fault and not the game?

The problem is not with the game. It is with skype. It also happens with other games so it obviously is skype.. Maybe instead you could offer an actual solution instead of making comments that offer to real help whatsoever.

I didn't actually say it was the game -- I asked why you thought it was -- how was I to know that other games are affected?

I told you that the volume issue was NOT Skype and I was right -- so shoot me for not having the details on how to fix it at hand

 

have a nice day and good luck with your game

That actually did not fix the volume issue. It is always set at "do nothing" so no you were actually not right. Nice try though.

I'm looking for a useful suggestion. Prime mover had the right idea. Simply comming in and saying "It's not skype" then not answering half the question offers to real use at all.

so why didn't you say so in response to Primemover before then?

 

oh, I guess you forgot, just like you forgot to mention that multiple games were affected . . .

or it is possibly because I just tried it then?

 

Go troll on someone else's topic. No one likes people who just try to grief others.

 

Also I thought you were leaving?
