How do I get JTAlertV2.manager to open in the windows Volume Mixer?
Sometimes when I start a session it does and sometimes it doesn't
I tried to execute it in Hamapps/JTAlert/plugins but it still
doesn't (when I do thisï¿½ I get what looks like a DOS screen that
flashes too quickly to read).
When it doesn't I get no sound alerts, nor the sound card test voice
In bullet point form because it is easier to read/follow...
- There were no changes to audio
management in the recent release. There haven't been any
changes for several releases.
- Application volume sliders appearing in
the Sound Mixer are controlled by Windows, JTAlert has no
control over that.
- The main JTAlert.exe executable doesn't
perform any audio playback and will not appear in the Mixer.
- All JTAlert audio is managed by the
"JTAlertV2.Manager.exe" process and it is this process that
will appear in the Mixer.
- Application volume sliders in the Mixer
will only become visible once Windows has detected a
sound-play type event from the application.
- An example from my Realtek (digital)
output tests ...
- Mixer before first sound is played
- Mixer after Windows has detected the
JTAlert sound-play event.
- To make your life easier, you can
perform Sound Output device changes and play tests from the
main JTAlert window without having to open the Settings
window. Via the "Sound" menu.
- I suggest you try tests against other
Sound devices regardless of whether they will produce sound.
Just a test to see if those devices will show "JTAlertV2.Manager"
in the mixer after a test sound is played.
- If "JTAlertV2.Manager" repeatedly
doesn't show in the Mixer for other audio devices then the
likely causes are your PC protection software interfering
and blocking the UDP control message sent from JTAlert to
the Manager process, the "JTAlertV2.Manager"
itself is not running or the Audio module of the Manager
is not initialized. You can check the status of all
Manager modules via the JTAlert "Help -> About" menu.
If you still can't resolve use the "Help"
(or "? ") -> "Contact Support" menu, on the main JTAlert
window, to send me your JTAlert files for analysis.
