Hey,

I've been trying to figure out this but the game refuses to give any help

1- Is there a way to turn off ambient sound? I want to play my own music so I turn down background music, sound FX and system sound but the ambient sound is still there (Wind, Owls.....etc)

2- Is there a way to turn off other people crafts, level ups,....etc messages? The only thing I found is to turn off system messages but that would also hide my own information (Anima, points granted....etc)

3- How can you use the DoL secondary tool (such as Fishing)?

4- Where can I see my character Accessory limit counter? I tried equipping a few accessories but I got a message saying I have reach my limit?!

thanks,

Not at the moment. I can't stand it because I can turn down the music, game sounds, and system sounds but the ambient noise is just as loud as ever. At the very least they need to add a master volume slider that controls everything.

Nope, the system message filter is the only way to block those messages at the moment.

When you approach a specific type of node the ! makes you use the tool automatically. For example, as a miner when you find a node inside a cave the ! is for "quarry" instead of "mine" and it causes you to use your sledgehammer automatically in place of your pickaxe.

Right under where your rings and wrists are. It's a small set of numbers that says ??/12 with the ?? being your current number of used "slots".

There is an option to mute the game from the external settings, but obviously that mutes everything and you must reboot the game to turn it back on

If you open the game in windows mode, you can adjust the game master volume by going to the sound mixer in windows. I can do it in 7, not so sure about vista.
