Is it possible, to implement the following feature:

if I switch to windows/Linux/MacOS mute all the sounds from OpenTTD.

So I can leave the window open/minimize it, but can hear some music, make a phone call or something like this, where the sound is annoying...

Best regards

PS: i love your work :)
This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Won't implement
Additional comments about closing:  Thanks for the suggestion Samuel :) This one would require platform specific support for each OS. Unfortunately it's not a current goal for OpenTTD.

Flyspray clean up: more than 5 years old, and no obvious route forward for this one, so closing. If this offends, discuss with andythenorth in irc. Thanks.
