Fix Talent Video Volumes?
So - I have my game volume turned down a good amount, since some parts can get pretty loud - killing like 30 enemies at once, or leveling up 40+ times in one EXP drop, so on. But consistently, whether the volume is at max or otherwise, the music for the talent videos is murderous
on my ears and my speakers. Ever since the talent system was implemented, the talents with video function have always been kinda ear-wrecking when selected. I've been kinda like "okay fine whatever just get through it" for a long time, but. The Pet Trainer Talent video. aaaAAAAAA
I do audio work professionally, and I have heard some absolutely horrifying noises come out of my speakers that I made myself through experimentation or by mistake, but the initial sound that the pet trainer video makes is like smashing a glass bottle while a cat attacks a chalkboard piped through a megaphone in one single startling burst. EVERY time I select that talent, my ears are left ringing for like 10 minutes after if I don't turn my computer volume to near-zero. I don't wear headphones usually when I play, I have my speaker volume set to around -10 dB, so my playback is genuinely dialed back a bit; but that video and a lot of the others just are SO MUCH louder than the rest of the game that they basically peak my computer's output. Even turning down the game's sound volume does not help very much, unless I want to play the game on mute.
So yeah. yeah. I legit just picked the talent just now and forgot to turn my speakers down and there's no reason why something like this in the game should cause hearing damage with moderate volume settings.
