Windows 8 Background Music
Hi Im having trouble with doom BFGs handling of Window sound.

Under Windows 8 the volume of background apps gets lowered when Communications (ie. Voice chat) is active.

To get around this I have done the following.

1. Steam->Settings->Voice and check the "Use push-to-talk key to transmit voice"
2. in DoomBFG set the following cvar 'net_voicePushToTalk 1'

This solves the problem but I would like to set the cvar on app launch.
Using steams commandline parameters doesn't work.
and have tried using autoexec.cfg and adding to config.cfg but with no luck.

As soon as I enter the cvar in the game console the problem is fixed.

Does anyone know where I can set it for a permanent solution??

Thanks for your time
