Is there any way to turn off that infuriating Klaxon when the ship is on fire.

I appreciate, as always, that "One man's meat is another man's poison".

Therefore there may be (many) players who love the sound of the klaxon horn when the ship is on fire. Maybe it helps with their immersion.

Fine for them. But I find it infuriating, and something which detracts from the ever-dwindling enjoyment of the game.

 

Is there any way to turn the wretched thing off?

Will someone please tell me before I go crazy?

Couldnt agree more. Once again i believe, WG did that to screw with peoples minds. It only used to happen if you have 2 fires, now it happens if you only have 1 fire. So if you hear that sounds, you are more inclined to DCP it :fish_palm:

Perhaps there is an option in the sound menu?

 

Im irked as well. I mean its only one fire and it goes off. Imagine if its 3 or 4. The sound of a nuke going off then?

Think of it as a handy audio-reminder.

How about when the ship is burning along with the screen edges ,can you turn that off?

Go into Settings, select "Reduced Fire Effect". They should make that shut off the Klaxon, too.

I don't think "Reduced Fire Effect" works. :(

 

How about adding option when to start and volume slider for it? Like if you get 2 or 3 fires only then the irritating thing to start playing.. :cap_hmm:

Sorry, my fault : it lowers fire graphic effects. I said that it should be made to turn off the Klaxon, as it annoys the crud out of me, too.
