  • We have reset all sound volume sliders and the Reverb setting now that sound is working properly with the new sound system. Previous volume settings wouldn't result in a great audio environment. Reverb was reset because many users turned it off to try to help with sound problems we had just after launch. Now that it's all working, these settings have been restored so that everything sounds great. Feel free to change them as desired.
