So I'm old school and still using The Games Factory...
One of my testers has reported that the volume of sound effects compared to music in my game is too loud. I haven't really noticed this myself, or at least I've noticed the sound effects are louder but not uncomfortably louder, so I imagine it's an issue with how the windows volume control is set for the user playing the game. Still, I was wondering, if there is any way in-game to control volume of sound in TGF, be it a standard TGF feature or by way of a plug-in. If the latter, do you know where a plug-in can be found? I can't seem to find them online anymore...
I tried playing with the 'mixer' object but it didn't really do anything.
If you're using midi for your music then the volume for that is controlled independently of the game. As in, controlled by windows, and unfortunately if your friend is running vista then the volume control for midi has been removed.

Probably better with .ogg, cuts the file size a lot and no loss of quality.
dont know what to tell you then. you on vista or win7?
you really should get tgf2 or the most recommended mmf2. or if you dont have the money go for construct - http://www.scirra.com/ (still in beta but pretty stable and awesome) or gamemaker - http://www.yoyogames.com/ (crap software for noobs).
