I'd like to hear the sound output while it is not focused. Is there an option for it?

  • Hmmm, checked your config? I just run it on a Windows 8 computer. Play F19 Stealth Fighter and even when I tab out its breaking my eardrums with the screech.

  • How many cores does your CPU have? Have you reset the config options back to the defaults? What games have you tried?

  • My CPU has 4 cores, so far I tried with Earthworm Jim 1 & 2, and Pro Pinball: Timeshock. The ones from GOG pre-configured.

The only workaround I got is by playing with the priority option. Back then I had it in:


Setting this to highest,highest would try to make the game work generally (with sound and everything), even when not focused. Although this isn't working at all (i.e. if I focus the Chrome browser, Dosbox will still be silenced).
