Hello everyone.

We have decided to phase out the Mixed Reality Forums over the next few months in favor of other ways to connect with us.

The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.

The plan between now and the beginning of May is to clean up old, unanswered questions that are no longer relevant. The forums will remain open and usable.

On May 1st we will be locking the forums to new posts and replies. They will remain available for another three months for the purposes of searching them, and then they will be closed altogether on August 1st.

So, where does that leave our awesome community to ask questions? Well, there are a few places we want to engage with you. For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality. If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers. And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.

Turn of maddening wind chimes in Cliff House

The chimes were cute the first 10 minutes of using WMR, now, they are like nails on a chalk board(the randomness of the loud tones is actually more like water torture). How in the living hell do I stop this constant random chiming from going on in the environment?

  • Good to know thanks

    I dunno also noticed the other night when I actually had headphones connected they weren't there or maybe just less noticeable than when they are blasting out of the speakers?
  • Until a week or two ago, I hadn't been able to use WMR since Dec 21st because of MS updates killing optimus style notebooks like mine(that I purpose bought cyber Monday and 12 days of Christmas through MS). I haven't had a lot of time to spend playing with it due to the notebook sitting useless and work. Saturday I finally spent a few hours in it and the chimes just seemed to get worse and worse and I finally just hit the breaking point of irritation. Honestly, I'd be happy if they enhanced holograms so you could add "always playing" sounds with a diffusion radius. If they want to drop some chimes from the ceiling near the water front, fine..I can delete it while others might find them soothing.
