Default game volume

Is there anyway to lower the default startup volume for games?
I'm using WinUAE
I've unsuccessfully tried the following:

- Adjusting the master volume slider in the WinUAE menu and then saving a .uae file. Doesn't save setting and master slider goes back to 100.
- Manually changing the "sound_volume=" settings in the .uae configuration file. Has no effect.

I can't even seem to change the volume after I start the game in full-screen mode. Documentation says press F12 + , or . But every-time I hit F12 the menu for WinUAE pops up.

Bit stuck! Many thanks in advance.

I don't support old versions and I don't remember how it works in old versions or if it did change. END+<minus> and END+<plus> should be the default, or CTRL+END+<minus>/CTRL+END+<plus>.

It was never F12 + something. If you mean some 3rd party volume utility: you have to change the shortcut. Or get a keyboard with media keys

Many thanks, Toni!
End and -/+ worked in-game.
In the latest version of the emulator can you set the default volume via an ini file?
If so, I'll look into upgrading to the latest version.
Haven't done so far, as once I get an emulator stable and working well, I tend not to mess with it. The volume was the last piece of the jigsaw.
