Option to choose audio device for specific program?
So, hello there. I have a bit of a tricky problem. Well, its not so much a problem as a lack of options.
I'm going to preface this with the fact i have a USB headset (i know, i know) is a logitech G35)
The way it works is this. I'm playing SWTOR lately, it doesn't have an audio option to choose the audio device (a huge oversight if you ask me). When i played LOTRO, what i would often do is set it to play the audio through the speakers when i was on skype (or vent) so i didn't have to wear my headphones, as it tends to hurt after too long. I put the audio through the speakers (which i can do with skype) and just set them down on the desk to use the mic that way.
However, because SWTOR doesn't have an option to change the device that the audio plays through it automatically goes through the headphones. Now normally it wouldn't be a big problem because i'd just change the program to use the speakers but i can't in this case, so i was wondering if there is a hardware or software way to override that. because they are a USB set, you can't even just not plug in the speaker plug.
Anyone have any ideas or am i just out of luck?
PS: I just have standard onboard sound, i'm not positive what it is, its just saying "HD Audio", its from a Gigabyte P55M-UD2 motherboard if that helps.
