    I have a little problem. To kill time I sometimes play Skyroads, an MS-Dos game. Well, there's no volume option on the game and I like to listen to music while I play. Is there any way to "mute" an application (maybe through terminal?). I figured I'd ask just in case there is. Thanks.

    Well ... I'm not a mac user but I use DOSBox... us Windows people have a dosbox.conf that has this section:

    [mixer]
    # nosound -- Enable silent mode, sound is still emulated though.
    # rate -- Mixer sample rate, setting any devices higher than this will
    # probably lower their sound quality.
    # blocksize -- Mixer block size, larger blocks might help sound stuttering
    # but sound will also be more lagged.
    # prebuffer -- How many milliseconds of data to keep on top of the blocksize.

    nosound=false
    rate=22050
    blocksize=2048
    prebuffer=10


    If you have the same, just set "nosound=true". :)
