Small bug with sound mute

There's a "Mute / Unmute" function which can be bound to keyboard and it works. However it has one problem, steps to reproduce
- mute sound with this function
- close heli-x
- start again
- unmute doesn't work.

It does seem to change something, because if you unmute and go to "Sound" window, you can see sound enabled. But you still heat no sound.

thank you for your message. You are right. However, it is a feature:

For weak computers, the loading of the sound driver at the start of HELI-X the program can run into problems. Thus, this behavior is a workaround for those. I am not sure, if this is still of relevance. Maybe, ww change this in a future version.

Thank you for your support!

I think it would still be fine for slow computers even if it would be fixed. User doesn't have to press the key "unmute" if he has computer problems. Actually "unmute" tries to enabled the sound, but it will only start working if you later go to "Sound" window and close it with "OK".

Thank you, for great sim :)
