Yes that is the desired behavior.
If you check the TTY output of the logging version you can see it will say it could not determine if external audio was playing, this is because the feature isn’t supported in the simulator.
We default to true no matter why it couldn’t determine the state because it’s better to err on the side of caution than tell the user external audio isn’t playing when it is.
Could you point me to that? I don’t see it in the docs. The only app I found to open .chm help files on Mac was "Chmox" which doesn’t seem to have the ability to search text. I also searched the header files in FMOD and don’t see any function called that. Thanks for your help!

I checked the docs too in that section but still don’t see anything about this function. This is also my entire fmodiphone.h file. I’m not trying to be difficult but I seriously cannot find anything about this function.
