Suudenly Mic won´t work

Question

Chriss    1

Hi, i played like 3-4 days ago DayZ, talked with a guy and everything worked fine but suddenly on the next days i met a guy, was talking to him... no reaction and had to text-rp then cause he wasn´t able to hear me which was an akward Situation.

I changed nothing in that time, after that i thought it was a problem with his setting cause i was in TS the same day and probably in TS, Skype... everything works but not in DayZ.

I tried different setting, my hs-mic... nothing :/

So since the last update they somehow changed something that affects my mic?

I found people who have problems like this but they haven´t found a solution yet.

[ My mic is plugged directly into the Mainboard, using a mic like this: http://www.boppshop.de/images/shure_sm58s.jpg which is connected to a part of a karaoke-system which i use to control gain and so on and then to the pc. I use it since i play DayZ, no dropouts and how i said, i still use it in TS without issues]

Has anybody a idea or the same problem?

Make sure you have all other recording devices disabled, as this can cause conflictions.

Then, when you launch DayZ, alt-tab out, disable and re-enable the device your using.

This fixed my personal issues with my microphone, I've just become used to having to disable and re-enable my microphone when I launch certain games that will screw it up, which includes DayZ.

Let me know if it helps!

Make sure that your mic is set like this in the In-game options:

If everything is set like this, and you're still having issues, could be the issue that FlapJack stated above. Hope you get this fixed!

Sound Sources is an option that sets how many sounds you can hear at one time when in the game. You can increase it to 128 (I think), but it requires a little more CPU power. It shouldn't matter what this is set at, as it doesn't relate to your microphone.

Go to your playback devices in your mixer and make sure your microphone is the selected one also.

Also keep us updated.

ok, so i launched DayZ, tapped out, disabled all Inputs, enabled them again and disabled the one i dont use, so that there is only the mic enabled that i use, its also set as Standard and everything else is disabled but still no luck...

EDIT: Found out, that steam won´t accept my mic, maybe thats the reason. I never noticed it cause i never used voice over steam. After all it won´t accept any Input of the Mainboard, so im gonna try it with a sound-Card, probably have to get one firt ^^

I´ll Keep you updated, thanks for the hints so far :)

A quick Update:

Kanen helped me, finding a solution. We tried different Settings again and met in a offical Server for testing but no sucess so far.

Im trying with a soundcard and/or reinstalling DayZ and see if that helps.

Thanks so far.

Hey Chriss have you managed to get your soundcard yet or re-install DayZ?

You could also try purchasing a new MIC or borrowing a friends to see if it's just a problem within your hardware.

Keep us posted please.

I think I had this problem to with a new mic a while ago.  I do not remember what I 've changed with settings, but I did a dayz reinstall.

EDIT: After asking someone. I think I changed the Bits and HZ settings.

Its in: Sound/Right click on new mic/ Properties of loudspeakers or Properties of mic.

I hope you understand this haha, let me know if its doing anything.
