Ever since Garry has updated the voice codec to that silk codec things have been horrible for me. I have tried a skype freetalk headset, zoom H2 and now a pulsewave 2 gaming headset and all of them still cut out when I talked. I could talk for about 2-3 seconds and then I’d cut out and then I wouldn’t be able to talk for another 4 or 5 and so seconds. It’s really annoying and I don’t know what to do about it. I’m sure it is probably out of my reach as Garry may actually be the only one to “fix this.” But, I don’t see the problem we had with the previous one. It was great and nobody had any problems, and it was just convenient. Now so many people are getting this problem, I being one of them.
So you went out and bought several headsets, potentially needlessly, despite there being easier attempts at solving it, like a fresh install of gmod?
If there are so many people with the problem then why is it yours is the first thread on the matter? Also, garry didn’t change it valve did, and at any rate it was only for steam, not games, though changing it is probably possible.
I hadn’t bought them. They were conveniently lying around.
Skype headset broke, month later I figured I’d use a studio microphone, but the tripod was getting annoying and so I had decided to buy a headset of my own, specifically for gaming.
I had re-installed gmod and still no luck. I have also tested it out in other games to confirm that it wasn’t a problem on my end. It also helps to think as if facepunch wasn’t the only help forum on the internet :downs:
I highly doubt it will be changed, though, thank you for at least replying.
I have the same issues but mines not as bad as yours sounds to be. People just tell me all the time in gmod they didnt hear me cause I was breaking up. Yet I use vent, skype, teamspeak, mumble… you name it any other game even and my mic has no problems at all ONLY garrysmod does it tend to break up all the time.
As for a TF2 update screwing up gmod somehow it would not be the first time lol. I remember I while back there was a HUGE TF2 update that broke gmod for like 2 weeks.
But yeah I would like to see this issues resolved and sometime soon its getting annoying. I can PROMISE you its nothing to do with what mic or soundscard your running as much as a conflict with codec. Most likely there was some codec update or something that screwed it for some people that are running other codec that are conflictinig somewhere but im not about to go uninstalling all my codec for 1 games codec issues.
If anyone had some real ideas outside the realm of “I dont know what his problem REALLY is so I will just tell him to get a new mic” it would be greatly appreciated.
Oh on a sidenote im running a boomstick mic pluged into the soundcard port and my sound card is a SoundBlaster X-fi with latest drivers.
