  • USB Mic not working in BF2142

    Okay. Here's my problem:

    I'm using the Logitech USB mic that came with RockBand, and it works fine in TeamSpeak. However, as soon as I try and work it in-game, it doesn't work.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    If you are using vista, run teamspeak as administrator.

        It may just be that the game only recognizes analog mics and not USB mics. There have been several threads in this part of the forum about USB mics and that they don't work well with some games and you can't capture audio from it when using FRAPS.

              Go to your Windows sound settings and make sure the USB mic is the default recording/voice device. That's what BF uses for mic input.

                Logitech mic is the default recording device, and I can hear in-game sounds and everyone else's voice fine. It's just mine isn't being broadcast to everyone else.

                  Go to Volume Properties and make sure you didn't mute Microphone.

                    Are you using the Creative X-Fi setting?

                    I know when I was it would work for about 5 min and then my VOIP would stop, I switched it to Hardware and haven't had a problem since....

                      Be sure it's the recording properties and not the playback properties, too.

                          Have you tried running the Windows voice test in the sound settings? If it works there, it should work in BF2142. TS and Skype don't necessarily rely on Windows sound settings and can use something different than what is set in Windows sound settings.

                            I'm not really sure if this was said before. Anyways, in TS under settings switch from Wave>Direct Sound. Then under your input/output, put your input as your default driver and your output for your headset driver. This worked for my fatality USB headset, good luck

                              16note, did you set a key bind that is your PTT (Push To Talk) key in BF2142?

                              Sidetrack:
                              Is it usually this big of a headache with USB microphones?

                              I've never had this much trouble with my 4+ years old Logitech analog microphone. Plug it in, set a key bind, get on with the talking.
