Unmute mic after starting game

Discussion in 'Guides and help' started by OZtwo, May 5, 2013.

  1. Yesterday I found a faster way to unmute the mic. It seems the mic and system volume are being changed due to MA's bad programming in having the Voice Chat set the system global settings and not just in game.

    To Unmute the mic:

    1. click the blue bar graph next to the mic ingame to open Voice Chat Options
    2. Put a check mark next to Proximity System
    3. Click Apply (not the check mark to close dialog)
    4. Remove the Check Mark just added to Proximity System
    5. Click Apply or the green Check Mark to close dialog.

    The mic will unmute, but will not mute again when you disable Proximity System.

    Also note that the volume controls here in this dialog will set the system volume levels system wide when game is started. So make sure you have the Microphone and Speaker Volumes set here. If you have them turned off, they will set the system defaults when you start the game....

    oh!Cool that sounds handy I noticed this was what was happening too! I didn't know how to fix it though... for ages I thought my sound card wasn't working!

    hmm turning off proximity meant it didn't work altogether. Also it didn't help with the muting situation either... :( ah well...
  4. Well, when all this started a few updates ago the first way I went to unmute and get sound back:

    Unmute Mic:
    1. After loading game, from the System Desktop right click your Speaker icon in the system tray next to the system clock.
    2. From the popup menu select Recording Devices
    3. Double click your active microphone
    4. Select the Levels Tab
    5. Unmute mic by clicking the microphone
    6. Last, to make sure you have a good lvl, set the microphone volume
    7. And...click Ok.

    Restore Game Sound:
    1. After loading game, from the System Desktop click your Speaker icon in the system tray next to the system clock.
    2. From the popup menu, select Mixer
    3. Using the Horizontal move to the right or left until you see the volume for Entropia Universe Client and then set volume to your liking
    But my new way has seemed to help others as well. I just hope MA will get around and fix this stupid bug.

    yeh thats who I fixed it too but I have to do quite often... I guess maybe I should assign that button to a different one other than alt...
