I played with my friend online and he keeps having trouble hearing me during gameplay. I checked my mic options but everything seems to be fine. I use my mic all the time with other games and other apps and it's working fine and people can hear me clearly.
But yeah, I used the same tweak and it seemed to definitely help. I can't say for sure if it'll work 100% of the time (with zero cut-offs) but it seemed fine the last time I was using the mic in-game. --- "because im not trying to look smart to win my argument, i have an actual case so i dont need to resort to tactics like that" - FreeIpod
omg i need help i dont even have a mic and its making noises to other players like the mic was next to me speakers can some one tell how to mute the mic?? i already tried some thing but its still the same HELP!!!
They have the option to turn your mic off in game now, so use it.
What you've probably got is the "recording source" as your output (which is usually what you need to record sound in games when using xfire or Fraps or whatever to record your game). If turning the mic off wouldn't work (and I don't know why it wouldn't) you can always just go to your sound preferences (wherever that may be since it's slightly different in Vista) and turn the recording source to "microphone" or "Aux" or whatever is guaranteed to not be used...
