Question from davidjr7
Microphone Boost ?
When I play, people say they can barely hear me, even though I have mic boost enabled under Options. Are there any console commands I can use, or another option that can work?
In all other games it seems to work fine, I'm just having this issue with L4D.
Jacky_j, I don't know why I didn't think of that. Microphone was already checked, but there was a 'Advanced' tab under it, and I hit that and in there was another option to 'Boost Mic'. So, I'm going to test it out.
Thanks for pointing me in the right general direction.

Under Windows XP, Open up "Sounds and Audio Devices" in control panel. Click Advanced under "Device Volume". Go to Options -> Properties. Select Recording and make sure microphone is checked. Hit Okay. Make sure the microphone volume is up.

I'm afraid it might be a problem on your end, or maybe they need to turn up there speakers, or THEIR microphone recieveing, worst comes to worst, get a new microphone, shouldnt be too costly, $10 for a desk (which is what i use, cause headphone mics break WAYYY too easily)
Microphone boost isn't really a good thing, your mic just might be too quiet, see if it is turned up all the way, and if necessary, buy a new mic/headset, i have the plantronics gamecom 1, and i got it off newegg for $20.
I always recommend mic boost. It's always one of the first things I enable when setting up a computers sound options.
But yeah, there are 3 places to look. L4D audio/voice options, windows sound settings, and mic boost.
