*OFFICIAL* Team Fortress 2 Thread *56k Warning* - Page 17

post #161 of 233
I am having a problem getting my headset w/voice mic to work in TF2. In the options of TF2 I do the mic test and it works fine, but when i join a game where I know ppl are using a mic, I can never talk. It simply never works.

I even went under the steam console (tab + shift) and set up the mic/headset there, and did the test. Again it works fine, but just never in an actual game that I join. Is there something I am missing here? I know this should be very simple. The headset is an Altec Lansing brand. I know the mic isnt faulty as it works in the setup / test part of the game.

Arg, im at a loss! Any ideas would be nice. Also, what are some good headsets I should be looking at. I bought this one on an impulse buy, as normally I do my research but seeing this is TF@, I wanted the headset asap!

Also another comment / question: How do we know what games will work on on a dualcore system like my opteron 170.? Many games I play, I find out later after getting some weird artifacting on screen ect, that I must disable one of the cores (clicking off cpu affinity) to make a game work correctly again. So far with TF2, I havent been getting any wierd stuff, so I havent been disabling any cores. Is there some kind of general guideline as to know when to disable a core or not? Or is this just a test / trial and error kind of thing?

Interested in the same. Hell, I'd just like to find an active TF2 forum, other than the STEAM ones.

Imho, that looks like a really stupid game. I also don't see how those graphics could challenge any card.
