Default Mic + VOIP never works (vanilla+PR)

apparently, my mic does not work period when it comes to BF2. Ive tried using the BF2VoiceSetup.exe that came with the original BF2, doesnt pick up anything. I have never gotten the mic to work with BF2 ever, and it is getting immensely irritating as this is a problem that ive been having for years and I have yet to find a workable fix to it.

BF2VoiceSetup doesnt pick up anything from my mic

BF2 does not pick up anything from my mic if I try to test the mic. (voip button does absolutely nothing, does not transmit at all)

PR does not pick up anything. (voip button does absolutely nothing, does not transmit at all)

Mumble however, does pick up my mic, but that doesnt help if the game doesnt allow me to use it.

my mic works perfectly fine with ALL of the rest of my programs including games.

I have a Logitech G930 headset (not that it matters, as this is a problem that has persisted no matter what mic i use) and i have no idea how to check what my audio card is. my MoBo is a ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 if that helps. also, if it helps, I am playing BF2 off of Steam.

and no, its not a port forwarding problem, if it was a problem with ports, then why would BF2VoiceSetup not pick up my mic at all?

So, go to the punkbuster website, download the 3 mgb file, seleect bf2 and update the software. It worked for me.

Best line yet...

yes, PB is updated, i have used the PB updater multiple times, as most servers will kick you if you dont have the latest version of PB. not only that, but PB automatically checks for updates when you install PR, so as far as I know, its not a PB problem.

I am using a USB headset, which means my mic is not connected to a mic port, dxdiag does not detect any sound input, so i cant actually change any settings.

Well since the G930 is just the G35 wireless version...

The voice setup has been known not to pick stuff up while it works in-game. You'll have to test in-game to be 100% sure. Please let us know when you get a chance. No hurry
