Another Ventrillo Question
« on: May 28, 2009, 06:58:41 am »
I have just had the soundcard removed from my PC and now use the on-board sound (Real Tech). When testing my Ventrillo, all seemed to be working ok (as far as I could tell) but I keep getting the following message:

VoiceCommMixerStart: Invalid voice mux selection. (-1)

Is there a problem??

Also, is the great Ventrillo tutorial (Byron's I think) still here, I can't seem to find it??  :twit:

Under Setup > Hardware input mixer.  It's on the right hand side right in the middle.  There is a drop down for "Mux".  It's probably set to your old sound card in the dropdown "Mixer" above the mux.  I don't use any additional settings there.  Try setting Mixer to "none" and see what happens.

I can get on vent and help you out if you need to test it.

Yep, thanks Marcus, that's the one I was looking for, Pete's.  :yes:

It is very helpful even though it didn't directly cover Mux.

For some reason when I first tested Vent today, the Mux option didn't show up, the drop downs were blank. I went into windows sound properties and changed a few settings and now the Mux option has appeared in Vent. I don't know what exactly fixed it, but who cares, it seems ok now.
If it isn't working, I'll no doubt get some feedback in my next SJ event, or maybe we can have a quick chat tomorrow sometime Marcus.

I have not seen your problem.  What I do know, it that I would use an add in sound card if possible, as using the onboard card robs your mo board of memory and performance.

He just had the dedicated sound card removed to try and resolve some crashing issues I believe. 

Also I run with on board audio.  It works perfectly, and I notice no performance hit.  Granted this machine is bad ass, and courtesy of a few generous Simjunkies.  In my old box it was a different story, the addition of a sound card really helped that old clunker.

When you removed your soundcard, did you remove it from the device manager also?
You may have to go into sound and Audio devices in the control panel and reset your default sound device.
