GW2 + Mumble == Best Friends
« on: October 30, 2013, 06:47:30 PM »
I don't know if you all know this, you can configure Mumble to have "positional audio" when playing Guild Wars 2.

What it basically means is if you and a friend both have it enabled, you hear your friend in the appropriate ear depending on where they are standing near you in game.

Here's a couple of links:
http://mumble.sourceforge.net/Positional-Audio
http://wiki.guildwars2.com/wiki/Mumble

So.. here's how to enable it.
0. Start up Mumble
1. Configure (at the top of the mumble window)
2. Settings
3. Check Advanced (at the bottom-left of window)
4. Plugins (which appeared when you check advanced)
5. Check "Link to Game and Transmit Position"
... and you're ready to run around your pal in a circle making funny sounds


Oh! and to enable the overlay, start guild wars with the following options: (you'll have to create a shortcut then add it to the end of the path)
-email youremail -password yourpassword -nopatchui

The no patchui means you don't get the login and patch window so make sure that you've updated before you start the game with the options.


Have fun!

is that working reliably now? tried it a lot, but it wouldn't work 80% of the times and be very hit and miss (stops working every few minutes) so I gave up on it

Positional Audio or Overlay?
I only recently discovered and enabled them both.. but they seem to be ok.

positional... it used to be so dodgy that it was more annoying than useful. good to hear that its been improved

Why isn't this a thing in all games?
