This is on Windows 7 using the recent Snapshot ef4a40 (as well as several before; this issue exists for some time …)

Adding a .exe to the blacklist via the Add button a file-selection window will open, where you can only select existing (.exe) files.
The exe will then be added with it's full path.

The overlay will still display; probably because it uses the full path, in contrary to the default entries, which only use executable names.

This issue was with CoD4, iw3mp.exe, for me.
As punkbuster seems to kick for the mumble overlay, adding this as a default entry is debatable; as it's only an issue with PB enabled; which it is for most ppl. probably though …

    Tested on Win7 x64 and the exclusion list worked. Tested it with Non-Steam AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! demo and Left 4 Dead 2. Both showed the overlay by default and hid it when they were added to the exclusion list.

    Are full paths added to the blacklist for you?
    That is also on the recent snapshot?

    To add that … It’s the steam version of CoD4. I launch it via steam, the exe running in the process list is iw3mp.exe indeed though.

    Mumble adds the full path. Was a development snapshot, two or so days old - can't check which one now.

    Blacklist and whitelist entries are "path agnostic", i.e., the overlay filters just needs the basename to match.

    You should restart the client after modifying the list, since the overlay retrieves it from the registry, and the client might not write back changes until it exits.

    I’m using it in portable-mode (mumble.ini), and the entry was there for months now (from when I last played it, and it didn't work neither).

    So, maybe it’s write ini, read registry? :P

    The blacklist/whitelast always uses the registry. Or at least it is supposed to. Could you check your config file/registry to see if it goes into the right location.

    What / where should I look for?
    In the mumble.ini [overlay]-section I have
    blacklist=iexplore.exe, ieuser.exe, vlc.exe, dbgview.exe, opera.exe, chrome.exe, acrord32.exe, explorer.exe, K:\_\Steam\SteamApps\common\call of duty 4\iw3mp.exe
    whitelist=@Invalid()

    So it did add it to the ini file.

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Mumble\Mumble
    and children do not have any overlay key.

    So, dd0t made clear to me this is expected as the overlay will only read from registry whereas mumble will read and write to murmur.ini in mobile mode.

    Unfortunately, I don't think leaving it the current way is a good option; or is the portable / .ini mode not officially supported (like -m)?
    At least some info should be put into the console on start or better yet the settings overlay tab should display info if in portable mode.

    With 1.2.4 the overlay black/whitelists will be exchanged via shared memory which will also solve this issue.
