The positional audio is not working with BC2 on the latest build of Mumble and BC2 build 795745
Steam or Retail?
I updated it for Steam and it's worked for ~3 people so far, but I don't have retail to get the offsets.
It's retail. I have it on Origin for my laptop, but have not tried it as of yet.
What did you do to patch the steam installs?
You need to use CheatEngine on a non-Punkbuster server to scan for the new offsets, then we can patch the plugin.
I can do it if you're patient, mkrautz (Mumble OSX developer) pointed out I can take the CD key from my Steam version and redeem it on Origin to get the retail/origin version - so once it's done downloading I'll see if I can figure out the offsets for it and then both versions should work.
Thanks fwaggle. I can wait to see what you come back with. I have my own BC2 server, but I am not too familiar with CheatEngine and would not be absolutely sure what I am looking for. If you don't mind, I can wait to see your findings.
With advice from our OSX developer, I figured out that I can use my Steam CD key to get the retail version from Origin. I've tested this as good as I can (none of my friends are online at the moment, and they all have Steam version and I'm not about to ask them to redownload the same game via yucky Origin), but it works reliably on my one machine at grabbing the coordinates, and it looks correct.

Before reporting it works, please make sure it doesn't do something silly like pan backwards or anything like that.
If it works out I'll reopen the same pull request and then both versions should work for everyone.
fwaggle, this worked beautifully!!!! Thank you for the update. One last question... will there be direction audio in BF3? We have a server that we'll be bringing up on Monday and are eagerly waiting to start playing on Tuesday. The couple of us that tested this patch have now been bitten with the Direction Audio Bug and would love to see this in BF3.
I'm not sure if there will be or not. I'm not planning on buying BF3 for a while, so I certainly won't be doing the plugin for it. It all depends on who gets motivated to figure it out. :)
Thanks for the report, I'll open the pull request and see if I can get it built for everyone.
... and pcgod committed it last night. My Mumble just downloaded another version of the plugin so everyone should be set. \o/
