I've recently joined a guild where mumble is the main Voice communication.
at first there didn't seem to be any problems but it is only under certain
When i start up my computer and run Mumble there is no problems. I can open
WoW easly and there is no problems until i hit a Layer chance inside WoW. When
i hit the new layer the game freezes. It can also be zone change or something
else but mostly the layer causes the first freeze.
Then i have to force WoW to close and when i run launcher or directly wow.exe
it simply opens a window and stops there. White screen and just loading
If i however close Mumble Wow.exe starts in less than 3 seconds and i'm able
to log in.
If i start wow with mumble closed and i log in to the character selection
screen and the start mumble, i can't log into a character.
If i log in completly before Mumble is reopened i can open mumble and play
until i hit a change in the game which then causes a freeze.
If i restart my computer i can open mumble first then WoW then i can play for
a while longer than the other solutions. there goes some time before the layer
changes will cause a freeze.
I've tried Version 1.2.2, 1.2.3, and the new version of 1.2.3.
All programs have been run with and without administrator mode in all possible
combinations. nothing works.
Mumble stays unaffected along with everything else. only program affected by
this is WoW.exe
PC specs and OS:
System settings is Windows 7 Home edition, windows is up to date.
64-bit system and i run with DirectX11
Nvidia Geforce GT 550M Cuda 2GB
Rather fast connection.
Firewall set to gaming mode(allow everything)
(Drivers updated yesterday due to other problems caused by outdated drivers)
Best regards and hope you can give me a solution
Make sure you have the overlay and positional audio features turned OFF. Try
again and see if it is still happening.
I highly recommend to the developers that these features be off by default,
during the installation wizard. They are always the first things people
suggest turning off in case of problems.
It worked i think. the game started when mumble was open but i don't have time
to test the rest right now.
Was having the exact same issue and BobBank's reply resolved it.
