Ability to change audio device in-game

Recommended Posts

I tend to switch between speakers and headphones a lot. Speakers when I am not gaming, headphones when I am. Sometimes I boot the game forgetting I still have the speakers enabled and once I get in game there is no way to change it to the headphones without restarting the game. Would be nice if there was a drop down menu added in the audio options that allows you too choose your audio input/output.

Biggest Problem in that case for me is, that if i Forget to plug in headphone/mic before starting the game, my headphone works, but noone hears my voice.

+1 this is needed. The game also does not respect changes in default device (windows sond settings) after the game has been started. It continues to output to whichever device was selected initially.

 

Having the option to select the device manually in the game would be a great feature. And the game not following windows settings is just a bug.

 sorry for digging out that old topic but i still think it should be a priority to implement that... other games like world of tanks implemented it in the beginning of the year... (or was it end last year?) it should be possible for you guys too! (hope the developers or admins read this and send it to the right people!)

Greetings, have a nice Christmas and a happy new Year

You reminded me that there was a problem I experienced with this too.

A few sessions ago Squad thought it was a great idea to use my Vive microphone instead of my standard headset. I had to disable the Vive in my hardware after exiting the game just to get the game to select my default choice. A drop-down of detected hardware would prevent some headaches from others having a similar issue.

Only happened once though, and it was long after sessions of swapping between VR and not. Just one of those occasions where nothing changes and problems appear.

Just adding another voice to the throng here.  Having to restart my whole game because I forgot to switch to my headset beforehand is huge pain.
