Hi there, I have an Audigy 2 Platinum eX. I've recently started playing Counterstrike (a Half Life Mod), I use a piece of software called 'Ventrilo' to talk to friends via my mic during gameplay.
The problem is, every time I open Counterstrike, the recording source in my 'surround mixer' gets changed to 'wave/mp3' from 'line /mic'. This means that when I talk on ventrilo, whatever I am listening to (noises from gameplay) are broadcast to the other users on ventrilo.
The only way I can stop this, is to alt+tab out of counterstrike, and change the recording source back to line /mic.
There are no settings inside counterstrike to define the input source (as they have an integrated voice comms) and I can't find any options to disable or change the source it picks.
My friend has my old Sound Blaster Li've! Platinum, and he doesn't have this problem.
Is there any way to maybe disable applications from changing the recording source? Or any other solutions?
Sorry for writing so much, and thanks for your help!
