Mic not working steam deep rock galatic [repost in right section]

Post by minty_melon »

I'm trying to get my steelseries 1 headset mic / microphone to work for the game Deep Rock Galactic that I play on Steam. The audio output goes to the headset and the mic definitely works in Steam and on my computer (I can talk on Steam chat and I can record my voice on audacity). However, I can't talk in the game. Other users think that the game searches for 'default input device' and while Linux provides this, it isn't used properly. For those that don't know, the game runs through Proton which is a Steam tool that uses software such as Wine and DXVK. Does this great forum have any ideas on how to get the game to properly recognize my headset has a mic?

Well darn. The output looks almost perfect except for this:

Code: Select all

	ports:
		analog-input-mic: Microphone (priority 8700, latency offset 0 usec, available: unknown)
I'm suspecting something about the game itself is the issue, but I have zero experience with this sort of thing.

The only thing I can suggest is to delete the files in /home/YourUserName/.config/pulse then run pulseaudio -k in the terminal. Relaunch the game and see if it works. With some luck, it was just a messed up config file causing this, but I'm doubting that.

EDIT: And one other thing. Is the mono-fallback the same when the mic is working elsewhere:
