    I did have a similar problem, worked in everything perfectly, recording, vent, voip.
    But in steam it made terrible static and never worked, and it broke, a year later i get this new mic and it works fine.

    Can't it be the bitrate that your microphone is picking up at? I've had trouble with some people in-game completely killing the sound in Garrysmod because of (I don't know what) but I'd be willing to bet it's bitrate.

    Not too sure about all that bitrate stuff?

    First time I ever tested HLDJ it was on a very popular GMod build server.
    It worked.

    There's a command in gmod servers where you may disable HLDJ and HLSS.

    AND

    It's defaulted to ON.

    Anything that modifies any values to do with .dll files will get you VAC Banned.

    All HLDJ does is create a .wav file inside your 2nd garrysmod folder then uses the variable voice_inputfromfile which will act like your microphone when you press your voice key but actually just play from the audio file.

    Most servers haven't modified the command meaning you can't use it there, you may hear your own music but others won't hear a thing.

    Not at all, it isn't a cheat nor a hack and doesn't edit any cvars, I think the only cvar it uses is "voiceinputfile" or something

    Some server's don't allow hldj, and or mics, try using it on a few servers.

    Also in console type

    Bind "x" "+voice_record"

    Also type voice_loopback 1 in console, see if you can hear yourself.

    He didn't block it, there's a console command in rcon that allows people to use it, I think is Sv_allow_wav_upload 1 or something, I forgot. You also shouldn't say things you don't 100% know, but don't worry I would expect a d3vine player to say something so mindless.

    Well, my mic works with Trouble in Terrorist Town and all RP's but not Jailbreak and Sandbox. So it cant be my mic. This is defiantly something to do with the System.

    Why use HLDJ? I just hook up my phone using a patch cord for soundboards.
