Please note that Mumble works with all games as a regular voice chat application.
The games below are the ones we've added positional sound support for, so that the voice of your teammates come from their direction in game. This feature can be enabled as follows:
- Check "Advanced" in the Configure|Settings menu
- Go to Plugins and check "Link to Game and Transmit Position"
- In Audio Output check "Positional Audio"
- If you use a headset or headphones then check "Headphones".
Just because your game says it is a different version from the plugin does not necessarily mean that the plugin will not work.
It is possible that some plugins are outdated in the current release, in that case please check the lists below. Please note that we won't update the plugins for Mumble 1.1.8
If your server is still running 1.1.8 we suggest that you install a Mumble snapshot from here. It contains a backwards compatible 1.1.x client that is able to use the new plugins. To update its plugins start Mumble 1.2.0, its auto-updater will download the latest plugins. The plugin download links are now deprecated. Please install 1.2.0 Beta and use the compatibility client if you wish to use the latest positional audio plugins.
If there is no update for the plugin, please create a bugreport here.
If you want to add support for a game and you are able to modify the source of this game you can use the Link plugin. If you cannot modify the source of the game you want to add this guide should help.

"Basic support" means that the games don't use the extended positional audio features of Mumble 1.2
The overlay is a feature that will overlay the nicknames of users in the channel or users talking over your currently running game. That means you will be able to see who's listening and talking ingame.
Mumble provides overlay support for Games using Direct3D 9/10 or OpenGL on Windows and OpenGL using games on Linux/OSX.
Games that are known to have major issues with the Mumble overlay:
- Combat Arms (overlay causes CA to crash after map changes; overlay will not display unless one joins a server and then leaves it)
- Supreme Commander (Multiplayer)
- Vanguard (crashes to desktop when overlay is enabled)
- Guitar Hero 3 (when using overlay, major latency and frame skipping under certain conditions)
Games that are known to have minor issues with the Mumble overlay:
- Any of the "Dawn of War" series (overlay will not display)
- Warcraft 3 (overlay will not display)
If you would like to disable the overlay for a certain game (because you do not want it in that particular game, or that game has issues with the overlay), and do not want to disable the overlay altogether, put a file named nooverlay (without any extensions) in the same folder as the game executable is located. This will tell Mumble that you do not want the overlay in this particular game.
