Our overlay is not technically game-specific but rendering-engine-specific. Thus it works for all games using supported rendering APIs.

For more information on the overlay, see the respective page about the Overlay.

Positional audio

Shows Audiowaves with Postional Audio in cyberspace

Please note that Mumble works with all games as a regular voice chat application. Those listed on this page are the games for which we are providing positional sound support, so that the voice of your teammates comes from their direction in game.

This feature can be enabled as follows:

  • 1.) Check "Advanced" in the Configure|Settings menu
  • 2.) Go to Plugins and check "Link to Game and Transmit Position"

If you deselected Enable positional audio during setup you have to re-enable it in the wizard.

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It is possible that some plugins are outdated in the current release; in that case please check the lists below.

If there is no update for the plugin, please report it here.

For additional info on what positional audio is and how it works in Mumble, see 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. For an overall look at retrieving positional data from a game, see here.

Supported games

The following table displays which games positional audio is available for, from which game version on (/for which version), for what platform and if extended support is available.

Games that provide native positional data via the Link plugin are marked in blue (that means they won’t get outdated). Outdated plugins are marked in yellow.
No means that the games don't use the extended positional audio features that were introduced with Mumble 1.2. Move the pointer over to see more info about the extended support for a specific plugin (if available).

Note: Windows plugins work on Wine!

Manual positional audio plugin

The configuration window of the manual positional audio plugin.

In addition to the mentioned plugins, there is a special plugin called manual placement plugin. It does not require a game, instead you can configure the plugin itself to set your own position from which other people in the same channel can hear you.

1 Set yourself on the canvas from where others should hear you. Make sure to choose a position other than 0, 0, 0 or you won't hear or send positionally.

2 Set your own orientation where you want your virtual avatar to look at on a 360° Scale.

3 Set your own azimuth (if you look up or down while you talk).

4 Set the context of your avatar. Only the people with the same context will hear you positionally.

5 Set the identity.

6 Link or unlink the plugin to transfer the settings to the server for processing.

7 Enable or disable the plugin.

8 Separate the plugin settings window. This is useful to change the positional audio settings without keeping the Mumble settings window opened.

9 Reset values for all settings.

10 Close the window.
