Microphone not working
New, NormalPublic


To preface this. Using 32-bit Arma 3. My Microphone works and I'm able to use it normally. I can see in Windows Privacy & Security that my Microphone is being accessed by Arma 3.
This isn't the case when I use 64-Bit Arma 3. I can see a Windows Host Process using my Microphone. But trying to use it in Arma 3. Nothing happens. I test it on different servers that have Voice Comms enabled, in the correct channels to do so but nothing happens. Additionally the Character doesn't make any mouth movements like what is usually supposed to occur.

I've use USB Headsets. And a 3.5mm headset. Both change nothing.
Said audio devices work with Steam and Teamspeak and everywhere else I've tried.


Operating System
Windows 11 x64
Operating System Version
Steps To Reproduce

I found the simplest way to see whether or not my Microphone works is to boot up Arma 3, head to the audio options and try to auto adjust the microphone sensitivity. On 32-Bit It works fine. On 64-Bit the interface will just close instantly.

Additional Information

The output audio works fine.
