Mumble - Unable to activate overlay effect

Ask a question


I am under Window7 and for a while I have no overlay effects under Mumble 1.2.3. It only works under Admin mode.


1) In Mumble go to Configuration > Overlay (Check "Advanced")

2) Go to "Exceptions for the Overlay" > Blacklist > Remove two files that start with "hl" (often at the end of the list)

3) Go to: Settings > Plugins > Reload plugins

4) Reboot your Mumble

Thanks to DAxtER for this tip.
