[HOW TO] Discord fixes and botches

Post by Kentone » Mon Nov 20, 2017 7:06 pm

I started this thread for only one problem I had, but appears that discord shows some more issues, so I decided to start documenting here what's broken and how to fix it :D

For now we have:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  • FIX FOR "OVERLAY NOT SHOWING" - Insurgency only
  • FIX FOR THE "MEMBER NAMES NOT SHOWING" - Insurgency only
  • FIX FOR "DIGITAL NOISE" - General Fix
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you find a new issue that is not here, put it on a comment so we can investigate it (^_^)

FIX FOR "OVERLAY NOT SHOWING" - Insurgency only
I asked some people if they can see the discord overlay, and seems like some can't.
So the problem is BattleEye blocking the load of the discord overlay plugin into Insurgency.
This is the way you have to launch Insurgency to play with Discord support:

Go to steam and press the right button of the mouse above insurgency, select "Properties":

Go to the local files tab, and press view local files:
Image

Make a shortcut on the desktop for the executable called Insurgency.exe, NOT Insurgency_BE.exe (BE is BattleEye):
Image
And rename it to something like "Insurgency no BattleEye" or "Insurgency with Discord" (The shortcut pls, not the exe XD)

Launch the game from that new shortcut you created to play on EBS server and use the Discord overlay, remember to configure the overlay first on Discord.
If you want to play on BattleEye protected server, just launch the game from steam, and not from your hand created shortcut :D

FIX FOR THE "MEMBER NAMES NOT SHOWING" - Insurgency only
I found out another issue that maybe you will face, quite annoying, and its that discord sometimes only shows discord icon on overlay, not the member names, even if you enable "Always show names".
OK! Alt-tab the game, go to discord and press the settings button:
Image

Then go to overlay and disable then enable:
Image

OR

Go to keybinding, and set a key to "Enable/disable overlay", I have the minus key set. This way you don't have to alt-tab to fix the contact list :)
Image

FIX FOR "DIGITAL NOISE" - General Fix

This one was found and fixed by Stubj

Just go to Settings/Voice and video/Quality of service and put the underneath option on "Enable":
Image

And sorry about the spanish screenshots, thats what I have XD

I hope it helps, if you have any issue, feel free to ask me for help :)
