It's easy enough to set up Planetside 2 to record gameplay for Twitch streaming (since it's built-in), but I want it to record my voice commentary from my headset microphone as well. It doesn't seem to do this by default, though. Is there a way to do this?

    Have you tried using a separate program? A quick search came up with a few things, but I'm not a streamer so I wouldn't know if they're useful or not. Probably not... – peper757 Jan 1 '14 at 9:22
  • So is it already streaming you commentary and you just want to record it locally for later, or are you having trouble streaming your voice? – MBraedley Jan 1 '14 at 15:25
  • @MBraedley It's not already streaming commentary; I want it to but I don't know how to get it to record my voice for commentary through the game. I haven't tried another program yet, and I assume that will work, but I was hoping it was supported natively through the game's Twitch streaming support. – vargonian Jan 1 '14 at 22:12
  • I thought that was the case. Is there a built in voice chat system? I'm thinking the controls for streaming would be in a similar place. – MBraedley Jan 2 '14 at 2:03

You will need to employ a program that can create a virtual audio card that mixes in both devices (outputs) into one which can then be streamed out.

The program I would recommend is Virtual Audio Cable (VAC). Setting it up may take a bit of reading, but this is what you need to do to get it up and running. I'm certain there are many guides for it!

Good Luck!
