Hey,

I know there's a guide for Mumble overlay but I wasn't able to comment (click on the link and nothing happened sort of thing).

Anyway....

When I first got mumble I couldn't get the overlay to work, followed the guide and no luck.
Tried to remove all the items in the balcklist, found in mumble overlay settings area, no joy.
Tried to add 'planetside2.exe' to the whitelist (on it's own) and it just made the game crash.

I finally found 2 tips that made it work:
1. Install the latest mumble snapshot from mumble.sourceforge.net website, remember to unistall the stable version first.
2. Add 'planetside2.exe' in the whitelist area of mumble overlay settings (you'll of course have to put the full file pathway or whatever it's called)

Hope it helps!

I managed to keep the overlay working by simply sticking to an older beta release of 1.2.4

The only bad thing is that it will prompt you every time you open Mumble asking if you want to upgrade.
