If you need to switch channels while in game, press the Overlay Plugin hotkey combination to see which channel you are in and which one you move to when changing channels.
TeamSpeak 3 Overlay Troubleshooting
Follow the above steps to see if this is required for your installation.
Step 1: Run TeamSpeak 3 as an administrator. If this does not resolve the issue, then run the program normally.
Step 2: Go to http://ts3overlay.r-dev.de/ and download one of the latest plugins.
Step 3: Click Settings -> Plugins -> TeamSpeak 3 Overlay Plugin -> Settings -> Enforce loading -> OK -> Close
If you are running the program normally, and the overlay still does not appear in game, try running TeamSpeak 3 as an administrator.
If none of the above steps work, then it is recommended to do a fresh installation, which includes removing your configuration. Prior to doing a fresh installation, make sure you back up your identity(ies).
Your identity contains any permission(s) that have been assigned to you on the server.
How to Backup Your Identity(ies)
Settings -> Identities -> select the individual identity(ies) -> Export and save the file.
How to Restore Your Identity(ies)
Settings -> Identities -> Import -> select your identity(ies) and import them.
