I can't record both game and microphone uadio at the same time.

I had this problem when i started out with dxtory, i managed to solve it since it was just a set-up error i had made but now i cant fix it. I re-installed windows on my computer a while ago, got a new headset, and i wiped the entire computer so evrything is new.

The problem i am having is that only the first audio stream is being recorded. Microphone is recorded if i put it on stream one, but not game audio, and vice versa.

I am using the stabdard PCM audio codec

My post from a different thread, but it technically applies to you too:

It's possible that you are misunderstanding how video players and audio tracks work. Video player can only play "1" audio track at the time, you can switch between them but can't play all at the same time.

You can extract all the audio tracks from the video by right-clicking on the Dxtory video - select Extract Audio Streams - and then combine all those streams in a video editor.

Yes i know this, i have used DxTory before and i have made videos/LP's on YouTube. When re-watching the footage there are only sound from the first audio channel, either the microphone or the game audio. When i extract the separate tracks there is also only something recorded on the first channel, one of them is me talking jibborish and the other one is compleate scilence. This was one of the first things i tested.

DxTory litterally isn't recording the audio on the second channel.

Your audio tracks are:

[Audio0] - Device: Mikrofon (3- Logitech G930 Headset)
[Audio1] - Device: Högtalare (3- Logitech G930 Headset)

I have doubts your second audio track has a valid device selected. You should try changing it other audio devices, you usually will get a number of invalid devices which won't record what you intent to. For example in my own computer setup case it's:
