I having some trouble with my headset/mic. Uses audio jacks btw, when i play any game the in-game chat doesn't work. I cant hear them and they cant hear me. Then when I use discord or Skype everything works just fine. I cant figure out what going on. Please help.

You can try these things:
Run the Windows Device troubleshooter in control panel
Run sfc/scannow
Check the integrity of cache files through each gaming platform
Eventually re-installing a game should fix the issue

Check your drivers. Try to clean and re-install your audio drivers. Download them from your motherboard's site and select the proper OS.

That may not solve your issue but you can try. Since it works with some programs but not in games, it indicates a driver issue. Was it always like that? Did you change anything or had an OS update? Post your specs and we may find the root cause
