Anyone with the retail version,

Does Lockdown support voice communication on multiplayer? I know the demo didn't have it, just wondering if the full version supported it.

Thanks

Actually it does. I haven't been able to play multiplayer properly to confirm it, however there is a button for "Push to talk", and a headset (mic) icon shows up.

It seems to work perfectly fine when I start a server, I just haven't had anyone to be able to test it with.

Actually, it doesn't. Thats not VOIP, that is so you can tell your "AI" teammates specific commands.

From the readme:

2.2 Voice Commands

-The following is a list of valid voice commands you can use with a headset mic to issue orders to your AI teammates in Single player games:

Open Frag And Clear
Open Flash And Clear
Open And Clear
Open And Hold
Breach And Clear
Breach And Hold
Shotgun Frag And Clear
Shotgun Flash And Clear
Shotgun And Clear
Shotgun And Hold
Hammer Frag And Clear
Hammer Flash And Clear
Hammer And Clear
Hammer And Hold
Close
Climb
Operate
Disarm
Disable
Secure
Hack
Scout
Hold
Follow
Assault
Recon
Go Go Go
Move To
Suppress

Are you serious? Wow, thanks man.

That's kinda stupid though! I mean why wouldn't they implement a VoIP system?? We've beena sking for it for a while! Splinter Cell has it!

My guess is that it'd eat too much bandwidth. I haven't been in or hosted a server with 8 people tops, for more than an hour.
The game has enough networking problems at the moment.

Try a server called "Dedicated - PsB", it's running on it's own right now in a co-location, shouldn't be too bad.

UBI name: dns_server

no need for VOIP... most players I have seen on at one time is about 20-25... this game is dead as a doornail.
