Go buy a mic. They are cheap and definately enhance the playing experience. Plus you get to meet people. If you fly with someone a lot using pair tactics and working on good comunication adds a whole new level to the game. Warclouds has a public teamspeak server and although I have hung out a lot there seems I the only one who uses it http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

I refuse to play any multiplayer game without using voice coms. Teamspeak works well and adds so much more to the game, where IL2 FB or a fps game like Ghost Recon.

The timing of this (and the other) post is perfect.

I used TS for the first time (in FB) tonight.

Totally different game. I highly recomend it. Even if you think you are a sucky pilot, find some people to talk to on TS. You'll find that you aren't that bad.

I guess that just proves the old Wild-West gunslinger cliche "There's always someone better/faster, but there's always someone slower too...the trick is knowing which one you're facing right now"

Voice comms rock. I have Teamspeak2 and Ventrilo. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Voice comms really do great things for any game. You form tighter bonds with your team mates, you can cooperate better, you make new friends, you're exposed to new cultures.... I really strongly recommend you try it http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif.

OK OK
I'll get voice comms....
Uh, so what do I do? Go to radio shack and get a headset with mic and headphone.
This may be a dumb question but, where do you plug the (I'm assuming) TWO jacks in the back. IE. Don't you lose the one for your speakers?

IMHO Voice comms bring any game to a new level. Its great.

Nick, the thing about voice comms is dont use them with speakers. the other people on the voice comms will appreciate it. If you laready have headphones you can buy a mic for as little as $10-15. If you need a full headset there are a few options. You can find quality ones for ~$30. They will either be USB, and will jsut use one USB port, or they will plug into your soundcard. You just one jack into the mic port the other into the port you are currently using for speakers. You can get a splitter if you want your spekers and headset plugged in at the same time.

I second that.... and if you are going to get a mike... spend the extra $$ if you can and get a USB headset. They are great... comms coming through the headset everything else through the speakers..... it's hard to do without USB. On mosat analog sets you get everything or nothing threough the headsets. USB allows for the seperation. Windows and subsequently most comm programs (Ventrillo & TS at least) see the headset as a seperate sound source so you can program them to just recieve comms... while the roar of your engine and the cannonfire are coming through your speakers. All you will get on your speakers comm wise is the announcement that the comm program makes when someone leaves or joins a channel. Now all I need is a TIR2 and Ill be set till BoB.

Wont the other people on TS hear the engine, gunfire and other noises though TS when playing those throught speakers? I know it had noise cancelling, but that only works so well...

Excellent - thanks for all the tips - USB headset - didn't know there was such a thing. With the TrackIR that I just got my USB ports are gonna fill up fast !

But now you guys are gonna hear me talk about how nice the weather is in Hawaii and annoying things like that http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Does anyone know if it is possible to have the talk button for TeamSpeak mapped to a joystick button? I currently have the Ctrl key on my keyboard assigned but would find it a lot more convenient to have it on my stick. My team mates usually want to talk at an awkward moment like in the middle of take off or when I have 2 zeros on my tail.

Yes if u have configured to Ctrl on keyboard, just set one of your joystick buttons to act as Ctrl in conrols IN FB.

u dont need to use a button, just adjust the "voice activated" sensativity till it only picks up your voice and nothing else.

S!

Thanks JG6_Oddball. I'll give that a try.

Naah, don't do voice activated. Map it. You will find that the occasional exclamation (or muttering to yourself under your breath) might not be a wanted output to the world. I would suggest re-mapping your voice comm Push-To-Talk key to something like F12. Then, using whatever profiling software is available for your stick, set the appropriate button to use F12.

YMMV.

Is there anyway to configure the machine/ voice coms so that the game sounds come out the speakers and only players' voice comes through the headset muffs ?

I've also seen people mention that it can be done with two sound cards rather than one sound card and a USB headset, but it may be fussier to set up that way.

So Bear just what USB set di you purchse? Sounds interesting I'm just using a Labtec set from Walmart. I have certain tones I can't here very well. I'm mean i here it but cna't understand it. Deep male voices just mumble through my headset with all the other noise. I've spent to much time around Air tools I guess. I have two frineds that I'm always makeing them repeat theirselves.
