So I'm fed up with the voice comms in TFC. I basically can't hear some players at all ( Nug and Spoti for example ) while others come through loud and clear .

Nug and Spoti have you turned down your voice input ingame ? Have you turned down your voice input in windows or on your microphone itself? Or just havent checked the settings ?

Is there anyone in our small community who can get to the bottom of this ?

Or alternatively are we all willing to use Mumble or Teamspeak for pugs ? When i use Teamspeak no-one ever says they can't hear me and i can always hear every member of the channel.

(While my eyesight isnt what it once was my hearing is still the same so this isn't an age thing.)

Jolly your in-game mic is the worst, I can hardly hear you and Spoti too.

Nug just mumbles... not sure if he talks like this to customers at the golf shop too?

I've tried to boost my voice input - it is a known problem for the headset i bought. They should come with a warning - don't work very well with Windows 10.

I found this which some people might like but it doesnt seem to help this problem much

// Volume Control Script for Voice Receive

alias "voice_0" "voice_scale 0.0; voice_scale; alias voice_up voice_0.5; alias voice_dn voice_0"

bind "F10" "voice_up"

My headset ( Hyperx ) has some new firmware that allows me to access the windows slider now so hopefully my mic will improve.

I reckon something changed with the server a little while back when the OS got upgraded. I swear we had some special voice codec on there before but nobody seems to have any knowledge of it.

I agree that people are a lot less clear and also some players are a lot softer (nug for example).

I tried to push Discord a while back as I thought it was amazing to have such good voice quality.. who'd have thought it would be difficult for a bunch of stubborn gamers playing a 20 year old game to install some new software

I have turned voice_scale right up which allows me to hear shit but at the cost of terrible quality.

I made a post about this before, people just ignored it.
Half-life games now use steam chat and the steam voice codec. No server-side voice commands exist anymore (except for voice_enable). Use the microphone settings within steam to change transmit/receive volume.

I got forced to update it when shuffling things around, I left it on build 6027 (Apr 2013) until march 2017. Its now on build 6153 - Aug 29 2013

Glad it sorted out the issue for you!
