Listen server and voice error
(excuse my poor english ... my first language if french ...)
I know that listen server dont offer me voice , i see that in others post...
But what is the **** .... when i start dedicated server ... i dont want to play and voice chat .... but is working
but when i play a listen server ... i play the game and i want to hear voice ... but is not working ...
My question is : This is a bug ... atari make this imposible?
if atari make that ? for why ? ... he have a reason ?
I want to talk with my user in my server ... when i am in the listen server ... i pay for this ...
I send many's emails to technical services ... no response .... i dont know why they name this technical SERVICES ... if them do not repond
For why pay for a game is no technical repond ...
I'm a network Administrator ... i wanto technical explication PLEASE
... for now i take my wife computer to make dedicated server ...
but my ping is not good same as in listen server .... grrrrrrrrr
I have the same problem exactly
VoIP means Voice Over IP. As far as I know its the same technology used to phone over the Internet. Maybe ATARI/EPIC doesn't want to harm Telephone corps because one minute of an Internet connection is much cheaper then regular phone calls ??? I don't know whats the reason. But...
My experiences are:
1- a listen server is much slower than an instant action game
2- a dedicated server can be caught by a UT2004 client running on the same machine
3- running a client and a dedicated server on the same machine is as fast as a listen server
conclusion: why don't you run a dedicated server and client connected to the server on the same PC.
Btw, this solution works fine for me and my neighbor
i have tried this but is slow
when i have 12 or more people
not in listen
What is a listen server anyway? How do you use it?
There are two ways to host a network game on your own server. On one hand you can start the server in listen mode, that way a client is automaticly connected to the hosted server (the client listens), and you can play on your server.
On the other hand you can run the server in dedicated mode, that closes UT2004 and starts UT2004 engine via 'UCC'. If you want to play on your hosted server, you have to start another UT2004 then 'join game' and you have to search for your ded. server in the network browser. Then you can connect to your server and play on it.
Server rules are set in 'host gam' > 'server rules' menu. To start the server you'll find the two different buttons (listen/dedicated) below.
I know all of this ...
but its slow ... and all on the same machine ... is very long to load a map ... and the ping is not goog...
in listen server all ping is below 50ms and dedicated and i start another game for me to play .... the ping is 100ms and more
But i want listen server to work with voice .... all my people ear all people ... but me, i dont hear ... i need to open teamspeak with my friends ... but others is not my friend and i dont hear them`
Listen server hosts will not have any voice chat functionality - this is by design.
