    Voice chat, is it worth it?

    New to UT2004 but saw the option of voice chat. I don't have a mic etc. Got soundblaster card but is it worth it. IE: Do many players use this and is it any good?
    Just need a few technical tips, help, if anyone has some advice would be appreciated.

    (on cain's, some use tactics via vOIP)

      Lots of people use it, yes.
      However, lots of people are also morons about it.

      I think you can live without it.

        @ NiTrOcALyPsE,:up:
        I very rarely use it on a public server because of the above but when I am with clan buddys we use it all the time, when used properly for tactics etc it is great.

            Can't stand it. It does nothing that teamsay doesn't do.

            It's just abused by morons who love the sound on their own voice ranting racists comments or singing stupid songs

            I switched it off within a week.

              Much like what my experience has been with it too. It's basically a PITA to hear a couple of numbskulls going on about ***** in the middle of a game that has nothing to do with the game. :down: :down: :down: I leave it off.

              However, in a clan match it might be useful.

                i use it simply cause i can type and talk at the same time so rather than having to stand still i can talk :up:

                however, my friend set me up with a VOICE to TExt program and somehow made it work for unreal (don't ask me, hes more than a wizz kid), so i can talk, but it comes up with text (which (sum) people pay attention to )

                  UT2K4 already has V-to-T built in, doesn't it?

                    It has the support, but it needs a seperate downloaded program for Windows... :bulb:

                    Once you install and set that program up, you can V-to-T just as much as you want to in 2K4!

                      You also have the morons who just turn on music and leave that playing in the backgroung acting like Aholes. It just gets everyone mad and ruins the game. When playing with friends voice is cool but general servers kind of useless.

                        I think the Windows version does and I know the Mac version does not. Mac players can do VoIP and text to speech but that is it. Something about with the way voice to text was done on PCs made it impossible to port, AFAIK. I have no idea about the Linux version.

                        Anyway, I like using VoIP with clan mates in ONS.

                          I thought so except for the Mac part, I didn't know about the porting issue.

                          But yeah, give people a poteniially cool option and leave to a few assclowns to screw it up.

                              If you're just going to play in random public servers casually, there's no reason to get a microphone.


                              If you become a regular at a certain server, it might be handy to chat w/ your other ingame friends as you play.


                              If you plan on clanning, it's a necessity.


                              If you're going to be a nuisance in ONS demo servers, it's a necessity too. You might want to go falsetto as well.
