    Dunno, maybe I did something wrong or had a conflict, I uninstalled it months ago.

      I havent, but noticed your sig, Laser Sqad Rox, had it on my Speccy - although Rebelstar Raiders was the best ! Saw LSN a while back but got put off by subscription based gaming .

        The current system lets you play 50 turns for free. That'll be enough to get you hooked.

        A great game!

          Because of the need to press buttons and chat - doesn't seem like much but it's annoying. There is a small delay with in-game now matter how fast your connection. Skype for me is instantaneous.

            When i used it at home on my pc, it didnt lag me and it didnt crash ut1 nor ut2k4.

            the quality is SO much better than ts and ventrillo (when its a 1on1 conversations, for clantalks its not suited)
            not true, it all depends on the codec used... But because both programs are multiple user oriented they sacrifice some quality for lesser use of bandwith by default... I'm sure there's codecs you can use that'll be as good as skype but with multiple users in a channel it might start to get laggy

              I've been googling the web, read about using Skype with video games.
              It's a shame to see we have the same problems in 2010 as in 2005.
              That's actually not totally true... During my search I came across a cool free application that allows me to use Skype while I play games. Overwolf, that's the name of the application, creates an overlay above the game and I can see Skype even while I'm playing. No need for that Alt+Tab bulli**** anymore!

              If you are still having problems with Skype (and got to this forum post using Google ) you should really check it out - Overwolf - Use Skype In Game.

                  You could also use xfire instead. Or both. Or both + MSN, like I do.

                    I use my phone If I play with a friend I just call him. My PC + MSN + UT2004 + online = BAAAD!
                    I close everything which is not needed when I play online.

                      Xfire is very buggy and insecure, thats why I only still have it just to lead my clan and keep in touch with some friends, i'd prefer msn or skype, so thanks for this solution.

                        Buggy? Insecure? First time I've heard that, and never experienced anything like it.
