    team communication in ut3

    when I press "t" for team speak, normally nobody is answering me.


    are there better ways to speak, like with a headset? If yes, how does it work? I cant configure it in ut3, dont see where.


    I have ut3 two times: 1x from DVD, 1xfrom Steam (registered my DVD in Steam too, thats why).


    Communication-free multiplayer games dont feel much different like bot-games against the computer. So help to solve this problem is much appricated

      "Y"=Team chat (in text)
      "T"= Chat (in text)
      "B"=Activate Voice comms.

      One CD key=One copy of UT.

        does this mean i can use a 1 same cd-key and put it on 2 differnet computers and make one have a different account??? or does it not work like that, and it will say that the key is in use already.

          Sure you can use it for 2 different computers but you will only be able to play online on one of them at a time.

          The only way you will be able to speak with someone else is if they also have a mic. The in-game voice chat isn't very good. It's better to use either Ventrilo or Team Speak, which Ventrilo is better than Team Speak, IMO.

            Hmmmm.... okay, all again for a dummy:

            I will buy a headset.
            What are now the next steps to communicate the best/most usual way , to reach as many player as possible?

            Just pressing the button "b" and release it if I stopp speaking? That works? And this is called the in-game-voice-chat, right?

            and how does it work with team-speak or ventrillo? with which one I reach most players?

                So, all I have to do is to plug in a headset into my soundblaster and every time I want to speak I press the B-button, or just one time, and its open all the game session?

                Really?

                I mean, till now, I never heared somebody something say to me or to others, but well, I also never pressed the B-button.......


                Before I buy an expensive head-set I want to be sure about that

                I wouldn't say its a copy. I just registrated ut3 also in steam on the same computer, and deleted then the dvd-version.

                  While you hold B down, you are transmitting voice. Once you let it go, voice ends.

                  However, most people don't use voice in UT3. For many people, you will sound like your voice is being transmitted over AM radio, and then played from a radio at the bottom of a well. While they're wearing ear plugs. Don't waste money on a headset just for UT3. Just use team chat (Y by default) and learn to type as quickly as possible.

                    people don't use in game talk because it's really crappy. when somebody tries to talk it's usually very loud, annoying and cannot hear what the player is saying anyway. there is a way to disable other players mics somewhere in options (if I remember correctly) and lots of people disable it. therefore your mic might be working and sending data and all but people might not hear you because they disabled this feature in their game.
                    it's really a shame this doesn't work in game. there is not many players aware of ventrillo and other similar software... only in professional tournaments.
                    don't bother with mic in UT3. use chat feature instead. text to speech helps too ;-)

                          yes, its a pity then, that it doesnt work better.
                          I really miss this function, since a bit more strategic arrangement and team spirit in a multiplayer match would be great.

                          about this "ventrillo":
                          is the opposing team also hearing my voice, or just my team?
                          is quite important

                            if they are in the same vent server, on the same channel.


                            i wonder if i could have taken any longer to respond to this thread...

                              It's not just that, it's because a lot of people become really annoying on voice, I'll never use any type of in game voice for that reason. If you need to speak to me, join vent or ts.
