If you don't like people using voice chat, just turn the sound down.

Doesn't work so well if you're using WinAmp and/or TeamSpeak at the same time though. And a party without music is rather dull.

Once again, turning NPC voice all the way to the left, should turn off the voices.

Why do people hate voice chat so much? :(

Well, it's just MHO, but lemme guess...

- VU all over the map.
- EQ all over the rest of the map.
- Clipping up ye kazoo... and Beyond.
- Compression tighter than... no, I don't wanna go there...
- Mix From fiery abyss Dating Service: "Lo-fi party line perspective seeks sweet pocket in a professionally polished mix of ambience, spot SFX and MX tracks. Object: unholy matrimony."
- Breathers.
- Up-close & personal ear-adventure with adenoids.
- 3 words out of 4 are “uhhm...”

For starters.

:P

Hmm maybe I have a problem, but I have Voice Chat enabled but I haven't heard a single Voice since I started. :shock:

Has it been turn off even if you have it enabled?

Just some food for thought for all you Voice Chat dislikers...

There are some people in the community that can't type very well because of different illnesses or (in my case) the onset of arthritis. Voice chat enables people to communicate with others when typing just won't work for them. Sometimes my hands, shoulders and elbows hurt so bad that I have trouble typing so just being able to press the tab key to talk to people is a treat.

So, before you completely shoot the whole voice chat thing down, think of the people it helps too.

I know that when something bothers you so badly that it's not easy to look at both sides of the coin. However, just take a minute to think of all of the different folks we have in the cavern and what their needs are as well.

8) Here's my workaround, albeit temporary. It is a known bug (ticketed and replied to), and I don't know if it's just for my sound card (Audigy 2ZS), but if I have the Audio Mode slider in Audio Settings, set all the way to the right, where it states the name of my sound card, I hear everything (really nicely I might add) except voice chat! Occasionaly when someone's mutely gesturing wildly in front of me, and I need to listen, I just put the slider one position to the left where it says Generic Hardware, and presto voice chat listen is enabled...! (I have EAX enabled, and my mic works in either setting, so all-in-all a rather nice feature (err, bug I mean) :twisted: .

Too bad they'll probably fix it :roll: (with all due respect Sh'aeri, 'cause I understand what you're saying) :lol: .

I don't want to shoot the voice chat thing down, but I'm also not very happy with it. Because I'm severely hearing impaired, it's nearly impossibly for my to understand what's being said in voice chat. The quality of the audio stream is just too poor for me.

You know what...this is why I LOVE our community. We're darn good folks over here.

Now if we could only solve all of our problems like that, whew, wouldn't that be nice. :D
