Exclamation VOICE CHAT ENABLED in Assault!
Reply With Quote


Y'know now that you have your Assault server going again, perhaps it might be a good idea to inform people that voice chat is enabled.

In the years past it seemed that only Onslaught had voice, while Assault was stuck with text chat.

So in a way the new Assault server is perhaps even better than before, even if it's still just getting back into popularity.

Maybe this fact should be advertised in-game as part of the regular server info messages sent to players. "Voice chat is enabled on this server!"


Oh, and maybe a forum post about it would be good.

I don't know, maybe something in ALL CAPS, proclaiming that voice chat is enabled or something..

I find that voice chat is almost always annoying, and almost never useful. For that reason, I have it turned off.

Thanks, nice way to rain on my parade, while I'm trying to stir some positive PR for the gametype.

Voice can be either useful or annoying, depends on who you play with
If it's )o( members and many of the regulars, they'll actually try and coordinate thru voice
If it's some random schmuck, then you usually hear all kinds of useless junk. But that's where "Ignore Voice" comes in

Voice is ok most of the time. Until you have some jerkoff who thinks everyone should listen to the music he's listening to... That's one of my biggest peeves with having voice on a server..

Even the regulars get chatty. I don't mind it in text chat, because it's easier to ignore. Somehow I can't get the volume all the way off on voice chat (unchecking "enable" doesn't work either).

If you just shut off your computer, that will," get the volume all the way off on voice chat".

Those are the voices in your head. I hear lorazepam in large doses is good for dealing with that.



Remember people, NO CHAT in Assault. NO FRIENDLY BANTER! It annoys Steve! Assault is SERIOUS BUSINESS.

Maybe this has something to do with why it is dead as a doornail.

Oh puh-leez. The reason it's dead is because you're all waiting for someone else to be on the server first to provide you with entertainment.

I place the blame solidly on you, Javik. You're not pulling your weight.

Get on that server. I need entertainment.

Okay, Coyote, I'll do it but only if I can sing along to Show Tunes on the public voice channel. I hear Steve loves those.

Hello Dolly!
Well, Hello Dolly!
It's so nice to have you back where you belong
You're looking swell, Dolly,
We can tell, Dolly,
You're still glowin', you're still crowin'
You're still goin' strong.
We feel the room swayin'
For the band's playin'
One of your old fav'rite songs from 'way back when

I'm not saying that you can't chat. I just wish I could get it to actually stay off. I love friendly text chat, but when it gets annoying I tend to ignore it. You can't do that with voice chat.
