yo, so the subject here is…VOICE CHAT.
alright so I know Steam works well enough for most people.
But for a lot of others they just can’t be bothered to shift+tab to answer calls, or figure out how to set up/join groups and all that jazz.
I have a suggestion for those of you who own your own server, or even a large group of friends who want a free alternative to ventrilo/teamspeak/mumble/gamevox/etc etc
It is old school, and I haven’t used it since I played wolfteam like 5/6 years ago but http://getgsc.com/ lets you set up your own free 200 person voice server.
You have to sign up for an account, but big deal there. Way back when, it did run a little resource heavy. But with today’s computers I would imagine that its not so bad anymore. (I had a less than mid tier gaming pc back then and it ran fine/no loss in pc performance)
Why do I randomly suggest this?
Well, because I had also been looking for a new voice solution.
I know many others are as well and . . . lol. . well because I am kind of tired of all those dang russians/koreans/brazillians flooding the US server chat with text we can’t understand/figure out. lol
(yes yes let the flames of racism/nationalism/ or w/e the heck you want to toss at me begin) lol
But, picking on that aside, it would also be a great help to a group of friends on any server to use an external VOIP so they aren’t “heard” in the game, at their secret base, in some rocks, next to a friggen town, LOL
I am also interested in hearing other suggestions for free voice chat programs meant for gaming/groups (other than skype and stuff lol)
