I have yet to play on a server where anyone uses the voice communications. I try to hit the buttons and talk into my mic but no one ever responds. Do people use it alot? Maybe I dont have it turned on. Could some one tell me if people use it and if so how I can turn it on!!??

I think it's just not used by many people. It seems to work OK for me. Enable it by selecting Options from the main menu. Than select Audio. You'll see a section for VOIP, there. There is a button to test your microphone on that page.

VoIP has awful quality, compared to TS or even Ventrillio. I have it enabled, so that i can hear orders/intel from the commander in case i need to, but i rarely use it myself. If someone tries to speak to me, it goes like this: "phss.. hppsppsps....tsk tsk.... is my mic workings? ts.. ts..kphph.. pphhhs". In this cases i just answer, yes it's working, and then just ignore that person (if i ignore him long enough, he won't speak again, so i won't have to listen to his misconfigured $2 mic. Furthermore, a lot of people just have VoIP disabled, cause it eats up bandwidth, but is of exteremely poor quality

As long as people have their mic configured correcty, I have found the voice quality to be just fine. Seems almost as good as TS to me.

I guess you run TS on 5.6k codec .... The quality of VoIP got nothing to do with mic configuration (for this aspect). I have clanmates on TS who sound just fine, like talking on the phone or in person, and when those same clanmates try VoIP (with the same mic, same settings, etc), the VoIP quality if far inferior

Yes, I believe you are pretty much correct. I just looked and I think my TS is set on CELP 5.1k codec.

It definatley depends on the quality of the persons mic. I mean one of my clanmates on TS sounds like he's talking with his mic half way up his arse or something, but the rest I can understand perfectly. The same with BF2's in game VoIP, it depends quite heavily on the mic. Ventrillo's sound quality is second to none though. Ventrillo 4tw! People generally don't use VoIP on public servers, and I don't know why, they must be shy with their little 14 year old sqeaky voices or something winkx.gif (j/k). I notice that if I start using my mic then other people will too, it takes that first person to break the ice. Even then only the few people willing to co-operate as a team use their mics, most people are happy to rambo around without a mic or squad. Most people just never respond when you talk to them though. I remember asking a guy something not using VoIP, typing it and not getting any response at all, he just completley ignored me. It's like playing with rambo bots or something sometimes.
