Very cool. Had my first go at in-game fleet voice chat today, and everyone had it up and running well within a few minutes (Noticed that everyone had to bring up their microphone level considerably to be audible, might want to change the default?). I do notice some choppiness and stuttering from some players, but overall it's working quite well so far. Team chat is also working great.
I hope the voice system can be deactivated by default, because it would be very anoying if I have to deactivate the voice chat everytime I start the game.
I am able to play the game, but nothing more even playing is just possible. The additional voice traffic will kill the connection for sure.
I am not against voice systems, but I can't use them so it is important for me to disable them. I have tried teamspeaker in the background and the result was devastating for the game play.
I have disabled the voice system, nevertheless it seems, that there is noch chance to play the new game. With or without chat. Suddenly it seems to need so much bandwidth, that this game died for me.
I just have 768 / 128 kBit bandwidth and STO was fantastic as I could play this game with only minor problems due to the bandwidth problem. Now this time seems to be gone.
I really like STO. Voice systems never where interesting for me, especially with my connection, but that way it is now playing is impossible.
Is there still traffic from the voice system even when it is turned off? If yes, is there any way to totally shut it down?
