Hew created issue #161 (closed) on 2010-08-31T01:25:22Z:
Integrating voice chat such as Mumble into Xonotic would add greatly to the social aspect of the game.
- All players, new and old, talking as soon as you join the server.
- No need for the download, install, configure hurdle. Appropriate Xonotic defaults.
- Team chat and positional audio.
To deal with bandwidth concerns, low bitrate Speex can be used, and voice could even be disabled by default with silent visual notifications that players are chatting.
This is a request for integration of a voice client. Server side can be handled by cvars to point to an existing voice server.
