Is there any way that I can see who's talking on TeamSpeak from another computer? Or some kind of overlay similar to Steam that shows me who's talking on TS? Not only do I not recognize alot of people's voices, but I often don't even know if the voice is coming from in-game voip, or TS. I tried dual clienting TS, but each account is limited to one user. Anyone know any other ways to do what I'm trying to do?
Yeah, TSO is great. I use it in fact. And, it does not affect performance that much, if at all. Apparently the creator is not working on developing it anymore, but is working on a similar application for future release.
Try it out. Works great in my opinion.

Please note that we will not accept any further Bug Reports regarding TSO when run on Windows Vista. TSO is not compatible with Windows Vista and is thus not officially supported.
After my further testing of TSO #63 on Windows Vista, the following issues have been acknowledged:
1/ The installer states that TSO doesn't work with Windows Vista, but TSO will still install and work in XP compatibility mode - this is very much intentional - TSO really isn't fully compatible with Windows Vista - see the next points.
2/ TSO will only hook 32-Bit binaries, 64-Bit binaries aren't supported. So, anybody using 64-Bit binaries (e.g. those that have the FarCry 64-Bit patch) won't be able to use TSO. This cannot be rectified due to the development enviroment used to make TSO not supporting the production of 64-Bit code. 32-Bit games (i.e. 99% of games released before Vista) on the 64-Bit Version of Windows Vista should be OK however.
3/ Some DirectX 9 Games will not work. This is due to the internals of d3d9.dll being different on Vista for one of the functions TSO hooks. TSOs own sanity checks won't allow it to be fully hooked, meaning some games will work whilst others won't
4/ DirectDraw 7 Games won't work at all, as the one function that TSO hooks for it has a different header to the one TSO is expecting to hook, again due to an internal change.
Items 3 and 4 could probably be fixed, but given the 32-Bit limitation, even this is not sufficient for future-proofing TSO. Thus, it is unlikely that these will be fixed as a matter of urgency, because it would be mostly in vain.
My development efforts are already concentrated on replacing TSO altogether with something more "meaty", that does what TSO does plus much more. This project may not see the light of day for a long time (if ever). Stay tuned
So in theory, you should be able to run this in XP compatibility mode. In order to get TSO to work properly, you can't be running any other screenoverlay program at the same time (e.g. Xfire, FRAPS, Steam, etc).
Yep, indeed I am. I think that the problem lies with the fact that I'm using the EA download manager version of BF2142 rather than the disk version.
Also, I found that I sometimes had problems when I ran steam as an administrator with the other games in there so I had to revert Steam to using normal user access rights. It's not big deal, I'll see if I can get TSO downloaded and working.
I've been using Teamspeak and TSO for a good while now. Firstly on XP, and now I've got a new computer with Vista on it. I already saw mentions that TSO will not work on Vista. Well, it does for me

I had a punkbuster issue with BF2142 which I solved simply by running it as Administrator, it seems PB is blocked otherwise. Upon doing this TSO disapeared, so being logical I then ran that as admin. No luck. Ok one last shot at being simple...run BF2142, TS and TSO all as admin.
....Problem solved it works perfectly. I'm not running any in XP compatability mode, think I tried that and it didn't help.
Perhaps Lorax knew this already XD but I thought I'd post it incase it helps anyone. Downside is it competely ruins my "shortcut" of a batch file by now having to enter 3 Admin passwords and theres nothing I can do about that (I already tried automatic entering but it disables all input...good security feature though). Could just log on as Admin in the first place whenever I want to play BF2142 I guess.
