  • Teamspeak Overlay (for when you're not in-game)

    Well everyone knows how TSO works in games like bf2 but is there a teamspeak overlay that works when youre in the windows desktop environment? Basically i want a teamspeak overlay that would show who is talking in TS while im talking in irc, or writing messageboard posts or whatever.

    Well, TSO works on any 3d screen, some tecnical term. I'm not sure if anything would actually work on the desktop, but I bet it's possible. I don't know of any program that does that, though.

      Vista uses a 3D desktop (ie. it renders through the 3D part of the video card instead of the 2D part) so maybe TSO will work there.

      The "3D" here refers to the part of the chip used, not how things look. Most video card vendors don't develop the 2D part of the chip any further, while the 3D part gets faster and faster. So a 3D desktop should be far more responsive than the existing 2D one.

            To be more specific, TSO manipulates the DirectX code that is used to render the 3D graphics, and adds the said text when appropriate etc. This is the same technology that is used to create "wall hacks" and other hacks or cheats for games, which is why many anti-cheat programs can detect TSO as a cheat tool unless they have programed an exemption for it (Punkbuster and Cheating-Death are two that I know of that have had to create an exemption rule to allow TSO to work).

            So, with that said, if you can find any tool that would render your general desktop environment using DirectX, then it would work perfectly fine! The only problem you would have then is that you need to enable TSO *before* you start the game/program that will be using the DirectX.

            Does such a program exist? I have no clue... but at least now you know what you need to find to get TSO to work in such a way.
