I hope to update this guide when we get more knowledge about the system.
- Make sure windows mic transmit volume is not at 100%, try 85%. Turn boost on.
- Set voip to default levels
The levels are: 65% for receive volume, 50% for transmit volume
- Find someone who has voip working
- If you hear them clearly, adjust master volume to +-30%
Adjust Master volume or game fx volume so that the loudness of game sounds matches the loudness of the voip. 30% is just my setting that works for me, I put it there as a good value to start off with.
- Adjust your computer/speaker volume to get desired volume overall.
The important thing is, if you hear any people clearly, do not touch voip receive and transmit levels if at all possible
The way it seems to work is that for the voip levels there is an ideal volume level, if you go over that for
-transmit => everyone will hear you distorted
-receive => you will hear everyone distorted
In the most recent patch I noticed they changed the default voip levels from 65/75 to 65/50. I had requested a change various times in the forums myself, they changed it without anyone noticing, but it is a great change. For most people now default levels are fine. Problems occur when they adjust voip levels because it sounds really low compared to other game sounds
It is really weird but that is how it is. It takes a little to get set up nicely, but it is worth it, please take the time.
Thanks a lot to mach10 for taking initiative to test this with me at length!
Please report if you have problems still, or if you have additional or updated information for building a better guide.
