View Full Version : concerned about mic broadcasting

10-24-2013, 08:27 PM
Just joined the alpha today. I went into options and looked on the audio screen. The game defaults to Transmit Voice and Automatic Voice with sensitivity turned up all the way.

I'm playing on a system with a built in mic and it makes me uncomfortable to think that I might be broadcasting all the time in game (especially when changing these options has no effect). I think the game should default to not Transmit Voice.

Debatably also a breach of the revised COPPA now that it includes voice.

I hadn't seen this, I'll have to check. currently I don't see mic options in the audio tab

I haven't seen voice options either, only game audio. I'll have to check as well.

Mind taking a screenshot since I haven't seen any voice chat options at all in this game.

Well this is awkward. I started up hex today to grab a screenshot and downloaded a patch and now all those options are gone.

It was there yesterday, now it's not.

Well you aren't crazy, there is definitely references to voice chat within the client. Why you had access to it who knows but it exists.
