F1 2017 Voice Communication in Multiplayer doesnt work


SkyLiNe02021

Recommended Posts

Hello, i searched through some forums already but noone seemed to  have the problem i have..
My problem is about the Online Voice communication between the players. i can see that they talk, for example in the lobby i see their icon blink if they talk and ingame i see the name who talks, but i cant hear them at all. the ingame sound is fine, i can hear the cars, i can hear everything just fine (idk if something maybe sounds a bit different since its a new game but the game gives sound to my headset) 
The other players can hear me, i tested that with friends in the lobby, they told me via steam that they hear me. 
I checked my options few times, my push to talk is ON and i tried changing the audio from automatic "standart" to my headset only. I use a headset but an extra mic, idk if that has anything to do with it just an extra info..
I tried to repair the installation but, nothing was found and after starting it it didnt fix it. 
Idk what i can do to fix it..

Our league use Discord for in-game comms. It's free. You can set Voice Activity or PTT channels.

You should adjust the Control Panel|Sounds|Communications "When Windows detects communications activity to 'Do nothing'" if you dislike the auto mixer levels and then set them yourself.

We then mute the in-game lobby audio and set PTT to On (map it to something you don't really use). You can still give Jeff voice commands.

As I posted in another thread, voice control randomly broke. Restoring from backup fixed it.

I've passed this to our test team to see if they can work out what is happening. If you find any other workarounds in the meantime then please let us know.

Dear @Hoo

the problem seems appearing on pc as following:

If aplayer uses a usb device - output sign as "standard communicationdevice" ... no voices of the ingame Push to talk hearable.
If u change it to digital output or chinch output...no problems appearing.

Hope you can follow this description,

Greetings.

USB devices are separate sound controllers. The game always picks up the new sound controller if the game is set to 'default sound device' (which it is by default). Windows 10 almost always sets a new sound controller as the default. This seems then to upset the game until you toggle the game back to the specific device you want to use. This is also what @Far1an is saying.

This I think is also part of the issue with Bluetooth headsets as they appear as a new sound device as well.

I can replicate it with Realtek HD and GPU audio (I have Nvidia GTX but AMD has HDMI Audio too). Same but worse with SB X-Fi and even worse if I use the USB part of a G430. Any Bluetooth audio or USB headset should replicate it too.

Windows 10 16299.192 and game patch 1.11

Bonjour, j'ai essayer avec les versions précédentes f1 2016, f1 2014 et j'attends bien les voix des autres joueurs, donc il y a bien quelque chose qui ne vas pas sur f1 2017.
Hello, I try with the previous versions f1 2016, f1 2014 and I'm waiting for the voices of other players, so there is something wrong with f1 2017.
