Unvanquished Alpha 2: Voice Say

This is an old post from the year 2012 recovered from the Web Archive.

Hello everyone, In this blog entry I will give an overview of the voice say system which will be included in Unvanquished’s second alpha release, scheduled for April 1st 2012.

What is Voice Say?

The voice say system allows players to communicate with teammates using prerecorded audio files. When using a voice say message, a contextual version will also be printed to teammates as a way of identifying who it was from, and as a form of fallback support for players who do not have sound enabled.
