Communicating with other players in game

Recommended Posts

So im having a problem with talking with other players.

 

Ive got a mic but never plug it in so that’s my first thing I’ll do. I assume just press X to talk?

 

The next thing is chat. A good example was last night. Ive just joined a VTC (viva) and came across another VTC driver. I could hear him wanting to chat on CB but I couldn’t as my mic wasn’t set up. I then went into chat and saw he’d been trying to chat I there but I hadn’t seen it.

 

How do you guys have the chat visible and do you type while driving? I find that impossible.

For this, if he chat but you couldn't see a message, you may turn off chat by pressing F9 by mistake, then you login in game and press F9 again to turn on chat, after that you can see a message

You can type while driving, that's normal 

But I guess you turned off the chat while driving, please try press F9 again then you can see other players chat

And when you drive with keybroad, it's difficult for you to type while driving because you can control while typing.

So if you use

Typing and driving is one the worst ways to have an accident. Especially the keybroad the drivers. It is in fact hard to do both at the same time but no one wants to pull over to send a message each time so its something we all get used to. :)

Since I use keyboard and mouse It's a bit easier for me to drive and type at the same moment, but you also need to have fast typing skills, so you won't crash into anyone, of course, that's a bit dangerous, because this can cause a crash but I just always try to find straight road where I don't need to use my keyboard while typing, that's all magic.

You're right, X to talk, and obviously plug in your mic. You can toggle chat visibility with F9. It's not that hard to type while driving, especially if you drive with mouse or pad or wheel. If you drive with a keyboard then it's hard.

Спасибо за ответы. Итак, чтобы напечатать, вы нажимаете 'y', чтобы открыть панель чата (моя покрывает половину экрана!)

The window of all opens the same. There are only two options for you. 1. Write while driving with a fully open chat, which is not safe. 2. Stop on the sidelines and write in chat

Hello There :=)

 

It's dangerous to write something about chatting while driving, but it doesn't cause problems for me because I use the mouse, I can turn the steering wheel and write something through chat. As I said, it's really simple and I would recommend it to you.

So I hooked up my mic and tested it in the settings. Seems to be working but then when I go to press X (and hold to talk), I don't get any noise or 'clicks' or pop ups on screen or anything to even tell me im broadcasting. Is that normal?

Don't make the mistake to write and drive at the same time. If you see that your microphone doesn't work, you pull over, turn on the hazard lights and you write or figure out what's wrong with your microphone.

Thanks for the replies. So to type, are you pressing 'y' to open up the chat panel (mine covers half the screen!) and type in the there or is there a quicker way?

When you press "y" to chat, the chat window always covers your screen, and there's no faster way. Therefore, I recommend that you do not chat while driving (specially when you drive with keybroad), it is very dangerous or you can stop your truck beside the road then you can chat

if its a short message then you can type it really fast while driving, but if you dont have cargo then you can even stop really fast and type, but no one has time for that :D especially if you have cargo, until you stop and then start again, the driver that wanted to talk or said something, he will be long gone.
