Conan Exiles Begins Testing Vivox for In-Game Voice Communication
The Conan Exiles forum has a brief post to let players know that a new voice chat will soon be added to Testlive for players to try out. The goal is for a more stable client with improved quality and to include stereo sound. The new VOIP will be using Vivox rather than the current peer-to-peer client.
When using the new in-game voice chat, the sound of your voice is broadcast to a server at Vivox, where it’s mixed to the correct audio track and sent to the game clients.
Vivox’ server places the audio on a correct track in relation to your character in the game. If the speaker is far away their voice will sound distant. If they’re standing to your right, the sound of their voice will mainly come from the right audio channel.
Also of note for players is that the decay timer is being reverted to its pre-holiday level of 7-8 days. Over the holidays, it was 14-16 days.
