@  Dbl Incertion : (25 November 2014 - 10:31 PM) Agreed
@  twentyONE : (25 November 2014 - 06:58 PM) Far Cry and Dragon Age are both AWESOME! I've never played any other previous games of either series, besides Blood Dragon.  Assassins Creed will just have to wait until closer to Christmas--needs more patches anyway. Final Stand is effin' great and Halo matchmaking is working better!  Great season for gaming!
@  Conal Cuan : (25 November 2014 - 03:53 PM) Argh! I missed it Gremlin
@  Alpine gremlin : (25 November 2014 - 01:29 PM) I`m streaming World of Tanks if anyone is interested. http://www.twitch.tv/alpine_gremlin
@  Andrew6679 : (25 November 2014 - 11:01 AM) I'm so excited Dark Souls 2 is coming to PS4!
@  Chilli2627 : (25 November 2014 - 07:43 AM) at least it's not the playstation side this time
@  Dbl Incertion : (24 November 2014 - 04:49 PM) When will sony up their game and stop being hacked shut down broke and other bullshit?
@  Dbl Incertion : (24 November 2014 - 04:49 PM) https://tv.yahoo.com...-185042308.html
@  Mister Maf : (21 November 2014 - 12:04 AM) http://bit.ly/1t9ogM1 Dammit Nintendo, what are you even doing?!  Inexcusable in this day and age.
@  naesssuhna : (20 November 2014 - 08:55 PM) BF4?
@  naesssuhna : (20 November 2014 - 08:50 PM) ahyone playing on xbox 1?
@  Myelencephalous : (20 November 2014 - 12:09 PM) Played Final Stand for one match (all I had time for) and, yes, I can verify the sheer thrill of the podlauncher!!!  It had me laughing
@  Chilli2627 : (20 November 2014 - 10:08 AM) Try Destiny Free! and save your progress if you buy the full game!! https://games.yahoo....-020010042.html
@  Dbl Incertion : (20 November 2014 - 09:15 AM) Dragon Age is FANTASTIC btw. My buddy and I have been playing the multiplayer a bit which is like ME3 + Diablo + Awesome. Could use another buddy or two since its 4man (most random pugs we get are... pugly)
@  twentyONE : (19 November 2014 - 04:17 PM) Pretty sweet although I haven't driven one yet, just been in the gunner seat. They have 360 degree range of motion. Not near as cool as the PODLAUNCHERS....that's right, human podlaunchers.  Climb in, aim, and rocket your pod across the map!
@  Myelencephalous : (19 November 2014 - 01:50 PM) twentyone, how are the HOVERTANKS???
@  THE RED DRAGON : (19 November 2014 - 01:30 PM) to add to twentyone - can you easily jump from 1st person to 3rd?  Id like 1st for in person but 3rd for driving
@  Dbl Incertion : (19 November 2014 - 01:26 PM) https://www.yahoo.co...-150007922.html
@  twentyONE : (19 November 2014 - 10:59 AM) Question for those that have played GTA: is the first person stuff just a gimmick or is it awesome?  Seems that most of the feedback I've seen is pretty negative about the "jankiness" of the controls and disappointing gunplay....
@  twentyONE : (18 November 2014 - 09:55 PM) Final Stand maps are fantastic! Hangar 21 is one of the overall best Battlefield maps....great layout, good structures, night time in the mountains with moonlight...
@  THE RED DRAGON : (17 November 2014 - 09:19 PM) me like Far Cry :)
@  Dbl Incertion : (17 November 2014 - 07:30 PM) Damnit red mr early access on every game. I'm officially a you tube personality so send me games early all you vidja game developers!!!
@  DBMgamer : (17 November 2014 - 11:52 AM) Well in destiny's patch notes now there is finally a reason to go to the Outfitter... But they patched the Cheat spot on the Archon strike.  Time to find a new cheat spot, lol  :Devil:
@  twentyONE : (17 November 2014 - 10:10 AM) In honor of GTA, I give you: http://youtu.be/xLpfbcXTeo8 -- Those that have played will understand. Those who haven't ....I only hope you can experience this song like I did, driving the California coast at sunset, on the way to an inevitably violent/emotional confrontation in the desert.
@  Dbl Incertion : (17 November 2014 - 08:41 AM) I'm at target and can confirm they are doing a guaranteed $30 in store credit towards gtaV ps4 or Xbox one from last gen gtav
@  Andrew6679 : (16 November 2014 - 10:52 PM) I'm in.....
@  THE RED DRAGON : (16 November 2014 - 09:54 PM) i'd let her lol
@  Grumpy Joe : (16 November 2014 - 09:29 PM) Jennifer wants to drain your dragon!!?? bring it.... http://www.usmagazin...awards-20141511

FIRETEAM CREATION AND USAGE GUIDE

Created by MIND BULL3TS



---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- - - INTRODUCTION - - -

This guide is to help all understand how to set up FireTeams. FireTeams (from now on shortened to FT or FTs) are an important part of Brink's Team-play, although you wouldn't know it from any tutorial aspects in the game. They simply don't mention anything on FTs. Even though the process is remarkably simple, because there is no mention of it at all to the player, the system can easily go unnoticed. The key advantage to being in a FT is HUGE!

You can now use in game voice to interact with your teammates! Novel idea huh?


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- - - WE HAVE AN ISSUE, BUT HERE IS A TISSUE - - -

"Public VOIP" (Voice chat with your entire team during a match and everyone pre/post match) is an option in the game, but it has to be manually activated by the server as the option is deactivated by default... The option that is left ON by default is "Fireteam VOIP". So this is the more reliable way of having in-game voice chat...

Exhibit A

But MIND BULL3TS! I want to be able to voice chat with my entire team! Not just my "Fireteam!".... Whats a Fireteam anyway?

Well I have good news for you, person who randomly yelled at me when I was creating this thread... FTs seem to be uncapped as to how many players can be involved. I say this with a little ignorance as the largest FT I have is 5 but I wouldn't imagine them limiting it to anything other than 4 if they were going to limit it at all, since the team max is 8...


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- - -FIRETEAM SETUP - - -

First while in a match press ESC to bring up the in game Menu, from there click the Scoreboard Button.

Exhibit B

Once at the Scoreboard screen, highlight the player you want to start a FT With (See Exhibit B for a guide to choosing desirable FTeammates) left click to open that player's menu.

Exhibit C
Posted Image


Once at the Player Menu click the second option entitled " Create fireteam with #Playername# "

Exhibit D
Posted Image
*note I used some image editing trickery to show the entire text of that option, it will scroll the entire length of the message in-game


This will send a Fireteam Invite to that player. Now using your "Fireteam VOIP" key you can voice chat with your FTeammates.

Exhibit E

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
- - - JOINING FIRETEAMS AND OTHER ODDS AND ENDS - - -

I also know there is a way to request to join an existing FT. I know this not because I have done it myself, I literally have never seen a FT before I make one, but I have been "petitioned" to join by other players. It pops up as another message to press F1 and you "vote" to let them in. That being said I imagine the process is relatively similar to creating a FT, where the player clicks on a member of the existing FT and clicks something to the effect of "Ask to join Fireteam"...

---------------------

Also, there was a setting overlooked by the devs for the Volume levels for VOIP in and out, the following commands will fix this issue:

s_volume_voipin_db 0
s_volume_voipout_db 0

These commands can be entered into the console directly during the game or placed before loading the game in your Autoexec.cfg file located here:

Steam\userdata\########\22350\local\base
*Note If you don't already have one, create a notepad file named Autoexec.cfg there, open with notepad and paste...


-------------------------------
Well I think I covered everything. Hope this helps build the teamwork lvl in Public Servers.
