View Full Version : PS3:BF Skypers?

06-08-2010, 09:44 AM
We had a good game last night on the PS3 side, at one point we ended up with 5 MPs playing rush. I jumped out of the 4 man squad to join the odd man out. It would have been great if our 2 man squad could have coordinated with the other MP squad. Without exposing sensitive skype data to non-members I will ask... do any of you PS3:BFers have skype ability? (i do). if we could have a couple dudes connected via skype we could better coordinate if we end up with multiple sqads in a match.

I usually have my laptop setup next to me on the couch with Skype running. I use a keycombo to mute my mic so i could yell on skype w/o having to wear two headsets.

I will have to look into the skype thing. I never have done it. But I would be up for it.

Are you going to run it on a computer/laptop? or a smartphone?

If a laptop, just goto http://www.skype.com and sign up and download the application (all free). The software will suggest you use your full name for your Skype account, but i made mine to match my PSN ID.

rock on!

I might be able to do this with a PC hooked up on my entertainment center. I guess I can run the audio wire to my headphones and split it, maybe. I normally play with headphones so as not to wake the little one. Hmm I will have to give this some thought.

ah, interesting idea. be advised though that it may be a risky idea to passively combine outputs... IE: you can split a signal with a "Y" adapter, but combining 2 signals into one using a "Y" can be a bad thing. if you need to double up on headphone inputs, it may be an idea to wear 'earbuds' under your headphones, that way you can have two feeds coming in (yet still have them electronically separate). Although that sounds like a big mess. If you had a small 2 channel mixer that would /actively/ combine the two audio sources for your headphone mix, you would be golden. (Although that sounds like a lot of messing around just so you can hear the odd man out in a 5 man squad.

humm. PS3 needs a Skype daemon.

The skype thread is in the MP members only area. Here is the link. (http://teammp.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=551)

well a good suggestion is to designate an operator in each squad to rely intel. Preferably someone who does not use a headset to game.
