Does it work? My buddy and I have been trying to make it work for a few days now and cant seem to work. Any ideas? We both have eMacs if that makes any difference.

Thanks for the help :D

It's essentially broken. Ryan Gordon, the coder porting the title for Mac has been trying to find time to fix it. The problem is in the openal.dylib file (in the system folder of the application bundle: control click UT2004 then select "Show Package Contents").

He even released a beta version of the openal.dylib file that fixed VoIP, but it was prone to crashing the entire game, quite frequently. I haven't checked to see if VoIP was fixed in the latest patch (3354), but I don't think so.

We were helping him test that verision, you can read more, and download it here at Macologist (http://www.macologist.org/viewtopic.php?t=467).

For more specific and up-to-date help, I really recommend the experts at the UT2Kn division of Clan MacAddict (http://www.macaddict.com/forums/forum/58). I know that they keep very abreast of the latest VoIP UT news.

Ryan just updated his .plan (http://icculus.org/cgi-bin/finger/finger.pl?user=icculus) today, with some intriguing hints about openAL and Tiger. It's possible there will be some improvements when Tiger comes out.

Actually, no new post is done by ryan. I saw the same .plan 2 weeks ago when I looked at it. So, no progress is done. Even if some progress is done, it isn't posted anywhere on the entire site.

Could you use another app for VoIP, like Skype, running in the BG?

I play on the VCTF servers mostly and they use a lot of VoIP. I don't have a headset but I'll try talking using my Powerbook mic and see what happens.
