Seriously?
You'd rather run 3 programs + an extra server you probably have to pay for than just one game-client with VOIP?

The fact that TS exists, works well and is very widely used, is precisely why it is not worth the time and resources for a developer to duplicate it within a given game/sim.

Especially when the biggest advantage would be user 'convenience' (not having to run separate programs).

A strong argument for integration is for exactly that - to integrate it. You can also do other things, like add effects, etc.. to the audio (noise, attenuation based on distance and terrain). You can't do that (easily, if at all) with external software.

TS and Tars...use them for every MP sortie we fly in the 476th vFG....

The only reason I would like to see ED have something to replace it that functions like TARS is because of issues like right now, a version compatable with DCS World and the latest version of TS doesn't exist. If ED integrated this type of VOIP into DCS we wouldn't have to worry about that anymore.

IVC works very well in BMS, would be nice if something like this was in DCS. Having numerous flights flying and if someone needs help or needs to talk to other flights they can ask over the guard channel. I have never used Tars, but heard it is very useful.

Tars is very similar to IVC but not (yet?) standalone.

Sorry for taking out all the bases.

Back on topic IVC works great!

Headspace is working on TARS for DCS:W and if I'm not mistaken he was looking into integrating TARS into DCS. I believe that is why he is now on the ED team...

One thing to keep in mind. MP players are but a very small portion of the purchasers of ED products. VOIP is useless to single player and is already handled for multiplayer by TS.
