The Texas Chain Saw Massacre uses team based voice chat, and communicating with your team will be important. Players on the opposite team will not be able to hear you while in a match, but you can chat together in the lobby and post match while viewing scores. You may run into issues where you’re unable to be heard by others on your team or your voice quality might suffer.
The steps below will guide you to fixing the following types of issues:
- My voice is low and no one can hear me.
- There is constant static over my mic.
- I sound like I'm in a tunnel.
Review Game Audio Settings
Review Options > Audio to set the following:
- Check that Voice chat is enabled. Toggle this to disabled, and on again and apply the setting.
- To the right of Microphone, choose your preference for open or push to talk on. To use push to talk, press down on the D pad. Try to change this setting to determine if only one option is acting up.
- Review Voice Chat Volume, if possible increase the volume to make sure it isn’t muted.
Review Your Audio Settings
Voice chat on PC will use the microphone set up in your Windows settings, this means that sometimes an update or new device might change the default settings unexpectedly. Before troubleshooting it is recommended to restart your PC.
- Make sure your microphone and audio output is set correctly by searching Sound Settings in system settings.
- To select inputs for specific programs choose Advanced Sound options.
- Test your microphone in System Settings > Sound Settings or another application to ensure it is picking up your voice.
Check Devices Connected to Your PC
- Disconnect any additional devices that have microphones or play audio that are not being used (webcams, controllers, bluetooth speakers etc).
- Close or restart any voice or video conferencing software like Discord, Microsoft Teams, or Zoom that may be running in the background.
