    How to fix the VOIP issue

    Annoyed by the constant ramblings of other players in your multiplayer games? Trying to enjoy coop with your friend but prefer ventrilo, teamspeak, mumble, or some other voice communication program? Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days apparently didn't think it necessary to add an in-game option for disabling in-game VOIP or enabling push-to-talk mode. Here's a work-around solution:


    1) Steam seems to manage your VOIP settings for in-game voice communication. So start by exiting Kane & Lynch: Dog Days and then open your main window in steam. Your main window should show 5 drop-down menus at the top-left of your screen.

    2) Click the first drop-down menu called "Steam," and click "Settings."

    3) Click the far right tab called "VOICE."

    4) At the bottom where it says "When voice chat is active:" click "Use a push-to-talk key to transmit voice."

    5) Click the field next to "Push to talk key" and press the key on your keyboard you would like to assign as the button for activating your microphone. If you wish to never use your microphone, simply choose a key on your keyboard you won't ever use while playing the game.

    6) Click "OK" at the bottom of the window.

    Steps 4-6 will make it so you don't transmit by accident. But what about receiving transmissions? To address this issue follow steps 7-8:

    7) Under the VOICE tab, turn the "Receive volume" meter all the way to the left to turn it off. This will make it so that you do not hear anything from other players.

    8) Click "OK" at the bottom of the window.


    Please make this thread a sticky so that others might avoid the hastle of having to search for this helpful solution.
