    I have a bunch of demos recorded in TF2 from before the Hatless update. Any attempt to open the files in TF2 for playback causes it to toss up a few resource loading errors that I'm assuming are the result of changes in the update, and the demo never loads.

    Really all I want from these files is the voice chat audio, the action on screen wasn't important. Is there any tool available that can extract that information independent from TF2 itself?

    On a similar note, for files that I can open, is there a way to make TF2 output just the audio track when recording playback using the startmovie command? I don't need the vast gigabytes of tga files.

  • While it is still in the experimental stages and only available in source code form (java), DemoReader by Asher Baker can decode and playback the voice chat audio from demos.

  • a way to change language. Tech support said that Russian users can only buy Russian version of Titanfall (both normal and Deluxe editions) and that they will not have any other in-game language... lines are cut off to fit the English files' length. Voice actors took liberty to change a few things to their liking. Audio effects like reverberation, echo and such are distinctively more basic. Overall audio quality is much lower, which greatly hinders immersion. When I was playing open beta, it was all in English and considerably better. The game also doesn't support Russian characters so

  • Strangely, with the new 1.2.5 update, if you ever force update or redownload the game to clear mods it doesn't download the audio files with at that point, it downloads them in the background as you... cuts off or something.

What makes this even weirder is that Mojang states the game can be played offline at any time as long as you have been online once to verify account is paid for. But lately people can't do that I guess, if I'm not the only one suffering

Further research seems to indicate that if I do manage to get it working through the controller, it will only be handling voice chat audio - no game audio output there. That would

  • I was playing Portal 2 today and I wanted to have in-game audio (environmental sounds) through my main desktop speakers, while having my voice chat output to my headset.

Is there any way I can set output voice to my headset and leave ingame audio to my main speakers?

  • In the Valve games (Left 4 dead, TF2, etc), I can either route all the sound through my speakers (which makes voice chat weird) or through the earpiece on my headset (which makes the in game sound effects sound crap).
