Thread: Game launches with options despite non specified, disables voicechat

    Game launches with options despite non specified, disables voicechat

    When launched from steam, main menu informs correctly that 'voice chat disabled by -novoicechat launch option'.
    The launch options are empty in steam properties.
    I can launch the game executable from command line and there's no problem there.

    Linux 5.1.3
    I have never messed with this game's launch options.
    Steam says they game is up to date.
    I validated the cache, 1 file was missing and reaquired but the problem persists.

    Where might this option be coming from?

  2. #2
    I checked localconfig.vdf and steam isn't storing any unwanted launch options in there.
    Adding more launch options like nointro does work, but doesn't undo the novoicechat option.
    -log doesn't show anything about voice chat.

    Another update
    It seems to be some kind of defensive decision by the game to disable voice chat. I can join games, but the entire game freezes & must be killed after just a few seconds--I suspect it happens when voice chat is received. With voice chat disabled, I can stick around in the same server.
    Its last words in console are

    ( [agc] Initial GetMicVolume()=0
    ( [agc] Initial volume too low, raising to 12

    then it hard freezes.
    This is happening on linux but not on windows.

    Indeed the developers disabled voicechat due to it triggering a crash issue.

    So essentially Tabletop Simulator is currently not working on linux.

    Guess I'll take a few months off to see if they've fixed it.
