    it doesnt matter how fast / slow you are you will start to love the Mini friday. If not for the racing then for the banter on TS. Get yourself on TS :)

    I have actually questions about TS, maybe someone can help.
    I can't hear much, because of the sound of the engine and race noisy but I may adjust different volumes I guess. Do you guys turn the engine sound down?
    I have no idea who is talking. Is there any way you can see in you screen who is talking?
    I use the push-to-talk way but I find difficult to push the button and drive at the same time. What system do you use?
    Cheers :)
  11. Push2Talk here and I leveled up TS to overcome the issue not hearing anything. I do have a second screen, but during the race I do not much care who is talking, but after some time you anyway recognisze the voices.

    I had TS already. I lowered the engine but I mostly had to adjust the volume from TS: I could not hear anything at the beginning! But I kept quiet so far: already pretty busy racing and listening to you guys! Had some nice laughs tho… :thumbsup:
    I use the voice recognition and it seems it working: I talked a bit in the test session after the race and it seems the others answered me… :)

    If you are running windows 7 (8/8.1 and 10 may have the same option) you can change the volume settings of indevidual apps / programs. If you click on the volume icon on the taskbar hen click mixer you can lower the gave volume. I run AMS on 10% if i recall and master volume at 100%

    As for the push to talk i have a button mapped on my wheel spesifically for that so it makes it easier.

    And to see who is talking there is a plugin for TS to do that but it doesnt (i cant get it to) work in AMS.

    A question regarding default set up. I save my favourite setup (just fuel and brake pressure) but it doesn't keep for all sesions. What I'm doing wrong?
