In-game voice chat

    Just wondering if anyone knows a good (preferably free :) ) program for in-game voice chat for games like DAoC?

    I had a look at Game Voice, but their free version limits chat groups to 4 ppl unless someone's got the bought version. And even then for every 3 ppl extra you want to invite into the chat one person has to have the bought version.
    Yahoo! Messenger works, but only problem is that the voices "overwrites" each other so if someone coughs or anything you can't hear what the other person said.

    So, anyone got any suggestions?

    Ventrilo - http://www.ventrilo.com/
    Have no personal experience of it but have heard nothing but good things.

    Team Speak - http://www.teamspeak.org/
    Have used it extensively and it is very nice. But like all voice programs a good host is needed for maximum quality/numbers.

    Those are the 2 off the top of my head. I didn't mention Roger Wilco as that is Gamespy and therefor not worth the effort.

    [reminisce]I remember the good ol' days when Game Voice was Battlecom and all was good. I seem to remember another called teamsound which worked well at the time.[/reminisce]

    Ventrilo is the best IMO. It so clear and easy to use. Its IMO clearer than using a conventional phone line!

    Like i mentioned above. The problems with quality most people encounter are using the wrong codecs and hosting to many people at too high a quality on shitty home lines :)
