How can I tell if the server I am playing on has all talk turned on?
Unfortunately, there isn't a simple client-side console command to check whether or not all-talk is enabled.
There are less efficient giveaways, including:
- You can hear players on the other team speak.
- You see coloured speech bubbles above your teammates heads when they talk. (It will be a white bubble with a yellow
!if alltalk is disabled.)
- Ask in server.
- The server browser adds an
alltalkflag to any servers with alltalk enabled. (Although server administrators can remove this tag by force, so it's not 100%)
