  • Singularity - timing out

    So I currently own 5 of your voicepacks and am using the paid version of your Voice Attack product. Overall, it works well. I do notice at times I will say a command after a length of time of not speaking to voice attack and get no response. I try multiple times and then realize it has timed out. Typically this is after about 5 minutes of not using it. I have gone into the protocol override options and set the timeout to 999, but it still occurs after only a few minutes. Any suggestions? I fix it for now by saying wake up, but then have to wait for it to initialize, which can be inconvenient if a pirate shows up and I am trying to switch systems quickly. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    What type of headset/mic setup are you using? Just curious because the "Time out" feature (for "stand by"/"on my mark" commands) is purely a duration for how long VA should wait before the command gets cancelled. This time out feature doesn't affect any other commands in our voicepack

    Now saying that, you *could* be suffering a case of Windows deciding to "power down" unused USB devices (after x period of time)

    2) Not to be used when upset... will void warranty
    3) Stoke me a clipper i will be back for dinner
    4) Never tell Gangrel to do anything... he will probably get it wrong

      Thank you for replying. I am using a Logitech G430 USB headset. I don't believe it is a Windows issue as the Voice Attack program will not respond to voice commands, but if I say "wake up" I will hear a beep sound and then the current voicepack will say something along the lines of "initiating" and then a few other things and it will go back to working normally. This is more a matter of Voice Attack itself just going into a sort of sleep mode that I am able to wake up using the wake up command via voice.

      Again, this only occurs if I am out exploring and scanning a system which takes me a few minutes. During the scanning process, several minutes can go by. Voice attack will work fine when i first log into ED. This only seems to occur after lengthy voids in conversation.

        just curious, but does the mic icon get crossed out when it "goes to sleep"?

          Hi Felowen , Gangrel could it be something with the USB properties/power management in the DeviceManager?
          There is an ON / OFF... (see screenshot)
