  1. Voice chat is great, but -- FOR TEXT CHAT: Please copy the skype interface (your friends should not have to accept an invitation)

    everything is in the topic - PLEASE do this =) i run a website with 100k unique visitors daily and will promote your program -so- much if you do this. would love to make the permanent switch from skype.

    • Dolby Axon app

      I think Dolby Axon should make an app for apple/android phones/products where you can manage your account and groups and talk to your groups and plan for your next games(and things like that)

      • Be able to control inbound volume levels from other users. As in what is available in Ventrilo

        Ventrilo has a special effect that you can change the inbound volume from other users so you don't have to ask that person to mess with their outbound. I would really like to see that feature in this program.

        This is the one feature that will make or break this program for my clan and me.

          Is the issue here that you would like to emphasize or de-emphasize a particular user? Or do you have friends that are always too loud or too quiet? We have automatic dialog leveling that should take care of the 2nd issue.

          Please let us know in the comments.

        • Guild groups

          Add the ability to join a guild in Dolby Axon so that my guild mates are automatically added as friends.

              Can you tell us more details about what you would like here? We designed permanent chats to address this, but people are still voting for this. We’d like to know what specifically you are looking for and will do our best to address it.

              Again, please let us know in the comments.

              • Promoted Admins should be able to move players so they can coordinate groups better

                Promoted Admins need the ability to move players on the grid. For example (for World of Warcraft Raiding), Move healers to the far left side, DPS to the far right side, and have tanks and raid leaders in the middle. This way when people are more vocal, we will be able to use the surround sound to the fullest. Healers will be loud to healers, DPS to DPS, and tanks/Raid leaders to everyone. Less useless cross chatter.

                  • Upgrade voice codec to Opus

                    http://opus-codec.org/

                    Mumble, Teamspeak, Skype, and many other voip chat programs are all moving to the latest and greatest audio codec. The quality level for the same bitrate is unbeatable.

                    Any voip program not moving to Opus is doing themselves a great injustice.

                    http://opus-codec.org/examples/

                    Unfortunately Axon has not shown any intent to continue development or upgrade their program, but I thought I would just append to this list of feature requests. I think another chat project should come along and innovate with all these great ideas.

                        I’m marking this as started because we have just released an API for the Dolby Axon desktop client that enables game mods and addins. We’re really excited to see what the community creates. Hopefully we’ll see all kinds of mods, addins, and other applications that integrate Dolby Axon voice chat in ways we haven’t even thought of.

                        You can read more about this release in our knowledgebase: http://support.axon.dolby.com

                                      • Include a lightweight Drawing pad to chatrooms

                                        A drawing pad that you can use to communicate with other users in the chat.

                                        One use could be for explaining tactics or postioning. A nice feature would be the ability to drag a users icon & name into the picture to show that persons planned postion in the fight. Also Some generic blank icons that you can name as your targets or enemies.

                                        The best plans always come with a nice diagram ^^

                                        • Searchable or Joinable rooms

                                          Instead of having to be invited to a channel make it so they can search or type in the channel name, like ventrilo's servers. Also allow passwords on channels, if there is not one already; i did not notice if there was.
