Make sure you're running teamspeak as admin and check that your versions of both TS and TFAR are up to date.

Is it their proximity to you? Are they set to Whisper/Normal/Yelling? (Shift+~).

Talk over radios should be the same volume as TeamSpeak without TFAR.

Does it happen when you are on an official server (during Recruit Training or ITB)?

Do you happen to be using a crew helmet?

That helmet reduces the sound level of everything around you so that could be the case as well.

 

EDIT:

If radios are also quiet, the above is not the case.

last night i was talking to a guy seated in the hmmv with me and i couldnt hear him over local chat and with TFR it was still too low. i had to turn my volume up to 80 which is was higher than watching dvd movies which i set at 60. so there is a big difference. and yes this is all 15th servers

and when you open the Mixer in your Windows Volume Controls (while running TeamSpeak), if you change the TeamSpeak level does that help?

 

I do know that generally, in game voices are a little lower than if someone is speaking in Global in the same channel.

 

Other settings include the Playback settings in TeamSpeak > Options.

 

Not sure, until I did testing with you in game. I am available tomorrow night to do that if you need.

make sure you are running the right TFAR version or you will have very low volume. This is a bug with the .217 version so you might need to update TFAR

Are you talking about the speaker icon? That's not a volume error indicator, that tells you what volume (whisper, normal, yelling) you are talking at.

You I've fixed that, in the top right there's a pop up that says low volume occasionally

I also have this issue and have had it since TFAR 0.9.12.

 

my only solution is to take my TS master volume from its usual +4 or +5dB all the way up to +13dB (nearly a TWENTY times increase over base gain) when I get in game and TFAR activates. Unfortunately the downside of this is that I get severe ear pain if someone sniffles on global.

I'm not sure if you still have the issue, but it might be your windows lowering down your volume. Right Click speaker icon, select sounds, go to communication's, choose do nothing save your settings via hitting Ok button. I used to have this issue while using skype, it might be same thing.

Check out your in-game TFAR volume options too. Where you can find this settings as follows: Configure>Game>Configure Addons>Choose TFAR. I'm not sure if there is an in-game setting for direct communication volume, but there is for radio volume and intercom volume. I can't remember if there is, just check it out.
