Roger Wilco is a real-time communication tool developed by GameSpy Industries. It allows users to talk or voice-chat with their contacts while they play online games. This tool can be used with any online games such as Diablo, Half-life, and Quake. It allows the users to speak with their friends or with other players instead of typing messages that will be sent back and forth.
Roger Wilco is a voice-over-IP (VoIP) application that can be used with any multiplayer online video game. It is usually used with a headset and a microphone. The name Roger Wilco comes from two popular terms used in two-way radio communication: Roger meaning “I understand” and Wilco meaning “will comply.” It has an intuitive user interface with sound quality that surpasses that of two-way radio. It is a standalone chat application that can be used without a second soundcard. Aside from a voice chat technology, it also provides the users with a feature for adding a voice-chat room to the user’s website.
