I just paid for a Ventrilo for us to use, It is 50 slot and I will pay for it in full. I am giving Bartel Full admin on it and he can give out admin as he sees fit. This is just temporary, if we decided to make this vent our permament home I will upgrade to 100 slots if needed.

I'm probably showing my age, but what is a Ventrillo? It sounds like an Italian pastry.

It is a voice chat service Like Mumble or Teamspeak or more plainly a Skype where people can come and go as a please and talk with others.

Vent gave me issues with XIV :3
All the buttons I like to use for Push to talk would not work while inside XIV's window :3

Usually to fix that just run Ventrilo when you open it just right click and select run as adminstrator and that should fix your issue.

If you have a computer or laptop you can run vent on that.

Hm. I just went with Mumble.

Smart phones can be used as well. If you are on the android market, you are able to get free Apps for both Vent and Mumble.
As for Apple Market, I was never able to fund a free app to connect to Vent, but was able to find on for Mumble.

Friend I play the game with plays on ps3, he just used his phone to connect to the VoIP

Thank you for setting this up! This will be highly useful for Sunday night for the FC meeting for those who can't get online. Basically, we can just have a person who reads what I type in-game,and use the vent as a place only for people who can't log on.

Mumble is the one true gaming voicechat. Designed for sub-50ms latency and handling thousands of connections per server. The MWO Town Hall, for all it was worth, was a thing of beauty to behold. Something like 2700 people listening to a set of seven or eight people who had the floor. TS and Vent would crap themselves.

Almost forgot: mumble.ultros.net

512 slots and the'll do you an LS room on request.

Looks like no one is using it....would really help if they did because I needed to talk to anyone that is logged in to check something since no one that is logged in would bother coming and checking the forums while they play.

I thank you greatly for the opportunity, because I am sure we will use this later down the road. Maybe when we can consistently log in to the game. =) I said something to my friend about it, I want to get in and figure out volumes and settings that work.

Find some people talk to loud and other are quiet? Well try this below it should fix things for you.


Go to Setup
Enable Direct Sound
Select the SFX Button
Select Compressor and click Add.
Under Compressor Properties use the following settings:
Gain = Adjust for how loud you want people to be. (I use 15)
Attack = 0.01
Release = Around 500
Threshold = Around -30
Ratio = 100
Pre delay = 4.0
Done!

Is there a reason more people do not use Raid Call? It is free, and in my experience, has better sound quality then Vent does.

Well like anything in life you get what you pay for, I know raid call is free but it does not allow you to customize and be in control of the over all server like Vent does. Raid call can also be quite confusing. And as per the Quality it depends really on your set up and headphones. As I have used both and the codec for both seems Exactly the same Ones does not seem better.

Also depending on who you are talking with and what kind of setup / mic they have you will get the static / muffled / craptastic sound doesnt matter which system you are using.
