Rllmuk Ventrillo Server

149 posts in this topic

AS OF THURSDAY 10th OF APRIL. SONIC.TYPEFRAG WILL CHANGE TO BE HYDROGEN.TYPEFRAG

This emergency move has had to come about, due to many users experiencing really bad performance over the past couple of weeks. This is due to our server being labled "very high" population.

<a href="http://www.ventrilo.com/" target="_blank">http://www.ventrilo.com/</a>

there is now a Mac Client in Beta for this, it's been used by a few people I believe and seems to work nicely.

Just to make it clearer - the set-up when you open the client for the first time is as follows:

User Name

Name - bung in anything you want but it helps to use a WoW character name or rllmuk forum name

Server

Name - anything you want...I just called it rllmuk

Host - hydrogen.typefrag.com

Port - 12364

Password - eagles (thought I may as well make it public because it's easier and because I can kick/ban/change password at will ;) )

We have a 75 license server so plenty of space

Sounds like a good idea (though talking over the internet still scares me, wheres the voice coming from!?!) although of course you are isolating the many Mac users out there...

What?

I'M the only mac user? Ah ok then, continue :angry:

There appears to be a Mac client on the download page, I'm going to give it a go installing it on my powerbook :(

edit: Ignore me, that was the server! Apparently there's a client in development though, which is nice :D

How do we get this pinned? We really should put the server details in the thread and pin it up before it gets swallowed.

PM a mod. Alan or Toonfool should oblige. And I'm not a good talker over headsets. You'll find out how northern and uncouth I am :unsure:

I'll probably give in on voice chat and try this later on...

Problem is I only have a crappy 'desk mic' on top of my monitor - which is about 8 years old - so I suspect it's going to sound terrible...

Thing is, I often play WoW with headphones on anyway and I'm too fond of my Sennheiser 'Concorde' headphones too much to swap them in for some crappy Labtec jobbie...

I also dont fancy one of those single-ear thingies UNDER headphones - erm

Any ideas?

I guess a single-ear headset when I'm playing with speakers and the desk mic when I'm playing with headphones?

I've been playing with Sennheiser headphones recently too!

Went for this in the end: http://www.plantronics.com/europe_union/en...0109/prod440014

Probably overkill but it's nice and lightweight and not one of those oversized 'balance this above your ears for six hours' designs.

\o/

Just output the voice to headphones and use the desk mic. Should be fine. Sound quality might not be great but worth a try.

There's settings in Ventrilo to determine where the input /output goes and they seem to overide PC settings with no problems.

Server (Host) = defend.typefrag.com

Port = 12364

erm....username = you don't have one yet but I can set one up quickly. I only set up the people that were already on Skype.

I'll set you up as ABA - Kerrang for now? Will PM the password.

Random problems a go-go. Having it set up so that you click a button to talk, yet I can talk anytime, and then setting a button to talk and no-one can hear me :ph34r:

Gave up in the end. Need to look at it more I guess. Need to find the volume control too, as I managed to figure out how to turn the annoying voiceover guys volume down but none of the rest of you noisy bastards :wacko:

Done all that, still doesnt work. Can hear you fine, but for some screwy reason, press to talk will not work, despite working yesterday without a key press :ph34r:

Edit: Aha! I think its sorted, unless it goes wacko again overnight. Ten times better than Skype, performance wise as well.

I installed this last night - easy as pie to setup, bit more faffy to make it work properly tho.

Desk mic seems to work OK-ish, but for some reason I can't make it recognise the middle/side buttons on my mouse for push-to-talk :(

CAPS LOCKS isn't a bad choice meanwhile - if I could only stop it actually locking CAPS :D

I'd definately use this for grouping/instances etc. - not sure I'd use it for general chat tho - easily distracts you from the important 'levelling process' :)

p.s. Absolutely no lag issue - indeed I got the best latency I've seen in WoW for EONS when I was using it (99ms - usually 120-180ish)

RSHIFT was a good suggestion for a keypress from Nicky. I was just a little annoyed to hear him shout "Bears!" over the top of that lovely opening cutscene. Grrr.

Ha! No.

I need to sort out my mic, then I'll get on this.
