Voice Chat Info (Mumble and Ventrilo)
« on: November 15, 2014, 07:33:24 PM »
Mumble Setup Guide

Good afternoon everyone!  I don't know if you guys have tried Mumble instead of Vent, but it is has some features that Vent doesn't have.  As a result, we have made sure that we have a Mumble server as well as a Vent server.  Eventually it might be nice to do a full migration over to Mumble, but for now we will keep both.  You can download the mumble client from their website.

After you have installed the program from this list and run it, there will be window with a list of servers that pops up.  In this screen hit add new at the bottom.  Use this information to access the server:

You name the channel yourself. COTP, Pink Bunnies, My Crazy Guildees, etc (whatever you want)
What you are known by to the guild/forum 


(Might Get SSL Certificate Error, just hit yes to override)

Once you have entered this information in and hit ok, you can click connect to this newly created server, which will be listed in your favorites.  After you have connected to the server, you need to do the following to allow full access to talk.

1.) Ask a guild member or look in the roster's Info Tab for our Access Token. In the menu at the top of the Mumble client, click Server, Access Tokens.  In the access tokens window, press add.  Type in the Access Token.  Once you have typed this word in, hit ok.
2.) The final step to make sure that you are fully registered with the server, you will right click your username in the lobby window, and hit register.  This will permanently register your username with our mumble server.  You will now be able to enter the groups that are created and talk in Mumble.

A few things to remember:
Mumble will automatically equalize volume between members, so you won't have to adjust any input/outputs for different people.
Mumble will automatically lower your game audio when someone is speaking, so you don't have to turn down your game audio anymore.

Setting Up Push-To-Talk:
If you would like to use push to talk, click Configure in the menu at the top of the client, and hit settings.  On the left side you will see Shortcuts, so click this.  On the shortcuts screen hit add at the bottom.  It will add an option that says Unassigned.  Click the word unassigned, and change it to Push-To-Talk.  Once that is done, click the area where it says shortcut on the right side.  Once you have click there, it will say Press Shortcut.  Whatever mouse or keyboard button that you hit next will now be your new push to talk button.  Once you have pressed the button you desire, it will be listed in the shortcut section.  Hit apply at the bottom and then test your button press.  If you were able to talk when it was pressed and people can hear you, hit ok and you are now ready to go.

Ventrilo Setup Guide

We have a Ventrilo server, replete with several channels for us to use for groupings and whatever else. It has now been approved for public use, Wishmakers and non-guild members may join the main lobby, while all other channels are password protected for full Order members only.

Ventrillo Settings Information:

Address: vent.circleofthephoenix.com
Port: 4934
Password: Ask a guildmate or see the roster info tab in game.

If you are running Windows Vista or 7, you must set up your shortcut to run as Administrator in order for Push to Talk to work in SWTOR. To do that, right-click on the Ventrilo icon, go to Properties, Compatability Tab, and check the box for "Run as Administrator".

Setting up Ventrillo:

1.First you need a microphone, of course. A headset microphone works well because then people won't be hearing themselves coming out the speakers, back into your microphone, and over Ventrilo back to you.

2.Test the microphone and make sure it works. What many people often suggest is that you try it with Sound Recorder in Windows. Go to Start-> Programs -> Accessories -> Entertainment -> SoundRecorder. Try recording something and make sure you get playback.

If you don't hear anything, check your volume control. Make sure your microphone is not muted. On many sound cards, you have to go to a special place in the mixer to set the recording level. That's the little gray speaker looking icon down by your clock. Here's how to set the recording level and desired input device on most PC's and soundcards:

Go to Options -> Properties and click on the radio button called "Recording".

3. Download and install the Ventrilo client. Here's where it can be found:


4.Install it, run it, and create a user name. It's totally arbitrary, just pick whatever you want people to see show up when you connect.

5. Click on the Setup button and adjust it the way you like. Here's how I have mine set, you can use it as an example:

6. Easy enough so far? Hit the "Test" button and make sure you can hear yourself talking. Adjust the Outbound so that it's clear and loud without being distorted and scratchy. The most common thing I've found is that the "outbound" volume is either too high or too low.

If you prefer to use "voice activated" mode instead of "push to talk", keep in mind that the higher the number on the sensitivity, the louder you'll have to be before the microphone kicks in and starts transmitting. Experiment to find the best setting.

7. Hit "OK", then click on the arrow next to the "Server" field to add/edit a server. Enter the info as follows:

Address: vent2.clanservers.com
Port: 4934
Server password: Ask a guildmate or see the roster info tab.

You can also use the settings at the beginning of these instructions to manually set up the log in.

8.We have several rooms set up for people to use. We have three rooms for regular groups, and one room for each council, where people can gather for raids and big events. Of course if you just want to chat, please stay in the lobby.

9. When you are done, please exit Ventrilo. We're limited to 40 users on at one time. We'd hate to have to kick people off the server to make room!

I hope everyone has fun hearing their guildmates over voice chat! It's 10X easier to coordinate groups when you don't have to stop what you're doing to type.

You can also click the handy dandy Donations block on the left side of the site. Between website hosting, voice chat, and development costs (sometimes we bring in freelancers to help build and integrate some of the more tricky apps and features on the website), there are quite a few costs associated with this guild.

Warning: I've seen at least one setup where the overlay in Mumble caused WoW and even Battle.net to crash. This was on a laptop that had a dedicated GPU. I think it caused a conflict between the NVidia graphics and the Intel, not sure.

If you try to log into Mumble on a different computer besides your usual one, it won't like you using your own username. You'll either have to create a new username or, if it's a new computer and you're done with your old one, Zanriel or someone will have to delete your name out so you can put it back in on your new computer.

I thought I'd just stand there and look pretty. Then I remembered, I'm not a Blood Elf!
