Ventrilo server.

Post by Fal on Thu Dec 17, 2009 3:43 pm

A few people have mentioned vent now, I would like to get a handle on how much people actually want it.

Questions -

What is Ventrilo?
It is a a from of VoIP software. Basically it allows users to chat to each other using mics, headsets, and their keyboards.

Would be hard to set up?
Not really. I already can run a vent server, with a few changes to settings it will be ready.

Why isn't it already up?
I don't know how many people would use it. It uses up some of my bandwidth, and I don't want to waste it if no one will use it.

Why do we want this?
I've used Ventrilo and Teamspeak (Another VoIP) for years. I've never regretted using either, there's something about talking to someone and actually hearing a voice on the other end. It makes a group much more tight, it's a great experience.

Is it free?
Yes...and no. I can get a free version which allows me to run it off another computer. This version only allows 8 people to connect at a time (As opposed to 64 or more), and uses bandwidth (If I lag, you lag). You can purchase the software, or rent servers for a monthly fee. At the moment I cannot purchase anything, but if someone is interested or wants to split costs, let me know.

Let me know if you have any concerns, go ahead and discuss it!

Well, I've used it and Skype a lot with WOW but don't see the point of using it here. The game is too slow paced to need to quickly relay info. Skype will work well with small groups of people though and its free so I would say use that.

Skype sounds like a good idea, I'll look into it.
I also found out that my IP address changes every few days, which means everyone would have to change their settings accordingly. It'd be a real pain to keep up with it =/

Not of much use for me. Quite a slow game and since I'm on the other side of the world I don't think we'll be only at the same time that much...

Nice idea.
