Who here acutally uses the teamspeak servers? Every time I get on any of the teamspeak servers I know of, nobody is ever there. This includes the unityhq one, and the SFI one. (not sure of any others for nolf2....)

TUTORIAL ON TEAMSPEAK

 

 

 

Hi there! I'm Slngsht, and I'll be your guide today!

 

 

 

Today we will be installing and setting up teamspeak for all who are interested in this wonderful tool!

 

 

 

First thing you need to do is download and install the client. You can get it here: ftp://ftp.freenet.de/pub/4players/teamspe...nt_rc2_2032.exe

 

 

 

After you have installed it, when you run the program, you will see the following window:user posted image

 

 

 

What you need to do now, is click "Connection"/ "Connect"

 

 

 

You now see this window (without a server listed)

RIGHT click on "servers" in the "Local Addressbook" tab and select "Add Server." Name it whatever you wish

 

 

 

Enter in the information exactly as you see in the next picture, but replace "SLngsht" with your assigned nickname in both the "nickname" and "login name" slots. Be sure that you enter it in exactly as it was given to you, as it IS CASE SENSITIVE. Most teamspeak server don't require you to be registered, so you can set up the settings to be unregistered.

 

 

(this step is only neccessarry if you are a registered user for a teamspeak server)

Enter your assigned User Password. You are ready to connect to the Teamspeak server. Press "connect" and you should see the following screen:user posted image

 

 

 

 

 

WAIT! You aren't quite ready just yet. Now, you need to adjust your settings. Click on "Settings"/ "Sound Input/Output Settings."

 

 

 

The following is how I have mine set, but you will most likely need to set yours up differently. Just use mine as a basic guideline. Use the "Activate Local Test Mode" button to set it up to the optimal settings. When this is activated, nobody can hear you say "blah blah blah blah, testing one two three" while you get things set up correctly. The green light will light up when the program detects that you are speaking. It should not light up when you are making strong keystrokes, because you may be doing just that while playing a game.

 

 

 

Alternatively, you can set it up where you speak only while pushing an assigned button. This isn't as convenient as voice activation, but is more private.

Tips for making the usage of Teamspeak enjoyable for you and everyone else:

 

 

 

Use headphones, and NEVER USE DESKTOP SPEAKERS!!!!!!!! What happens, is that it causes either bad feedback (which is where your microphone picks up sounds from your speakers, which feeds the signal back to your speakers, back to your microphone, in a continuous loop resulting in a terrible loud whining noise) or everyone connected receives an echo, which can be tolerable for a bit, but very annoying after a while. It is also very difficult to speak when you hear yourself saying the same thing a fraction of a second after you have said it.

yeah, I have mine set up for the sensitivity where it only activates when I practically scream at it. I usually have a LOT of background noise going on.

Then dump the cheap mircophone, and get one with noise reduction laugh.gif

 

I prefer to use voice activation. Nothing more annoying that to:

 

a ) find a button combo that you do not use in any of your games.

b ) Be lucky enough to find this button, and still be able to reach it without rendereing yourself defensless.

c ) Actually remember to push the button, instead of talking to yourself for half and hour and wonder why you are being ignored rolleyes.gif

€70 and you still have that problem??

 

I can have a party at my house, with loud music, friends causing the usual trouble, and my £20 (€30 approx) headset only sends my voice, and none of the background.
