    Mumble > Ventrilo - Give it a shot!

    What is Mumble?

    Mumble is a voice-chat program similar Ventrilo.

    Why is Mumble better than Ventrilo?

    Latency - Non existent. When testing with Curb whose crashing at my place lately we can normally hear the delay in Vent if we say something loudly and the game has gone quiet in HoN by first hearing him from the other room then later on Vent. Very nearly instant with Mumble.

    Positional Audio - What this means is with certain supported games (TF2, World of Warcraft, L4D2, etc.) you'll actually hear people talk based on their position. If I'm to your right in Left 4 Dead and I say something, it will actually sound like I'm to your right when I transmit. If I'm behind you in World of Warcraft and I say I need a heal, you'll know where to look, because you'll hear me behind you. haven't tested this yet... but it sounds fucking awesome

    Normalization - Mumble has normalization built in, everyone's the same volume (I haven't tested this).


    How do I get it / how do I set it up?

    -You can download Mumble here (Get the stable version)

    -Installation is pretty self-explanatory, just run the audio wizard and follow the instructions.

    But, the best part is, it's OPEN SOURCE! So I put up a 100 user server on one of my boxes sitting on a fiber network... plenty of bandwidth so invite whoever. If you need admins, get a hold of me.

    Server info:
    207.135.142.85(soon to be: mumble.xclan.org)
    Default port: 64738
    No password (but if I add one it will be the same as vent)

    That's what I am being told... tried my buddies server last night and he told me about it. Put up a server of my own today for x and plan to really test it tonight.

    it will crash your shit a little. atm its still a little unstable methinks. never an os crash yet but definatley game crashes. voice is sometimes bunk too until you restart. this could be all be user specific you say but its not. all this is a small price to pay for FREE!!

    If that actually works thats really cool, might as well give it a shot if it's free. Is there a list of games that support the positional feature? Any idea on Battlefield Bad Company 2 since it looks like a lot of us are going to be playing it.

    thx cazter for letting us borrow your server last nite. i like it, the positional audio thing is trippy, and the in game overlay is cool. and the sound quality, is comparable to the more expensive ventrilo servers.

    Maybe post a question to the supersmart guys here on the forums, the would help you get to the bottom of it.

    Weird thing is in game chat (hon chat) it sounds fine, and is not buggy. Just with Vent and mumble...wonder what is up with that. Got to be a setting somewhere
