Title: TeamSpeak problems
Post by: rooshooter on November 10, 2017, 11:50:48 AM
We seem to be having more and more problems with TS, should we try Discord (if someone can workout how to use it)?
Is running a Discord server a big system overhead?
Should we try Gamevox (easy to use) how much does it cost(I am willing to contribute).

Gamevox is closing down,

Valued Gamers,
It is with a heavy heart that we are announcing the closing of GameVox December 1st, 2017. Using feedback from existing software, our team put forward tremendous effort to bring you a better group voice experience.
We attempted to adapt to an ever-changing voice market. However, due to lack of funding and free alternatives we are not able to continue development and service for GameVox users.

 discord is easy, way more simple than TS to get working,  and what most gamers use these days so I presume low overheads

That is sad, what do you think Phil, should we change?

I am easy, I have a discord server ready to go if people want to become familiar with it and at least have it working in case TS goes down again, which it will at some point
https://discord.gg/y3JFBu

When you first start Discord you have to click the round circle which has the first letter of the server name being K for krahl on the far left, then you can see  the channel available to join next to it

another good thing about discord is its a handy way to be able to stay in touch if the website ever goes down, sorta like a messenger app as well as a talky app :)

Thanks Phil, I think we should all have this ready as a backup plan.

I reckon it'd be a good idea to migrate to discord, TS has not been playing nice and having something else as backup isn't working too well - people don't install it.

So move over to discord officially & leave TS as backup is my vote.

My only issue with Discord is that I can't bind keys for Increase an Decrease volume like I have on TS.

Phil can we use your Discord server for Tuesdays? How does the server work - is there a fee? What's the capacity?
Title: Re: TeamSpeak problems
Post by: Phil.8 on November 10, 2017, 02:37:40 PM
Sure you can use it, I think can hold like 1000s of people in a server, must be a lot because twitch channels have 1000s in them,   its free anyone can make one

Tuesday night races are the only thing I have teamspeak installed for. All other communities I'm involved in have moved over to Discord.

Let's start using it on Thursdays straight away. Then Tuesday can migrate over over once we sort out any kinks.

Same, same.

But I'm thinking you guys go other places, whereas this is my only hangout, so that's why I have TS. :-[
 :P

Discord was much clearer as well, or Phil was (no-one else was on).

I have noticed a lot of people still need to sign in to Discord, using Wally's perma XGN link :) It would be good to go live with Discord next Thursday.

I think some of the Thursday racers rarely view the forums(Imperious is one) and I thought we could use Teamspeak tonight to tell everybody that we are going to Discord next week.

Excuse my ignorance, but I take it we download Discord from their website and install, then go onto Wally's invite link ? Is this correct?  Dave O.

Correct, keep in mind there is no way to check mic or spkr volume levels.

You just can’t test them without joining a real voice session.
