A Teamspeak server! So that we can all talk to each other, does anyone here think it would be a fantastic experiance? So many of us are from other countries it would be kinda like a cultural exchange experiance, who here agrees?

It exists already. There's the AIM Hatrack Chat room; there's also the 'Chat' option in the menu above.

I think sid is speaking more of something like Ventrilo, where people can actually speak to one another. With like their voices rather than their keyboards.

And some people don't have instant messenger......

Would people who don't have instant messenger be interested in Teamspeak?
Posted by Sid Meier (Member # 6965) on :
all it requires is a mike...
Posted by TrapperKeeper (Member # 7680) on :
it requires someone to host the server, and that usually costs like 5-15 dollars a month.

Then it can be passworded and invididuals need the program and the IP to join it.

Its not difficult once you get it going, but does have a small learning curve.

I have access to a couple Ventrilo servers, but they are private so I cant just start giving IPs here

actually I don't think TS requires a server I think i could do it from my own computer, or just set up the P2 we have collecting dust and use that, I'ld be willing to host it I'm trying to figure out how at this moment.

I don't have much experience with TS. I always liked Ventrilo better.
Posted by Sid Meier (Member # 6965) on :
TS seems really simple and Ventrilo seems really complicated. Just that I already figured out how ot host a server. Now I'm figuring out how ot make a channel.

Actually teamspeak hosts servers that can be used by anyone for free; like a chat room, all you need to do is go to their website, find the server you want to get onto, then create 'a room'. You can password the room and then give that password only to the people you want.

At least, that's how it was back in the day ...
Posted by Rackham (Member # 8127) on :
great idea sid. i use ts all the time for call of duty.

it would be a change from all this typing.
Posted by Sid Meier (Member # 6965) on :
So, who should host the server? is my server though I probly won't be on it all that often since I hang out with friends of mine on another server. Come and visit if anyone of you wish too.
