UNOFFICIAL Dedicated Mumble Chat Server

Recommended Posts

After a rigorous stress test (i.e. pcktlnt and myself) I am happy to announce there is 24/7 voice (and text) chat server available for Reaper forumites. It utilizes the free open source software Mumble. Mumble combines a very light weight voice chat with text chat for free with no ads or other junk. It can be found here: http://mumble.sourceforge.net/ If you want to use the voice functions you'll need a mic.

 

Tips

  • Make sure your mic, headphones etc are plugged in and recognized by your computer before you start Mumble.
  • You can set up nicknames for Chat channels so if your Reaper forum name is taken don't worry you can still make it display in the chat room.
  • Once you start Mumble, run through the setup wizard. If all your hardware is installed properly it should adjust all your settings so you can be heard and hear.
  • DO NOT USE the always on option for your mic.
  • If you are not using headphones, plan on having background noise, or like to sing to yourself while you paint, use the "push to talk option. See ReaperBryan's post on why no singing here
  • If you don't have a mic you can still listen and use the text chat.
  • If you want to provide video I suggest using some sort of livestream service like Twitch.tv

I've found something called eternitycraft.dyndns.org... I can't find a spot for a password.

 

It says:

eternitycraft.dyndns.org

Any advice from there?

No idea what that is. 

 

Did you download Mumble and install it? If you haven't you'll have to download it from the link in the first post. 

 

Once it is installed you'll want to make a new connection. It will ask you for all the info I listed in the first post.

I will get all up on this over the weekend, though I'll be working on Darkraven stuff rather than painting.

      HIIIII ...!
      So, someone opened a FLGS someplace where I don't have to fight my way through stupid to get to it, and they have space and interest in hosting painting days! YUS!
       
      All I need is some more interested people and some dates/times when they can come down and paint.
      My schedule is generally flexible. Weekends alternate (this is a 'free' weekend. Next, I expect to be gaming. And so on).
       
      South Hill Games is the intended gathering point. They have a Bookface presence, but their real website isn't up yet (.. and I'm not sure I am allowed to link it when it is). Go forth and Google. Once I have some tentative dates and interested parties, I will ping them via Bookface and see which can be best fit in.

      Hi there everyone! Oakydeer here, and I'm a very very new to the world of tabletop RPGS. I'd always heard of the magical game dungeons and dragons but was always intimidated by it and didn't know when or how to start.

       

      But a month ago, I decided to take the plunge and gather my friends for our first DnD session, with me as the DM. And... we all became obsessed. So now, here I am, completelly engrossed in the world of tabletop RPGs and eager to start sculpting and painting my own figures!

       

      I'm open to any advice from any of you wonderful veterans regarding anything, be it painting and sculpting, to game tips, to a simple friendly hello. Let's be friends! :>

      I want to give a big shout-out to Mad Jack for sending me the tiniest hedgehog mini i have ever seen. For those of you who joined us at the last paint-day, you know that the little mini enticed a squeak out of me at its adorableness. I just think it's so sweet that he painted and sent me the finished hedgehog. Thank you so muck Mad Jack.

      So maxstyles suggested a 24 hour painting marathon over here. One of the suggestions was to have some kind of voice chat. Since Skype only allows 10 people on a video conference and and is a system resource hog, I offered my Mumble server for use and suggested livestreaming for anyone who wants to have video. 
       
      Tomorrow I'll be setting up everything for a practice/stress test. I'll be posting more details here as I get things set up. 
      I plan on having everything up at 12AM UTC Thats:
      5pm PDT
      6pm MDT
      7pm CDT
      8pm EDT
      9pm ADT (Buglips Daylight Time)
