Ok, here it is again, the all new Legacy of the Void teamspeak server! Now with admin passwords I'll remember!
Ok, for any of you who don't know, you can get teamspeak at www.goteamspeak.com/. You'll want to grab the TS2 Client (Windows version, unless you're doing something really peculiar).
The server is running at lotv.homeip.net on port 28767, to make it quick and easy, just go to Quick Connect in the client and put lotv.homeip.net:28767 in the server address field.
The server will be up 24/7 with a current user limit of 16. I can't see us really using more than that at the moment anyway. Should you try to connect and find the server is down, let me know. If I'm not playing WoW, try to contact me by MSN, AIM, or ICQ. If all of those show me as offline, then there are bigger problems afoot.
edit: When you connect, for god's sake enter a nickname. I can't tell who all these "Guest1" people are, and it takes me ages to learn all your voices.
edit2: Ok, by "a nickname" I mean the name you go by in WoW.

I typically check TS when I see that other guildies that have TS are on... like Rayfrost, Vith, ... uh... Neph I think, and at least one other person I see occasionally.
I'm trying to get better at loggin onto TS everytime I log onto WoW, but sometimes it's just a different way of saying "hey"... although I must also say that when we did SM without a healer, 3 of us were on TS... (Ray, me, Hazel (g/f)).
First, to bump this topic so new people will see it.
Second, some people seem to have trouble getting things set up, so I will go over some things.
First of all, you want to make sure that your microphone is selected as your sound input device, this is done here in your volume mixer. Easiest way to get there is to double click the little speaker icon most people seem to have on the taskbar. Go to Options, Preferences, then select Recording and hit OK. Make sure that microphone is the one checked on this screen, also, if you have problems with your mic being really quiet, click advanced underneath the volume slider and turn on the +20db boost.
Once that's done, in the Teamspeak client itself, go to Settings, Sound Input/Output Settings. Once there, pick your preferred activation method, voice activated, or push to talk. If you're going to use push to talk, pick a key and you're done. If you use voice activation, whic most of us do, you'll want to fine tune the activation level. Choose a codec (the general channel on the server uses GSM 16.4kbit, but it doesn't really matter here) and activate local test mode. With local test on, you want the green light next to the button to light up whenever you talk, but only when you talk. Also make sure it stays steadily lit as long as you continue to talk. If it doesn't, adjust the activation level up or down until it does. When you're in test mode, it will echo back at you what you are saying, so you can see how you're going to sound to other people. If the beginnings or ends of words get cut off, lower the activation level slightly.
I think that's it. I know most of the people who use TS now have pretty good settings, so you can all help anyone new who comes along.
PPl get Teamspeak, at least all the Warmasters for sake of not having to whisper all the time and use officer chat to talk about guildies behind there backs . Me and Dime now have it so....and one of us is almsot always on.

Someday, I'm going to have to get you on the phone or something and help my try to get my own TS server running, for when yours goes down. It seems that the last couple of times I've wanted to use it, it's down.... not your fault, though - computers can suck that way.
My problem right now is that I can't seem to get through the firewall, unless I completely open my comp to the Internet (don't like doing that).
Other issue: what if I want to run TWO TS connections to your server from the same Internet connection? Is such a thing possible? So far, I haven't succeeded.
As far as I know there should be no problems with connecting twice to one TS server... I know that I have done so before back in my BF1942 days... can both clients connect independantly of each other? I'd suspect that there is some other problem on that end... but who knows?
As for running a TS server behind a firewall... mine listens on TCP ports 14534 and 51234, as well as UDP port 8767. I don't actually know what it uses those TCP ports for.. but whatever, it's listening on them. Hope that helps.
edit: Also, just did something I should done *ages* ago. The teamspeak server is now in my startup group, so I don't ever have to worry about starting it manually again.
