This is kinda on/off topic, but more on topic than not.

One month before ETW's release I will have a 100 man ventrilo server setup for Heaven Games ETW players. I will be giving admin to a few selected forumers whom I know well, and everyone else is MORE than welcome to use it for clan matches/friendly skirmishes or to just hang out.

(Location will be seattle washington, hi-def T3)

I'll be posting the info up soon. Ciau!

What version will you be using? I might sent a few CoH players your way when it gets up.

I take it E:TW won't have a VOIP system.

My accent is going to annoy people, like it did when I was in England

LOL

According to people from Surrey (southern England), the two do actually sound similar.

Anyway, Daelon, for people who don't have microphones (such as Andalus, who likely won't have one since his computer can't run ETW ) could you suggest a few cheap ones?

Go to newegg.com, I think they can ship internationally. With headphones, you get what you paid for. My current sound system is $470, I have Senhauser HD 555's with a JD Audio equalizer... So you'll probably find some logitech headset, but in this case it will serve you just fine.

Yeah, should be good. You wont need any drivers or anything for these kind of headsets.

To be entirely honest, I don't see why we need ventrilo. Steam contains chat facilties and also a VOIP facility.

LOL. Steam's voip is a joke. Capped bandwith, terrible codec, and terrible stability with huge memory leaks when playing certain games.

Ventrilo runs on 64-bit codecs with this server using Hi-Def bandwith connections @ the T3 speed. It would be stupid to not use it.

Thus is bold! Teamspeak is one of the oldest voice communication programs, however it's in dire need of codec upgrades (server side).
