so, there's approx. 2 weeks sub left on the current one (that's dogged with DDOS attacks).

let's discuss providers, maybe even different software.

it's outfit members money that pays for voice comms so please offer suggestions here.

I have a 50 slot server already that doesn't seem to have any problems. We can use that if you like.

I know very little about voice providers so I can't give any advice. If faith has a good stable one, why not switch and try it out? Let us know if we need to chip in for the cost!

Bet it's the TR zerg outfits that are DDOS'ing us because we ruin all their plans
Have we thought about using mumble?

Mumble is my favorite voice software, for what it's worth. I'm sure there's Ventrilo zealots and TeamSpeak adherents here, too. Mumble's biggest perk is that it "just works" - no need (or option) for setting volumes individually. Though TeamSpeak got a lot better with that in the last years.... Has a nice overlay that can be modified too. That, at least, is much better than the TeamSpeak one.

Also, Mumble is notoriously cheap. If interest exists, I guess I'd recommend http://www.verygames.co.uk. I used that for my WoW guild, we never had downtime.

I run my own TS server on an old laptop of mine for my family (an old P4 1.8Ghz w/1.5GB of RAM and a 8GB CF card for a HD as it's original [IDE] HD died).

If someone in a good location (IE, not in the US... has cheap power, a halfway decent old machine they're not using anymore, setting up the Linux TS server is pretty simple (and free), if you don't want to change clients. The default license is for 32 slots, but (the last time I checked) you can get a free license from TS for more slots for a self-hosted gaming clan server.

Otherwise I think setting up a mumble server is even easier in Linux, as it'd be in a number of distro's repositories. Ubuntu 13.04's version is slightly out of date, but take your pick of distros as others may have a newer build available.

in relation to people's generous offers of free TS (thanks very much), I'd rather us stick to a dedicated hosted server that can be the home of FC. Reignman can customise it and it won't be affected by anyone "taking their bat and ball home" or "getting skint", or death/war/maimings etc that are unlikely to happen.
I'm not saying that about anyone, just risk reduction ,and I'm still sat on quite a bit of outfit money

IMO:
Ventrillo was the daddy of quality, TS3 has caught it up.
TS3 everyone has the client and set up.
Mumble cheap as chips, we could plump for a 100 slot server for next to nowt.

My best experiences have been with Mumble. Never been on a mumble server that has had issues and I like the quality of sounds and the built-in functions. So for whatever it's worth, mumble is my pick.

I'd prefer to stick with TS3. I find the updates are better supported and TS3 is more well known among gamers making voice services easier for any new recruits we get along the way. Its also got some new kick ass overlays

Whichever software you decide to use, I'd be more than happy to help with the server expenses. So let me know if you need money for a new server or something.

If you are to change software now would be the time to do it. I don't see much difference between the major competitors.

However, since the last time I played PS2 and its outrage game volume difference (at least for me) one that automatically reduces game output whilst coms are active would be a god send.

I know TS supposed to or does but it ends up just fucking up all my sound.

Definitely agree with this.

Not sure about new software and/or server providers, but keeping a close eye onthis topic as it affects us all.

Found a plugin for TS that reduces other system sound to a predfined sound for a period when you speak or other speak.

Windows only, and possibly windows 7 only. It works for me.

ok so one week to go.
from flicking through the thread, TS3 seems most favourable, with a bit of interest for Mumble.

so in sticking with the theme, does anyone have any suggestions on good hosts for a TS3 server ? even through the grapevine ?

cheers
