Ventrilo

Here's a simple guide on how to connect to a ventrilo server. There is no fees, as some of you may think.

First of all, I want you to know that we are not using the latest version of ventrilo, for licensing reasons.

So? Let's start !


1.Download and unzip here: http://www.ventrilo.com/download.php . There is no need to install it, all the program is in one file. And if you have another version of ventrilo, there is no need to uninstall it.


2.After you unzip everything you open ventrilo.exe as shown in the picture below:

Click on it.


You should get this if you have a newer version of ventrilo:

Just click No.


If you dont have any ventrilo program installed on your computer you should see something like this:

3.Click on the "->" infront of "Username:":

Now you get this window:

Put the username you want to appear to people and to identify your self. In the phonetic name put the name you want to people hear when you connect.


4.Now you need to connect to a server.


Click on the "->" in front of servers. In this window:

Press on New put any name you desire and press Ok.


Put the same info as in the picture:

IP address: 150.254.70.99
Port number: 3784


And press Ok


No password is needed for this server.


Now that you've set up all ventrilo to be able to connect to our server, you can finally use it.


Just press on Connect and in couple of seconds you will be connected successfully.


If you have any problems related to this please post in the [URL="http://eurobattle.net/forumdisplay.php?f=18"]Technical Support[/URL] section.

Have fun :)


Note: If you are getting asked to update the version, when you open ventrilo.exe , you can solve it. Go to > Setup > Search for the tab called "Global" > Uncheck the box beside "Check for new version" > And press "Ok" - That's all !


Ventrilo on Linux


You can install Ventrilo under Wine very easily in Ubuntu Linux.

Here is how you can accomplish such a feat. so you can join your friends on a Vent server while gaming or whatever else you may use Ventrilo for.


First: Make sure you have the newest version of Wine setup and installed.

sudo apt-get install wine


Second:


Download Ventrilo for Windows (see Ventrilo above) and install it under Wine.


Third:

Now Vent at default requires the use of an audio codec called GSM 6.10, and from my own experience this codec/driver is not included in WINE right of the bat, so youll have to get the file msgsm32.acm


http://www.ventrilo.com/download.php


, unzip it and place this file in your system32 (/home/USER/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32) directory under Windows in WINE


Fourth: goto the Windows directory (should be /home/USER/.wine/drive_c/windows) and open the file named system.ini and place this line in it under the drivers32 section (for organization sake)


MSACM.msgsm610=msgsm32.acm


Voila! I hope this helps any of you having trouble with getting this working, also make sure to keep an eye out, the guys who develop Vent are working on a Linux client! Enjoy.
