Sauerleague - Ogros

#ogros @ irc.gamesurge.net

 

What you might want to test is to talk to other players while playing. This a real fun, and best of all its completely FREE and just a matter of minutes if you got a headset (or headphones and a mic in your computer).

This is a complete Walkthrough-Guide for our public Mumble channel made under OS X, but almost all the steps are exactly the same under WINDOWS and GNOME/KDE (linux).

For Mac users: your mac has a built in mic, which works just fine. just plug in some headphones and start. Many newer PC-Computers do as well. All others: get a cheap headset for 5-10 Dollars/Euro.

    If you don't have already - create a server account on our homepage http://ogros.org (in the left menu: "Server Registration"). the account also works for our mumble server.just enter the required data, and wait for the reply. it may take some hours as this has to be checked and approved by one of our admins (spam prevention).

    Drag and drop the Mumble icon onto the Applications Icon.

  4. Go to your Applications Folder and start Mumble by double-clicking on it.

    alt

    Press "yes" and "continue".

  5. On the first setting-screen use the default audio drivers if you are unsure. you may switch on echo-cancellation (to reduce echos, especially if your heaphones/hedset emmit a lot of noise or you are semi-deaf and they are very loud nevertheless). Check "enable positional audio if you want to hear other players in-game from the direction they are in-game.

  6. Turn down the ms-value to 20. you still need to hear the described sound.

    alt

  7. Go to your sound tab (Mac: hit the apple in the upper left corner of your SCREEN > System Preferences > Sound) and turn up the input volume...

    alt

    ..as much as necessary as described on the next screen. in my case this meant turning it to maximum.

    alt

  8. Just follow the instructions on the next screen

    alt

  9. The next screen is the Login-screen. Enter the name and password as provided by Ogros. the server is ogros.org leave the port as is. Then hit ADD first so the stuff gets saved as a profile and then CONNECT.

    alt

  10. doubleclick on the Channel "Lobby" to talk to the others. If this does not work, drag and drop yourself to the Lobby. And if even that should not work, ask someone to drag you into the Lobby (via IRC or elsewhere).

    alt

  11. If you want your own channel for your clan, talk to us in IRC. We will open up a channel and explain to one of you (your leader) how he can give the priviliges to all other members, remove them, etc so you can do everything further on your own.
