What is Teamspeak?
Teamspeak is a voice chatting utility utilized by many members of eGO. It allows members to talk to each other both in game and outside of DoD. It's quite easy to setup and is a breeze to use.
You know the drill - click "Next" until you're done installing.
Configuring Teamspeak & Connecting to the Server
Launch the Teamspeak client.
You should see a window that looks like this:
Before we connect, let's configure the client a little bit. Click on "Settings > Sound Input/Output Settings." Nearly everyone who uses Teamspeak utilizes the "Push to talk" option. I highly suggest you select this option and bind it to the desired key by clicking on "Set."
You can test your settings by clicking on "Activate local test mode." Hold down the key you just set and your voice will be played back to you in a very poor codec. Make sure you disable the test mode once you are finished.
With the client now configured, we can setup the server list. Click on "Connection > Connect." You should see a window something like this (although blank) ...
Right click anywhere in the big white area and click "Add Server." Fill out the new server details as seen in the following screenshot:
You are going to need the server password to connect. Find it in the eG section of the forums in the stickies.
Click on connect and voila...
You can double click on channel names to switch channels.
Just a few quick notes...
Please be respectful on the Teamspeak server. Keep the language clean if you can help it. Also note that the server can only be used by eGs and up at this time.
