IMPORTANT:

If you are joining our TeamSpeak-Server, please take care of your background noises. Your virtual green LED should only light up while you are talking. If something on your end is causing noises, then please mute your microphone to avoid disturbing other users.

 

DESCRIPTION:

TeamSpeak' is a proprietary Voice over IP software that allows users to speak on a chat channel with other users, much like a telephone conference call. A TeamSpeak user will often wear a headset with an integrated microphone. Users use the TeamSpeak client software to connect to a TeamSpeak server of their choice, from there they can join chat channels. The target audience for TeamSpeak are gamers, who can use the software to communicate with other players on the same team of a multiplayer game. Communicating by voice gives a competitive advantage by allowing players to keep their hands on the controls. Currently there is no stable Mac OS X version available, although TeamSpeex is a viable alternative.

 
 
HOW TO DOWNLOAD TEAMSPEAK?

Please visit the provider's website ( http://teamspeak.com/ ). You will find the Client-Software (Client 2.0.32.60) under 'Downloads' in 'File Archive'. 

 

HOW TO INSTALL TEAMSPEAK?

  •  Install the 'TeamSpeak'-Client (including it's codecs, of course) and run it!
  •  

  • Click on Connection > Connect in the menu bar of TeamSpeak. (We use and recommend using 'Connect' instead of 'Quick Connect', because you can set up several connection profiles there).
  • Inside the 'Connect To Server'-Window in the 'Local Addressbook'-Area choose 'Add Server' in the context menu that you will get by right-clicking in an empty area of the 'Local Addressbook', and name/label the server (for example: '[NewNet]').
  • After you've typed in the name and hit enter, you should have a screen similar to the picture below:

Now enter the 'Server Address' of our TeamSpeak-Server 213.133.97.217:9000, enter your 'Nickname', make sure that it's set on 'Anonymous' instead of 'Registered' and enter the 'Server Password': newnet

After you have entered all necessary data click the 'Connect'-Button and you should get connected to the TeamSpeak-Server of the NewNet. 

 

NOTE:

If you've connected successfully you should completely exit TeamSpeak one time and start it up again to save your connection profile, otherwise if you shut down your system without exiting TeamSpeak properly the data of the connection profile will be lost. You can enter a channel by double-clicking on it with the left mouse-button.

 

MICROPHONE BOOST:

Most microphones are in general very quiet, because of this it is helpful to activate your microphone boost. The procedure to do this differs from system to system, so we are sorry that we can not provide any specific information here.

 

VOICE ACTIVATION LEVEL:

The 'Voice activation level' represents the sensitivity of your microphone. In the menu bar of 'TeamSpeak' click on 'Settings' > 'Sound Input/Output Settings' to get to the necessary window to configure it.

If you are already connected to a TeamSpeak server just drag the configuration window to one side to be able to see the green virtual LED in front of your nickname. If you aren't  connected just set the 'Test Codec' in the 'Local Test'-Area on 'Speex 25.9 KBit' and hit the 'Activate local test mode'-Button.

Now try to talk and take a look at the green virtual LED, it should light up if you are talking and should turn off again when you aren't. If your microphone input is too quiet just move the 'Voice activation level'-adjuster more to 'whisper', otherwise the other way around, of course. We'd recommend configuring it so that it turns on immediately when (or shortly before) you start talking and turns off again approximately 300 - 400 ms after you've stopped talking.

If you found the proper configuration just click the 'Close'-Button!
 
We are still using 'TeamSpeak 2' instead of

'TeamSpeak 3'. We've decided that it has the best

resource-usage/efficiency-relation for our purposes.
