Warning: Version 1.2.1 of Mumble available for download. However this is not the one that you need, as it will not talk to our current server, version 1.1.8. Please make sure you download version 1.1.8!
With our members scattered all around the world, and phone price rates through the roof for international calls, RitterWolf came to the conclusion that it would be a good idea for the UJvians to keep in touch via a private voice chat server. So we got one! All you have to do is download the Mumble client from the source page above, and install it to your computer and BAM! there you have a free connection to all the other UJvians around the world. It works in very much the same way as Ventrillo or Team Speak but is free and a lot more customizable. With said customizabillity, I created a skin for it.
Ritterwolf: Hello my children,
I have set up a new toy for us to play with. It’s a Mumble server, which does the same as Ventrillo/Teamspeak, but without those pesky licencing issues. The quality is better too.
1. Head to http://mumble.sourceforge.net/ and download the client for your platform. Linux users should be able to get it from apt/yum/urpmi/whatever…
2. After downloading, run the installer using the defaults.
The first time you run the program, you will get an audio tuning wizard. Follow it carefully.
After the wizard is completed, you can connect.
1. Choose Server -> Connect, and pick the custom servers tab.
2. In label, put whatever you want.
3. In Address, put moo.ultima-java.com
4. Make sure port says 64738
5. Set username to be whatever you want to appear as
6. Leave password blank
7. Press add
You should now be connected.
Setting up Push-to-Talk
1. In the Configure menu, pick Settings.
2. Go to the Audio Input tab
3. Change the Transmit drop down to say Push to Talk
4. Pick the Shortcuts tab
5. Click the Add button
6. Double-click the row for the new Shortcut, in the function column
7. Select Push to Talk
8. Double click the Shortcut column
9. Press the button you want for Push to Talk
10. If you don’t want any programs to receive that keypress while Mumble is running, tick Suppress
Skin Installation and Activation
Once you’ve downloaded this and extracted it, copy the whole “skins”
folder into the mumble folder.
If in future you have any other skins for mumble, you can place them in the
skins folder unless the skin’s installation says otherwise. UJ skins may
get updates in future, to install the new skins, simply delete the old
skin and copy and past the new skin in.
To activate the skin on vista, and I can’t see it being too different on other platforms, but please let me know if it is, open Mumble and go to:
Configure -> Settings -> User Interface
That tab should give you a text field calld “skin” simply use the brows to find the file “main.qss” in the uj mumble skin folder. Click apply and ok, and restart Mumble. You don’t have to restart Mumble, but some of the images won’t show up until you do.
If there are any other issues, like the installation is different or activation of a skin is different on different platforms, of if you are generally having trouble, feel free to leave a comment here or on the forum in the appropriate thread.
