Voice comms and you

If you don’t already have it, get the latest version of Teamspeak 3 from the website, and install it. The connection address is: server.folkarps.com:9988 (note: the domain and port go together). The password is ‘freedom’.

For the session, you're going to start with "Limbo (Slotting/Dead)". When you've just arrived, hang out there. When the mission starts, everyone will move to the appropriate side channel family (BLUFOR/OPFOR/INDFOR). Further channel split will be handled by the CO. When the mission ends (either for everyone or just for you) return to Limbo, and wait for the next mission.

Channel Commander

CC is a TeamSpeak feature that lets you talk to people "over the fence" of your channel. It is not mandatory, but it can sometimes prove useful to have it set up. The setup we use is pretty straightforward:

  • In TS3 go to Tools > Whisper Lists (Ctrl+Shift+W)
  • Click on New (in the bottom-left of the dialog)
  • Set a Hotkey (the suggestion is: H)
  • Set Whisper to: to Groups
  • Set Group Whisper Type: to Channel Commander
  • Set Group Whisper Target: to Complete Channel Family
  • Click OK

And you're set. To turn CC on/off, either right-click your name in the playerlist and select Channel Commander, or set-up a hotkey (or combination, such as Shift+H):

  • TS3 > Settings > Options (Alt+P) > Hotkeys > Add
  • In the dialogue that pops-up click on Show Advanced Options
  • Under the action Channel Commander select Toggle Channel Commander
  • Set a hotkey or hotkey combination (the suggestion is Shift+H)
  • Click OK, then click OK again to exit the Options dialogue

Optional TeamSpeak 3 Addons
