Whoa wait, what?

For the past little bit, a few regulars (myself included) have been running a vent server for ess eee plus plus'ers as an alternative to the official PA ventrilo server. There were shenanigans, and in the end a few of us decided that running our own server would be the best option for talking to the people we knew, on our own terms.

Anyone and everyone is welcome to come chat a bit.


Server Info

SE++: All boners, all the time
32 Slots, $11 a month (donation info available per PM)
Located in Chicago, IL

Server Address: vent7.light-speed.com
Server IP (if the address doesn't work): 208.100.9.252

Server Port:8376

Server status and "who's online" page

Server Admins
Nucsh
Naporeon
Smart_Hero
Sheri
Vivixenne

We're not looking to add anymore, since at least two of us are on most of the time, and we have Viv to take care of the opposite Earth people.


Rules and stuff and blah blah blah

Golden rule of the internet: Don't be a dick. The general rules of the vent server are the same as in SE++ because I'm lazy. I mean, by now this shit should be common sense.

First rule of the server: When in doubt, kick Meissnerd

If you have an issue, PM an admin to kick Meissnerd


Channels

We have chat channels, we have a piping channel, and we have game on stuff. If there's anything you'd like to see, PM me or Naporeon and we'll see what we can do for you. This is your server, if you want it and you'll use it, we'll do it for you. Binds are turned on for chat 2. Game on channels are for games. Etc etc etc etc.


Piping

It's there for a reason.

For piping.


Donation Info

We're renting a 32 slot server at $11 a month. If you're interested in helping float the bill for the server, PM me or Naporeon. If we get enough interest in outside funding, we'll set up a paypal account for us to pay the server bill with.





_______________Edited Info_____________________________________________________________________

Events and Other Fun Things
  • Thursday Nights - Pipe Your Shit Night
    So we all just kind of got on at once and started piping, and everyone had different stuff, and it was awesome. So we're going to try to do it again next week and bring some new/lesser known artists to the table. I'm all about discovering new music, so pipe on.
  • Someone mentioned having a trivia night. If you're interested, PM me ideas and subject material. I'll work to get some content, and we'll whip it out in a few weeks when everyone is available. If you participated in the vent trivia night a few months ago, you'll be familiar with how we'd do it.
So guys

I'm going to be taking an extended break from PA for a while, and I don't want to abandon the vent server.

So.

It's going to be run on a donation basis. If you're interested in throwing money together to keep the server running ($11 a month), go here to make a payment for a month, or three. It's a group pay thing, and I have no idea how it works, but it should at least cover a month. If you're not comfortable with the idea, or you don't want to pay for an entire month, shoot me a PM and I can give you the paypal info for the account I use to pay for the server.

I would pass it off to someone else to manage, but the account with the server company has everything I wouldn't want to give someone on the internet. Orikae's going to take the reigns for modding (whatever that means in a vent server. I just fuck around with TTS), and Nap and SH still have everything.

If there are any problems or questions with the server/situation, shoot me a PM. They get sent to my email, anyway.

Other than that, I'll be around you twisted fucks (<3)

Shoot me an IM

    How to Pipe Music

    Go into Ventrilo setup and uncheck "Use push-to-talk hotkey". This puts you in Sensitivity mode. Then change the Sensitivity value to 0, which will make your client constantly transmit.

    Check that your "input device" and "output device" are both set to "Default DirectSound device", and make sure that the "use DirectSound" option is checked for both of these.

    Under "Mixer" you should have your sound card or onboard sound device selected. It probably already is, but just make sure. If you don't know what it is, just pick something that looks like the name of a sound card or onboard sound device, because that's probably right. (you shouldn't ever have to change this)

    Under "Mux" you should have "recording control" selected. (you shouldn't ever have to change this either)

    Under "Line", you most likely have "Microphone" selected if you've been using Ventrilo normally. To have others hear every noise that your computer makes, search for a setting like "Stereo Mix", "Wave Out", "Wave Out Mix", or something along those lines--it will differ depending on what sound card or sound device your computer uses. When you select the right setting, Ventrilo will now transmit everything your computer outputs to others in the same channel as you.

    Close the Ventrilo setup window and click "Mute Sound" in the bottom left of the main Ventrilo window--this means you won't be able to hear anything anyone says in the same channel as you, but you don't want to.

    Once you have the correct setup, hop into a piping channel of your choice and open whatever you use to paly music. Keep in mind that you may need to adjust your volume settings (your Ventrilo outbound setting or your music player volume) so that people get the best listening experience.

    When you're done piping, do the following:

    --uncheck "Mute Sound" in the main window

    --open the Setup window, check "Use push-to-talk hotkey", and change your Line setting back to "Microphone" (you can safely leave your Sensitivity value at 0 as long as you only use Sensitivity mode when you pipe music)



    Piping: Mac Version

    Piping music through vent on a Mac is entirely different than it is on a PC, as most have noticed by now. There is no built in option to pipe within the Mac prototype. HOWEVER, there is hope. There is a program/plugin out there called SoundFlower (http://www.cycling74.com/downloads/soundflower) that tricks Ventrilo into thinking that the plugin is a dedicated input device, much like it would register your built in mic or in-line mic. What soundflower does is then takes whatever is playing on your computer, and reroutes it from the speakers in to Ventrilo.

    To pipe music on a Mac...:

    1) Download SoundFlower
    2) Install SoundFlower
    3) Go to System Preferences
    4) Go to Sound
    5) Select Soundflower(2ch) as your output device
    6) Open Ventrilo, and under 'setup', select SoundFlower(2ch) as the input device
    7) Unselect 'Use Push-To-Talk Hotkey'
    8) Change silence time to 0.5 seconds
    9) Change sensitivity to 1
    10) Enter the Pipe Channel and flip on the tunes

    That's basically it, HOWEVER, you will not be able to hear what is being piped. To hear what you're piping, you need another program, SoundFlowerBed (http://www.cycling74.com/downloads/soundflower). This is an actual program, and needs to be opened. Once all settings are set and selected for Soundflower, you need to open Soundflowerbed. After opening Soundflowerbed, you should notice a flower shaped Epaulet (those little icons next to your system clock, i.e. volume meter or battery meter) appears. Click it. Scroll down under 'Soundflower (2ch)' and select 'Built-in Audio' (or whatever device you wish to route your music to on YOUR end) as your output.

    There you go, if you or the vent community isn't hearing what's coming through, feel free to send me a PM or try to catch me on AIM.

    Recommended volume settings (based on iTunes)

    1) Set iTunes volume (not system volume) at 50%
    2) Set output amplify within Ventrilo @ 2 (however, if it becomes too loud or distorted, move the amplification slider back to 0)
    3) Adjust system volume to put volume on your end to your liking.


    (Note: When done piping, be sure to exit Soundflowerbed and to reset all of your system settings. Go back to System Preferences and reselect your output device as 'built-in audio'.)

    In the Scraper blowin purple gone off the liquor
    Have to wait at the bus stop to ride the yellow bus now
    I�m the first Mexican to ride the yellow bus
    Fillin up my cup full chug-a-lugin on that hyphy juice
    Remy XO and a couple of the red bulls

    We should totally make this Saturday night a vent server christening night for SE and we should all saddle up at a decided time with booze and microphones and just go nuts.
