Vent payment

Postby Darkfoxx » Wed Sep 22, 2010 7:46 am

Apparently our Vent server just auto-renewed itself, so if it's not too much to ask...I'd appreciate it if peeps threw in like $5 to the Paypal for the server. It was $53.95 total for the year.

I considered it, but it's more expensive. I'm getting a really good deal on this vent right now.

what's killer about it? i've never liked TS, even when it was like the only protocol in town.

well, first off it doesnt look like hell anymore. its pretty easy to get used to, when i was connecting to flumpsters' guilds teamspeak it took me about 5 seconds to figure out how to connect.
the layout is really simple, and there are some neat features. one of the biggest i noticed: its kinda like they put an irc on the top of the voip channels, the channels you are in are also channels that you can type into, so you can send global messages to the server, or to your channel and whatnot. there is an uploading thing thats pretty neat, where you can upload files temporarily to the teamspeak itself for people to grab. you can connect to multiple servers at the same time and listen to both of them (you can still only talk into one at a time, but thats common sense...)
theres some other stuff, but i dont have it open right now, so i dont really remember.

i was looking into it and it looks pretty sweet. youve always been able to text chat in TS. it was one of the things i missed when everyone in the gaming world moved to vent. the new GUI looks promising. i HATED TS2's. multiple servers woulda been AWESOME during my MMO days. woulda been great to idle/see my clan's voip server while talking in the server for the group im in and also being able to check out other servers for PVP groups and shit. you can sorta do that now with vent by forcing open 2 vents at once, but it's not the same.

i dont think i would piss and moan being forced to use TS3. if i had a reason to use it it would prolly be decent.

Shit comes down to money, IMO.

If I'm able to get 15 slots of TS3 cheaper, would you guys be opposed to switching? This is also contingent if I can get my money back from NFO for the Vent server that just auto-renewed (goddamnit, why do they do that?).

We could also test out TS3. I think the server program is free and I could throw it up on my VPS tonight.

i'd wanna test it 1st. they should have a free version but it's also free for "non-profits". why wouldnt we qualify, unless they require official NPO paperwork?

if youre serious about swapping, get some prices and if they're the same/cheaper then set up a test server if possible for us to try.

i know they also used an official server host bullshit system like vent and dont think that's changed with 3.

Yeah I'm installing ts3 on my server atm. I'll have us test it later on. I'd host it permanently, but I don't know how much longer I'll have the server...

Going to stick with Vent for now.

Still need another $10 - $15 and I'll cover the rest.
