Next Step, Setting Up Ventrilo
Ok First Open Up Ventrilo By Double Clicking The Icon That The Green Arrow is Pointing To. Then You Should Have A Box Pop Up That Looks Like My ScreenShot Below. Notice Where The Green Arrow is Pointing. Yes That Is My Desktop Background..
Click The Little Boxed Arrow Button That The Red Arrow is Pointing To.
Alrighty, Click on the New Button That The Red Arrow is Pointing To.
Now It Is Time To Enter A Name That You Will Be Called On Ventrilo. May I suggest, Keeping It Either Your Real Name or Your Game name in Counterstrike So We Know Who You Are And Don't Accidently Kick You. Enter Your Name In The Box That The Red Arrow is Pointing To, Then Click the OK Button That The Green Arrow is Pointing To.
Make Sure In The Name Box Where The Red Arrow is Pointing, That The Name You Made Is Selected, Then Click The OK Button Where The Green Arrow is Pointing.
Ok Now, Making Sure Your Name You Created is Selected in The User Name Box Where The Red Arrow is Pointing, Go Ahead and Click The Little Arrow in The Box Where The Green Arrow is Pointing.
Click The New Button As Illustrated By Mr. Handy Dandy Red Arrow.
Enter -[OS]- Clan Server or Whatever You Want In the Box That the RedArrow is Pointing To. Then Click The Ok Button That The Green Arrow is Pointing To.
Ok Listen Closely And Refer To The Picture Below On This One. Make Sure In the Box That The Red Arrow is Pointing To That -[OS]- Clan Server Is Selected. Inside Of The "Hostname or IP Box" Where The Green Arrow is Pointing, Type: voice.clanservers.com
In The Port Number Box Where The Blue Arrow is Pointing, Type: 9598
Leave Everything In The Blue Boxed Area Alone. Dont Mess With It!
You Shouldn't Need a Password For The Box That The Yellow Arrow is Pointing To. (Usually it is Set To Require A Password For Admins of The Ventrilo Server Only, If You Are an Admin or Should Be Contact Me For A Password To Enter In This Section)
Leave Everything Else Alone Unless You Know What you Are Doing, Then Click The OK Button That The Orange Arrow Is Pointing To<.h5>
Whew Glad That One Is Over Heh
Make Sure Your User Name is Selected in The User Name Section (If It Is Not, Click The Small Arrow That Is Pointing DOWN Next To The User Name Box To Select It).(Where The Red Arrow Is Pointing).
Make Sure The -[OS]- Clan Server Is Selected in The Server Section (If It Is Not, Click The Small Arrow That Is Pointing DOWN Next To The Server Box To Select It). (Where The Green Arrow Is Pointing).
Now, Click The Connect Button That TheBlue Arrow Is Pointing.
Click on The Setup Button That The Red Arrow Is Pointing To.
Oh My .. ok Stay With Me. Basically Everything That You See 'Should' Be Like Mine In The Picture. The Two Sections That The Blue and Orange Arrows Are Pointing To Really Depend On What Type of Soundcard Your Computer Has. Make Sure You Have The Red Arrow Checked Along With The Enable Outgoing Voice Communication Box Checked (Just Above The Red Arrow). Same With The Yellow Arrow. The Area Where The Green Arrow Is Pointing Is Where You Choose What Key You Want To Press While Talking, I Suggest Caps Lock.(Click Inside The Box Where The Green Arrow Is Pointing Then Press The Key You Want To Use As Your Talk Button.) I Would Leave Most Things Alone On Here Unless You Know What You Are Doing. Once All Of This Is Done Click The Ok Button That The Purple Arrow Is Pointing To.
Make Sure You Have Both The Check Boxes That The Red Arrow and The Green Arrows Are Pointing To UNChecked!
And Ta-Da! You're Done! Awesome Job. Now There Is Just One Last Step To Show You How To Get Around Now That You Are On The Dang Program
Next Step, Using Ventrilo
Ok Everything You See In The White Space Under "Ping", Are Some Of The Channels In Ventrilo, To Switch Channels Simply Double Click The Channel you Wish To Be In. If You Want To Have A Message Next To Your Name To Denote An Away MSG or Something, Click The Comment Box That The Red Arrow Is Pointing To, Then Enter Your Comment In The Box That The Green Arrow Is Pointing To. If You Want People To Be Notified Of Your Comment Then UNcheck The Box Next To "Send Silently" That The Yellow Arrow Is Pointing To. (Otherwise They Won't Know Until They Open The Ventrilo Box). Now Click The OK Button Where The Blue Arrow Is Pointing To. There Is Also An Inside Typing Chat Program, Hence The 'Chat' Button Below The Arrow Area. I Don't Believe I Need To Explain The Box That Says 'Disconnect', Above The Red Arrow.. If I Do .. Then Click It And Ill Explain.
Ok This Concludes The End Of Your Ventrilo Tutorial, I Hope You Enjoyed It, Hope It Helped You .. yada yada yada .. And Now For Something Entirely Different...
