Thread: Mumble discussion

I do enjoy a massive table!
A query I had from testing the binds last night, if any mumble gurus can clarify:
"Talk to Everyone" - how does this work from within a Squad channel? Does it broadcast across to all other squads and upwards to the PL? Should it do any of those things or not?
Ksem, the way the guide sets it out, only the "report to PL" has to be double bound. The squads double binds are currently down to personal preference. Personally, I'm only likely to use them as RO during full on TACGIR, and would rather my squad can call out threats/confirm loadouts/etc as opposed to listen to me tell Bravo what I've just been asked to tell Bravo by the SL. As for the mandatory/optional, I was just going on whats written on the Outfit website for each role. There's nothing to stop everyone setting them up (I have for example), but they are physical requirements to have for certain outfit roles.

I know the double binds aren't in the tutorial but they are :
- one of the reason we chose that setup : people in the squads wanted to hear conversations with PL
- been shown to be useful : if people don't know you're talking, they will talk over you and/or don't know when to talk. Especially problematic if the PL is not alone (either he is in PL channel with TVA liaison/bodyguard or in his own squad channel). Also useful to avoid several people from the same squad reporting the same thing (as PL i know it happens)
We started without them, and then introduced them because the need for them was dearly felt

"Talk to Everyone" in your list is the Current + Subchannels bind, right? If so, then all it does is transmit to your channel and all subchannels (recursively downwards). Since Bravo channel is not a subchannel to Alpha squad, using that in Alpha squad channel will not transmit to Bravo. Conclusion: it only works in PL channel.

I was looking for the TVA-TS details yesterday, and I'm being told it's in the MOTD which I assume is the MOTD for our mumble-channel, except I don't get a message of the day when I join that channel. Another thing I noticed is that I can't directly join the vanu channel because I'm denied enter privileges, I can only join any of the sub-channels. So what have I missed?

Never noticed we had one :-)
Will check it out next time I log on
24-11-2013, 10:22 AM #448
That's because PS2 sucks. Or rather, because the MOTD is displayed only on the outfit screen above the member list, and I suspect that only one in ten people ever use the outfit screen. I cannot see why this MMO is the only one in human history not to display the outfit/clan/guild message of the day when you log on. Pretty silly, really...

So last time I saw comms mentioned in a thread, it was one person recommending a setup, then someone else saying it was wrong.
Before anyone answers my following question, please don't link to a guide just assuming it's right, check that everything in that guide will be right for me and others stepping up to SL in the CTA. I genuinely have an (admittedly irrational) hatred of comms setting up, and the discussions around it; if I get conflicting answers, I just won't SL. Here goes -
In light of the CTA - Can someone please tell me which binds I need to SL and link to a guide if there is one, please?

Pretty sure the guide for SLs on rockplanetshotgun.com is correct, you just need to set up two binds to the same key which will allow you to shout up [edit: but not down] the structure. However since the website is currently down that's not much help. >.<
Edited for truth. Apologies.

Eh, guide on the website is correct (assuming we don't bugger around with things for the CTA).
It's one bind to shout up (sitrep). It's more complicated to shout down or across - the benefit being that you talk to exactly who are you are wanting to.

There's been a lot of talk recently about how they might be out of date.
THE WHOLE FUCKING POINT OF THOSE PAGES
Is that they are correct and remain correct for as long as possible. We have not fucked with comms for a long time and have no intention of doing so.
I realise there was a period where RPS comms changed regularly THIS IS OVER.
For once we not only had a great deal of fucking debate on an issue but we also THEN WENT AND ACTUALLY SOLVED IT!
With huge thanks to Eso & Cmaster for this whose knowledge of Mumble's arcane systems seems to exceed that of even the fucking devs...
Get those binds set up. Both pages. Stick with them.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The 'Radio op' role to talk to PL is slightly different. notice that for one 'shout to subchannels' is ticked, for the other not. this is the only difference from the old setup.
The system is simple: A 'radio operator' talks directly to the PL on a single button.
The PL in turn has one button for everyone and one button for each of the squads. The idea is that PLs dedicate themselves to Mumble faff and EVERYONE ELSE has the basic radio op bind setup to provide sitreps.Originally Posted by CROCONOUGHTKEY

Fixed my comms after a PC wipe. Would appreciate them being checked at some point - both RO and PL.

http://www.reddit.com/r/Planetside/c...tside2_x64exe/ as posted somewhere in the state of the game. I needed to search a while in order to find it again, though.
Because of that: Can anyone with the rights to do so edit this into the posts in
I guess any of those would be sufficient because the threads are linked quite well.
- I need to run first mumble, then mumble-d.exe, else it will not work for me (which makes sense to me because I needed to start Mumble before Planetside as well when it was still on 32-bit)
- You can quite easily write a script to do the start of Mumble, like so: Code:
start /D "D:\Program Files (x86)\Mumble" mumble.exe start /D "D:\Program Files (x86)\Mumble\mumble overlay" mumble-d.exe
EDIT: I just tried the overlay fix for the first time ingame and noticed a flickering of the overlay at any time ps2 is not on a loading screen - anyone has a fix for this?

When i tried the mumble-d overlay thng, my entire screen got blurred to the point where it was totally impossible to read any texts or make out any detail at all. It was the standard Windows 7 see-through window effect. If I shut that off, the whole screen would go silvery gray instead.
anyone else have this experience?

Yes, that happens whenever you alt-tab into or out of full-screen mode. I haven't had it in a while now that I remember to switch to fullscreen-windowed.
Has anyone had mumble ask to 'upgrade' to 1.30 every time it starts up, even when you've alread updated?
19-08-2014, 04:46 PM #457
Ah, yeah, well, I've solved this, with the help of Cooper (finding the overlay) and Qw33r (for the batch script). It's to do with the User Access Control functionality in Windows 7. Whenever that runs, the overlay makes the whole screen blurry. I've got this script that I run whenever that happens, which kills and restarts the overlay. Works like a charm.
Here it is:
Run Mumble w. overlay
Just download the file, unzip it to "C:\temp\Mumble overlay" (or change the paths in the .bat file) and off you go! Run the .bat file whenever you're playing PS2, and set PS2 into fullscreen windowed.
Note that fullscreen windowed will disable your in-game brightness settings.
Mumble asks me to upgrade to 1.2.8, or the server announces that there is one available, at least. Not 1.3.0 though.

Just so. I find it handy to keep a shortcut to that script on my desktop.
Edit: been meaning to post about/bump existing info about this for some time now. Getting annoyed at people who say they don't know who's talking because they can't use the overlay. Lazy buggers, or ignorant buggers, whichever it is.

On that note, anyone who can help me get rid of the overlay flickering will get a cookie.
I can barely see whos talking for that reason, and if I have a headache it's ... interesting.Disclaimer:
Sometimes I get a bit manic and then I talk too much and wall-of-text a lot.
This rarely lasts for more than a week or so at a time. Feel free to ignore any and all walls of text at your leisure.
