How to Connect to Our mumble Server
Mumble is an Open-source, free, popular and high quality VoIP system similar to TeamSpeak or Ventrilo that can be used for voice chat with a group of people across the internet. Here at lagcraft Minecraft we run a private Mumble server for our players to use to chat with each other while playing the game. The Mumble software is officially supported on Windows, Mac OSX, Linux and Android, so everyone is invited! Check the mumble info in the sidebar to see who is currently online.
- The first thing you need to do is install mumble. You can get mumble at http://mumble.sourceforge.net/ Install the appropriate (stable) version (latest is 1.2.3a as of this writing) for your operating system.
In order to connect and talk with us, you will need to download and install the client. A guide to downloading and installing Mumble is available on their website, http://mumble.sourceforge.net/. Once you have installed Mumble, you must:
Open Mumble and open the “Mumble Server Connect” window.
Click the “Add New…” button.
In the dialog box that appears, enter the following information:
Label = lagcraft
Address = mumble.lagcraft.com
Port = 64738
Finally, put your minecraft username in the Username box and click “Ok”.
You should see “lagcraft” is now in your server list. Select it and click “Connect”.
You’re done! You can move yourself into different chat channels by clicking and dragging your username, or doubleclicking the channel you want to go to.
While using mumble or IRC, you are subject to some more rules than in-game, including, but not limited to, the following:
- No page spamming or private message spamming. This is the same as in-game spamming.
- No using lagcraft’s mumble or IRC for communicating on a competitor’s server.
- No impersonation of other users or Staff is permitted.
- No repeated abuse of other players in IRC. Trash talk and slander is for in-game and mumble.
Why not IRC? Simple: IRC is far more public than mumble and in-game. Just as the forums have this rule, so does IRC. Free speech does NOT apply, as it does in-game. Therefore you may be kicked or banned from IRC at a moderator's discretion. Usual reasons for bans are spam, excessive whining, trolling and general abusive behavior. However, most moderators and admins are quite tolerant, and IRC bans are rare.
