Setting up TeamSpeak 2
« on: Tue, 10 Jul 2012, 21:49:14 »
We use a program called TeamSpeak for voice communications. Due to using some features in FSInn we have to use TeamSpeak 2. This can be downloaded from http://www.teamspeak.com/?page=downloads&archive=1

First, if you don't already have it, you will need to download the TeamSpeak ClientClient You should also download the updated Executable Client (updated binary) Install the client first and then replace the TeamSpeak.exe with the updated one. Not doing this won't stop TeamSpeak working but it is better to run the latest version. If you run Vista or Windows 7 you will want to mark the TeamSpeak.exe Run As Administrator. It's not the end of the world if you don't follow these later points as once connected as a guest others will be able to help you.

Connecting as a Guest
You do not need to do anything beyond the installation in order to access our server. If you login to the club's website you will see a column on the right hand side. There are several sections, one obvious one is called TeamSpeak. You'll see a link called "Connect as guest named <your forum name>". Click this and TeamSpeak will connect to the server. Once connected it'll be possible to chat with other members and, if you need it, get help on flight simulation and the online flying if you're interested.

Configuring a Connection
Creating a connection to the server in TeamSpeak is quite easy to do. Run TeamSpeak and select Connection->Connect from the menu. If you already got connections defined you'll see a list, if not it's empty. Either way using your mouse, right click within the Local Address Book field and select Add Server. Fill in the boxes as I have but selected your own nickname and again change your Login Name to the same number you used for FSInn (see http://www.bristolflightsimgroup.org.uk/smf/index.php?topic=2301.0 to establish your login ID) There is a global password used for FSInn and TeamSpeak, see http://www.bristolflightsimgroup.org.uk/smf/index.php?topic=2302.0

How To use a Yoke/Joystick button for Push-to-Talk

To setup a controller button to compliment the PTT button you use in TeamSpeak you need to change a setting is the FSFDT control panel (this of course requires you to have FSInn installed to do this). This is found in the Windows Taskbar (right hand side and may be hidden unless you look) and this only appears when FS is running. The traffic light icon looks something like

Open this up and you'll get the FSFDT Control Panel, click the + by the Key Management item, then click Joy to Key. In here there are 2 input fields near the bottom; FS Joystick Mapping and Key Mapping. To the right of the text display area are set buttons. Click each set in turn, first press the Joystick/Yoke button you wish to use (FS Joystick Mapping) and for the Key Mapping you press the PTT button you use in TeamSpeak. Once both fields are filled in press 'Apply' and your dialog should look something like
