Upgrading Vent Server to 4! Important!

It is time to upgrade our vent to V4. It's been around 6 months, so teething problems should be resolved.

When we upgrade our Vent server, you will NOT be able to log in on Vent 3. You MUST upgrade your Vent client to version 4!

This will happen on Tuesday 6th March.

If you upgrade your Vent client before then, you will not be able to log on to the server.
If you haven't upgraded your client on 6th March, you will not be able to log on to the server.

I know you're all old and forgetful, but please try and get this straight in your mind! :lol:

AFAIK, none of the settings will change. But watch for panicky follow-up posts from me just in case.

Please pass the word to Kin Friends so they're ready too.

Well, there's no point at all in upgrading before 6th March if you want to log into The Elders' server because it won't be upgraded. So the answer must be: as soon as he is able after 6th March, and definitely before you join an Elders' group.

Other kins and groups have already upgraded. Depending who he plays with, that may be relevant too. We've been slow and cautious around it.

*really worried* So I've done it. And it was all dead easy. And Vent 4 imported my settings. And it was all dead easy. Even the voice-levelling settings were imported. And it all worked, no problems, no hiccups, just smooth.....
*really worried*

Anyway, you MUST now upgrade to Vent 4 if you want to use Vent.

And ....errmmm... maybe it'll be dead easy... :shock:

What is Vent? I have lived without vent up to now. Shall I continue to live without vent or do I need it, or not yet?

Vent is our (voice) chat server. It's not compulsory (unless you're raiding with us) but... it's nice to chat!

I tried, I really tried, but I couldn't figure out how to upgrade. But as I'm not joining in at the moment it doesn't matter too much.

Search Google for Ventrilo 4

Put in Vent settings as per Kinship Announcements sticky

Uninstall Vent 3 if you have it. It's no use to you any more...

:)

Use old Vent 3 settings. (Answer YES to the question, Do you want to use...)


Don't uninstall Vent 3 until all is fine and dandy.


P.S. Beware - the sound is MUCH stronger than in Vent 3!
