    100 interoperable with all 2 3 x Windows clients The Mac client is a functional prototype meaning that it does not have all of the features that are currently available on the Windows platform However base functionality has reached the point so that the general public can begin using the program and provide feedback Over the next several months we will release periodic updates to the Mac client as more features are added and as the new architecture is finalized This will include Channel and Server admin features sound events and changes to the User Interface While functional this version is called a Prototype because the internal architecture is radically different from the Windows client and is currently evolving with each successive release Once the architecture has been fully developed the program will enter the Beta stage By the time this happens the Mac client should have most if not all of the features of the Windows client More screenshots can be found on the About page You can download the Ventrilo client from the Download page If you would like to check on the current state of the Ventrilo Mac client then you can either visit the Mac Status

  • Ventrilo - Applications
    for automatic scrolling when dragging a user or channel around Modified Is window visible test so that it doesn t think the position is invalid if the window coordinates are negative This is a valid value in multi monitor configurations if the primary screen is to the right of the secondary screen Added Error Message List window Keeps a running log of errors and warning messages that the program is generating Allows for more detailed explanations as well Server Editor Added new option called Show login name in remote status requests See Server Properties Require remote status Show login name option Server name is always the first visible item in the list after connecting if no default channel is defined locally or on your account Modified so that the first visible item in the main window doesn t change when a person joins leaves the server or if a person joins leaves a channel above the one you are currently looking at A new login account now defaults to PTT mode and the Hotkey defaults to Left Control Since most people use PTT anyway this made more sense Modified comment button to give the user two different fields a text comment and a URL comment If a URL comment is entered it causes the clients to display a U in the braced comment field next to the user s name This is very beneficial for those users who feel the need to send URL s and uncheck the Send silently option Note The URL comment does not show up in remote status requests nor is it pronounced via TTS Comments are auto restored after an automatic reconnect occurs An existing comment will be displayed in the comment editor window All X close window buttons are now properly handled In the case of the Setup window clicking the X is the same thing as clicking the OK button Rcon window now uses a little bit of color to make the info easier to read User 2 user cross channel etc limits have been increased from 4 to a maximum of 16 Voice Targets should be used as a better solution and globally configurable See below Modified all password entry fields to use Bullets instead of Asterisks Login names now support every character except those below Space and a few select characters This will enable European names that use characters above the standard ASCII 127 Fixed client crash if you start a drag operation and the source item moves from its last known location Fixed auto restore from systray on disconnect not removing the systray icon TTS will now attempt to filter out URL s Sound Modified sound system to remove 99 of clicks at the start and stop of a voice stream Carry over from 2 3 2 Beta 3 Modified sound system to be less aggressive when detecting wave headers coming in too fast Changes made in Setup or any of the SFX windows are applied immediately after pressing the OK button to any current voice streams No longer need to Check Uncheck Mute Sound New and and some existing default sound event wave files have been updated and are more pleasing to the ear Thanks to TJ Powell Publishing www tjpowell com Added option in Binds editor to mute all inbound streams to your self while you are transmitting Affects your local client only See Binds below Added option in Binds editor to mute anyone else that is transmitting while you are transmitting Affects other clients who are receiving your voice stream See Binds below Modified the Speex codec to solve problems with certain people creating some obnoxious noises when they laughed or coughed into the Microphone Carry over form 2 3 2 Beta 3 NOTE You should set outbound amplifiers to 0 and use mixer mux line Added equalizer window for adjusting sound quality when transmitting Visual Modified most of the windows so that any inner control windows cover the entire width of the outer frame window There are a few exceptions like the Error List window where text appears above the list so that computer novices are presented with info about how to use the window Connected users are sorted in each channel according to their type Accounts then Guests then Phantoms Menu Reordered some of the menu items so that they break down according to User or general use with a separator between them Makes the menus easier to understand Modified Popup menu to be more informative about things such as a window already being open or a mute state set by properly applying a check mark to the specific menu item Added Move User To Back from the dead Also modified to display only valid target channels depending on your access rights Moved User Copy Comment to Miscellaneous menu This way you can copy the comment of a user or a channel Carry over from 2 3 2 Beta 3 Added View Error Message List Added View Voice Targets Added View Commanding Targets Added View Equalizer Outbound Added View Rank Added View Bold channel names Added User Private Chat Added User Lodge Complaint About Added Miscellaneous Copy Comment URL Added Miscellaneous GUI Ignore Keys Added Change State Accept Private Chat sessions Added

All Guests Removed Channel Admin Login Logout See UAR Modified Channel Admin Delete Confirms that you really want to delete Added Rent a server to bottom of menu Record Playback Fixed so that it doesn t consume lots of time if an individual sample is very long The Mute sound on the main window will now mute sound being played back Logitech Game Panel Added support for Logitech Game Panel aka the G15 keyboard Carry over from 2 3 2 Beta 3 Modified the 4 th soft button to toggle the name of the person who sent the message on and off Modified the first three lines on page 1 to use two character abbreviations Ch Rv and Ev so as to have more display space Modified so that when a user stops transmitting their name will continue to be displayed on the Rv line for a few more seconds but with a added in front of their name Comments and Integration messages will appear on the Ev line and in the Events page If more then one copy of Ventrilo is running and both are using the Game Panel then both will be displayed simultaneously but their names will show up as Ventrilo 1 Ventrilo 2 etc Setup Voice Modified control panel buttons to work properly on Vista Note These buttons still do not work properly on 64Bit XP 64Bit Win2003 and 64Bit Vista In these cases you will need to open the control panels manually Modified the Amplifier Outbound slider to pop a message once if a Mixer Mux Line is not selected This is the cause of so many bad sounding people Use the Line Volume first and the Outbound Amplifier as a last resort as the documentation says Modified the Hotkey to support multiple key combinations Setup Events Redesigned for easier use and expansion Added Private Chat Open event Added Private Chat Message event Added All Wave button Added All TTS button Added All Nothing button Added Play button and pre programmed examples for TTS events Setup Speech Added Speech filter Added Phonetic filter Setup Overlay This tab is new with version 3 0 It controls whether or not the hardware overlay system will be used and how it is configured See Overlay below Server Properties Removed the following items They have been moved to User Access Rights Duplicate IP s Reserved Slots Default Channel Restrict phantom users to USR file Added the following items Guest logins Max guest logins Auto kick after X minutes Auto ban for X minutes Require remote status Show login name User Access Rights UAR This by far is the most advanced and far reaching feature of version 3 0 The following items are available in the new user editor For more detailed explanations how these features work please click the help button from the User Editor window You can also visit the following page for more details about suggested configuration options http www ventrilo com uar php There are now two types of users on a Ventrilo server Accounts and Guests Each account gets its own access rights Guest accounts are automatically assigned the rights as defined for the Guest account in the user editor This way you can still have an open server but be able to prevent non account users from creating problems You can also turn an open server into a protected server with a click of a button simply by locking the guest account You can also provide a reason why an account is locked so that the guest accounts will know that it might be unlocked at a later time When an account is locked the reason why is sent to anyone who tries to login with that account name which includes guest accounts Ventrilo uses what is called an Owner policy An individual account can be assigned the Add users right which allows them to add new user account names to the server Unless they also have the Server Admin right they will only be able to see and manipulate those accounts that they have created or Ownership has been assigned to them This is beneficial when you have multiple organizations that share a common server The owner can then add and remove privileges for individual accounts as they see fit Only a server admin can assign any of the Admin tab rights User Editor properties include the following Profiles Profiles allow you create custom configurations that you might want to assign to people on a regular basis You can use the two pre defined profiles one for the average user and one for a low powered admin or you can create your own and save them to a file so that they will show up in your Profiles menu the next time you add or edit a user account Info Login name Password Owner Rank Notes Network Account is locked Reason locked In reserved list Receive broadcast streams Add phantoms Record Ignore inactivity timers Send complaints Receive complaints Duplicate IP s Switch channels Default channel Transmit Broadcast Broadcast to lobby Broadcast User to user Broadcast Cross

commands Edit Voice Targets Edit Commanding Targets Assign reserved Chan Admin User accounts are now assigned channel admin rights for specific channels This eliminates the chance of a global channel admin password from being leaked Chan Auth User account can be assigned the right to enter specific channels that have been configured for User Authorization mode Channels Channel features have also been greatly enhanced The following items have been removed or changed Channel Admin Check box in front of Channel password Phantom mode Replaced by Allow Phantoms Restrict transmitting to USR file entries Replaced by Disable Guest account transmitting Added the following items Allow Phantoms Allow Guest Accounts to Join Allow Voice Targets Allow Commanding Targets Exempt from Inactivity Timers Disable Guest Account Transmitting Protected Mode Channel specific codec See below Transmit Rank Level Fixed the Max Clients bug if a value greater then 50 is specified Private Chat This is a new feature for version 3 0 It s like the global chat window but between two individuals only Also supports a Push To Talk button inside the window it self when held down will act just like a physical PTT button but using the GUI instead The voice stream is sent only to the person the session is attached to and no one else provided that Voice Activation is not used Also displays an XMIT and RECV when a voice stream is active NOTE Not supported on Public version of the server Chat Modified to display clickable URL links Modified so that text auto wraps instead of using horizontal scroll bars Message length extended to 256 characters Added Timestamp option Displays color for system messages and user names Carryover from 2 3 2 Beta 3 MOTD Modified to display clickable URL links Fixed bug in RTF messages Same applies to Guest MOTD Guest MOTD New for version 3 0 Similar to the MOTD but is sent only to guest accounts Guest accounts do not see the regular MOTD Can not be turned off like regular MOTD Complaints This is a new feature for version 3 0 It allows you to send a complaint about another user currently logged into the server User accounts who have been authorized to receive complaint messages can then review the complaints This feature was added for those occasions when technical solutions do not provide the best desired way for stopping bad behavior See UAR If you are allowed to send complaints you can send a complaint about yourself requesting that an admin make changes to your account Assuming that an admin with correct privileges will review your complaint Icons Version 3 0 introduces a more advanced communication system that provides better visual feedback as to what and where information is coming from For example In previous versions if a person was in different channel than you and they are transmitting to just their local channel you would still see his Speaker icon light up as Green Using the above scenario you will now see the speaker icon light up as Yellow meaning that he is transmitting but you are not an intended recipient of the stream There are several new icons that show why you are receiving the stream They are A Green letter P indicating that it s a private chat voice stream A Green letter U indicating that it s a User 2 User voice stream A Green letter C indicating that it s a Cross Channel voice stream A Green letter G indicating that it s a Voice Target voice stream New yellow channel and signs indicating that the channel is configured for User Authorization mode See Channel below All of these icons can be overridden by the user Click the help button from the main Ventrilo window for details on how to do that Note Mac client does not support this just yet Rank Version 3 0 introduces the concept of Ranks A Rank can be created with the Rank List window via the Server Admin menu option Each rank is assigned an abbreviation a long description and rank level Each user account created in the User Editor See UAR can be assigned no rank or a rank from the rank list The abbreviated value will appear before the users name in brackets if so desired Rank levels are used to control whether or not a person is allowed to transmit while in a channel that has a Transmit Rank Level assigned to it This way you can have auto muted channels and anyone with the appropriate rank level will be automatically un muted as soon as they enter the channel The old way they had to be manually un muted Binds Added Commanding sub functions Added Overlay sub functions Added support for multi key binds See below PTT Advanced Added Voice Target option PTT Advanced Added Mute other users option PTT Advanced Added Mute inbound streams option Complete redesign of the Binds editor Much cleaner and easier to use and understand Hotkey names are user friendly now Voice Targets Voice Targets are new with version 3 0 They allow an admin to create multiple groups with unique names and each group is assigned a list of account names that will receive voice streams Some users in this group will be assigned the right to transmit to the named group while others will only be allowed to receive The advantage to Voice Targets is that all users in the group will receive the voice stream no matter what their current channel is There are two ways to use a Voice Target 1 Define a PTT Key in the binds editor that when held will allow you to transmit a voice stream to one or more Voice Target groups 2 Open the Voice Targets window Select one or more of the target group names for which you have been given transmit rights too and press and hold the Push to talk button in the window Not supported in Public versions of the server Commanding Targets Commanding Targets are new with version 3 0 They allow an admin to create multiple groups with unique names and each group is assigned a list of account names that will receive commanding messages Some users in this group will be assigned the right to transmit to the named group while others will only be allowed to receive When a commanding message is received the message will either be displayed in the Commanding Window and the Overlay See below if enabled This way you can have pre defined Binds that send out commands or orders to a group of people telling them it s time to achieve a new objective The message can also be run through the Text to speech engine for audible notification There are two ways to send a Commanding Target message 1 Define a PTT key
