Okay, so the game itself doesn't have voip, and you don't want to spend any money for a TS3 or Vent server. So what can you use? Well, luckily there is a program called Raid Call. They offer free server hosting, 1000 user slots, clear crisp audio, and low latency. The servers are built and ran the same way as TS or Vent.

To get your server started, just go to http://www.raidcall.com/, Download the program (takes about 3 seconds) then install (takes about 5 seconds). Once you have installed the program, it's time to run it. Making an account is fast and easy and can be done on the program without creating an account on the raid call site and without user account email activation. User accounts are also available for use immediately so there is no wait.

Once you have made your account, its time to log in and start creating your server channels and sub channels, as well as creating your members, channel admins, and group (server) admins. To make a channel or sub channel, on the Windows version, click on the manage button on the lower left corner of the program's window. To kick, ban, add or remove powers, make member, or add a user as a contact, just right click on a user's name that is in your server.

Some Admin features include: Account or IP banning and unbanning, kicking from group or channel, removing a users typing or voice chat privileges, moving a user from channel to channel, etc.

Other features include: Clear and crisp audio similar to TS or Vent, Low Latency, 1000 user slots, free server hosting, in game overlay similar to Xfire, etc.

All in all this is a great program to use, its easy, its free (nothing is ever free phrase doesn't count here, it's really free) and it's reliable. This program receives the approval of the =TBB= clan and gets a 5 star rating.

Edit: In-Game overlay only available on some games. This feature is not yet available for Battlefield Play4Free.

that picture reminds me of thumbthing..


OT: Good stuff Capt...I'd never heard of raidcall, I'll give it a try this weekend. I only pay about $4/mo for my TS server, but if I can save even that, then it's worth a try!

Yeah, maybe someone like Sivanoshi can. I mean, they have a Teamspeak, but this is free. They pay/slot, this comes with 1000 slots. Its enough to cover every player in the game. And you get all the benifits on TS or Ventrilo!

so you can have your own servers? even pw protected?
we don't want any bots to crash the server or stupid kiddos joining random servers and annoying the crap out of everyone.

PW protected = yes

Own servers = yes

Own unlimited amount of servers = hell yeah!

Edit: And again, you don't need to keep your computer running for the server to stay up. All servers are hosted and kept running at the raidcall center so you don't need to worry about your server crashing if your computer gets turned off.
