Official Mumble Information (Updated!)

Strats maintains a mumble server that shares the forum authentication, user trust levels, and groups. People can join without a password but will have limited rights. If you want to invite someone who will have full access, use the invite friend system or tell them to sign up.

Mumble is an open-source, cross-platform VOIP application. It operates similarly to common closed-source programs TeamSpeak and Ventrilo. At the moment Mumble is one of the best VoIP applications to due to its open licensing, allowing for alliances to run servers that can host several thousand players without financial penalty.

Mumble Etiquette

We all like to have fun and joke around. That is perfectly fine. Use common sense though. It might go without saying but we’ve all been in situations while gaming where there’s that one guy that just doesn’t know how to draw the line.

No racist, homophobic, hate mongering. We are a diverse group of players from different parts of the world with different stories and have different worldviews. Conduct yourself in a thoughtful, intelligent manner deserving of mutual respect. Just because you’re not face-to-face doesn’t mean your speech is not a reflection of you.

Apart from that, here are some other things to keep in mind:

  • Use Push-to-Talk (see below)
  • Are you in a PVP raid and Command is talking? Don’t talk.
  • Did someone say “CHECK!” or “COMMS!”? Don’t talk.
  • Are you keying up to burp, fart, munch, or yawn? Don’t.

Connecting to Mumble

To connect to the Strats mumble server as a registered user, all you need is a forum account. Your username, password, group access, avatar, and status all carry over (yes, if you get banned from the forum, you are banned from mumble).

First, download Mumble.

  • Address
  • Port 64738 (the default)
  • Username is your username here on the forum
    (Don’t add anything extra to it like @ or other such stuff, just your username!)

Oh no! WTF is my password?

Once you connect, you will be prompted for a password. This is the password you use to sign in to If you don’t know what your password is, you can change it any time by going to your profile > preferences and clicking the “Send Password Reset Email” button.

Push to Talk (PTT)

There is nothing more annoying than hearing other people type or breathe into their microphone constantly. If you leave push-to-talk off during an op then you are liable to be ripped apart by the everyone else in the channel.

This is why push to talk is mandatory. Not to mention, it actually saves bandwidth, too.

To turn on push to talk for Mumble, follow these steps.

  1. Open up Mumble
  2. Click the “Configure” option at the top, then click settings
  3. You should now be in the Audio Input settings area, under the Transmission area make sure the Transmit drop down box is set to “Push to Talk”
  4. Now you need to assign a key that you will need to press so others can hear you. To do this click the “Shortcuts” button on the left hand side of the Settings dialog box.
  5. There should be a listing there labeled “Push-to-Talk”, click on the Shortcut column and press the key that you wish to be your push to talk key.

Now you’re ready for battle, good job!

having trouble connecting to mumble tonight. does it have something to do with the fact that i’m using google to login? maybe it’s not liking the fact that i’m using dontcallmejames as my username instead of my gmail address.

No, dontcallmejames is your username. Have you set a password? If not, see the thread above. If you signed up via google, you’ll need to set a password manually by following the instructions above.

From the logs, looks like @Sybrine is having the same issue so maybe she’ll see this too.

thanks, waiting for password reset email now. i’m a dummy and didn’t read above.

Is anyone else having issues with mumble on win 7 x64 bit? I have Verizon FiOS and checked my ping through some other avenues and I don’t understand why I’m getting 780+ms ping. On top of that, the program is laggy, clicks take a few seconds and drop downs don’t respond right away. If anyone else experienced this and has a fix please let me know.


I’m not sure what that could be. If the app itself is sluggish, something else is likely at play. Are you sure you’re using the latest build? You might want to try a special Windows 7 snapshot build.

Fixed, installed the snapshot build. Thanks!

Awesome, let us know if you run into any other issues. As Mumble is open source, there’s generally a build to solve most issues out there.

Able to connect with my forum password, but dont have permissions to switch channels

You’re still listed as a new user. Trust is gained automatically by forum usage. If you read and interact a bit, it takes no time at all (like 10 minutes). Otherwise, you can request a drag from @Majordomo, @Biff_Tannen, @Vocino, @tommy2118.

FYI, it seems if you use G+ to register with this site you will have to use the “change password” tool to be able to get into mumble. When I first tried using my google password, no dice, did a pw reset and was able to get in easily.

Yup, that is covered in the “Oh no! WTF is my password?” section of the OP :smile:

What’s a good key for push to talk? I’ve never used mumble before.

Unfortunately @tam , there is not any “one” good key. You might love one key in WildStar but it might give you fits in another game. I think a lot of people use ` (directly above the TAB key). The good news is that you can have multiple keys set up in mumble and just suppress the ones you are not using. Hope this helps.

@tam I actually use my caps lock, and then I deleted the function from my registry of the caps lock, so programs still see it as the caps lock button but it doesn’t actually caps lock…it’s worked really nicely especially cause I have no need TO YELL IN CHAT! =)

The other thing you could do is if you have a logitech (or razer/corsair) keyboard you can bind a macro button specific for push to talk. The Logitech G930 headset also has a push to talk assignable button that that’s all it does. I don’t really recommend the G930 tho…I’ve had two…and both have failed me after 6 months…I’m not bitter about it…but they are expensive…so maybe a little bitter =)

Here is a registry edit to kill caps lock for windows Vista, 7, and 8.


I was going to ask you to help me out with this thanks!
