Game Talk / Teamspeak and Windows 10
« Last Post by Zaphod on November 09, 2020, 04:46:11 PM »
Although not specifically game related topic I include this here as it is mainly 90% used for gaming.

Teamspeak although very very useful is not well written in terms of Windows compliance, for example if you hit power button or the power off in the start button (any 32/64bit windows or NT) and a program is still running windows will send a notification to the program and it will close any data files open and shutdown. Thsi is not the case with Teamspeak3, XP and vista would tell you that it's running and will wait for you to force close it before it shuts down or restarts (whatever you chose), Wins 7, 8 did the same and 8.1 and 10 will learn by warning you to force close it and then after a time learn and just get on with the forced close.

This alone is not good, as a programmer myself and have written windows programs if you left my programs open and shut windows down it will comply with the request to close by the windows API and close down.

Teamspeak does not. Now I find that Teamspeak will no longer auto run on windows startup or allow different ports to be used for sound and  queries, the former and latter I used a different port for security reasons as everyone knows the standard ports and "flooding programs" have these ports built in.

So! Teamspeak won't close when windows closes (not good), won't start with a custom port (also not good) and Teamspeak won't autostart from a shortcut or script (not good either).

I am now looking at Ventrillo, this is a system that was better than Teamspeak V2 in terms of codecs and bandwidth as it was not so greedy.

So I shall be looking at the virtues of Ventrillo or other Voice chat systems.

Have fun!

Yes, I did not want to dig too deep into this error, but for me it usually comes up when an otherwise fully functional server loads a bad map, and first everyone playing on it times out; then any reconnect attempts shows the server but you only get a preliminary 'enumerating session' as a result. (Currently the maps running on TG are tested and good, so this is unlikely here.)

Also when the server port forwarding setup through a firewall is not correct, the server talks to the Novalogic servers and it shows up, but an external player only gets 'enumerating session' when trying to connect; sometimes the host can be seen playing on their server, but noone else can connect. (This is unlikely to happen on TG servers, since you know what you are doing)

It usually means the server has crashed, and is not responding to the players connection attempt.

It's a ambiguous report as it means the server is not acknowledging a handshake from the calling client, but the Novaworld system has seen the server and in this particular case the server never crashed but was not showing as online and the game system had not logged it off.

This is a failing at the Novaworld end that Nordic has inherited and will not be doing anything about it as it is a redundant system for gaming.

Announcements / Teamspeak offline.

Due to windows update screwing the laptop that teamspeak is running on, it will be offline during the period 08:00 - 18:00 GMT

It may be on and off sporadically during these times

If you read the topic Called stormed out internet you will understand why the server was offline.

Due to Hurricane and subsequent storm that hit us, we have lost our fibre connection and telephones, had limited cell coverage due to tower damage also, although now getting 5G again still no internet in home or work, so no TeamSpeak. I can only be reached via Trillian, the cable company are coming to pull a new Fibre tomorrow at some stage but don't know how long it will take but at least 3-4 days as they have found too many breaks in cable and need a new one. Will keep you posted.

P.S. I am going to go crazy if I can't kill Nazi's and destroy a load of technology.

See you in the games.
