    We have officially launched our Discord Server and it's setup so everybody is able to join already.

    Join this server: discord.houseofpainserver.co.uk

    This server can be used for basically anything, Teamspeak, Whatsapp, Forum etc...
    This server suits the needs for the majority of us. A combination of Teamspeak, Whatsapp, skype and slack. Developed for gaming communities.
    We strongly recommend everybody to join the Discord channel, and invite everybody into the game whenever you play.

    You can join through browser or through their application, which can be downloaded here: https://discordapp.com/
    Be aware: Browser doesn't support talking, it's required to have the discord application installed in order to join our voice channels.

    This post is dedicated to discord updates and to keep our members informed about any occuring changes to our discord server. This is NOT a discussion thread, and will only be used for announcement regarding discord.

    *UPDATE*
    Ever since we launched our Discord channel, a lot of people have joined up. However Discord has never really been active, with the main reason of that being that most stuck to Teamspeak.

    As Discord has introduced and released their Category system, i'd like to get Discord more active, and more used.

    Why discord?
    Discord is one of the most actively used voice-chat platforms out there at the moment. This is with because of a bunch of things, whom the most important once are:

    1. It's free, it doesn't need a server on our end, as it uses their server.
    2. High customizability, discord has an "Easy-Addon" functionality, which makes it easy for us to add addons which makes it better manageable or more fun to use.
    3. Great Sound Quality. In my opinion Discord's sound quality is better than Teamspeaks quality. Ofcourse more of a personal preference.
    4. Use Friendly. Compared to Teamspeak (Which is a complete pain in the ass when it comes to UI), Discord is highly user friendly with a great and clear UI which is easy to use for basically any idiot out here.
    5. Categories! It's new, and one of the reasons why i disliked Discord as everything else is pretty great. Up untill yesterday there were no Categories in your channel. Everything was pretty much just in the same category. We can now categorize the exact same channel format as we have on Teamspeak.
    6. Text Chat. Even tho Teamspeak also has sort of a text chat, Discord has Channels. Basically just Chatrooms where you can get on and tell people to come and play.
    7. Free Phone App. Discord has a free app for ios and android, which can be used to stay online on your phone and be able to still talk to people. You can join up on a voice channel or a text channel with your phone. No excuses to not have a mic ready, unless you have no compatible phone.
    8. Personal Chat. Discord uses the same database for all servers. This means that you can be on multiple servers on the same account, and you can even have personal chats with eachother. Voice or text.

    For anyone who hasn't used Discord before. This is how it looks.

    Instead of using Teamspeak, i'd like to see more people using Discord instead. Even if you want to stick to Teamspeak i'd like you to join up on Discord and check it out. Maybe you're going to like Discord even more than you like Teamspeak.

    How to join our server?
    1. you open the link: discord.houseofpainserver.co.uk
    You then get this window:
    [​IMG]

    If you already have a Discord account: hit "Login", and login to your account.
    If you don't have Discord installed then enter the name you want to be visible by.
    [​IMG]
    Then hit "Continue", you may get the "Robot" check, if not you'll be instantly redirected to the discord UI.

    [​IMG]
    We first need to go through the wizard to setup our account.
    Hit "Next"
    [​IMG]
    We then enter in our email address and password, so we can login next time and still be in the server.
    [​IMG]
    Then just click "Register Your Account".

    [​IMG]
    If you don't have the Discord application on your system yet, then you can just press the download button.
    This will download Discord and you can install it, then launch the app and login with the details you just entered before.

    When you now hit "Start Using Discord", you will still be on the browser, but you've joined the server.
    [​IMG]
    As you can see on the left (Hop logo), you entered a server. You can easily create or join another server by pressing the + buton.
    By now i recommend you to launch the Discord app and login.


    On the left sidebar you can now switch between channels or chat with friends.

    Chat with friends
    [​IMG]


    Switch servers or conversations
    [​IMG]

    When in a server
    [​IMG]
    Switch channels by pressing the channel you want to join.
    the # icons mean it's a text channel, the speakers are voice channels.
    Discord tries to configure your audio settings properly already. This does not always work, and incase it doesn't simply click the cog on the bottom left.

    [​IMG]

    You can then hit "Speech" and configure your settings. Set an input device and playback device if default isn't working for you.
    Select "VoiceActiviation" or "Push-To-Talk" and the inputsens etc...
    [​IMG]

    This is pretty much everything you need to know, and you only need to do this once!
    Remember your username or email and your password so you can login to your Discord next time. You can join multiple servers on the same account and don't need to create a new one for every server you join.
