Famcraft Mumble Server
« Opened on March 06, 2013, 05:42:39 AM (Edited March 15, 2017, 07:19:41 PM) »
 FamCraft offers a Mumble server to our players. The server is located at mumble.famcraft.com

 The Mumble server has the same family friendly chat rules as the entire Famcraft family of servers.Please keep these rules in mind when joining the chat.

Abusive, racist, sexual, drug-related, belligerent, political, and generally offensive remarks will not be tolerated in posts, text, skin, private messages, or nick/screen names.

 We ask that you use your in game name when you visit us on the Famcraft Mumble server.

 Mumble is a free voice chat app available for Windows, Mac, and Linux PCs as well as a variety of mobile devices. If you do not have a mic, you do have the option of typing in the chat window. You will still be able to hear the other players and respond to them via text. 

Thank you to ChipW for this terrific step-by-step Mumble setup video- https://www.youtube.com/embed/74m8SBiwdeo

 You can find Mumble for Windows and OS X here:
Windows Installer
Mac OS X Installer

 Mumble on Linux can be found in your distribution's software repository, under the package name "mumble".

 Mumble for iDevices (iPod Touch, iPhone, iPad) can be found on the iTunes App Store, and there are a couple of third party options available for Android on the Google Play Store.

 Once you download and install the app, it is easy to connect to the Famcraft server.

Download and install the app. Then Click Server > Connect

 This should bring up a window named "Mumble Server Connect" near the bottom of the window, click  "Add New.." button.

 In the "Add Server" window that pops up, add the following information:

Label: Famcraft (You can call it anything)

For Android users:

There are a few different Mumble apps available from the Play Store. This post will discuss the free Mumble app by LordMarty on the Play Store.

When you first start the app, you will be presented with this screen:

Tap your menu key on your device to bring up the menu and select the "Add Server" button, as directed by the arrow in the image below:

On this screen, you can add a new Mumble server. In this case, you'll want to add the Famcraft Mumble server.

Label: Can be anything you want, but set to "Famcraft" in the example image below.
Address: mumble.famcraft.com
Port: 64738 (The default port, if you're familiar with the desktop version of Mumble)
Username: Should be your in-game username, so no one is confused when you join.
Password: Leave this blank, it isn't needed on this Mumble server.

Click on "Add Server" when you've filled out everything correctly to save the server.

After adding the server, your main Mumble screen should look like the one below. Tap the server you just added to connect to it.

The red arrow in the image below points out the PTT (Push-To-Talk) button, hold that button down to transmit, release to stop transmitting. The yellow arrow points out the Chat button, click this to view the channel's text chat screen, where you can type messages or send links to other people in that chat channel. And finally, the blue arrow points out the Change Channel button, click that to select a different chat channel. The Famcraft Mumble has a handful of different chat channels for our players to use, so if you join and no one is talking in the "Root" channel, try clicking that button to see if there are other channels you can hop in to and start chatting in!

If you're interested in a more complete Mumble solution than the one listed above, there is also Plumble on the Play Store for $1.31 which provides a better experience if you're willing to spend a bit of money.
