I found it last night.
The System Properties window will say Windows XP Professional x64 Edition Version (year). A 32 bit system says Windows XP Professional Version (year).

Can someone send the Vent server info please? I'll start that wrestling match

OK, I downloaded Ventrilo today. It can't really be as easy as adding the IP, Port and password is it?
We use the World of Tanks channel correct? Below Shadow's Realm?

Does Vent work while we're in the garage? Or only on the battle field?
I ask because it would be nice to test it out before we get to the battle field.
Will everyone signed in be connected? Or limited to those on the same battle field?

oconner, you got it. That simple.

Ventrilo runs as a separate application outside anything else you're doing. People use it for teleconference, games, pretty much anything. I have mine set up for voice activated, so I don't need to hit a key while gaming. WOT doesn't really like that, I've found, where other games don't seem to mind as much.

i use the ~ key and haven't had it cause any problems with WOT. I don't like to use voice activating it because it will come on when you don't want it to. And as here's how we have vent set up.

On a normal night the World of Warcraft people are in the lobby (this channel that you are in when you first log on) I created the World of Tanks channel for us to use for this game. I do not show up on Vent as Switchblade. My name on there is Big. It's tied to my toons name in World of Warcraft.

Cody and friends is some of our collage kids they play games and BS a lot so they have there own channel.

the Officers Channel is just that it's for the officers of our guild on WOW to have meetings,

the other two game channels are just like the one for WOT

and Shadows Realm is for Shadow and bs.

Stand is the server owner, if you have any problems normally any one on in the top channel can help you.

Faster internet connection is all you can do......lag is delay between you and the server. What is your ping?

True.....Hodag, next time you're playing (or take a look at one of your replays if you have them turned on), look in the upper left corner of the screen and take note of what your FPS is, your ping, and what color the lag dot is. That will help us diagnose the problem.

Is it correct that you have to play for weeks to get the soldiers to 100% unless you buy gold?
Is buying gold the only way to buy penetrating ammo(e)?

User name is Fl00d.
Being on the EU server, most of us won't be able to find you I guess...
