Step 2: Connect with the following info:
- Username: Put your name and not “guest-name”
- Password: You should already have the password from the hosts
Step 3: Double click the chat room name “webuildsg-live” to join. Otherwise, you will be just in the lobby and not inside the chat room to hear the sound board and the hosts during the live show.
This is how the mumble interface will typically look during the live show.
Take note of the chat inside the interface that you can use to communicate with only the hosts during the show
Step 4: While typing in the chat there will be notification sounds. You can switch them off by going to Preferences > Messages tab > uncheck all columns expect for 1st column “Console”
Menu > Mumble > Preferences
- Check the “Advanced” options at the bottom
- Important: You must click “Apply” and save the settings. Close this preference menu before you can hear the audio.
For Windows: Go to Configure > Settings.
Ensure that you check the “Advanced” options.
Uncheck all columns Notification, Text-To-Speech and Soundfile to mute all notification sounds:
Adjust the Windows sound levels if needed:
(Optional) Chat with live audience
