Official Iwaku Discord Server

Discussion in 'GENERAL CHATTING' started by Alan, May 7, 2016.

  1. We have migrated away from Teamspeak to Discord.

    Our Discord server address is here.

    While Discord works both in your browser and in an application, we strongly recommend you use the application. Push-to-talk is only available in the browser if the tab its in is the focused tab. This can inhibit things like your ability to chat and roleplay. To download the application, click this link.

    When using different Discord servers, you can change your nickname dependant on the server you're on. On Iwaku's Discord, we require you use your forum name, so that we know who you are.

    We also use Push-to-Talk in most of our voice channels. Please make sure you have this set up if you wish to communicate via voice with us.

    Details on how to set these options up will be posted below. If there's any questions, feel free to ask and they'll be answered in short order!

  2. Setting a server nickname:

    It's pretty easy, and there's a few ways you can go about doing it. This is the easiest, in my opinion.

    a. Right-click the server you wish to assign a nickname for. In this case, it'll be the Iwaku server.


    b. Select "Change Nickname"


    c. Type in your forum name, and click "Save"

  3. Setting a Push-to-Talk key.

    Once you get connected, you'll see something like this:

    This will appear at the bottom of the window, on the left hand side. Click that little cogwheel icon, and you'll enter the settings menu.

    You'll then hop down to the "Voice" section, and you'll see something like this:

    1. This is the area that governs what input method you prefer to use. Since the bulk of channels require push-to-talk, the choice is clear.

    2. This is your push-to-talk key. Try to select something that isn't going to be pushed often or held down for long periods of time. Ensure that you have StickyKeys disabled. Also, note that if you're using something like CTRL, it only uses the CTRL key on the left side of the keyboard. So, if you're closing tabs or copying/pasting, using the CTRL on the right side will not open your microphone.
