This tutorial will cover the installation and Basic use of TeamSpeak3. There are quite a few VoIP options available. Here at IMA, we have chosen the use of TeamSpeak 3. If you want to become a member of IMA, you will need to have this program installed and you must use it. You can also use our TeamSpeak 3 server if you just want to hang out with us. We welcome the public to come and join us in channel for a higher level of gaming experience.

You will need to download the latest version of TeamSpeak 3 for your PC. This is the Download page for TeamSpeak 3. (http://www.teamspeak.com/?page=downloads) Please select the appropriate Client version for your OS.

After you have completed the installation process, the Setup Wizard should run. Please proceed with the steps outlined in the wizard to properly prepare your PC for use of TS3. Keep in mind, when entering your username, that this can be changed at any time, as the security for your account is set to your unique I.D.

You will need to enter the requested information as shown. The IP shown is our current main TS3 server. In the event that our main goes down, we will make an announcement to switch to the backup server and what that IP address is. There is no required password for access at the moment. If this is your first time loading our server, or if you have had to do a clean install on your PC, then you will need to have your Permissions set by either a Senior Admin for Normal user groups, or a leader for Admin user groups. Be advised, per our current rules for TS3 user access, you will need to request for access in TS3, via TS3 and also by communicating within XFire or Battlelog. You WILL NOT be given permissions outside of this procedure.

After you have connected to the main Clan IMA TS3 channel, go ahead and bookmark the channel.http://img521.imageshack.us/img521/4543/ts3bm.png (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/521/ts3bm.png/)

You can name it whatever you choose. http://img62.imageshack.us/img62/200/ts3savingbm.png (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/62/ts3savingbm.png/)

After your permissions have been set, to navigate through the different channels, simply double click on the channel you wish to change to. NOTE, if your permissions have not been set, or you are trying to switch to a channel you do not have access to, you will have to ask an Admin or Leader to move you.
