I've searched on Raidcall and MAC but have not found what I am looking for. Apologies if this numbs the mind.  As Raidcall no longer supports MAC, what are the solutions MAC users are using?  Aside from bootcamp, which I'm not willing to do just for ESO, the only option I know of is to run Raidcall in a VM.  Am I correct or is there another way?

Thanks!

I've seen some wine wrap it but I'm not too familiar with the process.  Still twisting my contacts arms to get it available to Mac users.

I worked on it a bit with WINE and I thought I had it all working, but I didn't. I spoke to a couple of WINE Devs and they looked at it for me and basically said WINE cannot do it because of the way the newer mac clients work. If you had 10.6 maybe it would work better. But after 10.7 it is changed a lot. There is a lot of software we used for diagnostics and troubleshooting at work, none of it works with 10.8 and it is hit or miss with 10.7.

See what happens.

I've had to use TeamSpeak on Mac, haven't found a way to use Raidcall.

I have had this problem as well. 

In fact, it makes it nigh impossible to do much with the guild. I have played some PVE with many guildies, but when it comes to endgame content, or AvA, RC and a Mac do NOT peacefully coexist.

So my question is, what are my options?

I understand that RC is pretty much PC only. I cannot buy a separate PC just to run RC at this time.

I also understand that other forms of communication (Mumble, Ventrilo, Teamspeak) are either in use exclusively by the leadership, or have other limitations ($$$). 

This is becoming a limitation for me with respect to doing more with Gaiscioch. I enjoy the guild but am challenged by the feeling that I need to get in RC to really get to know anyone very well.

 

I suggest that, at a time when the guild is trying to grow, perhaps we could consider a more mainstream and modern voice system for general membership.

Runamok,

We tried this once and it ended up be footing a 200$ bill every month. I simply can not afford that expense in this economy. RaidCall is free and cloud based. Their is a Mac version in testing and I have met several people who have gotten it running on Mac. I just don't know how they pulled it off. If I ever discover that I would gladly share it. 

Once upon a time I was chummy with the CEO of UGT-Servers and he gave us a free account on Ventrillo. They since got bought out by Typefrag and he is no longer with them. If I had the means to get a sponsored server it is definately something I would look at, however Teamspeak / Ventrillo have horrid lag in high population situations and are prone to DDOS attacks. RaidCall does not have any of those drawbacks.

Right now I need to consider what is best for our budget and our size and RaidCall is it. I'm sorry if that is a deal breaker for you, it's the cards we've been dealt being the size we are.

Raid Call For Mac, wow forums the reason i provide this link, is i am wondering if there is any truth to the statement: "Using Raidcall under OS X (or Linux) is a ban-able offense according to the company behind the software. Several people who have been handling the WINE wrapper for OS X have had their accounts perm banned along with several users."

 

is there anyway we could encourage RC to move forward with helping the WINE aspect of things (thats probably where the issues are)? both the 2 chapters that are active are playing a game that plays on both mac and pc.  if RC isn't working well on both platforms, then it ends up with us excluding people from the mac arena just due to the voice coms solution we currently are using.

Fog,

I appreciate your response and want to be clear that I really enjoy Gaiscioch and what you all stand for. 

My intent was not to say goodbye, but rather to ask for help and/or understanding for not being more "involved". 

I ran a ventrilo ventrilo server for my guild in DAOC from a corporate network, but alas those days are gone. 

Booie, I've gotten the Wine wrapper to work for "listen only" but haven't tried the implementation you mention yet. Thanks for the link!

I'd like to be able to heal Vet DSA or AvA with some of you soon, and hope to work out the comms to make that easy/fun soon. 

Thanks all for not being judgemental about my using a Mac.

Runamok, 

The internet gods may have been listening to you on this one. A new potential opportunity approached last night and I'm going to feel it out. May be an end to you worry :). Can't promise anything yet, things are in the early stages but there is a ray of hope for this situation that I fully intend to explore. Keep posted for more.

Fog,

I don't know about the Internet gods but You made my day! GameVOX works SOOOO much better. I hope it scales and is equitable, but at first glance, it is several orders of magnitude better already!

Thank You all who made this happen.

 

Tmexx

It was sorta funny. I had been looking for other solutions for a while and reached out to a few companies to hopefully score a sponsorship a and like the day after I first responded to this gamevox contacted me. This solution is such a breath of fresh air. I was not looking forward to enduring the ddos attacks you get with ts|vent|mumble. Cloud based solutions are such a breath of fresh air.
