Welcome to the Auto Vidya General Wiki

Originally started in October of 2012, /ovg/ was the result of Forza 4 threads dying due to the release of Forza Horizon, and /o/ needing a place to talk about automotive vidya. /ovg/ functions as a place to talk about automotive vidya like everywhere else does, except we're on 4chan.

Download Mumble and install it. Make sure you have push to talk enabled.

Add a label for your own use and your username and you're done.

When connecting you'll get a warning about mis-matching certificates. That's just because I've used the get-good.net domain instead of the mumble host's domain.

How do I create a skin?

Check out RBDK's skinning guide found here, last updated 30-01-17: https://mega.nz/#!u0NG1Z6Z!98XZge6Hg9ma8WpZnkzqqxtgkA7PdykIJwJV03zkMjU
