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 without rules, regulations, or bias, as is the norm with most racing vidya forums.

Mumble Server[edit]

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

Click Server > Connect > Add New

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 domain instead of the mumble host's domain.
