(This is a setup guide for computer users. If you have an Android smartphone, you can try using Plumble – a mumble port which is easy to set up. You can get it on F-Droid or Play store (free version).)

Mumble is a simple tool but it's a bit tricky to make it work. Here is a step-by-step guide to set up mumble. (It is useful to have some headphones or simple earplugs that your microphone doesn't get the feedback of you speakers.)

First you set up the audio settings. The bars with the volume look a bit confusing and echoes make a lot of noise, but if you read carefully through the texts, it's not so hard in the end.

In the first window it should be like in the picture.

After you are done with the audio settings, you need to connect to the private biketour server.

The important boxes are Address - and Username - whatever you like. The Port should be given automatically.

Then you connect to the server and go to the settings.

In Audio Input tab you can choose in the Trasmit menu - Push To Talk. This will make you audible to others only when you push some key on the keyboard. It's a practical feature, if you have a lot of background noise which would just distract others and it also cancels any echoes you could get otherwise. (recommended when you don't have headphones)

Then in Shortcuts tab you have to assign a shortcut on your keyboard for Push to Talk. You can use for example the left control key.

For windows users, if you have some troubles with configuring Mumble, you can use this registry settings: Just double click the reg file and confirm. It should apply the settings above.

After all of this you should be ready to use Mumble!
