[CSM] Mumble Positional audio w/ handler [mumble]

by sparky » Tue Dec 18, 2018 14:57

Info:
A friend of mine (chipgw) made a handler that receives client positional data from a csm and sends it to mumble for positional audio without having to make a custom build of minetest.

Installation:
(I made a video tutorial if that's easier.)
Install the csm (/minetestmod/mumble/)
Start mumble, the handler will have an error otherwise. Make sure Positional Audio and Link is enabled in Settings -> Audio Output and Settings -> Plugins. (Both need advanced options to be shown.)
Run the executable (in the releases) with the minetest program as an argument. (can be done easily with shortcuts in windows, and .sh files in linux)
After a few seconds after joining a world the terminal for the handler/minetest should go a bit crazy, outputting your players location and heading. If it dosn't, the csm probably isn't correctly installed.
After that Mumble should say in it's chat "Minetest linked" If it dosn't, double check your Mumble settings and make sure Positional Audio is enabled both in Settings -> Audio Output and Settings -> Plugins.

Github:
Browse
Releases (you'll need both the CSM zip/tar as well as the executable for your respective OS)

Nice! This is something that should really be in the engine IMO, but a CSM is the next best thing. Tell your friend he rocks.

I will :D
maybe if it's popular someone will take another look at adding it to the engine, who knows.

btw if anyone wants to do a demonstration video with me; let me know. It would be nice to have one for here as well as the tutorial video.

I love making Minetest videos, I'd be down to making a demo video with you.

EDIT:
Here's the video, https://youtu.be/6AsHD9h8IE8
I record Minetest videos, Mod reviews, Modding tutorials, and Lets plays.

This is the kind of stuff CSM should be used for.

lol yea, though it would be nice if there was some way to do this without the extra handler program without creating a possible security issue

Finally xD. I am a bit late to this party but I was among some of the first users to request this feature on Github years ago. Finally got around to checking up on it to see it finally exists lol.
DISCLAIMER: I am probably wrong.

Made a Discord for whoever wants to connect with other users of this mod, since the mod isn't much good with only one person. https://discord.gg/nG8ZgF9
