Latest News :: Version 3 = Audio Chat = Live!!
Posted on March 19, 2013 by CodeJunkie

Oh yeah, you heard that right! Audio chat is now live. Download the latest client and enjoy this awesome new feature. Server admins make sure to snag the latest server. For Linux users there is now a Debian package and a tar.gz archive available for download for the server and client.

Client Changes

  • Added integrated audio chat using TeamSpeak 3 SDK!
  • Corrected code that writes the log file for the first time. It now sets the correct permissions under Linux.
  • Log file is now just "cgaclient.log" with no date.
  • Re-added the client configuration program. It can be executed using the -c or --configre command line arguments with the CGA Client. Its settings are saved per user in the .cgaclient/conf folder under their respective user profile folder.
  • Push-to-Talk audio chat feature added. (Windows only)
  • Linux users: The PID file path, config path and dosbox path can now be set in the new cgaclient shell script used to launch the CGA Client for Linux users. Located in /usr/bin.
  • Now reports its OS to the website.
  • CPU settings are now passed to DOSBox from the website.
  • Video hardware setting is now passed to DOSBox from the website.
  • Now supports the config file for Elder Scrolls: Battlespire.
  • Client will now edit game config files in single player and setup mode if needed. (Screamer 2 and Elder Scrolls: BattleSpire)

Server Changes

  • Added integrated audio chat using TeamSpeak 3 SDK!
  • Corrected logic in TCP listener threads so they shutdown properly. This issue was only noticeable under Linux, however it also improves shutdown time.
  • Log path is configurable from the cgaserver.conf file for Linux users.
  • Now reports its OS to the website when it is polled by the master server.
  • Linux users can now utilize the "service" control scripts to start, stop and query the status of the server.

Website Updates

  • Client and server change logs are now viewable by clicking their respective versions at the top of the site or from the Help section.
  • Updated the Help section to bring it up-to-date with the latest client, server and site features.
  • Server admins can once again edit their servers
  • When registering servers public and private hosts/IP addresses are now enforced. CGA and Open Relay servers will have to be a public host or IP address and CGA (LAN) servers will have to be a private IP address.
  • CGA (LAN) servers can now specify their max connections.
  • The client configuration program can be launched via the "Config" link at the top of the site next to your client's version.
