Download and install the Mumble client. Go through the mic configuration wizard. Go into the server list and add a new server. Address is superswordaction.com. Port is 5540. Get it? 554 = SSA (and 554 is already a registered port). Enter your forum username for Username. Servername doesn't matter, it's only how it appears to you in the server list.
Connect. If it promps you for server password, it's ssa_mumble. It will give you some message about a bad certificate from the server; don't worry about it, that's normal. Right-click your name in the channel tree and click Register. Choose the default option when it says stuff about generating a certificate. You can't talk in the lobby, you need to be in the main SSA channel, and to enter that, you need to be approved by an admin (I'm the only admin currently). Give me a poke on IRC or something and I'll approve you.
Don't forget to right-click your name and click Register.
Mumble server is no longer online due to lack of interest. If there's enough interest, I can start it up again.
What the ladder part of the vB plugin does is allow ladders to be created and managed. Once a ladder is created, ladder admins can assign matches and accept scores as they are reported. The system keeps track of wins and losses and also tracks ELO rating for each player.
I can think of two possible ways to use it. One would be with matches for a given time period predetermined. The other would be to allow players to challenge each other and then send the results to a ladder admin, perhaps with a certain minimum number of matches per month.
So...would a ladder system be fun? Or is it not needed?
