    Subject explains this well enough really. This is a recommendation to allow use of tools to play music whether it be SLAM, HLDJ, HLSS or even a mixer. I was a regular on HellsGamers and this was one of my favorite parts. As it was a controlled part of the gameplay, it was respected and was actually quite enjoyable.

    As long as it is respected and moderated properly, I don't see an issue with it. This recommendation is mainly for Jailbreak in which there is a warday, freeday or last request.

    If the concern is that this will be abused I can recommend that "DJ's" are pre-approved so that it can be closely moderated.

    Dj's are already pre-approved, there is DJ role and radio.

    https://hellclan.co.uk/forums/38/ if you wanna apply

    Slam etc etc virtual cables are banned for a very obvious reason, they are crap. Music thru microphone is compressed to awful carbage. this can be 32-128kbps and 8-48khz depending on the connection of the source and the receiver.

    I mean, as stated. The idea is that software or audio equipment is used to ensure quality. I have been a member of a server that used to get a lot of players in and it worked just fine as everyone had a mutual respect.

    Bump. I really want this to be experimented with. I believe this is the time to do it with a lower play count. I believe this will work well as long as rules are harsh on poor use or if people take advantage. There is always a decent amount of staff on. Or alternatively don't allow HLDJ just allow music if it can be played through mic directly on high quality (for example with a mixer or Virtual Audio Cable) which will be rare as most people dont have or have a reason to have those facilities.

    I'm sure quite a lot of people here know that when it is late and there are less players I play music and most people generally appreciate it. In th rare case it bothers someone the music goes off.

    It had worked for HellsGamers since 2005 and it was actually a big draw in.

    I do use my soundboard when there is few on (eg 14) and some others do. I do agree people will spam but it can lift an atmoshpere for a few.

    CPU with the self report. Congrats.

    If you want music then play some. This is a shocking idea, If I listen to musical theatre do I expect everyone else too? No I don't and I don't want to listen to your favourite Kpop band or thrash metal. It will turn people away and people will end on on the forums requesting unmuting constantly.

    If you want to listen to music join the discord and request a song on there or play music in the background.

    Or just join discord and use one of the many music bots there.

    We had it many years ago before we got HeLL FM Which is now gone.

    It was spammed back then, It was used incorrectly etc.

    Yes it did make the server more fun on occasions but it also has a backlash.(For NARNIA!!! AND FOR ASSSSLAAANNNN!)

    Its a NO from me, Sorry.
