    Does anyone know how to get Ventrillo to run in apps other than the Ventrillo app? I'm playing Guild Wars 2 and Vent only works when I have Vent as the current app.

    I'm running 10.7.4.

    i think you have to click on something in the "accessibility control panel" under System Preferences in order to get Vent to work. Its been years since i've used vent tho

    What do I do in Universal Access to use Vent??

    I clicked "Enable access for assistive devices" but I can't figure out what else to do... help!!

    I haven't used Ventrilo for a while.. But back in the day it only worked for me in BF1942 by using the CMD key (next to spacebar). When I tried keybinding push-to-talk to another key it didn't work in game.. Hope it works =).

    Are you running other than your book? I can't speak for ipad but your book should work fine. I run vent on my mini (lion) just fine. I opted to use ptt rather than vox but it seems to run fine. If you like, I could check my settings and post them for you.

    Could you post which computer you're running on? Should run fine on your book but I can't comment on using a pad, other than a guildie had some issues as well. I don't think he ever got it totally figured out; seemed to be flakey and couldn't reproduce problems.

    If the problem persists and you are looking for alternatives I would recommend Mumble. It runs on OSX and due to the way it works it actually has less latency and better sound quality than Vent (so better for gaming!).
