1. Preparations

1.1. Download

The current version of TSNotifier can be downloaded from http://tsnotifier.cfxxl.de. You either need the installer or the zip-version.

1.2. Installation

Installer: Just double-click the installer and follow the instructions.
zip: unpack the zip archive to a folder on your harddrive.

1.3. Prepare TeamSpeak 3

To make TSNotifier work with TeamSpeak 3 you have to install the TSNotifier HelperPlugin first. From version 1.3.9. onward this should already be done by the TSNotifier installer. You can ignore the next section unless this didn’t work.

1.3.1. Manually install Helper Plugin

Variant 1:

Right click the TSNotifier tray-icon and select Update HelperPlugins…. If this doesn’t work use variant 2 below.

Variant 2:

Download TSNotifier Helper Plugins from http://tsnotifier.cfxxl.de. Now you open the zip file and copy the 2 files into your TeamSpeak 3 plugin folder (C:\Program Files\TeamSpeak3\plugins\). Now you open the zip file and extract the file that corresponds to your TeamSpeak 3 installation (32/64bit) to any folder you like (e.g. to your desktop). Double-click the extracted file. This should install the plugin. After that you start TS 3 and open Tools – Options – Addons…. Here you aktivate the TSNotifier HelperPlugin (if necessary). Now TSNotifier should work with TeamSpeak 3.

2. Usage

2.1. Starting the program

If you used the installer, you should find a new group for TSNotifier in the startmenu. Here you click TSNotifier shortcut to start the programm.
If you used the zip-Version, open the folder you extracted the archive to and start TSNotifier.exe (TSNotifier_64.exe should never be started directly).
No matter how you started the program there should be a new icon in the system-tray.

2.2. Configuration

Right-click the tray-icon to open a context-menu that offers various settings. Here you can change language-settings, colors and display-position of speakers etc.

2.3. Adding a game to the gamesettings.ini

To allow TSNotifier to display anything ingame, you have to add the game the whitelist. You do that like this:

  1. Start TSNotifier.
  2. Start the game.
  3. Quit the game.
  4. Right-click the tray-icon and choose Edit gamesettings.ini…
  5. This should open gamesettings.ini in your text-editor. The gamesttings.ini look like this:
    [game.exe]
    game.enabled=0
  6. One of the last entries should be for your game. Set enabled to 1.
    [game.exe]
    game.enabled=1

    Important: For most games you’ll also find entries for launchers. Usually, you don’t need to enable these.

  7. Start the game again. There should be a text showing that TSNotifier is active.

  1. Hi Andreas,
    The new installation file (or running createfileassoc.exe… or both) WORKED! All’s good now! Thanks for your patience and assistance Sir.

  2. Hi!
    Is it possible to set exact speaker position (in pixels) not just top-right/top-left/etc?

    1. you can set the position on a per game basis by editing the gamesettings.ini.
      speaker.position=-1
      logscroller.position=-1
      possible values:

      -1: Ignore(use setting from TSNotifier)
      0 : Top-Left
      1 : Middle-Left
      2 : Top-Center
      3 : Center
      4 : Top-Right
      5 : Middle-Right

      If you want to finetune the position use these settings:
      speaker.offsetX=0
      speaker.offsetY=0
      logscroller.offsetX=0
      logscroller.offsetY=0

        1. you can uses the font.name and font.size settings in your gamesettings.ini to change the font.
          e.g.
          [game.exe]
          game.enabled=1
          font.name=Arial
          font.size=24

  3. I’m unable to make this software works.
    I copied both plugin files in my plugin directory, but then in the plugin menu I don’t see TSNotifier.

    I have TS3 version 3.1.0.1.

    Also if I do an “update plugin” from tsnotifier, the black box says it cannot find TS3.

    Thanks

    1. don’t copy the plugin-files anywhere. you need to double-click the one that corresponds to your ts3-installation to install them.

  4. Hi
    I use TSnotifier many month ago at Lineage 2 Core oficial server but now it’s seems not work with L2. Can somebodycheck it?

  5. is it possible to have bold or normal fonts, can you give a list of all .ini parameters ?

    1. bold fonts are not possible (they are used internally, so right now they can’t be added as an option).
      I wanted to create a list of all the possible .ini settings for a while now but somehow I always manage to forget. Someday it will happen. Or I will actually get around to creating real dialogs, so editing the .ini-files won’t be necessary anymore.

  6. Hi! Cool plugin, but i have a couple of questions on setting it up:

    I like the option when I can see all users in channel. That is “Also non-speaker” ON.
    But there is one problem: when users of more than 20, it uncomfortable. Because they take up too much space on the screen, even with the smallest font.

    In this regard, it would be cool to have following settings:
    1. Set the limit of maximum displayed users in the channel.
    2. Set the distance in pixels (vertical) between nicknames.

    So, the question is: are these settings already exist? Then tell me, how to customize this.
    If not, do you plan to add something like that?

  7. Hi, Great plug in! Thank you.
    I keep seeing this message in TS3:
    “A TSNotifier installation was found in E:\TS Notifier. The version of that installation(1.6.0c) is lower than the current TSNotifier Helper Plugin version(1.6.0d). This might cause issues, please consider updating TSNotifier.
    The newest version can be downloaded from http://tsnotifier.eu/.”

    1. You get that message because you downloaded the HelperPlugin from MyTeamspeak. That version is newer(1.6.0d) than the last release of TSNotifier(1.6.0c). That version-check message is the only thing that’s new in 1.6.0d, which is why I didn’t release a new TSNotifier version.
      In other words: For now you can ignore that message.

  8. is there a way to make chat stay longer ? because its almost impossible to read chats in 1 or 2 seconds
