  • Make a shortcut to directly connect to tacticalgamer TeamSpeak server

    Here's how to make a desktop icon that when double clicked will launch teamspeak, connect to tacticalgamer, login, set your nickname and jump right to the channel of your choice.

    Right click on the desktop and select new then select shortcut.

    Where it asks you to type the location of the item put a customized version of this line:

    teamspeak://ts.tacticalgamer.com/nickname=FriedFish?password=********?channel=Battl efield%202%20Retail

    I'll breakdown the line so you can customize it to your own preferences.

    First each parameter is separated by a ?

    Second, since this is a URL, special characters will need to be properly encoded just as if this were a web link.
    See below for how to URL encode special characters.

    Third, here's a list of the available parameters:

    nickname= this should be your teamspeak nickname
    loginname= this is if you're a registered user on the teamspeak server, I'm not so I don't use this parameter
    password= this is either the server password if you're unregistered like me or your user password
    channel= this is the channel you wish to join when you double click the shortcut
    subchannel= this is the subchannel you wish to join
    channelpassword= if the channel has a password

    Finally, the server password can be found here.

    Now that you have all the info you can finalize your shortcut and call it whatever you want. If you're successful you should have a new desktop shortcut with a teamspeak icon. I hope this mini guide has been helpful.

    Quick URL encoding list:

    $ = %24
    & = %26
    + = %2B
    , = %2C
    - = %2D
    / = %2F
    : = %3A
    ; = %3B
    = = %3D (don't encode = that are part of the parameters)
    ? = %3F (don't encode ? that are used to separate parameters)
    @ = %40
    space = %20
    " = %22
    < = %3C
    > = %3D
    { = %7B
    } = %7D
    | = %7C
    \ = %5C
    [ = %5B
    ] = %5D

    (this list is incomplete, google url encoding for more info)

    ex: Battlefield 2 Retail = Battlefield%202%20Retail
    ex: |TG|FriedFish = %7CTG%7CFriedFish
