TeamSpeak is a quality, scalable application which enables people to speak with one another over the Internet. The TeamSpeak 3 Client (TS3C) can be run under FireDaemon Pro as a Windows service. This is useful if you want to have the TS3C running prior to login, want to join a TeamSpeak server with specific options without having to remember the command line intricacies or to run the TeamSpeak 3 Client at a much lower priority or on a specific CPU or core so it doesn't interfere with your gameplay.

TeamSpeak 3 Setup Under FireDaemon Pro

Download and install the TeamSpeak 3 Client from the TeamSpeak website.

Download and install FireDaemon Pro into the directory of your choice, typically C:\Program Files\FireDaemon.

Next start the FireDaemon GUI from the desktop shortcut. Click on the "Create a new service definition" button in the toolbar (or type Ctrl+N) and enter the information into the fields as you see below. Adjust the paths to suit your installation. Note the required parameters.

The Parameters list defines which server the client is to connect to. The format of the parameters is similar to a regular web site URL and takes the form:

A slash (/) is required after the IP address or the name of the server. Each option=value pair must be separate by a question mark (?). Available options are as follows:
  • nickname:  your nick name on the service
  • loginname:  login name (if the server requires authentication)
  • password:  password (if the server requires authentication)
  • channel:    initial channel to join
  • subchannel: initial sub-channel to join
  • password:  subchannel password

If you wish to change the priority or the CPU binding of the TeamSpeak 3 Client click on the Settings tab. Here you might change the priority to high if you wish to maintain the quality of your audio whilst gaming or bind the TeamSpeak 3 Client onto one processor or core in order to free the other.

Now click OK and your TeamSpeak 3 Client will start up!
