How to connect to Condor Servers

Check out the official Condor Server List: https://www.condorsoaring.com/serverlist/ - this will show servers ready for you to connect. 

On that list there are [JOIN] buttons next to each server.

When you click the [JOIN] button, condor should start and bring up the multiplayer screen with the "CONNECT TO" Host address already filled in.

If there's a password, enter that and click [join] 

If the host address is empty (it happens) then close condor and click on the [JOIN] button on the server list webpage again.

Setting up Voice Comms

 

Head on over to https://discordapp.com/download and get a copy of the Discord App for your type and style of PC/Mac. For windows you will need Win7 or higher.

Sign up and sign in to Discord - it's free!

Our Discord Server for Beverley and WA pilots is called soaring-aus-wa

Connection to the Discord Server is by invitation only. Make yourself known to the organising team and we'll get you connected.

Once you're in the server, there will be one or more voice channels (probably called General) - click on the name of the voice channel to get connected. If you need to change your audio device or want to set up a push-to-talk, click on the gear icon next to your name in the bottom-left and find "voice and video settings" - adjust until you're happy.
