Sorry I haven't been updating.
I'm also still unable to use Vent, and am experiencing what feels like data coming in irregular bursts in MMOs (everyone freezes for half a second while my client waits for data. It's a killer in PvP in can tell ya).
It's a Catch 22 for me unfortunately because un-reliable vent got me benched by my team so haven't had much opportunity to test. Also not been playing as much over the last couple of weeks. And I'd don't wanna moan if I can't back it up with real world stats.
However, here are some other community threads that suggest the issues is still current for more than just a few of us.
"vent unusable atm (again)" - 11 June
"Ventrilo cannot maintain a connection for more than a few mins at a time" - 10 May
"I think it fluctuates dramactially and is not a steady stream" - 20 June
Plus of course the feedback in this very thread
I'm gonna log a ticket for myself probably this weekend because we haven't heard any more requests for data from Orcon in this thread. I think it's the right thing to do since Geekzone isn't really their official support channel. Not sure if there's anything else we can do as a community to help make it better.
I was thinking of asking if they can turn interleaving back on for me and take the latency hit for possible increased stability.
I will also try to do some Skype testing as it is a similar type of app. And of course I will try yet another clean install of Vent itself.
