Ripcord: a less slow discord client
Still early days and pretty messy to use, but someone has gotten around to making a discord client that uses less than all the system resources (on the potato-like machines I often play on): https://cancel.fm/ripcord/
May be good to know for anyone similarly afflicted, but do note that it is a pretty convoluted process to set up yet, and I haven't really tested it out fully (notably it does not yet support putting PTT on a mouse button).
Discord is trash, so anything that makes it less trash is welcome
Pretty obligatory these days though if you intend to ever play multiplayer games with new people to any degree beyond the ones one is faced with once in random matchmaking.
Will be interesting to see what happens when Discord, the company, runs out of venture capital though. I don't think it is that expensive to host it really, people overestimate it, but they'll want some way of turning a profit.
oh yeah it's pretty mandatory but still meh. Lag half the time, shitty quality compared to voip programs like ts or w/e , but at least you can adjust individual volume unlike mumble (always been one of the biggest advantages of ts over mumble)
