Voice Chat Client Suggestion
I have finally gotten the ol ball and chain to play borderlands with me (only took a year) and ever since she's been hooked playing it with me. We have our computers in separate rooms so we tend to have to yell at each other when we want to say something relating to the game. This tends to be hard at times as one of the rooms has an AC and sometimes can't hear the other one over it.

We want to use a chat client (voice chat) to be able to hear each other and was wondering what would be the best out there that is tailored to being on the same network (i know there is skype, vent, team speak) as we may not always have the internet up and running (intermittent connection here)

I remember using Vent to host a local server and assigning it a 192 IP used to work. If not, I'm pretty sure you can rig something up with Steam.

Steam's not an option as you can't use their voice chat program in offline mode.

Did a quick google search and found this http://www.12oclocker.com/soft/tinytalk.htm

edit-Scratch that, you can apparently use Mumble or Teamspeak to setup a server locally. Just what I'm reading but I haven't tried with either.

TeamSpeak - Downloads

setup a vent server on your network.

My friends and i use Skype. It's free and has great sound quality. My Battlefield clan uses TS3 which is also pretty good.

I'll take a look at setting up vent or team speak for a local connection.

NSDeadly, I'm guessing you didn't read the part where this is for local network online, no online accessed voice chat program

Not sure if Mumble can be local network online, but my old WoW guild used it and was pretty nice, amazing sound qual and less clunky than Vent.

For sure go with ventrilo, you can control so much with it and its very easy to setup a server on your local network as well (just remember you can never have over I believe 8 people when setting up your own local server.

Ventrillo or TeamSpeak would be the way to go on your local network.
