    VAICOM PRO plugin for VoiceAttack




    VAICOM PRO 2.5
    INTERACTIVE VOICE COMMUNICATIONS PLUGIN FOR DCS WORLD
    www.vaicompro.com






    VAICOM PRO (FREE/PRO) is a professional-grade voice communications interface, specifically designed and built for the DCS World combat flight simulation platform. The dedicated plugin uses VoiceAttack as client host for advanced speech recognition, enabling true-to-life realtime interactive radio communications with all AI units in the mission. Going far beyond conventional tools, the system uses deep lua integration with the DCS core to achieve unparalleled levels of simulation realism, mission effectiveness and immersion.

    No more menus! ​VAICOM PRO employs dynamic speech recognition for fast and direct radio comms with all AI units, replacing the cumbersome and immersion-breaking F-keys and on-screen menus. Forget the keyboard: you rely only on your microphone, HOTAS buttons and radios just like in real life. The plugin auto-configures for your aircraft radio systems for direct dialogs with coalition units such as Flight/Wingmen, AWACS, ATCs / Supercarrier units, Ground Crew, Tankers and you can even perform complex JTAC engagements all using unit callsigns and standard brevity.

    ​VAICOM PRO is context-sensitive: it works with and automatically detects all(!) DCS aircraft modules in a single self-configuring profile, usable both with Easy Communication settings ON or OFF. The system works with both Single Player (SP) and Multiplayer (MP) and features selectable Push-To-Talk modes. Enhance your experience further with Chatter Themes, the menuwheel-replacing AIRIO module (for F-14 Jester), and the new Interactive Kneeboard plugin extension.

    VAICOM PRO is freely extendible: easily add your own commands or daisy-chain entire other self-made profiles in VoiceAttack. Also, it is compatible: use it alongside your other favorite tools such as SimShaker and TeamSpeak and even have ready built-in integration with DCS-SimpleRadio (SRS).

    With its 100% keyboard- and menu-free comms, VAICOM PRO is the ultimate complement to your HOTAS and (VR or regular) headset. Get started with the free-to-download FREE edition and purchase your personal PRO license key to unlock support for all DCS modules and the complete range of options.​

        VAICOM PRO plugin for VoiceAttack

        Thanks, Hollywood. Will purchase once I get home from the office.

        I'm curious, is there any way I can update in a way that I merge/retain my current profile additions from the original VAICOM? For example I have added some phrases to your profile because VoiceAttack never understands me...for example, when I say "bogey dope" it thinks I say "bowl you don't" or any number of other things. Is it possible for me to easily merge these one off additions I've made? Or will need I need to manually add them?

        Thanks, and looking forward to PRO!

          @Skunk Thanks! Good luck with the wait and CU in a few weeks
          @Buckeye there are several ways to approach this, you'll find it in the manual.
          Most notably the plugin has a dedicated Keywords Training Mode to improve recognition.
          Check it out and catch me on PM if need help with it.

            Nice!

            I have had VA for a little while, used in another sim and have been meaning to get it set up for DCS, so good timing I think this would probably help me a lot getting things sorted for DCS.

                Hollywood,


                Have used the old version in the past. Just got your PRO version but I'm stuck on two things. The first thing is in the configuration it always shows as easy communications:on when its set to off in DCS (Both 1.5 and 2.2)


                With the radio set to the proper freq I say a command and get the confirmation beep but the command is never issued.


                Can you point my in a direction to try to resolve this. (A10C) I have attached a capture of the PTT config



                Thanks
                Eric

                    @eric can you update the page using the refresh button with the circular arrow. The (default) designation should change to A-10C and the correct easy comms mode should be shown. If it doesn't please catch me on PM and we'll have a look.

                      Button does not function. In fact when selecting any of the preferences like disable menus and player voice it has no effect.


                      Same issue with other planes.



                      I can see the commands being recognized and here the beep but nothing happens. This is with a fresh install of VA/VAICOM Pro. It has me stumped.




                      Sorry, just saw the PM part.

                          I'm getting the same thing with the Pro paid version.

                          On PTT radio mapping page, the refresh arrow doesn't do anything, and every aircraft says:
                          active DCS module: (default)

                          As well, loading up the initial test mission as directed, I get zero responses and only once or twice have I received a cofirmation beep after the initial short burst of static, but no freq's have changed on the A10C VHF AM radio stating, for example "Anapa...Select" while on the runway at Suhkumi.

                          Lastly, I did further voice training and Anapa was recognized and saved, but editing as per instructions, there is zero text to CTRL A, DEL and then CTRL V over.. strange...

                          Any ideas?

                          I use HCS Voice packs for ED with no issues so have a good understanding on VA and native English speaker...

                            Hi Spetz

                            If the refresh button does not update the PTT page this means that there is some connection issue so the commands will have no effect like you're experiencing. I'm sending a PM for a few details to see how we can get it sorted.

                            Thanks

                                Thanks this is helpful. You're having a socket load error in DCS.log same as the one Eric is having.
                                It seems that this could be related to your DCS installation paths (e.g. E:, G: drive in these cases) where certain modules cannot be found in the paths where they are expected.

                                I'll be looking into it and get back to you asap.

                                [UPDATE] SOLVED

                                I reproduced the problem and the plugin download file on the website is now fixed.
                                If you have an existing install please first remove the VAICOMPRO folder with contents from Saved Games/DCS/Scripts
                                and then replace the vaicompro.dll with the new download from the website. Restart VoiceAttack.
                                Let me know if this resolves it thanks.

                                  Hey mate, looks great. Two things, is the chatter extenseion completely new or something that you feature in a video somewhere? I'd like to get an impression of it first, before i decide whether i go with the full package or not. Additionally, i'd make an additional mention in the faq section on the website about this being build with Voice Attack in mind. Its listed on the main page, still some people might overlook it there.

                                    He neo - thanks! Yes I plan to put out a YouTube brief walkthrough clip in the next day or two-
                                    I'll try to put in a flavor of the chatter function as well (btw you can get it separately anytime later).
                                    Good idead about the FAQ - I'll work on a page update there.

                                      hrm on that note. Does the chatter extension contain actual 'in contact' combat chatter, or just general day to day operations overnet talk?

                                        [UPDATE]

                                        I reproduced the problem and the plugin download file on the website is now fixed.
                                        If you have an existing install please first remove the VAICOMPRO folder with contents from Saved Games/DCS/Scripts
                                        and then replace the vaicompro.dll with the new download from the website. Restart VoiceAttack.
                                        Let me know if this resolves it thanks.
                                        Thanks. I'll have a run at it after work today.

                                        Cheers and thanks for the uber-fast help!
