  1. Hi,

    DCS crashes the moment I start Dictate mode and actually try to dictate something with the Kneeboard extension (open beta 2.7.8.16140). Is this a known issue or am I doing something wrong?

     

    Regards, Marcel

  2. Hi,

     

    Guess you are running VoiceAttack on your 2nd monitor? There is indeed a very irritating issue that it the does not open secondary windows like the one from VAICOM PRO correctly in that case.

    Ways to workaround it:
    * Open/move VoiceAttack to your primary monitor and then press the lctrl-lalt-c combination (and if you want it on another monitor move it after it is opened) (note this does not work if config window was opened on 2ndery monitor before, than that location was stored)

    * If you opened the config window but it does not show:

       - click the VoiceCommand icon in your Windows task bar

       - notice there is now also a "VAICOMPRO for DCS world" line

       - right click that line a menu appears

       - in that menu left click "move"

       - now press the left arrow key on your keyboard

       - config window can now be moved while moving your mouse and left click will drop it there

       - note: if dropped on the 2ndary monitor next time you have to go through this again, if you move it to the 1st monitor the location will be remebered and next time it will open there and show (but that is perhaps not what you want 😉 )

  3. If I may ask is the walkman working in the latest beta? At least it does not crash DCS I if activate play but I get no sound. Copied a few SongX.ogg files into the VigWalkman folder and tried with and without "hear like in helmet" and used the "volume up" to increase volume.

  4. Hi,

     

     

    Is there a way to set the gamma relatively? What I mean is for me the parts in bright sun are too bright but the parts in the shadow are unrealistically dark, making it impossible to read parts of the cockpit that are in the shadow.

    So I want to make the bright parts a little less bright while at the same time making the darker parts a little brighter. Is there a way to do this?

  5. Hi,

     

     

    Perhaps this is a dumb question but what does exactly the following part from the release notes mean?

     

    Removed SPJ pod station limitation, but if mounted more, jam power will be reduced drastically.

  6. Hi,

     

     

    I really can't stand the water reflection shimmering. It makes the view very unrealistic and constantly draws your attention to it. Is there a way to turn off the water reflections? I tried all kind of settings but nothing seems to help.

  7. Hi,

     

     

    First played lasts beta without this mod when it was not available, then realized how much I need it, the shimmering shadows drive me nuts. ;)

    If only there was a way to get rid of the shimmering water reflections...

    But thanks for this great mod, could not play DCS without it!

  8. Hi,

     

     

    I searched the forums already and found indeed that the UHF radio's are not supposed to work before the engines are running (at least one of them or use external power).

    I was a bit surprised that loss of both engines in air (running out of fuel, indeed not smart but it does happen ;) ) means you also lose the radio's.

     

     

    I did a bit of reading and aren't the radio's supposed to be fed by the essential bus in that case (on battery)? UFC is then not working but the channel selectors icw the radio's could be fed by the essential bus. Or is this indeed incorrect and is no generator -> not radio at all?

  9. @huppel To contact JTAC use 'Playtime 20 minutes' etc. see ref. tables.

     

     

    Thanks, did some tests and it works now! Did not know I could (should) skip the "checking in" part (used to work in the past, I always followed what is (currently) on page 41 of the manual where it is included, perhaps better to remove it there).

     

     

    One more question: just using " 'recipient', options" to get the menu and then use "take x" to select an item from the list indeed does not work. Is this on purpose? I always thought it is a nice workaround if I did not know what to say and I thought it worked in the past.

  10. Hi,

     

     

    I seem to have a problem contacting jtac (think since last update but cannot exactly remember when I last tried it).

    I can send the request and also hear my command being played but there is no response. I also tried using "jtac options" and then "take 1" but with the same result. When I'm not running viacom and play the same mission using DCS menu communications everything works fine.

    I noted that I sometimes see the following (strange?) line in the VoiceAttack window, might that have something to do with it? :

     

     

    9:10:29.773 To use carrier communications, activate your Eagle Dynamics Supercarrier module license.

    9:10:29.769 Recognized : 'checking in'

    9:10:27.709 (awaiting additional input)

    9:10:27.705 Recognized : 'axeman'

  11. Correct a good post. I've attached a couple real world images that illustrates the limitation of a 2D view.

     

    Thanks

     

     

    Ah, I'm playing in VR and never even realized this with the new cockpit. But when I close one of my eyes indeed part of the HUD is gone ;)

    With both eyes open I can see the whole HUD. View for VR users is perfect now, hope if it will be changed this view will be made an option

  12. Thanks for the new update!

     

     

    When I try to import the "Viacom pro airio.vap" to update the copmmands I get an "Error loading profile data. [There is an error in XML document (1,1).] Data at the root level is invalid. Line 1, position 1." error message. Am I doing something wrong? Should I first delete some old commands?

     

     

    Best Regards,

  13. Hi,

     

     

    I can't figure out how to place the throttle handle into the shutoff position. Whatever I click, although the uncage handle goes down, I cannot get the throttle into the backward position. I there a way to do this?

    BTW can we please also have device binds for getting the throttle to the on and off position?

     

     

    Best, Huppel
