  1. Do you mean, to deleted the following bindings? But I do need them, when VA is not recognizing what I have said. Then I can enter the comm menu manually and work via F1 - F10. When I use the comm menu, it seems I can only use the correct radio on the correct frequency. That works therefore how it should be on easy comms off. But not using TX1-3 via VA.
  2. So, got my sceenshots... Like I said, TX1-5 bindings work fine, as shown in screenshot, however, TX1-3 seems to work for different radios while doing my phrases.
  3. Yes, VA-Log shows TX buttons working perfect (press and release). Select tunes is not selected. I will post config screens this evening...
  4. Hello everybody, I have been using Vaicom successfully and without major problems for a long time. But I have to admit that up to now I always made life easy for myself and used Easy Comms, so only 1 button on my Hotas and so the whole radio was done automatically. Now the ambition has grabbed me to try it without Easy Comms and to set the frequencies also accordingly manually. But with the A-10C I have the following problem: Config as follows: Mic-Switch forward= TX1 = Num1 = VHF-AM Mic-Switch down = TX2 = Num2 = UHF Mic-Switch backward = TX3 = Num3 = VHF FM Mic-Switch up = TX5 = Num0 = INT (whatever you need it for!?) In the Voice Attack menu I have made the bindings to the above mentioned Num0-3 accordingly and programmed them to my Mic-Switch on the throttle. When I test TX1-5, the Voice Attack menu also shows me the correct bindings. The selector wheel in the VA menu is set to "normal", so TX1-3 and TX5 are active, TX4 (auto) is greyed out and not active. In DCS I have deactivated easy comms, in Voice attack I have also deactivated the other options like "Instant select" etc. When I start the game, the menu of Voice attack also shows easy comms OFF correctly. When I open the radio menu in the game with the key combination for Mic-Switch forward, down and backwards I can see that I can only reach the corresponding recipients via the correct radio band with the correct frequency. So far everything seems to work correctly. But using VA and saying my phrases while pressing the Mic-Switch on my throttle, it makes nearly no difference what Mic switch I press and still reach the recipient. As an example: If I set the frequency of the airport in VHF-AM and ask for take-off permission, I can reach the tower via TX1 and TX2 and TX3 (and no, in UHF and VHF-FM the frequency of the airport is not set). I can change the frequencies of TX2 and 3, as long as I have the right frequency in TX1 (VHF-AM radio) I can call the airport via TX 1, 2 and 3. Same with my wingman. In UHF I have set his frequency and I can reach him with TX2 but also TX3, but not on TX1. Changing TX3 (VHF-FM) frequency does not hinder me in calling the wingman via TX3, as long as TX2 (UHF) has the correct frequency. On the other hand with TX1 I can not reach my wingman (so that seems to work our correct). First of all I hope you understand what I mean and also that someone might have a solution. Cheers, MadMonty
  5. That line has been missing. Thank you so much for a very quick and helpful support! PS: Will pay attention to export.lua in the future, since after DCS updates the file has to be deleted in order to solve the popping up comms menu. That may have been the reason, why thing got broken up...
  6. Hey everybody, I have purchased TacView a couple of months ago. However, since approx. August I cannot replay my flights. I do have a zip-file of every single flight I have been doing (single player), but when opening those files, I do not see any planes, the video shows 0 secs of length. When I am opening my old files from July, everything is fine. Tacview is up to date V1.8.4, DCS Open beta also up to date. Any ideas? Cheers!
  7. Yes, it´s a common problem after a DCS update. You have to delete the export.lua file in the following folder: user\savedgames\dcs\scripts It ist NOT the folder, where your dcs is installed, but your user folder (normally at the c:\ drive) After deleting, the file will be created again when running DCS and VA and then it should work. If that doesn´t help, look at your vaicom-settings and check, if the assignment of your dcs-folder is correct, sometimes this also gets lost.
  8. As an SP-guy, I am naturally disappointed. But I think the open communication (even if it would have been better sooner) of ED is just great. That you, dear Kate, take the time to give a lot of answers and apologize at the end shows true greatness. Please keep it up! Mistakes will always happen and not everything will go as planned. But in the end, we still have one of the most beautiful simulations, which is just a lot of fun.
  9. Hey Trespasser, also I had mothballed my PC from 2009 for a long time. Since 3 years I'm back again and also started VR quite early (right at the beginning of Rift CV1). Since I fly privately VR is the best substitute drug of all - I never thought that something comes so close to real flying. So - whatever it takes to lift you into the VR world - it's worth it! Best, MadMonty
  10. So the last Update provided Air2Air Refuling for the flight - very nice! I found the order to refuel in the comms menu and asked my wingman to refuel. He confirmed, went to the tanker and took for just one second fuel. Then he went back to my wing. A short time later he reported Bingo fuel, so it seems that the refuling process did not work (as expected with less than one second being connected). Have I done something wrong or missed a step? PS: happend at Red Flag training mission by Sedlo Edit: Since this thread has been moved, let me add, that I am talking about an F-16 mission / flight (the update provided especially AAR for F-16 wingman)
  11. That´s not correct. Search for AP OFF within the Viper key settings and you can assign a button.
  12. An easy way to solve: First program your throttle (I do it via Target) as follows: AP UP = DX 10 (for example) AP MIDDLE = DX 11 AP DOWN = DX 12 Than enter DCS and set the bindings to AP Path = DX 10 AP Off = DX 11 AP Alt. = DX 12 Runs without any problems from the very first minute. You can also set keys to AP Path / Off / Alt. in DCS and programm those keys to your throttle. Either way... Important is, that the is AP OFF as an available command, so you can use it for the middle position of your switch.
  13. Always welcome! Nice videos on your youtube channel... I fly - unfortunately far too rarely - from the vicinity of Munich, Germany. We don't have a coast, but we have wonderful Alps. I don't have my own plane, but I fly from simple C172 to performance planes like Mooneys. Do you use VR in DCS? If not - you have to go for it. Nothing comes as close to real flying like VR - it´s simply amazing! Cheers, MadMonty
  14. Did you follow the INS coordinates confirm procedure? You have to select the coordinates and confirm them by pressing Enter within the first 1 or 2 minutes of the allignment. PS: Private pilote too :-)
  15. Having the same issue. Does uninstalling F15 + Su27 solve the problem? Has anyone tried so far? Just curious, as I won't be able to get to the PC before the weekend.
  16. Look at my post the page before - got it sorted out as follows:
  17. Got it sorted out. Vaicom has lost the path to my DCS World folder. Start Vaiocom, press strg+alt+c for Setup-Window, go to "Config" and set correct path at "use costum DCS path". Or watch the video: It seems like that also solved my starting problem somehow. Hope it helps you too...
  18. I still having some major problems with DCS 2.5.6 and Voice attack... I am using latest version of Voice attack, Vaicom pro and DCS open beta. 1st problem: My loading screen of DCS stucks at 10%. I always have to repair the installation of DCS and then getting the message, that "common.lua" and "speech.lua" are not the original version of the files (I know, that Voice attack is changing those files). After repairing the installation, DCS is running with Voice attack. But I have to repair DCS always, before starting it new. 2nd problem: Voice attack does recognize my phrases, e.g. "ATC, request take off" or "Flight, engage bandits". But nothing happens afterwards. Reading the log of VA, it tells me, that no recipient has been found...!? I am using easy comms in DCS and VA. I never had such problems before. Does anyone have a clue, how to solve the above mentioned problems? Many thanks in advance!
  19. Happend to me again yesterday, unfortunately no track available. But the moment I lost sound, I have activated time accelaration 2 times. Once again, only cockpit engine and gun sound has been gone, while I could listen to the radio. External view had all sounds available.
  20. Ran into the "no sound" problem today for the very first time. No sound in cockpit, but in external view. So I have flown 13 mission of the relict campaign without any problems. Today I tested the "operation secret squirrel" (https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/files/3306916/) and changed my missionscripting.lua as requested. After being shot down and taking the 2nd F86 I lost the engine sound during flight. So maybe it has something to do with the revised missionscript.lua, since I had no problems before!? Just a guess...
  21. Naja - CV1 hat 2160×1200 als Auflösung, Rift S 2560×1440. Das ist eine höhere Auflösung und kostet natürlich Performance, ich kann aber nicht sagen, dass mein Rechner dadurch in die Knie ging. Ich laufe wie gesagt ohne Probleme mit der Rift S und meiner Hardware. Du kannst ja problemlos die Rift S im Internet bestellen und ausprobieren (im Oculus Home bleibt Deine CV1 erhalten und Du bekommst die Rift S als 2. Brille angelegt). Var 1: Du behältst die Rift S - dann kannst Du im Oculus Home Deine CV1 irgendwann mal löschen und das Ding verkaufen Var 2: Du willst die Rift S doch nicht, dann 14 tägiges Rückgaberecht nutzen und in Oculus Home einfach die Rift S wieder löschen, die CV1 bleibt Dir dann unverändert auch im Oculus Home erhalten. Du gehst somit 0% Risiko ein, außer Dich in die Rift S zu verlieben :P
  22. Laufe auch mit einer 1080ti und einem I7700K @5GHz, jedoch 32 GB RAM. Bei mir läuft die Rift S nicht viel langsamer als die CV 1. Kann alles flüssig spielen...
  23. Bin letztes Jahr direkt nach dem Erscheinen von der Rift S auf diese umgestiegen (zuvor CV 1). Für mich ein deutlicher Schritt nach vorne, die Auflösung ist so viel besser, die Cockpits lassen sich wesentlich besser lesen, so gut wie kein Screen-Door-Effekt und Tragekomfort ist sehr vergleichbar zur CV1. Einzig der Sound stört mich. Hatte mir die Ohrstöpsel für die CV1 geholt, aktuell habe ich normale In-Ears mit Kabel an die Rift S angeschlossen. Das Kabel baumelt schon arg rum und kann manchmal wo hängen bleiben. Muss mir das noch irgendwie "hochbinden" oder nach alternativen Kopfhörern suchen. Ohne Kopfhörer geht bei der Rift S gar nicht, die eingebauten Lautsprecher sind mau. Im Gesamtpaket überwiegen die grafischen Vorteile aber um längen zu den (lösbaren) Problemen des Audio.
  24. I could not see the track either. But another problem could be, that INS has not been aligned fully / correctly. Does the GBU-38 shows "RDY" in DSMS? At the time I had the problems, my failure has been that I have been taxiing while INS was still aligning. As a result INS failed to align properly and the GBU-38 therefore have never become "RDY" to drop. Anyhow - just a guess..
  25. Arctander - you saved my day!! Thank you very much for your wonderful post. It's nice to read how much fun you have with DCS. And I read many parallels. I applied to the Luftwaffe, had top marks and a pilot's seat almost certainly, they noticed a heart defect and my life's dream burst. I had the chance to get my private pilot's license in early years, which is a lot of fun, but I am missing the A/A and the A/G mode in the Piper :cry: :D My rig looks a bit like yours, although mine is by far not as well equipped as yours (only TM Warthog and MFD, old CH pedals that are changed at Christmas and Rift S). Imagine I just moved a few months ago and my big dream is a 6DoF platform. It just lacks time and money, but at some point I want to realize it. And yes - I can totally understand one point with you. I myself have so little time (max. 1 evening per week) to play DCS and the worst thing that can happen is when something does not work. This refers to system- or hardware-related problems. As far as the airplanes are concerned, we are all free to fly those that work or are further developed. In this respect, it seems many of us want to protect the youngest babies of the developers... Believe me or not, but you just collected an incredible amount of sympathy points from me. I take my hat off to you, especially that you showed us all how much fun you can have here. Great!
