I'm sorry to hear you had trouble on the Discord, I do my best to help everyone.... I can't see any posts I've missed so what exactly did you struggle with?

You download the zip
Extract and run installer
Done

Or was it more how to use it with each aircraft?

If you want help - please post here https://discord.gg/Ajzxqxj And people will help.

Setup is around a minute for most people as the installer does it all

In MP when transmitting is the mic voice activated or do I use a hot key and is that key the "com" key or do I have to set up another key?

You can either use an option to have it tied to your com key, or use another key for push to talk. SRS is simulating real radio ops, so there is no voice activation.

Ciribob, I appreciate immensely your work and as a regular SRS user I don't find the instructions hard at all. However I am fairly technical savvy, so if you may I would suggest some changes to the release page on Github.

- Focus the first two-three paragraphs on instructions for end-users, not stuff about TCP ports and banned IPs which only affects server owners.

- Instead of putting the installer inside a zip file with a bunch of other files in it, just attach the installer exe itself directly onto the github release page, alongside the zip file for whoever wants to install manually.

- Ask for server owners who use SRS to announce the website you guys made - dcssimpleradio.com - in the server briefing so people who never visit the forums would be able to know where to get it. The website is well designed btw, and it is the first result if someone googles "DCS SRS".

- Whenever describing SRS on the website or Github page, try to not compare it to Discord or Teamspeak, because people who never used these softwares wouldn't then know what exactly it does. Perhaps saying "SRS introduces a realistic voice communication system into DCS that integrates with the aircraft radios inside the simulation etc etc."

I am only making these suggestions because it is frustrating to use this extremely well-made and useful tool and knowing some people just didn't went through the initial hurdles of getting it set up. For any new thing to be adopted we have to dumb it down the installation process as most as possible.

As I know that only making suggestions is easy but implementing them is hard, I offer you my free time to make these changes if you agree with them.

This. Mods are very difficult to deal with for most people. Then given that most people don’t use commas, any difficulty in dealing with this doesn’t prove to be worthwhile.
I personally avoid all mods in any game.

I take it you never ran the Aries Radio or UniversRadio TeamSpeak Plug-Ins?

They were/are completely brilliant. But in comparison, the "simple" in "SRS" really means simple, and I can't recommend SRS enough.

At first sight, it may not be perfectly obvious what it does or how it works. But setting it up is fairly simple, there's a lot of documentation available, the support here on the ED forum is excellent, and many DCS players will be glad to assist setting it up.

For starters, setting it up Grim Reapers style:

Explained: SRS Radio Installation & Setup


And then a cool example of how it can work with total strangers:

Ralfi's Alley - GCI in Blue Flag


If you have any particular questions, just go ahead and ask them here or on the SRS Discord and you should be set up in no time.
