Default R_828.lua, R828 presets and TARS


Where are the R828 preset frequencies defined? I've been searching quite a lot for the answer to this, but couldn't find it either on here or on Google.

Most seem to point to the R_828.lua file. Here's what mine says:
DCS World\Mods\aircrafts\Ka-50\Cockpit\Scripts\R-828\R_828.lua:

squelch = true
volume	=	0.5
channel = 0

presets = {}
presets[1] = 35654000.0
presets[2] = 25675000.0 -- radio Mayak
presets[3] = 48543500.0
presets[4] = 35657500.0
I have not manually modified this file in any way. Neither have I installed any mods. Previously there used to be ten different presets, but as of later versions of DCS there are only these four.

However, when I go in-game with TARS enabled and try to tune the various presets on my R828, my TARS status panel readout shows the following frequencies:
  1. 35.650
  2. 25.675
  3. 48.550
  4. 35.650
  5. 58.400
  6. 46.400
  7. 42.700
  8. 37.725
  9. 46.325
  10. 22.975

As you can see, the first, third and fourth frequencies do not match the contents of R_828.lua. And where do presets 5 through 10 come from since they're not defined in the file?

What's going on here?

Well, it is not anymore a problem now those presets can be setup in the mission editor directly without having to dig into the lua files.

Send a message via MSN to JG14_Smil

As Bad_CrC says, it is done in the Mission Editor. The lua file is then packed with the mission.

A nice touch to see after three years off.
