I am still confused. I never knew about the button at the bottom but I still do not understand what to do next.

After hitting reload and finish buttons in the Keyword Editor, a window pops up concerning the updated keyword database.
The 3rd paragraph states to double click the “AI Comms” command (category keywords collection) and clear all existing keywords in the “when I say” field and then apply paste to place the new keyword set and press apply when done.
I am a little confused on these instructions. Under the Heading Description, there are numerous AI Comms. Do you go thru each one or what?

Which is why you press the button I spoke of, as that combines all of those commands into one.

When you edit that command, as per the instructions in the manual, delete the current contents of the 'when I say' field, by first selecting the field, press Ctrl+a to select all of the content, and then press delete. Then paste the contents of the clipboard, that were put there by the FINISH command. Please note however, that when you have pasted the commands into that field, due to a bug in VA, you might not be able to see the. They are there though, so just think of it as magic.

The VAICOM installer is currently broken. The Radiothinger.lua is no longer in the /scripts/ folder but in /scripts/radiothingamibob/radiothinger.lua

I had to do the manual .lua hackery install. Thing does seem to work fine. Is there a log file somewhere I can check to see if the thing is OK?

Hey greyman, sorry for not getting back. I am going to try that this weekend and hope to get it sorted. Other than that, its working great.

Noticed that when I join a multiplayer mission, Viacom wouldnt reply to my requests. Is this due to the actual multiplayer mission or is there something I havent done? I will check if the missions have easy comms on or off, that could be it. If easy comms are set for the mission and i dont hear a reply, any ideas?

Update: Sorted by allowing UDP settings in router and making sure Multi has Easy Comms=yes Hooray!!!!!

I have been using Voice Attack for another sim, and finally decided to get it set up for DCS.
I decided to go ahead and purchase Vaicom Pro and use it for that purpose.

Wow I am impressed! Have started using it first in the Spitfire in Normandy. I have only scratched the surface but have had no trouble using it for my ATC so far communicating with the airfield. Very nice!

I look forward to learning more with it and eventually getting it going in some other modules I fly as well.

Thanks so much for this great program!

Welcome aboard! I was using another voice recognition program for the longest, but support for it has all but disappeared as far as I can tell especially when it comes to DCS 2.5.X. I had already purchased Voice Attack and Vaicom, but took the leap to Vaicom Pro when it released. Like you, my socks were blown off with the seamless integration with DCS and the vast improvement in voice recognition. With auto updates, it is becoming a thing I don’t even have to think about, which is good. It just runs. Have fun!

Do some of you Vaicom users also use the Chatter Theme Pack?
Curious about thoughts on it.

So I fly online using Discord. It´s configured so I don´t have a PPT button. The moment I begin speaking, my mates listen to me.
How could I set VoiceAttack up so, let´s say, I press a button, yell my command at VoiceAttack, but other people don´t listen to that.

Unless I´m mistaken, I need the same key to activate VoiceAttack AND mute Discord, is that correct?
