VAICOM PRO plugin for VoiceAttack


Recommended Posts

Hello, I purchased Viacom Pro, and it was working beautifully, then I installed SRS and now the AI commands aren't being recognized (even though VA is recognizing them and issuing the correct command over TX1). I have all SRS and Viacom settings as suggested in the manual.

 

It is working fine in single-player mode (with loacal SRS Server), but in multiplayer, the AI commands do not work. For example, if I say "request rearming", VA shows that it issued the correct command, but I don't get the rearming page.

 

The correct module IS listed in the PTT window.

 

THANKS!

I should add, the VoiceAttack cockpit commands that I have still work fine (I have a custom profile being called within Viacom), but the AI commands don't seem to be going through VA.

 

Also, what's weird is that last night, when I exited the server, the rearming/refueling screen appeared...as though it was there all along, but hidden (I had earlier issued a "request rearming" command through Viacom...but the window did not appear).

JTAC check in issue confirmed, thanks for flagging. Hotfix in build update 2.5.25.2.

A known issue with 2.7 at the moment - @Hollywood_315will be release a new version once 2.7 has settled down

Just wanted to say thank you to @Hollywood_315. Great app, bought the bundle which was an amazing price for what you’ve done. Tested tonight, AIRIO is smile inducing to say the least. My son jumped in

VAICOM doesn't use keyboard commands. It communicates directly with DCS. It only uses VA for the speech to text. That's why your plain VA commands still work. But it's strange that it works on SP abs not MP. Have you tried to reset the export.lua?

Cheers!

I have not. Candidly, I was overwhelmed by the number of posts and haven't read through all of them. I will find the process for resetting the export.lua. Thanks!

Thanks Max. So, I followed all of those instructions, but still no luck. I am in IT, so this isn't something that is very difficult (meaning, I am pretty certain I follewed the steps correctly). I have attached a screenshot of the VA log. As you can see, it recognizes the request and issues the command, but DCS is not receiving it.

 

Also, oddly, I mapped "Communication Menu" to my HOTAS Throttle, but nothing comes up when I press it. It seems as though something is blocking communications with the AI.

 

I would appreciate any help on this!

I have similar if not the same issue but without the SRS concern.SP works excellent but on some MP servers i cannot make refueling window to show.Also options command does not show comms menu.Its strange that on some servers works fine and some does not.Airplane Module on the ptt page is recognized only in SP and on the MP srevers that works.I dont know how to troubleshoot if it has something to do with easycomm server settings.Workaround suggested by MAXsenna doesn't work for me.I try several times.

I uninstalled SRS and am still having the issue. Also, I hear a dull "bonk" sound after ending transmission. It's strange that VA commands which control the cockpit (e.g., "radar out", "gear up", etc) work fine, but Viacom commands do no work. And, I can no longer bring up the communications window...so I cannot fly with Viacom running at this point.

Actually, it's not strange that VA still works. This is by design. When you say I.E. "gear up", Voice Attack sees that "gear up" is not part of the VAICOM keywords list, and passes it to next enabled profile in the list, which means that VA sends a straight keyboard command to DCS. Which then works fine.

There is something else at play here. Quite sure you did the correct procedure as you already told me that the correct module is shown in the VAICOM control panel, and is working in SP.

Have you tried to DL the RIO addon as suggested by Hollywood? Even if you don't have the license?

As for the Radio menu, have you selected to hide it?

Also, which module are you using?

I'll try MP later today, just to see if I have a similar problem.

And the "dull" confirmation can be disabled in the VA config, and since you hear it, that means you have setup a PTT button in VA. Not the same as any TX in VAICOM I gather. I did that mistake initially. No need for PTT to be setup in VA when using VAICOM.

Thanks so much for helping! I do have AIRIO (and its licensed). I have it enabled with "Show Messages" also checked. Hints Only and ICS Hot Mic are not checked.

Also, I have just confirmed again that everything works fine in SP, just not MP.

Tested MP now. Works. Though I had initially de-selected MP support. But the log told me immediately, so just checked the option, and worked straight away. No restart of VA needed.

But your log didn't show that, so I'm pretty sure you have it enabled.

So I play little bit more and i found out that on mp servers that does not work when i change to different module and different slot ptt window recognizes previously selected module and shows rearming window for it once i press fly button.

So. If I understand you correctly. At first it doesn't work. But then you change to another slot/module, and then the re-arming window pops up, and the incorrect module is shown in the control panel? Like it's delayed or something?

Exactly.But it doesn't seems to work every time like that.I didn't play online for a while so i will try revert dcs version and see if its latest beta that messed up something.

Maybe you guys should start a new thread. This sounds like one issue I have with certain modules in SP. Which module(s) are you flying BTW?

Okay thanks. Don't think I've had problems with those in SP, and the F-16 was the one I tested yesterday. If I have time I'll test the other two in MP later today.

Can you do me a favour? As a test, try to bring up the the re-arming window, and when it doesn't display, try the keyboard shortcut for the radio menu a couple of times. (Make sure that menus aren't hidden in the VAICOM settings though).

That's the issue I have in SP. It seems there is some delay in the communication between VAICOM and DCS, that gets sorted when I force the menu up. And since VAICOM uses network to send commands, and not keyboard shortcuts. Could it actually be a network issue, since you guys experience problems in MP?

Just a thought.

You are absolutely right that it should be network issue.I prepared myself for another day of troubleshooting this.Without touching anything since yeasterday i sit down and decided to give a try to what you suggested. But today same server same plane and EVERYTHING WORKS perfectly fine. I am not absolutely sure but i think the only change was server version.Do you know if that network problem is on my side of the cable and can i do something in the future if that problem happens again.Thank you MAXsenna for your help.

Really? Go figure! Well, glad it works again.

What I'm pretty sure of, is that it's not your Internet connection. I haven't dabbled to much in MP. And I only had issues in SP. So my theory is that the communication between VAICOM and DCS sometimes gets delayed, or rather qeued by DCS itself. Like a buffer that gets filled and can't clear, because the "door" is locked. But then, I force the radio menu with DCS commands, it's like the door gets opened, and all the VAICOM commands gets processed. I don't know, but this is what it feels like. And since you guys have issues in MP, maybe it's related. It's not that long ago MP stopped working for some people with disabled IPv6.

What I'm 100 percent sure of though, is that Hollywood can reproduce and get enough clues to what's happening, it will be sorted ASAP!

Cheers, happy flying!

Just to be clear. By work around. Do you mean hitting the DCS radio menu keyboard shortcuts, and that makes the VAICOM commands work if they are like queued up?

This is very interesting, as I've said. This is exactly what happens in some modules (primarily the Ka-50) in single player.

Do you have issues with the Options menu/commands as well?

Yes.It misbehave for rearming window and options menu.I did not go further than that.But i try most of the modules and its all the same.It is strange that it didn't work on one server yesterday but today it does.Maybe it some server setting but this is beyond me.SP is flawless.
