@Hollywood_315

I was reading the online PDF and saw the bit about the Kneeboard expansion on page 43. Any ETA on when this will be released?

 

Today:) - new version is available for manual download and install from the Vaicom website. You will need to purchase the Kneeboard Extension licence to use the interactive kneeboard. I can confirm that the new version works with A10C II HAWG and TUSK callsigns, so assume the other pig ones will work as well

You don't realise what you've got until it's gone. I've missed Vaicom.

Sorry, I guess I'm dense, but I'm not seeing it on the downloads page of the website. OFC, I'm also not seeing the Realistic ATC extension either, which I know is released because I have it.

 

EDIT: NVM, found it on the licenses page. :doh:

I see no reason why not. VAICOM interfaces directly with DCS and not the module (exception: F-14 which is what AI RIO is for). VAICOM is mostly used for comms, which is straight DCS. I'll give it a try to be sure, though. You should be able to test it with free VAICOM.

 

from the FAQ page

Q: Can I use it with my favourite DCS module?

A: Yes. The FREE version supports a specific range of DCS aircraft. The PRO version works with all DCS modules including future aircraft module releases. Refer to the Features page to see the supported modules listing.

 

EDIT: While the A-4 doesn't use radio comms, I just confirmed that VAICOM works with the ground crew interaction. I just used it to place/remove wheelchocks and rearm.

@Hollywood_315 I'm having issues with the Kneeboard extension.

 

I just installed it and re-applied the voice commands in VoiceAttack to take advantage of the new "Kneeboard" command. When I would say "Kneeboard" it would usually not recognize the word or it would recognize "the board."

 

I also exited out of VA and restarted VAICOM to see if that would fix it. No joy. Then I added the "Blue Brains" command phrase to the Kneeboard command and reapplied the commands to VA.

Now VA would hear "blue brains" but the phrase is unrecognized. Compare that to "Scan Range 100," which works and demonstrates that VAICOM is working properly.

As you can see from the first screenshot, I'm using the latest version of VAICOM, and VSPX is enabled. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

There's a note on VSPX in the manual kneeboard section (page 44). The Kneeboard toggle voice command works in standard recognition mode only at this time (i.e. non-VSPX). Planned to be added to VSPX later. Rest works mostly the same in both modes.

I've just been helping a buddy update his keyword commands. The FINISH button won't copy his commands to the clipboard. Mine worked, his didn't. Any ideas?

 

Is it that they won't copy to the clipboard, or won't paste into VA? TO test, open notepad and try pasting the contents there after clicking Finish. If they paste there, then try copying them from there and pasting into the VA profile. This worked for me the one time I encountered this issue

Hi,

 

I'm running VIACOM latest build with the A-10C II in Syria map, i keep getting this error and no commands are being sent to the sim from what i can tell? Even with simple commands like "2, go spread" etc.

 

"1:00:06.254 UNABLE TO INVOKE PLUGIN, 'VAICOM PRO 2.5'. DUE TO EXCEPTION: 'VoiceAttack.VoiceAttackInvokeProxyClass' does not contain a definition for 'Dictation'

 

Have done a web and forum search but nothing useful found so far to fix this?

 

Any help appreciated.

 

Thanks v much.

To confirm. It will not copy. Already tried the Notepad. The clipboard is empty. Tried it several times but no luck.

The Huey has 3 radios, UHF, VHF and FM, when using the Select 251.0 voice command while pressing the UHF PTT, I'm able to tune the UHF radio. But I can't do the same for the VHF and FM radio. "Select tunes radio" and MLT is selected, Easy Comms off. Anyone has any idea how I can use Select to tune the other radios?

When you click Finish, don't close the Config Window. Go direct to Profile edit then paste the copied keywords. I think closing the Config window will clear your clipboard.

Oh, you mean that whenever you go to the "Editor" tab, the "RELOAD" and "FINISH" buttons are highlighted in orange? And you click "FINISH" and do the "song and dance" cut&paste in the Voice Attack profile...

 

I get this quite a bit. Just to clarify, what is the right procedure?

 

Hit Reload and then Finish, and then paste in the profile?

Hit Finish and paste in the profile, and then come back and hit reload?

Ignore Reload altogether and just Finish + paste?

Something else?

 

Thanks for any guidance.

 

 

Also, when I hit Finish and close the preference window before I go to paste, the clipboard seems empty, but it seems to work if I leave the preference window open.

Sometimes the "Finish" will be highlighted even no changes have been made. If you know you haven't made any changes yourself or VAICOM hasn't been updated, it's probably safe to ignore. And unless you have selected the import F10 menu option, there is probably no change.

Click the test/verify in the editor, and it will tell you in the Voice Attack log.

By preference window, you mean the Control Panel? Didn't know it viped the clipboard on closing it. I always have it open anyway.

As for procedure, click FINISH and OK on the pop-up. Head over to Voice Attack and edit the VAICOM profile, and delete keywords and paste. (The complete procedure is in the pop-up, isn't it).

Hope this helps.

Cheers
