Hi all,

 

I'm having some weird issues with VAICOM PRO..

 

VAICOM seems to force my DCS to switch to easycomms.. Even though I have unchecked the easycomms options in DCS.

 

I tried uninstalling VAICOM from DCS, repairing DCS and launching DCS alone; The easycomms were correctly disabled.

But as soon as I reinstalled VAICOM PRO (via a reset, relaunch, reinstall), and then relaunched DCS, the problem appeared again.

 

Moreover, seems that the "update" button does nothing wether I'm flying the 2000, FA18 or TF51..

It's allways in default mode/easycomms on..

 

Does any of you have a clue of what's going on?

assuming you are beta user?

I have re-installed DCS today from scratch, and can confirm that as soon as I installed beta over the top of release, the comms menus in general don't work partially or at all in some cases(at least in the A10C), this is without any lua alterations for VAICOMPro. I just don't think it's stable enough to expect anything comms-wise to work reliably.

i've just flown a refueling instant mission in the F18c and comms with the tanker was interesting. I had setup the tanker's frequency on radio 1 and when i pressed the PTT button for comm1 and said "tanker approaching to refuel", it beeped and nothing else, until i pressed the PTT for comm2, and then it said "request join" or something like that. If i repeat the comm1 messages, as i said in my earlier post, then repeatedly pressing comm2 appears to clear out a queue/buffer, with VAICOM saying all of the stored messages.

 

If i were to guess, i'd say that the automatic module import function has somehow got its wires crossed on the PTT buttons, as it looks like it is using the release of the comm2 PTT button to activate the command rather than the release of the comm1 PTT button.

 

As i might just have confused it, would it perhaps be worth me restoring to the factory defaults, ie without the Hornet, and then trying again?

 

Edit: it's just been reported in the ED forum that there might be some confusion between the comm1 and comm2 PTT switches and if the comm1 processing is waiting for a rising edge on the comm1 switch, when it appears that the rising edge of the comm2 is being mistakenly used, you might want to hold off doing too much diagnosis.

did you restart voice attack after updating DCS?

Managed to get it working, the clue was post#168 of this thread. I hadn't any chatter.dll installed.

I had to install the chatter.dll (even though I'm not using it) to have it working again.

 

@Holywood, if you're seeing this, you might want to take a look at that dll dependency ;).

(I'm using last Vaicom.dll release v2.5.2)

 

Thanks all for the nice messages, really appreciated

 

Update: with the great help of a small but determined team of Sherlocks I managed to hunt down the bug that a few users reported regarding PTT refresh. Turns out this had to do with the Chatter.dll not being installed.

 

Latest build on the website is now fixed for this.

Existing installs especially without Chatter are advised to update the plugin to this latest version:

Not working for me in newest DCS build with F-18 (or any module), can't get it off "Easy Comms ON" or switch default profile.

 

 

I'm sure it'll be sorted, but unfortunately, until then, it's side-lined :(

+++ plugin 2.5.3 WIP +++

 

Guys

 

Thanks for all your useful inputs.

I'll be releasing plugin version 2.5.3 within the next two weeks.

 

Until that time for 2.5.2 users:

 

*) The Hornet currently works only with Easy Comms ON (not with OFF).

*) You can use the 'Auto-import new theater' function (see manual) for the Persian Gulf map ATCs.

*) Download and install the Chatter.dll, even if you don't use chatter (see post #632 thx@LhuanDula).

 

Cheers

Keep getting "PTT Key not in use: check configuration."

 

Well after trying for the better part of two months trying to get voice attack and Viacom working to no avail a friend from my squad pushed me into getting it working Saturday. First we went with a different profile besides Viacom this was one he had made for the Huey specific. He gave me a copy and I started playing with it saw several things that were personalized for him so I started rumbling in the va manual learned how I could add other profilescommands and import them tried it but the list was way too long and I learned of a way to use command from other profiles and prioritize which file command is used first second etc.so I created a new profile imported the commands from his profile and changed the first command I saw that needed changing then I had purchased the profiles for the helos from Hollywood iirc.

 

Solast night I tried a flight with va. About half of the commands I used would work. Some were like autostart , others like gunners hot worked about half the time,then we get in to the f keys comm menu. I was able to get f3,and f12 and I think f10 working enoughnto be useful. Some commands like f1,f2,f5 were never understood or work. I’m in very so seeing the va app isn’t possible especially since I use alt enter to full screen dcs.

 

I’m going to work with the ms trainer some today I hope after several rounds with the trainer it will work better I pronbanblly did it 6 time at least with the. Viacom profile.

 

Then I’m going through and pick the 20 most used command and work ewith them til they start working better. Then I’m going through the -10 checklist and make sure everything for start up, setting the radios and gunners hot, ctld csar etc all work. That’s today’s project.

 

If anyone has solutions tibbits to get a command to work please pass them om. I think my recognition level is 60 bow

 

 

Hi BlacleyCole,

 

 

I just read your post with great interest. I love to fly the Huey and installed the VA-Pro-Plugin 2.5.2 yesterday. Did everything "by the book" and have it running by now. I chose a button on my Puma flight trainer for the PTT function. After training the voice recognition system a little more, VA´s recognization of commands is now pretty good. The only thing I just can´t seem to get working, is to get rid of the message "PTT Key not in use: check configuration.". I tried different settings for the TX1 - TX6 mappings in the configuration window (CTRL-ALT-C), but nothing seems to work.

In DCS I can hear the static noise and confirmation sound when depressing and releasing the communication switch on my Puma, but nothing happens and the message is still appearing in VA.

 

 

Since you already managed to get VA working with your Puma in the Huey, I ´m curious what I´m doing wrong here...

 

 

Thanx !

Can someone explain step to step procedure for importing new theatres? I tried to follow the one in the manual but when i paste in the voice attack profile (don't remember the exact field but it is the one stated on the vaicom pro manual) i just have empty spaces.

It is for Hormuz obviously

Hi

 

For a single key PTT setup you select the TX node to use with the dropdown labeled SNGL on the PTT page of the config window.

Hope this helps.

 

Hollywood.

 

Got it working ! Thanks for your advice.

 

I presumed, that VA would have made the necessary configuration changes to use the assigned button for "radio communication menu" that I had been using in DCS so far. Didn´t expect to have to configure more. Reading the VA manual proved to be a good idea anyway.

 

@Blacleycole: Do you have PTT already working correctly in VA? Did you assign a button of your Puma flightstick and can you use it with VA to have your commands interpreted correctly?

If so, double-check if the assigned flight stick button for PTT is set via the VA joystick icon and if the TX-Key-assignments for the different radios are set correctly. You find them at the very end of the DCS-profile in VA. (Missed out on those in the first place - could have spared me a lot of trouble...)

For a start, I defined only a button for TX1 and mapped it in the configuration window [CTRL-ALT-C] to the VHF AM radio.

That done, I then jumped into the Huey, switched on the battery, set the ATC-frequency to 138.000 Mhz (@Tbilisi-Lochini) and the radio selector switch to position 3 (VHF). When VA reads your commands correctly, you`ll see your request in written words on top of the cockpit window and ATC will answer your request right away. The next step I want to try, is to assign individual cockpit keys to voice commands, that way I can spare fiddling around with the keyboard for cranking the gas throttle to idle or closing the cockpit doors. ; )

 

 

For the future, I hope that ED will further improve radio communication logic, so that requests and clearances are handled the correct way while in the Huey.

With so many tests, VA stopped working in 2.5.0

I got it to work again, but I can not make it work in 2.5.2

My advice, after losing hours trying to work ... is to leave it like this until an update.

I can't get it to work either. Yet again I get the "no DCS detected" in the Voice Attack log and I'm asked to follow the steps on Page 33 of the manual AGAIN! I too have given up and await the next update whenever that may be.
