The second picture is the kneeboard Back plain, I had that a long time ago and can't remember how I fixed it, you can get that when you lose the kneeboard pages.

 

It looks to me like it's a generic kneeboard problem and not Vaicom related but could be wrong.

 

So can you bring up other kneeboard pages when you page forward or back on the knneboard (usually the square bracket keys)

 

Are you seeing the same thing in all modules or just the A-10?

 

That's not much help as such but perhaps it may just assist (a little) to try to narrow this down a bit first to see where the problem lies

Hi! When I issue the JESTER OPTIONS command this is the result:

Is it normal?

yes - that is the Vaicom version of the Heatblur Wheel (there is some technical reason why they cannot both work at the same time)

Yes, this is how it works as far as I know. For anyone who is interested, I changed my Map Markers command phrase (found in the Extensions category of the VA profile list from [1...10] to [1...30] and Jester happily selected waypoint 25 to a steerpoint so we could navigate to it.

Hello everyone,

 

For some reason, my VAICOM creates a copy of folder hierarchy in "C:\Scripts\Aircrafts\_Common\Cockpit" which stays after closing VoiceAttack. I'd rather it didn't put temp files in root folders. Any fix for this?

Interesting. I'm seeing the same thing. Seems to be a copy of the files added to DCS as part of VAICOM's kneeboard extension. I agree that it shouldn't be there. I suggest you report it as a bug in a separate thread in the main VAICOM forum. This thread is so long that it will be easy for the dev to miss your report.

 

BTW, nothing about these files is reported in the VAICOM log even with debug turned on. Seems like these files should be in the list of files "reset" upon initialization.

Hi, using my ARIO extension I'm completely unable to make jester to switch radio frequencies. I'm using "radio tune two five six decimal zero zero zero" for example and nothing happens. Same if I use "select TAC Lincoln". TACAN tune commands work. 

 

I've check the voice commands for radio tuning and seem to be missing. 

 

It's weird since I've been using these radio voice commands in the past and they used to work. At least until the last update. 

 

 

Any ideas?

Can someone confirm that the AI RIO pack for VAICOM PRO only recognizes the FEW commands listed in the VA profile and NOT the whole list of commands in the VAICOM PRO manual.

EDIT: Nevermind. I was stupid as usual. Got it now 😄

Hi guys!
I've been using Vaicompro for a long time and I'm very happy with it. I've purchased recently the F14 and of course the AIRIO extension to Vaicompro.
I've been doing test with both of them in Singleplayer and worked wonderfully, VAICOMPRO recognized my airframe and everything worked out fine.
Jumping into multiplayer, VAICOMPRO doesn't recognize my airplane nor airport, so AIRIO becomes unavailable and I can't find a way to make it work in multiplayer.

Of course, I do have VAICOMPRO pro, airio and realistic atc extensions. 

Any help would be greatly appreaciated

Ok, once again I have the same problem that keeps happening over and over and I don't know how to fix it (I fix it and later it comes back again). I have done all the steps in the manual, and all of the steps you guys have given me, but nothing I do can eliminate the problem. Again it's not recognizing the modules and cannot use it. Why does it keep rearing its ugly head and what can I do to fix it?

 

Once again, here comes the new log file:

@sniperpr1 it is said in that log that you have selected the option of using STEAM in your CONFIG tab but I do see that you have both DCS Open beta and DCS standart in different locations. Select it in "standalone". Check that one out and try once again.

Once again, here comes the new log file:

Two thoughts: (1) You might be using Steam version but VAICOMPRO is unable to find a registry link to your steam installation. (The log file says it can't find a Steam version.) Or (2) you are starting DCS before you start VoiceAttack, so that the changes that VoiceAttack makes are not seen because those files were loaded already.

 

Nothing looks out of place in the log file, so you will need to provide a lot more detail about exactly what you are doing and how your installation is set up in order for someone to help you.

I am not using steam, but open beta and starting vaicom pro before dcs. Also, I have standalone selected in config. I uninstalled everything and reinstalled vanilla dcs and vaicom pro. Still nothing.

More questions then: Do you have "Use custom path" checked in config? If so, what is the path? Do you have Open beta selected in Config? Where is your dcs open beta installed? Is it possible you have more than one copy of open beta on your computer? How do you start DCS? Please report the exact path you are using to start DCS open beta. Are you running VA as administrator?

Hello,

If you are using a custom path you need to point it to your 'DCS World OpenBeta' folder. Mine is I:\Program Files\Eagle Dynamics\DCS World Openbeta

Also we have a discord page here if you wish to jump on https://discord.gg/TTufWqTa

Does anything appear in the configuration window when jumping in an aircraft for example

It would seem Vaicom is looking for a 'standard' install and not a custom install.
as you can see my Log looks first at I:\

Or, could it be using the wrong saved games folder?@sniperpr1 could you post a screenshot of your VAICOM settings?

Please could you also check your c:\users\Jose\Saved Games folder and see if there are any DCS folders other than DCS and DCS.openbeta.

I'm not sure why you say that. In his log file VAICOM found both a release and an openbeta version of DCS and made suitable modifications to both. That's normal. You apparently do not have the release version installed, or if you do, then the registry key for it was deleted, because VAICOM is not finding it.

Ok. I had everything you suggested as you suggested, but was having the problem. After uninstalling everything and reinstalling everything, it's back to functioning normally, but l'll take screenshots of everything so I can use them as reference if this happens again. Once again, thank you very much for your suggestions... 👍

I have a really weird problem with Vaicom Pro... I own two modules and by both of them I am facing a radio which is not working

 

1- F/A-18C

By this module my comm2 is not working. I set the hotas button for Tx2 and when I press it I see that 

  • Voice Attack recognizes TX2 is pressed (or released)
  • Vaicom Pro shows in PTT screen correct frequency and comm2
  • Still the voice message is not transmitted over correct comm (I think) to the DCS as I get no reply (i.e. Bogey Dopes returns nothing)

If I set the same freq. for Comm1 and do the same stuff over comm1 all works perfectly

 

2- F-16

By this one UHF is not working but VHF does (so similar issue like above and same behaviour I observe). Interesting thing is, although UHF is recognized over voice attack and Vaicom Pro, in DCS I notice that VHF Channel is blinking although I use UHF hot keys

 

Anybody who faced same issue? 😞 I survive by F18 as comm1 and comm2 are identical but F16 is not possible to fly with Vaicom as UHF and VHF have no identical bands to replace one another.
