Hi,

 

I've an issue with refueling on the Supercarrier in Banklers Case I training mission. I can request the crew to refuel my ship ("Crew, request refuel"). But I cannot abort. If I say "Crew, Abort Refuel" the command gets correctly recognized by voice attack as Ground Crew - Abort Refuel, but in game this is send as "Abort rejoin", which does not do want I want. See attached Screenshots.

I don't think you can abort refuel on "ground". If you don't want to be topped off on ground, I believe you have to "request re-arming", and then set the amount of fuel you want.
Cheers!

EDIT: As far as I know, this is a DCS limitation, and you can always move away from the refueling team and ignore their complaints. "Hey, watch'a doing?!" or whatever they say.

Correct. "Abort refuel" is for the tankers.

I've just started using Vaicom again but I'm having CTD issues. The voiceattack app just crashes when I execute a command. Not all the time but enough to ruin my mission!

Any ideas?

Although ‘request refuel’ is also an option when on the ground. It just fils up your tanks to the specified amount in the rearming screen. Great for topping off before takeoff in case your flying buddy is a bit slow.

Is it CTD or does VA just close leaving you in DCS with no voice commands?

If the second one then try using the Vaicom app to start VA - if VA then closes during flight this will automatically restart it

Thanks... I just spotted that you can now do that and it's much better!

Just got Vaicom Pro and purchased the bundle, got it all working, the Kneeboard loads up fine but when calling any tab the Kneeboard closes.

I am using the correct words link Anvil, Show Notes and Sarge, just get a beep and Kneeboard closes.

Try rolling back to VAICOM version 2.5.24

Seems I found out the what was keeping kneeboard from working, After pushing the PTT button i was leaving it on and giving multiple commands.

If i turn it off after every command and back on for the next command it works fine.

So push to turn on give command re-push  turn off.

 

Is there a way to have it work like Push and hold button give command and release button to close.

 

So it works like " push & hold  to talk  then release to close             not push for on...... talk,...... and push to close.

Yes, you configure both the TXx press and release. And in the release make sure "only invoked..." is checked.

But even so, the training you really want to do anyway, is the core training of the Microsoft Speech Recognition, because MS Speech Recognition, is what is actually doing the recognition, neither VAICOM nor VoiceAttack.


BUT I really trained MSSR. The recommended number you'll find anywhere is three. But I did both "paths" 10 times, meaning I did it 20 times. Yes, boring as hell. But worth it for me as a non native English speaker. I also did half of it in a monotone voice like MSSR instructs you too, and the other half in a natural way.
 

 

Thanks for your reply!  IIRC, the MSSR only has two sets of reading material for the training?  Is there more?  I would've thought there would be more to greatly train the speech program.

Well, yes there are only, sort of, two different documents one reads through. But you can do it as many times as you like.

Is that going to help?  Or is it placebo?  It's the same words, what difference does it make reading 2x or 10x?

I imagine there is some amount of diminishing returns, but multiple reads of the same material does improve as the system gets more used to your accent sounds and can predict similar sounding words more easily.  But using speech recognition period trains the system little by little.  you could dictate known commands to text the MSR and it will train it to better understand your VAICOM commands.

It's definitely not placebo, as it was impossible for me have it understand "ground" or "airsupply" etc. before, without adding it to the dictionary. (Those two words wouldn't be understood even after that). Now I have only three entries in the dictionary vs. 2000+ before.
I probably need to add some more airfields, when I find some troublesome. But it's about two months since I did everything from scratch with a fresh setup.
Like @Dograw78 says. The recognition will get better and better the more you use it too, especially if you start dictating word documents for it, especially with VAICOM word and phrases. My guess is that this is what the VAICOM training tries to do, but for me that is too much hit and miss, but I know others have had success with it.

Hi.

I have a weird thing that's happening whereby if I press my PTT button once, it works fine and I can use commands through VAICOM as per normal. The second time I press it, it goes straight from listening resumed to listening suspended. If I press it a third time, works fine. Fourth time drops through to listening suspended and so on and so on. Every second press of the PTT, it drops through.

 

I must have something set wrong but I've no idea what. Any help would be massively appreciated.

 

Thanks!

Edit the profile.
Edit the TX release. Click on the joystick and make sure "only invoked when released" or something check box is checked.
Also make sure that you don't have configured a PTT in VoiceAttack that will conflict with the TX.

Random fyi based on some troubleshooting I went through recently.. if you have the NS430, make sure that module is disabled.

 

I've been having trouble with recognition for a while. Almost like it'd recognize every other command. Worked great every time, 60% of the time. Did a lot of voice trainings but that didn't help. Also the comms menu starting popping up... but ONLY for the Ka-50, and redoing the export.lua didn't fix it like it has before when that's happened generally. Also a few other miscellaneous things I had chalked up to bugs or config problems I couldn't figure out.

 

Was re-reading troubleshooting section, and noticed "The Garmin NS340 module must be disabled in DCS module manager."

 

I think I had noticed that before but disregarded it because I don't have the NS430 enabled for any planes... but I did still have the module enabled.

Disabled it, and now not having any problems. Working great every time.

Thanks for your responce Maxsenna. I've just gone through and checked and all that is set as you describe.

It's weird because on the VoiceAttack output window on the first button press it lists:

Joystick : 'Transmit TX1 press'
Listening Resumed
Joystick : 'Transmit TX1 release'
Listening Suspended

 

Which is as you would expect. The second press lists precisely this:

 

Joystick : 'Transmit TX1 press'
Listening Resumed

--------------------------------------

DCS mission | Georgia

Player TLicense entered module F-16C Viper, unit callsign Enfield 11

Nearest ATC:Kutaisi.

Listening suspended

Joystick : 'Transmit TX1 release'

--------------------------------------

 

I'm guessing something has become corrupt somewhere?

No that is not what you would expect. The "release" on the first press should be for TX1, not TX2. This implies that somehow you have the button assignment for TX1 release not configured properly, and possibly have a problem with TX2 as well. Furthermore the second press shows "listening resumed" just as it should but with no "listening suspended" afterwards, which is different from what you described in your original post.

 

It would be helpful if you could post a screenshot of your VA window trying these keypresses when not in a mission since behavior can be module dependent. Say something in each case while the button is held so that we can get verification that VA is listening (or not). Also, since VA can be configured to have the more recent messages at either the top or the bottom, please indicate which of those options you have selected when you post your screenshot. Also, what is the setting of the rotary switch on the PTT tab of the VAICOM widget? This can matter since PTT behavior is somewhat module dependent.

 

If all else fails you may need to load a clean VAICOM profile and remap the TX keys per instructions in the VAICOM manual.
