Bailey's F-14B VoiceAttack Profiles


Recommended Posts

Hello, I finally bought the full version of VA recently and installed this pack, having a few issues right off the bat though.

 

Firstly, some of the commands call a "beep-disconnected.wav" sound file which doesn't exist and is not provided in the pack.

 

Secondly, I currently use the special option for the radio menu "OPEN MENU: RADIO MENU KEY FOLLOWED BY PTT" and would like the profile to work with this. I guess I'll have to manually edit it, but just want to know if anyone has done this, what needs chaning and where do I start? And how would it interact for example with which radio I want to call on?

 

As part of this, I noticed that because I have a UK keyboard layout, the button it expects for comms menu \ doesn't work. Is there a quick way to change all the commands that use it? The in-game control mappings are mapped to \ but the VA profile is using a button that physically doesn't exist on my keyboard, if in VA I press the button that gives me \ in game, it selects #.

 

Finally, I have no intention of using ClickAttack (don't think I even can in VR), can I just delete these profile lines to stop it doing that intro action?

 

1. It looks like one of the commands called "Voice Attack Off" is the one that calls "beep-disconnected.wav". That was in use before VA changed the way it does some sounds. You are ok to either replace the sound part of the command, delete the command, or ignore the command. If there are other commands that use "beep-disconnected.wav" please let me know specifically which ones.

 

2. I do not have experience using "OPEN MENU: RADIO MENU KEY FOLLOWED BY PTT". I tend to keep all my radios, chats, and voice command on different buttons so that they do not get tangled.

 

3. Yea, keyboard localization kinda stinks, try this:

-Open Voice Attack and click the Edit Profile button.

-In the search bar at the bottom, paste this without the quotes: "press "

-For every command that pops up (there should be only 2), those are the ones will you will change. Double click the commands and change every "\ |" to, in your case, "#".

-Repeat for every command you see. It shouldn't be too many. There are about 7 that you will change.

Let me know how those steps go!

 

4. Sure

Thank you very much for your help, your profile looks awesome and I'm looking forward to using it lots (with some small tweaks).

 

1. Yup, both on and off. unlikely to use either really but deleted the sound file line from both.

 

2. & 3. I can see now it basically boils down to "Comm reset" and "ICS Menu", as all the rest just cleverly call those. But I decided to change it up more than re-mapping the button, because I like my button setup and am happy to press the buttons to spawn the comm menu, and just VA from there. So I disabled all lines in "Comm reset" and "ICS menu" except the F11 x2, because the way I want to use it, I'll open the right radio manually, and I just need a small reset catch in case it's in a context menu. I'm assuming everything will just work from there.

Sweet! Sounds good. If you find a good way to use the new F14 PPT options, please swing by and leave some knowledge for the others that might want to use the same options with VoiceAttack.

I think my Windows voice recog must have gotten broken somehow - did a full reinstall of Windows, installed Bailey's F-14 profile, and it's working beautifully!

It should be fairly simple, I've changed it back now for "ICS menu" so all the "Chief" combos work without me needing to press things.

 

Basically, with the PTT option I have set, neither the \ key nor any of RShift+\, "RCtrl+\ etc open the radio menu on their own. Instead the \ key acts as a primer, that then makes any of the 3 "mic button" presses open the menu in that device.

 

So ICS menu is always two lines:

 

Press \

Press RShift + \

 

Same for UHF 1 or UHF 2:

 

Press \

Press RAlt + \ OR RCtrl + \

 

The conditional you have set inside "Comm reset" to open the right radio based on the set variable would probably need the lines that open and clear it brought into each condition, so it clears the right one.

I am loving this profile, but have a question about Jester radio commands. Can I use this profile to get Jester to tune Radio 2 to a channel, without having to go through all the menus? In my squadron flights, we always use pre-programmed channels, and I'd like to be able to say something like "Jester tune button X", with X being the pre-programmed channel.

 

Anybody know how I can do this?

You can do it pretty much by using VAICOM Pro.  I have been able to tell Jester, "Radio Frequency 118 decimal 0" and he will say "roger" and then I will see in my VHF/UHF2 repeater on the right side of the cockpit the frequency being changed.  He can also do TACAN ("TACAN mode transmit," "TACAN freq X-ray 018" and he will tune his TACAN.)

 

There's a way to have VAICOM Pro do button as well, but I haven't been able to get it to have Jester do it.  I'm sure there's a way I just honestly only started trying to figure that out today.

PS was a little late..saw that you had VAICOM Pro.  What was the matter with it?

VA would recognise my commands, but VAICOM wasn't then converting them into actions within DCS. I spent too many hours trying to get it to work, whereas Bailey's profile seemed to work straight away.

There is a user made a Vaicom AIRIO command complement for Jester to switch preset radio buttons. You just say "push button x" (x being the corresponding number). Unfortunately I forgot who made that, but I found the relevant post in the Vaicom subforum here on this forum. Pretty much found it via Google search.

 

Edit: IIRC it was this. Works like a charm for me.

I don't use VAICOM Pro, so don't know if that'll work? Also, I use Bailey's VA profile - can I attempt to merge the one you've linked to, into Bailey's, without screwing it up?

Sorry mate, can't help you there. I never used Bailey's profile, so my guess is a good as yours. I've only ever used VAICOM Pro, and otherwise I'm a Voiceattack noob. The best I could accomplish was to set the space bar to a voice command (to verbally acknowledge checklist items in the Zone 5 campaign) . 🙂

Heads up for both of y’all and everyone else here, I updated the F14 profile to include “Push button 15” type commands for preset comm channels. 
 

Bonus info: You can normally “imbed” a profile within another profile by using Global Profiles. Search “Global” in the VA help PDF and it should pop up. There is another way that is not “global”, but I don’t use that option often enough to remember what it’s called.
