SAME. (I almost produced an identical post)

 

Additionally...

 

DCS Version 2.5.6.52437 - 22 July 2020

 

UHF ARC-159 Mode INC cycles between MANUAL and GUARD only.

UHF ARC-159 Mode DEC cycles between MANUAL and PRESET only.

 

I've been working around this since release and its no big deal (there are more important things I'm sure) but figured it was due to report.

Almost there, but not quite... :)

 

"PRESET" and "GUARD" Pilot Controls Switched, but slightly different from the post above - and I think relevant here instead of separate post.

 

1) The AN/ARC-159 radio display window does not correspond to current MODE selected. [see pictures]

 

2) With MANUAL selected, choosing the appropriate radio option in the ATC window (F1, F2, etc.) will change the ARC-159 MODE switch to back PRESET - in this case 243.000.

 

This was tested on the F-14B_IA_Syria_CASE1_SC Instant Action Mission [DCS_2.5.6.54046 - 26 August 2020]

 

EDIT: Issue #2 occurs only when "Radio Assist" is selected in DCS Options.

Unfortunately we introduced the second bug with the first fix, our apologies. Now both are fixed, but we have to wait for the next update. Thank you for your kind patience.

That's it! The AN/ARC-159 Modes and Function keybinds are accurate and functional. Close this out, IronMike.

Thank You!
