Salute no longer working

Recommended Posts

Hi, sometime in the last week, I noticed that the salute command does not work anymore ( FA18)

 

I have checked the key binding ( correct), checked the functionality of the MFD button I have it bound to ( correct).

 

If I manually use the key press allocated ( left shift, ctrl, S) nothing happens either, just the shooter carries on waving his hands over his head even though I am sitting there at Mil ( same happens using AB as well..)

 

Are there any parameters that need to be met before the salute command is acted on?

 

Only thing I did was change the keyboard profile to use baileys VA profile as I tried that out...thought it was the problem, but that does not change the key bind and at any rate, I changed the profile back. To be sure, where is the standard keyboard.lua file to be found?

 

Thanks..

No, not the animation....... I press salute to launch and nothing happens☹️ I am stuck at the stage in the animation process where he hands off to the shooter and my plane launches.....I can’t launch off the cat.

 

I have done a DCS repair, same issue still.....

At what stage animation is the shooter stucked at, arms up to go thrust up or kneeled down arm extented to shoot? Might sound stupid, though, are you sure is nothing wrong with the thorttle or something, that you get to at least mil power, if not enough thrust the jet won't simply launch and shooter stays in shooting position kneeled down....

Dont use mods, checked all bindings etc as noted in OP, throttle is fine, everything works fine right up to the point I press salute......

Are there any parameters that have to be met before the animation and shoot process kicks in?

 

From past experience, I can be shot at variable throttle settings, in fact I dont usually go AB, so I dont think throttle settings matter that much....

 

The shooter does not kneel down, just stays there waving his hands....

Which plane? F/A-18 you have to do a comms menu salute, F-14 you have to LShift-U.

 

Specifically, open Comms Menu, select crew, select Salute for F18...and hold on.

This appears to have resolved itself after DCS update.....

I would say your chocks were in. Glad to see this bug sounds like it is resolved. When you spawned in on one of the cats your chocks were in and there was no way to remove them. So this could give you the impression that salute was broken as everything looked normal otherwise.

Sadly no, as I had taxied to the cat. AFAIK, the cat launch mission doEs not spawn you on the cat with chocks in place......

 

Will have to remain a mystery! Just glad it’s fixed

Experiencing the same glitch, landed the F14 on the Syria quick start case 1 recovery ( got me a 3 wire too after my bolter) and requested a launch, all the AI ran about to their respective positions

Handler lined me up with the catapult, went through all the arm commands, after the power up signal, went to 80% power, hit the salute via the comms menu, they all dropped to their knees, and I remained on the Cat.

Throttled down, went to full AB, hit the salute command again.. still nothing

Sat there for 20 mins trying to launch, till I ran out of fuel.

So you're saying the "Salute" in the ground crew comms menu is borked, and doesn't work?

It's "complicated". I made a report in the F-14 subforum:

This happens to me recently in MP. Call 'Salute' to vaicom and use F menu 3-4 times before they finally start kneeling (

 

Edit: did some more tests with Supercarrier launch mission. Salute keybinding definitely has no effect. Menu F8-F6 and Vaicom work, but sometimes kneeling animation is delayed until the engines spool up (and sometimes they kneel at idle). On some occasions I had to spool up and then give salute... I think the devs need to investigate!
