Silence Jester Through Scripting


Recommended Posts

Good evening all,

 

I was wondering if there's a way to silence Jester through basic scripting (not MIST or MOOSE) for mission makers.  Although I love Jester, there are sometimes when (as a mission designer) I'd like him to be quiet.  Specifically, when intercepting a bogey when the ROE is Weapons Hold.  It kind of breaks the vibe when you're supposed to intercept and escort, and Jester is yelling to get on his six and do some of that pilot stuff.  🙂  Making the plane BlueFor means the AWACS won't call it out.  I could deactivate the RedFor bogey when in a certain radius, and activate a BlueFor, but then Jester calls out Friendly.  He's just too helpful sometimes.   

 

I did some searching through the forums and on Google, and couldn't find anything about it, so I thought I'd ask here. 

 

Thanks everyone.  Happy flying!

In case anyone else is interested:  a brute force method I found is the X:Cockpit Preform Clickable Action (2, 3381, -1).  That will lower the ICS volume knob by one notch.  It takes about 40 such actions to set it from the default setting to muted.

 

If anyone knows of a .lua command to silence Jester through the AI Wheel, I'd much prefer that cleaner way.  🙂

Even with ICS off Jester is still heard - it's one small cockpit you're in together.

Really?  I tested it and I couldn't hear him at all with the ICS volume turned down.  I even manually turned it down while he was talking and he went silent mid-sentence.  I'll have to test some more.

Maybe he saw your hand move to the volume dial and got the hint.

For sure it happened a few times. We got hit, power was down and I heard him, just low volume.

That's hilarious.  He's smarter than I thought.

I haven't tried getting shot down and losing electricity, but I couldn't hear him when I turned down the volume.  :)

This is planned as we've noticed the same when building our missions

 

That's awesome, thanks!  Do you know if it's planned soonTM or more at the bottom of the wishlist?
