Hi, when I started using the software, I was mostly playing single player. Now I am flying a lot more multiplayer, but the problem is that I am issuing my commands on the same channels the squad is using, for example in AAR, I tune the tanker but all my commands are heard by the flight as they are also tuned to the tanker frequency ( or what ever agency I am communicating to) 

 

Is there a way to set the software to use for example a different channel - I have 4 way comms switch on my HOTAS, it would be great to be able to use one of the two I dont generally use for agency and inter flight comms to control vaicom? 

Is this possible? 

 

Thanks

System specs: Scan 3XS i9 9900K @5ghz, 32GB Corsair veng DDR4 2666, EVGA GTX 2080ti Win 10. Reverb G2 , 50 inch 4K Phillips monitor. Real simulator FSSB R3 with F-16 SGRH grip and warthog with RS F-18 grip, plus Cubesim TM MFD's, Tir5. Winwing F-18 throttle, DogFightBoss UFC, panels & MK14 ACES seat :cool: Cougar throttle & TUSBA, plus ICP for the Viper. MFG crosswind rudders. Jet seat and butt kicker..

VR Settings: 90% (90 & 100 ), motion re projection locked 45 FPS, MSAA x2, shadows off, water med, terrain low, draw distance med, no aniso. DCS PD =1.    15ms GPU frame time & super smooth....looks great too.

You certainly can use different buttons for VAICOM. It's just a matter of changing the assignments in your VAICOM PRO profile within VoiceAttack. Review the manual instructions on initial setup for details. 

 

You don't say how you are communicating with your squad in MP. I'm guessing you are using the same buttons for radio selection in VAICOM and SRS. If you want to keep using the same buttons there are a number of options, including the SRS integration options built into VAICOM and described in the manual. But the solution I've found works best for me is to turn off the SRS option where a radio selection key also works as PTT, and then map a different button for SRS PTT. I use that same button for Discord and Teamspeak PTT in case I'm using one of those instead of SRS.

Hi, thanks, I am using SRS, and have my HOTAS programmed as per the real thing, IE Pri & Aux, plus MIDS 1&2, although we dont generally ever use the latter....So yes, same buttons for Vaicom and SRS, which was what I thought might be good to avoid. I was thinking to use the MIDS as the vaicom versions of Pri & Aux.

 

I will look into your suggestion when back at my sim PC this coming weekend, thank you.

I am in a similar situation, having trouble working out how to integrate Viacom and SRS, previous SP player now starting in MP... I had thought about ditching viacom altogether, I could just about do without it for everything except AAR and Carrier ops (Im a VR player), This option looks like a good solution, I will try that setup for myself! Thanks
