  1. New to viacom pro...i seem to have it all working ok but i hear the chatter in the f18 but i dont in the f14...any ideas what i got wrong?
  2. Ty hornblower for your help as well... I realized that voice attack has the window that shows what your saying...apparently it only reoconizes a few words im saying..lol I guess i need to look into how to train it. Also i know im jumping ahead..lol...but is it possible to change the phrases? Like instead of chief ground power on...maybe chief, give me power? The reason i ask is i was intrigued by how it could make the sim more realistic...some of the phrases seem to be too "computer" like to me. Is there voice training for viacom aswell as voice attack or just voice attack? Thanks again for the help..i will chime back when i get that sorted out. I dont have dicord thing but appriciate that you are willing to help!
  3. Yes sir...i have read the manual..not one of them guys,lol. I have the viacom box leftctrl,left alt. And c...i can hear the clicks and beeps when i hit a mic key. I have chatter set to automatically come on but i dont hear anything in the dcs. I have standalone voice attack and have dcs beta standalone. I made sure to direct the custom path for my lua as video explained. I did just notice that voice attack isnt getting alot of words im saying...so i presume viacom isnt as well...is there a way to help this? Ive never used voiceattack or viacom before...this is all new to me. I do understand viacom alot more than voice attack because of reading viacoms manual a cpl times over and watching 2 videos by hollywood i believe? But im missing something somewhere... I have a logitech pro x headset so i think they would be ok? I plan to use all this for vr with my rift s headset after i get it figured out. Any ideas would be great..thanks
  4. I am new to dcs and just learning...i purchased voiceattack,viacompro,airio and chatter. I have yet to get this stuff working. I looked at the videos and one is 2yrs old the other is 1yr old...it didnt have anything about the airio in it or installing it. I couldnt find any info on this. I really bought it for the f14 airio addon but i think i got everything installed correct as from what i can understand. I get into a cold and dark f14 and say"chief turn on ground power" nothing happens. For this i try the auto mic as well as the other radios but nothing. Im kinda of confused as to setting up the joystick mic buttons.i set it up like the manual with my warthog throttle mic hat.i just wish there was a hand holding video for us new players to understand all this.
  5. I know im gunna get the "you need to set it up to what you like" answers but, im not a big time pilot in dcs... I own a cpl. Modules and am newbie at best. My question is i have the warthog hotas and just got the f14 module and cannot find a profile anywhere that shows what a default mapping would be...i know heatblur did a basic mapping but alot of things arnt mapped. I ussually go on google and look it up and see what different people are doing to map aircraft to thier hotas and than i go from there but i cannot seem to find anything for the f14. Can anyone show or tell me what they mapped and what are essentials for this aircraft? Thanks for any help..good day!!!
  6. What do you think, i have a overclocked gtx980 ti....should i upgrade to the gtx 1080ti or wait till next newest card comes out? Opinions?
  7. I have heard time and time again around here " make your own profile for your flight controls" and this i finally took the time to do. As i am new to dcs ive had a hard time trying to get to grips with understanding and memorizing all the buttons and switchs... Anyway, i started mapping my throttle and rudder pedals and stick as i worked through tutorials i would pause,program, then save my profile everytime i did this... Well, today i had a dillemma when playing around with my monitors that i couldnt see the screen to adjust the resolution back...well no big deal, i go into the files and delete the options.lua Upon doing that i go into game and when i see my controls are gone i click load profile and select my profile and hit ok....nothing...nothing loads. Im so pissed cause ive been working on this for the past week...whats the point of saving a profile if you cant load it?
  8. Well either way..thank you
  9. I did come across this one... Thank you... I understand the gauges but need the understanding of it in use...ie. During a flight and switching to different waypoints and following them. I was wondering if i could use a10c navigation videos for the a model...theres a ton of those
  10. Im looking at the bunyap totorials and i cannot find any for navigation...i dont want to jump ahead of myself this time...do you guys know of any navigation tutorials for the a10a? David oc...i got up in the air and realized i have no clue on navigating...so i landed
  11. Daveoc thanks thats awesome...i will try it. I dont know anything other than startup,take off and circle the airport and land...so i guess i should do navigation next? As for what i like, i like the tv guided stuff *davidoc* the numbers with the lines i take are waypoints...so if im rite i take off,fly to way points, bomb vehicles, finish waypoints,land...is this correct?
  12. Why were on the topic, i would say i got startup taxi and takeoff down...landing i would say about 80 to 85%... What should i do from here?
  13. First let me start with you guys rock!!!! Thank you!!! I think what is happening is i started with flaming cliffs because of the a10( my favorite all time plane) upon learning to start it up, taxi, take off and about 70% land it good, i saw the a10c...Now all that went through my mind was" aww man, if i gotta learn systems than i might as well get the c version" Well, boy was i wrong...i quickly got eaten alive trying to understand terminology and all. So, i then saw everyone talking about the f18 and how great it was and how much they liked it over the a10c so it slod me on that...another one that ate me alive trying to understand. Then i saw some people talking about the av8 and how it was easier to operate in alot of aspects...so out came the card and i owned the av8. Then i found out there was no training missions so i couldnt even begin to do anything with it. I than said well maybe because the blackshark is old that it might be easier to operate the systems...but trying to understand things being talked about than trying to figure out russian writing added a whole new level to it all... I just want to fly and blow some shit up!!! So after posting this i have since started full circle.... I have taken your guys advice and loaded up the a10a and have been and will continue to learn this first... As of this writing i can start it up, taxi, fly it around well, and land pretty damn good!!!! I have looked into video you guys have mentioned and some others i found and just gotta not be swayed to divert from it till i get the whole thing down...than ill move onto the a10c and hopefully it will be a good transition and better understanding of things...thanks again guys!!!!
  14. Ive been trying to learn flying these modules with very poor results... I purchase a cpl. While the sale is on so now just gotta figure things out, hopefully. Ive asked some questions but seems all i ever hear is practice...i got that but theres got to be more than that. Like when i do a practice tutorial and listen to the instructor talk, its like another language with all the terminologies and such. How did u guys start? Did you use a pen and paper(which ive filled half a notebook already) or is there a tablet app thats better for that? Which order do you think is the best way to learn things? I guess what im pushing at is can someone give me some guidance...just seems trying to learn this with the game tutorials they jump all over and its so much so fast. Not all of us have pilot backgrounds or have played flight sims our whole life. What order should i learn this? Is everything that the tutorials teach really needed like 5 different ways to navigate...? Are there any ideas you think i should do? I understand i need to pratice, but are there certain steps that would help the next if doing them in a certain order... Thanks for any help you can offer me, just seems like im spinning wheels half the time:mad:
