  1. Are you mapping the first or second detent for the laser? Try the latter, ignore the former :)
  2. Would be nice if you could ask CP/G George to store a target point where he is looking. I would not want to see him do this automatically (he actually says "lased and stored") as it would create a huge mess of target points. Preferable for the player pilot to ask for it via the George UI.
  3. Set your acquisition source from the TSD page to the TADS and you will see a broken cross where the CP-G had his sensors pointed.

    If the airbase has no bluefor near it, and it has redfor ground units, they will capture the base. If you want to prevent that, place blue ground units at the base to keep it defended. They could be invisible and immortal if you don't want the red ground units to engage them.
  5. I agree the ASE screen should correspond to 12 o'clock always being the top of the screen. However, I think logically the TSD screen should adjust the position of ASE contacts in accordance to the orientation of your own ship. This is only my opinion on what makes sense, and you are right, the SMEs would need to weigh in on what is correct behavior in real life.
  6. When using TSD - MAP - ORIENT N-up (north up), when you get an ASE vocal warning (e.g. SA-8 12 o'clock), this is correct, however the TSD should visually show the symbology in front of the aircraft. What is instead happening, is the symbology in this case is at the 12 o'clock position as if we were in TRK UP orientation. north up.trk
  7. That's interesting. I didn't do Caucasus, I was on Syria and maybe Marianas. Not they I think of it, my timing might be from the moment I start the battery in my startup procedure. What I had noticed, is that turning on the Doppler has no effect on the speed to alignment.
  8. The charts on the TSD also appear once the alignment is complete, 4:20 to be exact.

    How do you get Vaicom to work with the radios in the Apache? Specifically, do you need to map multiple Vaicom radio PTTs, or can you use the RTS rocker to select the desired radio, then use one Vaicom PTT to communicate on the selected radio? I'd like to be able to rocker to the UHF, speak "Truman Select" and it would tune the UHF to my Truman freq. It doesn't seem to work that way though. I've used Vaicom successfully in the Hornet and the Huey, so I have a good idea what i'm doing, but the Apache is still a mystery.

    Main thing that Vaicom brings is immersive radio comms with AI, like tankers and jtac and the super carrier. I like it alot, but it's not a macro button pusher, that's where VoiceAttack comes in.
  11. Ahh yes, that's it, good catch
  12. Barometric alt appears in the top right when you have the pitch ladders showing with transition symbology, but it would not appear otherwise. Radar alt should show all the time.
  13. Hop into an Apache (PLT or CPG station), and turn on your NVGs. Turn down the brightness to a comfortable level. Now turn the goggles off and back on. You will notice the brightness is back to its default setting. Note, I'm referring to the NVGs and not the IHADSS w/ FLIR.
  14. i've been using one PTT in Vaicom which in SRS communicates with the radio selected via the RTS rocker switch. I've also had 4 hat buttons mapped to 4 bindings in Vaicom, but it seemed inconsistent whether Vaicom would be listening to me. It's a different kind of setup from the Hornet.
  15. Is the Vaicom trigger (like push a button then speak "chief request rearming") being finicky for anyone else in the Apache? It works sometimes, but often doesn't. I think that its toggling between VoiceAttack listening and not listening depending on the Vaicom triggered keypress action, as opposed to acting like a push-to-talk. I assumed that I just need to wait for a Vaicom patch in order to support Apache, but @MAXsenna above indicates its working fine already. Other modules (Huey and Hornet) are working as expected, so my Vaicom and VoiceAttack install should be fine.
