DCS World UH-1H Radio profile
« on: October 15, 2016, 06:00:51 pm »
When flying the Huey tuning the radios can be a little tricky whilst in flight. This has become especially tricky for me since getting a rift as I can no longer use programs like helios, and I don't even know where my keyboard is when flying.

Faced with this challenge, I turned to VoiceAttack. This has been a love / hate affair, but after a lot of blood (ok, maybe not blood), sweat and tears I've eventually finished a profile to tune the radios using my voice (and virtual co-pilot) alone.

After investing a lot of time into this, I've decided to publish a light version to the public which will allow you to have your virtual co-pilot tune the VHF radio to any Tower frequency on the Georgia map. See the demo video below.

I will be making the full version that allows you to tune the FM, NAV, VHF and UHF radio to ANY frequency that the radio supports, as well as the airports and beacons of the Nevada map for US$2 via paypal. PM me if you're interested!

You can download the free demo version here

Please note the following.
1. You must be running VoiceAttack as Administrator
2. The Profile was built with VoiceAttack preview version 1.5.12.24. Some of the users testing it found that some other versions of VoiceAttack couldn't send the commands to DCS, but upgrading to this version resolved it.
3. You should run the Windows Voice training several times before using Voice Attack as it can sometime have difficulty hearing things like VHF as VHF.

This is actually pretty impressive.  I was showing the video to Paul over there at HCS... he liked it, too.

Thanks Gary, I appreciate the compliment, and this is just the beginning. After I ran into the issues with the out of memory that I posted for you the other day, I looked at alternative methods and couldn't believe I missed something so obvious.

I have a whole 'virtual co-pilot' in progress (much like the HCS packs, only not quite as far reaching, I still love Verity by the way  ;D ) with cockpit commands and read back of check lists. I'm just looking to see if there is a way of reading variables exported from DCS to know if a switch has been 'thrown' as that would be the ultimate experience.

I'm also building out profiles now for the Mi-8 and Gazelle as a priority, and I'm looking at building something similar for FSX / Prepar3D.

Hi, 


This is a shot in the dark since this is an old topic, but thought I would try.

I get an error page when I click the link for the demo.  Just started using DCS and the Huey was my first add on I bought.  Would like to check out the demo if possible.
Thanks

I fixed that link, it should work now(It had double quotes around it, so the forum tags were incorrect; 'http://"https://')
