Ive just tweaked slightly so there is another update.
Fixes the ATC with no freq showing, which I noticed after your testing yesterday.

No connection could be made because the target machine actively refused it


That'll be the issue!

UDP port 9988 will need to be open for the other users to speak to you.
Else nobody will show on the freq as they can not connect and so will go elsewhere.

If the other person shows on the same freq in the window on the left, then the connection has been made and all is good.
If not then one of you isn't connected, (possible port closed).


Thanks for the bugs by the way, exactly what I was looking for.

Good morning

Roo, I am very used to using a button on my Flight yoke, very realistic compared to taking a hand off to punch the keyboard.
HOWEVER, I allocate Button0 and Simcomm registers it as continuously live.
Whats the fix for this please?

Win 7 64
lots of mem
asad Video card
Lots of Saitek controllers

Regards......

Bob

Ah that's a good one Grumpy.

I spent many hours racking my brains for the joystick ptt as I use the X52 pro, or did do...

What yoke are you using?

Does the app start it live/TX after a restart?

We have it working, but had the same problem with a "hot mike" had to choose different button.
The "port" was our problem, open and works!

two comments:
1: in a/c like the VRS FA18E with out the standard "radio panel" the "standby" function does not apply. (no biggie)
2: still would like a option to hear via head set instead of speakers.

Thanks pop.

I might have just fixed the hot Mic.
Or at least added a check to close it, if it happens.
So one to keep an eye on.


The standby freq will have to stay I'm afraid, as if you're not using auto switch that's how you manually tune.

I'll have to look at setting the sound card.
I can output which card it's using if that's of any help?

Are you using multiple sound cards or a usb headset?

You might want to take a look at this page https://github.com/ciribob/DCS-SimpleRadioStandalone. Its a program much like what you have written but for DCS. You can look at many of his functions and pull what you like since its open source. But it has some really nice features like the ability to add radio distortion ect. Just a suggestion.

Nice suggestion Neon.
Thanks.

Radio distortion is on the list along with distance from the other station.
I've also plans for a controller VCCS allowing phone calls to other controllers for coordination.

I'm concentrating on the actual workings of the pilot client at the moment.

Once it's running smoothly I'll start to add the extra features.

The Ultimate goal is a way for people to communicate with others not a part of their usual group.

New Version available.

Had a play with the Joystick PTT to try and stop the perm transmit.
Double click the ptt if it happens which should stop it, although I've also added a timeout to the ptt (MAX TX = 10seconds).
The user list now shows who is transmitting by showing them as red.
Rules for standby frequency applied FREQUENCIES MUST BE INPUT AS 6 DIGITS WITH A DECIMAL PLACE.
Added version number in the config form as there are now a number of versions floating about.
Added which sound card is being used on startup.


Download link for the new version is the same.
Run the new installer and it will update to the last version.

Update to this..

I managed to replicate what you described above.
It only happened when SIMCOM X was first run and no previous ptt button had been set.

Does that sound like what happened to you?

If so it should be an easy fix which I'll add next time.

Before then...
Simply closing and restarting the app after the ptt has been set. Should correct it.
