DCS: F-14 Tomcat: Jester AI LANTIRN Tutorial


Calling @Chaz, have you tried this with VAICOM yet? I’ve yet to get the Jester Options command to bring up the Jester wheel menu as stated on page 49 of the manual.

Figured it out. Looking at the VA log, it was interpreting Jester as gesture, so I switched to the phrase, “RIO options”, which worked. Now someone needs to do a video, hint hint :wink:

" @chipwich, you’ll get your RIO when you get to the ship. And if you don’t, give me a call. I’ll fly with you." :sunglasses:

“Jester… Lester?!.. Fester… Chester!!.. Pester!!! …” (oh the joys of voice recognition software)

This is on my radar for a video demo. The VAICOM developer recently stated he will update the commands list to include all of the new LANTIRN commands so I think I’ll wait for that release. Then there will be no need to the Jester options wheel.


Been a while but I’ve had the most joyful experience of flying the Cat with…I’ll just call him “Bob” for now…on a CAS mission and never having to touch the ‘wheel’.

I’ve long forgotten all the commands. With the Apache coming I’m sure it’ll be even longer. But it all keeps me off the streets at night :slight_smile:

Haha, anytime I have that happen I add it as an alias (I think that’s what it’s called).
So like, Jester, Gesture, Duster, etc all do the same thing.

Also definitely get the Jester kneeboards, with all the commands organized nicely.

Thanks Phantom88. Tricker’s videos are usually entertaining. Looking forward to flying this mission. Off of cat 4, didn’t he want to make a left clearing turn? :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:
