DCS Simple Radio has been updated to Version 1.5.3.5

Get it HERE (DCS SIMPLE RADIO)

Change log
REQUIRES SERVER & CLIENT VERSION 1.5.3.1 or newer - NOT COMPATIBLE WITH ANYTHING BEFORE 1.5.3.1

For the server you need to open TCP PORTS 5002 + 5003 unless you’ve changed the server port using the server config file.

Banned IPs are added to a file created where ever the server is run called banned.txt. To unban, just delete the IP from the file and restart the server.

The server will always open TWO TCP ports - one you can control with the Config file, the other is always +1 above the setting in the config. If you cant press PTT but everything else looks fine - this is why :+1:

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
To install or update, extract ALL the files from the zip into a folder and just run the installer which’ll replace any previous version installed automatically

.NET version 4.6.2 Required - PLEASE INSTALL THIS - https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/details.aspx?id=53345

If you’re on Windows N edition (No media components installed) then install this (you’ll know when you get the audio initialisation error!) - https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/3145500/media-feature-pack-list-for-windows-n-editions

KNOWN BUG: If you get lag while using the radio, press L Ctrl + L Shift + L to fix. This is a DCS bug i’m trying to work around and triggered by pressing L Ctrl + L. It doesnt matter if that key is bound or not, it’ll still cause lag when you press it

Changelog

  • Added connection status indicators - Now tracks game export and game gui broadcasts to signal fully working DCS connection as well as VOIP and Server TCP connection status
  • EAM name should no longer be overwritten
  • Fixed for concurrent access bug causing excessive logging (and other issues) - This release is backwards compatible but it’s recommend all servers to update to this version when possible!
  • Added Yak 52 support and expansion radios - Requires always allow SRS hotkeys to be on to be used
  • Added expansion radios to L39 - Requires always allow SRS hotkeys to be on to be used
  • Added basic log rotate
  • Improved Installer Saved Games checker logic to make sure saved games folder is used

Thanks to you all for the support - SRS Team (MorpheusXAUT and Ciribob)

DCS / VR Overlay & Overlay Configuration

The overlay has 4 states, hidden, small, small+volume & full that you can see by pressing Left Control + Left Shift + Escape by default.

The Full state has a title bar that you can click and drag the window around with. The window position will be saved for when DCS is next opened.

The radio status is removed after 5 seconds if SRS is closed or loses server connection

To configure the overlay hotkey, run DCS once to create a config file in Saved Games\DCS\Config which will look something like so and quit DCS:

I love me some SRS - helps with the atmosphere (zzclick). Plus, not seen that VR overlay before, so keen to give that a go now. Normally with VR on I just peer under my nose (the English are taught this from birth :clown_face:) at my second screen to see what teamspeak is up to, so this sounds much clever than that.

SRS is no longer signed (certificate expired) - so Windows smart screen will pop up - just hit More Info, then ok :+1:

The Full state has a title bar that you can click and drag the window around with. The window position will be saved for when DCS is next opened.

The radio status is removed after 5 seconds if SRS is closed or loses server connection

To configure the overlay hotkey, run DCS once to create a config file in Saved Games\DCS\Config which will look something like so and quit DCS:

config = { [“mode”] = “minimum”, [“hotkey”] = “Ctrl+Shift+escape”, [“windowPosition”] = { [“y”] = 342, [“x”] = 981, }, – end of [“windowPosition”] } – end of config

Edit the “Hotkey” section and add the characters from the keyboard you’d like to use instead. i.e

config = { [“mode”] = “minimum”, [“hotkey”] = “Ctrl+Shift+1”, – now uses the combination of ctrl shift and 1 together to toggle [“windowPosition”] = { [“y”] = 342, [“x”] = 981, }, – end of [“windowPosition”] } – end of config

Fixed Channels

Fixed channels can be created for all FC3 aircraft and all expansion radios for Non FC3.

Channel presets are created per Radio - full list of names & frequencies here https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1tzd996zJ1t0heZ-t1PpL7vNUIZbXl7pI6De0GThN1Qw/edit#gid=1869108790 )

Preset files are named after the radio (no special characters needed & case is ignored) and are text files with a single frequency on each line.

For example, to create a fixed channel list for the first UHF radio in the F15C:

Create a file called ANARC-164 UHF1.txt or anarc164 UHF1.txt where you installed SimpleRadio Standalone (where the client exe is), add frequencies and save. Example also attached

The file will be automatically loaded when that radio appears on an aircraft. The frequency list can also be manually reloaded with the reload button
