Task Force Arrowhead Radio

Recommended Posts

Custom keybindings that worked in the original radio_keys.hpp now fail when added via the in-game menu.

They seem to have lower priority than before, and now cannot override the implicit ARMA3 bindings.

An issue I'd like to report is that using custom radio sounds leads to TS crashing repeatedly.

Also, aside from all the sound-related problems, the menu in the CBA keybindings thing is slow to load and reloads every time a new keybind is added/made with no organization thereof.

E.g. SW Menu, LR Menu, DD Menu appear first in that order (roughly) when first loading the keybindings menu. Upon it reloading, they get shuffled elsewhere.

Ok, convert files to 48000 stereo PCM.

CBA keybinding menu done not by me....

Could you provide an example of such keybinding?

Direct chat sounds really tinny with the 0.9.3 update, did I miss something?

Only three pages worth of discussion :D

There was a fixed plugin download a few pages back, if you use that the quality is good BUT the stereo channels are reversed. It might be best to wait for the hotfix.

Great update! However I think the direct voice chat that now sounds like everyone is talking on a phone should be changed back to just a normal voice.

Quick question. When I transmit via TFAR, I notice I no longer have the sound. Any idea why?

I guess he might have the same issue I had. The squawk sound when pressing the buttons don't work when you play via the editor. It did work as soon as I got onto a server.

People still seem a bit to quiet in this update though, would be nice if it was increased back up a bit.

Not completely sure what your asking, but the reversed stereo thing and the robot noise are both fixed. All the new features are nice as well. As for the volume, I think it should be raised back up to be around the levels before the new update.

Also seems like the Long Range volume when on speakers is really quiet as well.

Hey nkey,

damn you are fast with your fixes and i really like where all this is heading ^^

So, i am working on a bunch of different soundpacks for the radios like local PTT-Sounds and remote roger beeps.

Is it possible to build in an option to choose between soundpacks ingame, even for different radiotypes like "soundpack x" for SW and "soundpack y" for airborne?

It also would be nice to sepperate the airborne radiosounds to fixedwing and rotarywing (the AH64D has another rogerbeep than a F/A-18...)

Will think about it, not bad idea.

Use 48000 Kz 2 channels PCM for sounds.

Thanks!

Check...

I will give you my first pack to experiment with when it's done. But it might take a week or two. I have to wait for my CB-Radios i just ordered to simulate the beeps ^^

  • Full support for Zeus (can use radios, can hear, can talk even though controlled unit)

This is long awaited, but we've actually found a tiny challenge with this. Our Zeus usually combines a role as HQ and Zeus, and occasionally remotes AI. Problem now is that he can't be reached as HQ when he's remote controlling another unit.

Best case would be to have access to both options, selecting if audio should be connected to curator/Zeus, or the controlled unit. This might be a bit difficult, though.

As far as I remember he should here its own radio while control unit. Is it?

New FADAK display looks unrealistic somehow, at least in .paa. I mean, it looks like the frequency wouldn't look good on it.

Could you provide screenshots of it in-game, both of day and night versions?

Oh. Can't remember if I did test that. Will report back later.

Thanks for the hotfix, nkey. Works almost perfectly now. The only thing that I find a bit too weak is the stereo effect itself, i.e. the separation of the speakers is IMO a bit too low. What I mean is that the voice of the speaker appears a bit too close to the center when he is standing to the side of you.

Other than that, all issues are gone. Great job, and thanks for the quick reaction. I love the new Speakers feature, it's great to be able to hear e.g. a vehicles radio when it was switched to speakers. Immersion with this mod is getting better and better.

I wish you the best of luck in the MakeArmaNotWar contest :)
