  1. Cant get it to work in Arma 3, changed ahk_class ArmA 2 OA to ahk_class ArmA 3, have you tried it in Arma 3?

    UPDATE: Got it working in Arma 3, just deleted the ahk_class ArmA 3 command and the ;AutoHotKey "Start/Stop Movie Capture" key $NumpadDot::send, {NumpadDot} command.

    Ya it should be compatible with any game with multiple radios, i just didn't want to say it was without testing it first.

  2. Tired of having to editing your boring real life audio out of your way more awesome video game audio because you can't set dxtory to multiple PTT buttons? Well not anymore your not.

    Some guys and I at ShackTac came up with this code for AutoHotKey that allows you to record multiple PTT keys if you are running radios. This works by mapping your radio and direct chat buttons to a dead key, then setting that dead key as your PTT key inside Dxtory, probably works with fraps too but hasn't been tested. This way you will only record audio when either of your keys are pressed.


    Recording Multiple PTT keys using Dxtory through AutoHotKeys V1.2 10/11/2013

    Current Code: 1.21 http://pastebin.com/gQnZLtCB#

    Default Radio = Capslock

    Default Direct = Mouse button 2(XButton2)

    Default Dead Key for radio = Home

    Default dead key for Dxtory Record = (=)


    This script works by setting your ACRE Radio hotkey to (home) key, then AutoHotKey will active (home) every time you hit Capslock. It will also active (=) key which will activate Dxtory's PTT and start recording your voice.

    Don't ask me why you have to reroute your ACRE radio to Home and can't just use Capslock like always, I have no idea why but bad/weird things happen if you don't reroute ACRE radio to Home key(or any other dead key of your choice).

    ;To change Dxtory PTT key, change script (=) to your key

    ;edit script below by finding "ahk_class ArmA 2 OA"

    ;You must find ACRE_Keys.hpp in your Arma directory

    ;don't ask cause i can't tell you why, but if you don't set
