F++ team,

 

If possible, would you consider a new feature for a future release?  Specifically, is it possible for MCE to suppress all functions when a specific key is depressed? To illustrate this notion, consider communicating with a controller while flying on VATSIM.  I'd like for MCE to suspend all operations when the "push to talk" key is pressed.  If necessary, MCE could hard-code the key and we (i.e. VATSIM/IAVO users) could simply alter our PTT options within our clients (e.g. SB4, Vpilot, etc...). Maybe have MCE enter a while loop while the key is pressed? I believe this might be a better option than clicking the microphone on the GUI.  

Also, I've noticed the VR call is exceptionally late; sometimes 15 IAS after the inputted value.  Has anyone else reported this anomaly?  

 

Again, thank you for developing the best product the FS world!

I think is allready done, did you read the manual?

 

Manual, "How to interact with virtual co-pilot":

 

Bear in mind, that the key END of the keyboard has been designated as some sort of microphone mute button. So if you want to temporarily disable all recognition, hold down the END key

 

 

 

This is what are you talking?

Ahhh...so use the End key for PTT?  Thanks you, Robert.  I should have known these guys programmed that in...

As Robert pointed out, the END key is hard coded by default. But If you need a different key, it is possible to define which key MCE listens to by editing fsInsider.ini

Is posible to set a diferent key for "mute mic" other than NUM LOCK?

No, NumLock is for long periods of speech inactivity. It works like a Toggle, not a PTT. Couldn't use the CAPS LOCK because the sim will constantly disable it, and since the NumLock has a keyboard light which signals when it's ON, it seemed like a good choice.

 

If you need another PTT for Vatsim, go to FSX installation folder and open "fsInsider.ini"

 

Change "VatsimPTT=0" to "VatsimPTT=key_number"

 

key_number should correspond to the ASCII decimal value in the following table.

Examples

 

To use space bar as PTT, set "VatsimPTT=32"

 

To use CTRL key (left or right) as PTT, set "VatsimPTT=17"

 

Have not tested all keys, but should have plenty of choice.

 

You must restart FSX/P3D/FS9, before the key status is tracked by fsInsider.dll which in turn will inform MCE.
