[Request] Multiple Push To Talk keys!
« on: August 01, 2013, 05:54:43 am »
I have noticed that there is another post on this forum about this problem already. sorry for doubleposting
----------------------------------------------
Hey everyone. i just bought dxtory hoping that this would fix my problem but it didn't.
before i bought dxtory i was using fraps. now i am an arma 2 player meaning i have 2 push to talks on teamspeak "Caps lk" is radio and "V" is my local voice chat. previously i had to do a continuous transmission to record both radio  and local chats therefore making the job of editing 100 times longer and more tedious.

Since the dxtory has a feature witch allows you to have several voice recording devices why not make those devices have their own push to talk for example audio stream 1 is bound to caps lk while audio stream 2 is locked to V. that would really solve my problem and i think its an amazing feature to have since most of the games nowadays have a teamspeak meaning if you have a whisperlist and u want viewers to hear it its quite impossible and the viewer gets confused if i am getting spoken to by someone but they cant hear my response to them.

Sorry for my grammar. its not perfect  :S

Thnakyou!

I came here to make this exact request. In certain games, I have up to FIVE different PTT keys for various comms channels. It would be nice to have multiple keys to account for this. =)

Agree!
I to use several push to talk keys depending on the game and who I am talking to etc.
I do not want EVERYTHING I say or sounds I make to be recorded so un-ticking the push to talk option wont fix my issue.



A example of single game multi push to talk is Arma 2 with the ACRE radio mod.
It uses TeamSpeak 3 to simulate actual radios ingame. You have the normal TS3 push to talk which is your local voice. As in talking to people next to you ingame, but you also have a totally separate key that is used for the ingame radios. Currently you can not setup Dxtory to have two voice channels with separate push to talk keys.


YouTube example: ( Random ACRE video I found )

A possible solution is to remove the push to talk key from the HotKey menu and adding it next to the push to talk tick box in the Audio menu. That way a person can set how many sound streams he want and select a push to talk key for each audio stream and it wont mess up the hotkeys menu with multiple push to talk options.

Simple example DxTory: ( Push to talk key for this audio stream is "Page down" )

Bump.

[3rd party ArmA 2/3 ACRE FIX] Using AutoHotkey. Download: http://www.autohotkey.com/
Its a small program where you can run scripts via text files.
These files can be edited with Notepad etc and uses the .ahk file extensions.

1) Set DxTory hotkey to your !TeamSpeak 3 local chat key!
2) Download and install AutoHotkey.
3) Copy, paste and edit script into a .ahk file via Notepad.
4) Save and double click the file. A H tray icon should show up. You are now running a script. Right click it for more options.

Script: (Edit as needed! AutoHotKey, key names)
A = ACRE Radio key.
B = TeamSpeak local key.
( Remember to also change the Keywait A to your correct ACRE radio key! )

; ---------------------------------
; ACRE DxTory.
$A::
Send, {A down}
sleep 50
Send, {B down}
KeyWait A
Send, {A up}
Send, {B up}
Return
; ---------------------------------


My example of the script:
; ---------------------------------
; ACRE DxTory.
$NumpadDot::
Send, {numpaddot down}
sleep 50
Send, {c down}
KeyWait NumpadDot
Send, {numpaddot up}
Send, {c up}
Return
; ---------------------------------


Extra script on off via button with sound:
; ---------------------------------
; Script on/off.
$PrintScreen::
Suspend,Toggle
SoundPlay, %A_WinDir%\Media\Speech On.wav
return
; ---------------------------------



Final note... Technically there is no reason why this shouldnt work for more PTT keys.
The only important trick is that while you are pushing down a secondary or tertiary etc PTT key you are also, via a script, pushing down the actual DxTory PTT hotkey. Resulting in your voice being recorded in Dxtory .AVI file. The DxTory hotkey, for other stuff than ACRE, dosent even have to be a "real" PTT key. Its just the the "record my voice" key pushed down at the same time as your real PTT key for teamspeak or whatever is being pushed down...





Edit:
Added "sleep 50" (or use "sleep 150") to the script so that there is a millisecond break (you wont be able to say A before the break is over...) between communication key and recording key being pressed down. This to prevent the recoding key being pressed "first" and you not hearing the ACRE radio send sound when using the radio.
