#513749 Hello developers and fellow vPilot users,

As I run my flightsim audio through my speakers and my VATSIM voice through my headset during departure and arrival, I have to switch vPilot's audio output setting from my headset to my speakers during cruise, and back again during the descent. (As is often done in real life) Would it be possible to add a little toggle switch on the main UI to switch between two pre-determined audio devices to make this process a little more seamless?

I would love to hear what the devs think of this.

Regards

#513753 This is something that has been requested once or twice in the past, but I haven't gotten the sense that it's a feature a lot of users would benefit from, so I haven't added it. I've made a note of the request though.

Ernesto, how does FSInn's intercom feature work?

I can't speak for how the FSInn intercom used to work, as I never used that feature. I'm hopeful to see it implemented in vPilot someday, however!

#514428 It works like this in FSInn
To start, there are 3 sound devices to configure, not just for headset and microphone, but also for speakers:

Then there is a little floating voicepanel, where you can select which com radio to use, and also to route the voice output over the speakers instead of the headset.

If you click on the little speaker next to com1 (the left one), it will route the voice output over the speakers.

I also think that's a very handy feature, if you need to step away for a few seconds and put your headset down. But you will still hear the controller calling you.

#514444 Couldn't you just switch the audio device in vPilot's settings? Sure, it would take 5 mouse clicks rather than 1, but that still doesn't seem too bad.
