Encountered a problem with VBS3?

Hello and Welcome to the VBS2/VBS3 Forums Community!

We'd like to take a moment to remind you that if you are encountering a problem in VBS3 or have a question for BISIM, please check out our KnowledgeBase (with its ever-expanding collection of articles) and if you still can't find what you are looking for, you can enter a ticket (if support contract valid) through our Support Portal. Both are located at

We ask that if you submit a support ticket that you include: VBS3 version, hasp .c2v file, any relevant configs or source files, and reproduction steps. This last on is very important for us to be able to provide you with a timely conclusion.

Additionally, we have some great DIY resources to be found here: (excellent for scripting)

    The current in game VBS Radio is not meeting our current needs. You can change freqs but the freqs do not remain. Can also change channel names and colors. We need to be able to build a commo plan that has for instance BN CMD - BN FIRES - PSG - PLT LDR - CDR..... When listed under Blufor everyone talk to everyone which just bogs down the entire net.
    Are we missing something or is this all the radio can currently do?

    I guess that you need the Pro version to be able to do that.


    "The VBS Radio Pro version is available for purchase as an add-on to VBS3 and offers unlimited channels and allows configuration of radio network presets, enabling users to customize channel names, colors, icons and enable saving and loading of networks per mission. VBS Radio Pro also features distance-based degradation that can also be influenced by weather effects in the simulation and provides support for sidetone playback."

      Agreed. We ran into the same issue and unfortunately came to the same conclusion. One partial workaround is that a new radio channel is created for groups. For example, if you group a squad together while building a scenario, they will all have a separate group radio channel in addition to the BLUFOR channel that the Platoon leader can talk on. The issue of course is that the Platoon Leader won't be able to listen in or talk on the squad's group channel unless he is a part of the group, and individual units can only be a part of one group at a time.
