I´m flying teh Finnish campaign and I have edited the conf.ini so that I have as much planes as possible in the air. The action is fantastic and I´m enjoying the campaign immensely, but I have a problem with the radio calls. When someone reports enemy fighters or bombers I have no way of knowing if it´s my flight leader or another flight 100 miles away. It´s equally difficult to know who´s calling for help and I´ve disengaged several times just to find out that my buddies are fine and another flight far away is having problems.

In real life I´d recognize the pilot´s voices and they would probably use flight callsigns as well. This would probably be impossible to implement into the sim anymore, but I came up with another way; what if your own flight´s radio traffic was louder than the rest? This would simulate recognition by voice and help situational awareness.

I wish your flight leader had his own unique voice so you could recognize him. Doesn't seem like it would be that difficult to program into the game.

two questions:

1: what do you edit in conf.ini to get more flights?
2: what about lag issues?
what are your specs?

You might try this post on the Tech Support Forum. You might get some help altering the sound files for louder, different voice, etc.

Changing the sound files would´n´t help, because those changes would affect every voice, not just the ones in your flight. The idea is to make your own flight´s voices recognizable.

To get lots of activity put these lines in the conf.ini:

RandomFlights=5
CampaignMissions=Hard
