When I fly in IL2FB AEP, I have the vioce comm text displayed. In the text, in some cases there is profanity but the sound file is G-rated. Is there a reason for this. If I want this sim to be as real as possible, is there a way to enable the profanity. I am thinking that perhaps it was either left out or disabled for younger players which I am all for.

Down load Team Sound, it's voice communication software. After installing this software go into your FB sound setting and increase your mic input and then disable voice communication within FB.

Disabling voice communication within FB will help Team Sound run better without any incompatibility with FB's voice comms. For some strange reason increasing mic input in FB's sound setting may help some users.

I think that we are talking offline? There are some speech packs available. No special key that will enable profanity.

I don't think your question is silly... but I may be coming from a different perspective. I was showing this flightsim to my father and his cousin who were both naval aviators during WWII in the pacific (one flew TBF's, the other Kingfisher floatplanes). I was showing them the BOE expansion pack with the American actor voices... when they both remarked at the profanity. It was something that wasn't always the norm they said... especially when you may be one moment away from "meeting your Maker". I was in the Air Force during the Gulf War 1990-91 version, and even in the midsts of extreme danger and possible loss of life, we tried limit the cussing and be a bit more encouraging to the people under our command. My family and I may be in the minority, but even (or perhaps especially!) in life or death matters, a person doesn't alwasys need to resort to the profane and debased things.

No offense meant... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif just my "two cents" worth. And I figured out how to turn off all the rude language files (I remember Janes WWII Fighters had a switch so that you could do it all at once...)

Do you mean,

"Good Shot! He is going to Hell!"

Or the German dirty word for poopy?


What else am I missing???

I don't care either way, but I am curious

Thanks for the thoughts guys. Yes, the "good shot, we's going to hell" is one that comes to mind and I wasn't sure if there were other instances. It's just that the voice doesn't match the text for whatever reason. I wasn't sure IF there was a config switch that I needed to enable to enjoy the game in a non-G rating. It's really no big deal though.

A little profanity now and then adds a bit to the tension. For instance, if you enjoy NASCAR and you listen to the drivers with scanners...they don't swear much, but when things get hairy sometimes, emotions can drive them to profanity which adds something to the situation. You don't hear "Oh darn, that guy cut me off".

Anyway, I guess I am now thinking about another game NASCAR Racing 2003 that had a non g-rating voice pack that added to the realism for me and was wondering if this was included in IL2FB, or if it was turned off by default. There is profanity in text but not voice which was odd to me.
