i was just wondering why when you fly an RAF plane, the voices are all in Russian and not british

for example, when i tell a wingman to engage an enemy formation he blabbers(no malice intended) something in russian that you cant understand.

why didnt they just make it like :

Yes roger that rabbit leader

Tally Ho !

Lookout chaps....etc etc



is it asking to much?
am i whining?
do i even exist?

Someone was working on an RAF voice patch.

Currently the only thing you can do is use the American voices. Something along the lines of creating a new directory and copying the American file into it. I forget the detail (search the forum for 'voice')

Regards,

Copy the contents of US speech directory and paste it into the Russian speech directory.

It comes out with American accents and phrases but at least you can understand what they're saying.

Unlike Ven, of course, who is just babbling.

He's delirious again, I expect./i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Well, you need to check your map. You're not in a RAF plane over Dover. You're in a British-built VVS plane over the Soviet Union. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Vengeanze, its actually:
"It's raining cats and dogs"

"lets return to base for some tea and crumpets"
"Roger that, tally ho!"
"Its a jolly nice day today, lets go kill some jerrys"
"Yes, lets go kill the Bosch."
"You're 'avin a bath if you fink you're 'alf inchin' that" (Quote from Band of Brothers)

I'm British, but I find the stereotypes quite funny.

To be able to fare well,
To avoid the frustration of misfortune,
That, in this world, is happiness.

Now look here Ginger, i know it's a jolly bad show but the answers to your questions are:

Yes
Yes
Only you can answer the last one

However the, rotter that suggested copying the American voice files over needs a good spanking.

Why replace one foreign language with another one?

The Banter Sketch from Monty Python's Flying Circus ****

(Scene: a wartime RAF station)

Jones: Morning, Squadron Leader.
Idle: What-ho, Squiffy.
Jones: How was it?
Idle: Top-hole. Bally Jerry, pranged his kite right in the how's-your-father;
hairy blighter, dicky-birded, feathered back on his sammy, took a waspy,
flipped over on his Betty Harpers and caught his can in the Bertie.
Jones: Er, I'm afraid I don't quite follow you, Squadron Leader.
Idle: It's perfectly ordinary banter, Squiffy. Bally Jerry, pranged his kite
right in the how's-your-father; hairy blighter, dicky-birded, feathered
back on his sammy, took a waspy, flipped over on his Betty Harpers and
caught his can in the Bertie.
Jones: No, I'm just not understanding banter at all well today. Give us it
slower.
Idle: Banter's not the same if you say it slower, Squiffy.
Jones: Hold on then -- Wingco! -- just bend an ear to the Squadron Leader's
banter for a sec, would you?
Chapman: Can do.
Jones: Jolly good. Fire away.
Idle: Bally Jerry... (he goes through it all again)
Chapman: No, I don't understand that banter at all.
Idle: Something up with my banter, chaps?

GRAMS: AIR RAID SIRENS
(Enter Palin, out of breath)

Palin: Bunch of monkeys on the ceiling, sir! Grab your egg-and-fours and
let's get the bacon delivered!
Chapman (to Idle): Do *you* understand that?
Idle: No -- I didn't get a word of it.
Chapman: Sorry, old man, we don't understand your banter.
Palin: You know -- bally tenpenny ones dropping in the custard!
(no reaction)
Palin: Um -- Charlie choppers chucking a handful!
Chapman: No no -- sorry.
Jones: Say it slower, old chap.
Palin: Slower *banter*, sir?
Chapman: Ra-ther.
Palin: Um -- sausage squad up the blue end?
Idle: No, still don't get it.
Palin: Um -- cabbage crates coming over the briny?
The others: No, no.

(Film of air-raid)

Idle (voice-over): But by then it was too late. The first cabbage crates hit
London on July the 7th. That was just the beginning.

(Chapman seen sitting at desk, on telephone)

Chapman: Five shillings a dozen? That's ordinary cabbages, is it? And what
about the bombs?... Good Lord, they _are_ expensive.

The manual claims that RAF pilots will hear US voices by default.

Not on my system I don't! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif
