Well it happens sometimes. search for pics of firebombing results. You'll see what I eamn. Is it nice? no. Is there a better term? maybe. but its blunt and to the point.

I find it leads to nasty images in my head, but, then again, if you don't want to emulate the reality of war for what it is, nobody requires you to play.

It`s a tongue in cheek comment. Obviously the original guy was bored with "X is burning." and tried something funny.

But he isn`t really dead is he. He`s sat by his computer, thinking, "Bugger, I got killed again!"

Unless, of course, what happens in the game is actually played out for real in parallel universe. It is my conjecture that our joystick inputs etc pass through a hole in the very fabric of the space-time continuum so that means that every time our virtual pilot gets toasted, someone, somewhere really is bubbling like a kebab on a spit.

Now, I really must go for a nap after that bottle of vodka.

raaid, macabe humor is commonplace in war. It helps take some of the stress off. Many phrases seem compassionless but are meant to deflect some of the horror of war. On the other hand, when applied to an enemy, it helps dehumanize them and makes their death, (especailly if at your own hand), easier to rationalize. War is h e l l, as it should be.
Go into your "i18" folder, choose "netmessages_properties" and change or remove the offending line(s)

I've modified the heck out of mine.

You can get rid of it easily, there are two options:

1. Edit the message in the file of text messages, you can find it in the i18 folder in your game folder IIRC; OR

2. Turn off the highgore option in conf.ini, if I remember right you only get the extra crispy message if you have highgore=1

Raaaid is right.

I've editted my message to say " Pilot X is trapped in his burning cockpit, screaming in agony, calling for his mother, while his fuel soked flesh is flaming away,.......oh wait, he stopped moving. Nevermind, you're next."

I feel much better now. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif

Or you could do it without the words! This evening on Red Orchestra, I managed to hit 6 people with PTRD rounds. For those of you that don't know, a PTRD fires a 14.5mm round that is normally used for anti-tank purposes. Needless to say, there wasn't much left of them.

Then, of course, the map changed and I played for the Axis as a PAK Soldat, cruising with an MP-40 and 3 Panzerfausts. I was about to turn and fire my "faust" at a T-34 when it opened fire with its main gun at my buddy 30 yards away. Direct hit. His body exploded into a big pool of blood. I could not have been more disgusted and angry. So I did the same to the tankers by blowing a nice hole in there with my Panzerfaust. Now EVERYONE's roasted extra crispy in that T-34!

Wow, I haven't even seen most of those messages in the net_messages file. Such as:

lightfuel
lighteng
blowtail
pk (it only ever says soandso has been killed)
headshot
etc.
etc.

Now I know I've shot off plenty of tail's, killed many a pilot, set plenty of planes a blaze, whatever, but none of these messages have ever showed up (highgore is enabled). Were they disabled in a patch or something?

As a matter of interest, how exactly can we make the incineration of an unfortunate pilot a positive experience?

Do you propose that we perhaps tell him or her that they are in fact experiencing the fruits of "deferred success"?

Or maybe they are "thermolitically challenged"?

Doesn't exactly sound glorified though. And after what that pilot goes through, he don't look like "glory" no more.

Being burned alive in a tumbling cockpit takes the "L" out of "glory".

I actually prefer the extra crispy virtual pilots in IL2 over the original recipe 7 herbs and spices version......Though in the end it really doesn't matter as they both taste like chicken.
