Ok, I send a message to "MY ARMY" or whatever it is that says "Hello, I'm a friendly bomber and would request escort over this town at this height en route to bomb this enemy airfield".

If some wiley opponent has his radio set to "enemy frequency" does he see my chat message, or does that solely relate to in-game audio chatter?

Cheers, Spinner

No...if you set it to My Army it only goes to your team.

There are no radio frequencies in a Dogfight server. In COOP there are...but that'd only be for orders passed...not chat messages.

Ok thanks guys. That makes arranging a formation a little safer than I'd feared!

Is there anyway to scroll up to previous messages? Sometimes someone will type something but then it's quickly replaced with a system message of "joe shot out jim's controls" etc. Very annoying.

You can open the chat window and use the "PageUp" and "PageDown" keys on your keyboard to scroll though the various chat messages that people have sent.

First of all, yes the chat window and radio are totally seperate. The radio only issues orders to AI and can be spied on by enemy pilots. The team chat bar however is to your team only and cannot be spied on unless you have a traitor who then resends the message on universal chat or via a comm.

In regards to the chat bar itself, yes you can scroll it with the page up and page down keys when opened as has already been said. You can also left click the top or bottom half of the lines of text in it to do the same thing. The very bottom of the bar under the preset messages you can make can be drug to expand or shrink the size of the box as well. This will allow you to have more than 1 line of messages if you would like (I recommend 3 lines). And finally you can even drag the entire box to anywhere on the screen you like by dual clicking an edge and dragging. This also applies to the inflight map.

Thanks Maj_Death for that last tip, that's very useful!
