I got this problem:

I run SFP1 pretty well, without any sort of issue.

The only very tedious thing i have is that the most of the times a vocal call is given, my game freezes for like 1/2 seconds.

This may sound like not a big thing, but TRUST ME, since this pops up for 8 comms given out of 10, this problem turns the game into UNPLAYABLE.

And also (i got no idea why and what is the correlation with comms) almost every single time i shoot down a plane or i see an explosion in front of me, this issue happens.

I thought it was a setting problem, maybe a graphical one, or something related to my PC, i could never ever though it was an audio file problem...

I made many tests, but after several months of testing, removing all the audio calls files from the game files, i finally discovered what was the cause of those freezes: the audio communications.

Even if the game is perfectly playable as it is right now, without any radio chatter, it would be nicer if i could play it with audio comms again, instead of just ambience, plane and weapon sounds, i really loved HQ calls, wingmen comms and radio chatter.

I have no idea what could it be that "interfers" with the game and makes it freeze whenever a call is given, or even an explosion happens. :stars:

Only removing all audio comms from game files the problem solved.

Could you help me please?  Any idea or suggestion would be great!

Thank you a lot guys! :wink:

Are you playing SF1 in Windows 10?

Have you had this problem since you installed your games?

Do you have an Nvidia graphics processor?  Nvidia graphics updates like to install their own audio drivers.  Messes up my sound on random programs.  So.. I uninstalled their audio drivers and don't let the updates re-install them.

I play on Windows 10 Home 64 bit

I always had these "stuttering issues" since i started playing it on my actual PC, 'till i removed all audio communication and chattering files from game directory. The game has turned "silent" now when i play (there isn't any kind of radio chattering or comm)

I hadn't any of these problems when i used to play it on my old Windows XP PC btw...

My specs are: Win10 Home 64 bit - NVIDIA GTX 1050Ti - i7 8750H - 16 GB RAM

Since i play it on Win10, i also had "low lag issues" as soon as i started playing it on my PC.

I had to download those "ENB patch" files and select my NVIDIA graphic card as default GPU to play the game, instead of integrated one which made me play at 5 fps.

The only problem now is the "radio comms files", which make my game stutter and freeze as i said before; the issue disappears as soon as i remove these files from game directory.

Doesn't the NVIDIA GPU bugs out if i unistall its audio drivers?

What should i do?

I wrote my PC specs and also explained the problems i have in the replies before this one btw

Thank you so much for reading those and helping me out :)

You could try uninstalling the Nvidia audio drivers and see if that fixes the problem.

If it doesn't and you have other 'buggy' problems, you can re-install the Nvidia audio drivers.

I'm not sure the Nvidia audio drivers are the problem.  Just a possible reason for your comm problems.

      Hi all, 
       
      When playing Wings Over Europe whenever I select weapon, change radar setting, gear etc it all shows up in a small box at the bottom. It tells me what weapon is selected and radar distance, i'm sure you know what i'm talking about. But when I play Strike Fighters 2 this box does not appear. Did anyone else have this problem? I have deselected then selected subtitles as its the only setting that was different from WoE.
       
      *edit: I wanted to also add that time compression does show up in the box as well as pause and unpause.
       
      Thanks

      Hi,
      After updating to October 2008 patch, the game hangs and then crashes at 60% while loading an instant or single mission.

      View File Wings Over World Menu Screens
      Wings Over World Menu Screens 
      January 13th, 2019 (1st Release)
      by Menrva

      >For Strike Fighters 2 games
      This package is my personal conversion of the beautiful Strike Fighters: Project One menu screens, with a number of enhancements for use in Strike Fighters 2. The main menu screen is a reworked version of the NACA Main Screen released by Camouflage (Checksix-fr.com). The title I chose for the main menu screen is "Strike Fighters: Wings Over World", in honor of the old WOE/WOV/WOI series of SF1 games. I find this name suitable for those who have a large mod folder spanning different world scenarios.
      Here below a quick summary of enhancements and additions:
      -All the music tracks from the SF games have been included; now there's a unique track for each screen.
      -Hangar Screen has got the hangar noise sounds which were present in the SF1 games.
      -Option to turn Lens Flare off as in the SF1 games is back.
      -Opportunity to change pilot at the Campaign Screen is reintroduced, as in the SF1 games.
      -Briefing Screen has been reintroduced for eye-candy (it has a small string "bug" with certain missions, since ThirdWire's removal of the FAC mission type).
      -Added generic _briefing.ini files for all the stock SF2 terrains (terrains without a _briefing.ini file might cause CTDs when accessing the Briefing Screen).
      -Added the missing PILOTPIC25 bitmap which is available in the SF1 games.
      -Loading Screen shows a generic runway and a new, longer loading sound is used.
      -Mission Editor DLC is supported with a new screen in the same style of the other screens.
      -Campaign Customizer DLC is supported with a new screen in the same style of the other screens.
      -Disabled unnecessary functions of the the System Menu, such as accessing ThirdWire's online site for viewing the game manual.
      As a bonus, the package includes 42 single missions taking place across all theatres of the SF2 series; most of them have been made by ThirdWire and released in their SF1 games. Five single missions are Instant Action scenarios of Strike Fighters 2, which I converted to be choosable and playable in the Single Missions Screen. Additional missions include historical scenarios created by guyran for the Israel theater. I renamed all single missions to use a nicer naming convention. Needless to say, all SF2 titles must be installed to be able to play all the missions.
      In addition, I have tweaked some Flight folder files to improve the realism of the game's HUD and in-game map. Since users may not like such changes, those files are not included by default, they must be installed manually. They can be found inside the "(Additional Tweaks)" folder. Here below a quick summary of changes they bring:
      -Disabled all the unuseful Labels when viewing the in-game map.
      -Disabled the arcade cones; lock your target and press F4 to visually track it.
      -Tweaked icons' colours so that they match the text's colours.
      -The in-game text background is less noticeable.
      -Text's font is now different, it is generally smaller and less obtrusive.
      -No more red and blue arcade squares when locking objects on; a faint yellow square is now used.
      -The white triangle showing the next waypoint is now a faint yellow, unlike the default strong white.
      -Disabled the radar box display; check the radar of your plane's cockpit, instead.

      >Credits (in no particular order):
      -ThirdWire, for the fantastic menu screens which are included in the stock SFP1 game.
      -kout, for the System Menu icon I have taken from his SF1 Grey Main Menu Replacement mod.
      -Camouflage, for the NACA Main Screen (still available at the archives of Checksix-fr.com), which I have reworked.
      -HomeFries, for the planning map enhancements available in his Semi-Transparent Map Icons package.
      -Viper63a, for the Loading sound, which I got from one of his menu mods.
      -paulopanz, for collecting and updating guyran's WOI custom missions properly to SF2 standards.
      -guyran, for the original custom missions he created for Wings Over Israel.
      -KJakker, for his interest and welcome support.
