Help displaying weapon, radar distance, etc on screen

Recommended Posts

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

This is controlled by the MESSAGESYSTEM config file in the FLIGHT folder.

Mine looks like this


TextFontName=Arial
TextSize=15

[MessageSystem]
MaxMessages=1
MessageTime=2.0
MessageFadeTime=3.0

;MaxMessages=25
;MessageTime=200
;MessageFadeTime=2.5

[MessageWindow]
BackgroundImage=TextBackground.tga
TopLeftPosition=0.01,0.845
BottomRightPosition=0.210,0.865
VerticalBorder=0.0015
HorizontalBorder=0.008

;TopLeftPosition=0.2,0.2
;BottomRightPosition=0.8,0.985
;VerticalBorder=0.0015
;HorizontalBorder=0.008

 

Best to use extractor file to get it to show up. If your WOE version is working, copy it across to your WOV flight folder

MESSAGESYSTEM.INI

      I installed this Me 262 mod (This one) into my SF2 folder and it works fine except there's no guns. Don't know why.

      I just got SF2 yesterday and I can't figure out how to install mods. My install is patched up to the July 2013 version and I placed a mod folder. I followed the instructions in using the F-89 mod and it doesn't pop up in the aircraft selection menu.

      Hi everyone,
      I need help to change the date in "single mission" in the amazing ODS (Operation Desert Storm) mod for SF2
      It lets me choose between years 1990-1991-1992
      As soon as i end a mission and, for example, i get a medal or an award, it ofc says the date the sortie has been done...
      The problem is: since i can only choose the year, and not the month in mission menu, the date is randomically chose (for example i very often get months like august or december, even if the war had been fought only between the second half of January and February 1991, not any other month)
      How can i choose the month and day i want to fly for a single mission? So that i can choose the actual days the war happened instead of random 1991 months?
      I hope i explained well and that a solution can be found.
      I already tried changing Start Year and End Year date with January 1991 and February 1991, but nothing happened
      I truly love this mod, and imho it's absolutely perfect, but this is the only thing that "ruins" a bit (like getting a medal which says i flew over Iran on April 1991) and i'd like to fix it but idk how 
      Thank you so much for helping me, seriously

      After a crash, my Strike Fighters 2 Europe keys appear all set as unassigned.
      There's no way i can set 'em.
      Even if i bind them, they still be unassigned.
      I EVEN TRIED REINSTALLING THE GAME, and they are STILL all unassigned...
      I seriously have no idea of what to do, since this happened only in Europe and not in vanilla game or North Atlantic. 
      There's also another problem: keys look "bugged" in SF2 NA, since i binded all of them, but some still don't work.
      As these won't be enough, they're bugged also because if i set a key for a specified control, and then i try to unassign it re-pressing the same key on another command, instead of unassigning the first command, it glitches and i can set two or more commands with the same key... this clearly bugged out 
      Could you please help and tell me what can i do to "unbug" all of this mess?
      Thank you a lot guys, i appreciate your help so much
