i don't know, it was just a small idea that came to me at some point yesterday. it wouldn't even really be that big of a deal if you didn't put it in. but i was thinking for certain campaigns, certain voice commands could have variations... let me give an example. - the U.S. forces on the western front could say "kraut tank spotted over the horizon!" and in the pacific they could shout "jap armor in my line of sight!" another example... - the british could shout "german heavies over the horizon!" this isn't so much of a racial slur, but noting the attention to detail that is possible. a favorite line of mine from the movie U-571 is "the tommies are crapping all over us!" (in german) as they were being depth charged by a british destroyer.
This would definitley add to the atmosphere, but keep in mind that the devs don't exactly have any recording studio lying around.
Well, Lobo might have stolen one...
I agree, it would be nice to have that in Forgotten Hope. Better to hear "Geries!" than "Enemy infantry spoted!".
I didn't make it!
Yes and dont make a radio sound. Make it were only people around you can hear you. Only if your a scout and you have a radio on your back. Then it sounds liek a radio.
Or in a vehicle. Although, I don't believe that not making it a radio sound for the majority of infantry and for the sniper could be supported in the engine. It would be a nice change however to have it change for the theater, for a little more of the realistic touch- the reason why we play FH instead of vanilla.
Did the germans have terms to adress the allies like the allies did for the axis (jerries, krauts, japs,...) I regularly hear the Germans shout "Amies" when i play Brothers In Arms
I would love to see a heavy Bavarian dialect. F7 F7 could be "LOS ODER I REISS DIA'N OASCH AUF BIS ZU'N OAN"
I take what n0e says way too seriously

oh that would be great for that one scottish airbourn unit in market garden, you know the one with sean connery in "a bridge too far". i dont think you should have a recording studio to re-create battlefield radio chatter. but at least replace the whiney american "i need air support", the little piss-ant sounds like he will throw a fit if he dont get what he wants.
I'm not worried about FH team not having recording studio, I'm worried they won't be able to find good voice actors to create new voices for BF2. They certainly can't reuse BF1942 voices - even if they did, they would still have several missing phrases.

No, it's not a name for Americans, I think it's just word "amir", they just spell a "throat r" letter. If I'm correct it means something like enemy, intruder maybe.
