Now I don't know hoow much the BF2 engine supports this, but how much talk can be put in. I know that even bots give verbal calls when a vehicle is spotted, a snper is spotted or something. I know there is that call for medic, or needing help from one teammate or other. Now in the modern army this is done silently and proffesionally, but this is WW2! Can these be made with higher urgency so that others (including closeby enemies) can hear it, and also: How possible is chanting at enemy units? My reason for all this is that I would really really want to enter a fire fight, hearing the enemy shouting in German as the fight progesses, and hearing my British teamates calling out frantically...Over the radio AND directly to the next man... And maybe to the enemy?

I also don't know how possible it is to create voice overs when stuff goes down eg. When units run away from a grenade or an enemy vehicle trying to mow them down, how possible is it to have them put it in words "Incoming!", or "Get down!" or "Grenade!"...or sometihng. Or maybe when THEY throw the grenade, or drop a sachel (As was thankfully done in FH1)...Bt I realy want to hear em all..Even if the speaker is from the other side...

Just say it in in-game VoIP, Teamspeak, Ventrilo, whatever.

Trust me, your fellow players will love you for your little contributions to realism. For extra real-life feeling, fake different voices. Oh, won't there be fun to be had!

I usually get my "atmosphere" jollies by making "PSHHHHHBOOM! AARRRRGH RATTATTATTATTAT! BRMMM BRMMM BRMM!" noises at the monitor.

LOL....Ofcourse VOIP isn't apprently used much - And I'm thinking of both SP and online conquest. You have the option to say these things, and even if you do not, the bots would. Just as the bots can make a very good map feel scenematic, and players can make a good online game feel well-oganised, voice commands that aid this can make team play, not only fun, but more enjoyable and immersive. Not everyone is either German, Brit, American or Japanese..and not everyone is an actor...But every player plays a soldier, so we need the soldeir part in....

I agree with mydjinny here... I just love these "incoming" "stay low" "go, go, go" "bail out" shouts in FH, especially since they are heard only for the people around you, so it doesn't spam the whole team. They add to the game athmosphere quite a lot, every now and then you are able to hear enemy soldiers coming eg. in a house if they are shouting to their team-mates.

Iirc in BF2 all voice communication happens through radio and shout, so that enemys nearby, logically, will hear you talking to a radio. That was a good thing in BF2, however I'd like to know if it's possible to make voice commands only, ie shouting "medic" wouldn't be heard through radio all across the map.

how about the team just adds taunts to the list of things to scream at people (like in BFV)

Taunts seem cool, but I don't know if BF2 supports it. In BF2142, the simple voice overs are used in such a way that there is more communication going on than in BF2. If it is possible with the latter, then without even conidering taunts, there could be the right Feel. Ofcourse, I am all for taunts also...After all, we are talking WW2 here, not your modern army where the Geneva convention has issues with such things...

I agree that it adds a lot to the experience, however, having some idiot spamming the keys when your trying to be stealthy is almost as bad as the ones that are fasinated by shooting their guns into the air constantly. Someone doing that IIRL would get shot by their "buddies" for giving away their position. I remember on Crete holding this flag white as allied waiting for re-enforcements & the german said "Hold this position!" So I gave him a "Roger that! Hold your fire!":smokin:

It's always fun to give the Americans a scare when u play the Japanese. They sit on their hills and in their tanks, thinking that they are safe. So I give 'em a good "BANZAII!!!!" they turn around to establish in their mind just what the sound was, and I stab a 3 foot blade through their eye.

LOL I'm glad I'm not the only one who does that. I tend to give my clanmates my reditions of vrooooming engines and sputtering machinegun fire and final death throes.:redx:

Umm, just a side note here, but the Geneva Conventions were in effect during WW2, and in fact were first established in 1863. However, in the past 6 years Bush Inc. has made it very clear that the U.S.A. is not following them anymore, and incidences like Abu Grabe demonstrate tacet approval if not outright encouragement of this shift in policy. Heck, our Vice President doesn't consider water boarding any more uncomfortable than apple bobbing. In any case, I don't think taunting enemies across battlelines in the midst of fighting fell under those protocols--that's just part of trying to psych out your opponent.
