I really love this sim, but don't like the Russian speech or the German speech while in flight. Can I get it changed to English? I do apologize strongly if this has been addressed in the past. Thanks in advance.

you have to buy a sperate addon called battle over europe, the one luthier is involved in. Its just skins missions campaign generator and germ rus to english speech pack. for 29 its not worth it to me.

You can try www.mudmovers.com (http://www.mudmovers.com) I think they have speech packs there.

OT: you'd think seeing as this is a russian game, the russian speech would actually be proper russian. But noo... what they say makes sense, but I don't think anyone actually talks like they do. (I'm ex-Soviet btw, so I know..)
For instance if you call an AI wingman to assist you, he might respond with "I will be near". That sounds a little odd in English, and definitely awkward in Russian.

It's very simple if you have IL2 Forgotten Battles.

You have in the speech folder (Default location: C:\Program Files\Ubi Soft\IL-2 Sturmovik Forgotten Battles\samples\Speech) a file called GB or US, both have the same speech files so it doesn't matter which one you take.

Open the GB or US folder, hit Control + A to select all, then hit Control + C to copy, then go out of the folder and open the RU folder and hit Control + V to paste, click yes when it asks if it should overwrite the exisiting files, then do the same for the DE folder.

Now the Russians and the Germans in the sim both speak English.

Leadspitter is right about the speech pack at Mudmovers, and if you try the other method of pasting the US sounds into the other folders, you may want to back those other sounds up somewhere so you do not lose them. You may want them later.

You can also use the browse CD option and pull them off there if you want to Russian or German Speech back, but yes, A backup is wise.
