View Full Version : How do I activate "My_Army" chat in multi-player?

For the life of me, I've never been able to get this to work.

I'll pull up the chat bar and type my message, but then when the pop-up comes for me to choose whether I send the message to "All" or "My_Army," I am unable to select "My_Army." I've tried punching the #1 on the keypad, on the keyboard numerals...I've tried pointing my mouse cursor at it. Here's a possible hint: the #0 for "All" is white, but the #1 for "My_Army" is black. Does this mean it's de-activated somehow???

Even when I checked out one of the fine multi-player tutorials over at Airwarfare.Com, all it said to do was select "My_Army" and hit ENTER.

Is it somehow related to my "Controls" mapping? In other words, if I have the #1 assigned to another function...might that be the problem?

I'm so confused. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

I think from memory, after I type in my message and press enter once. I then use the up / down arrows to select my army or all. as easy as that. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Thanks for the reply, strewth! I never even thought about the up/down arrow keys...I'll give 'em a try next time I'm on-line!

I remember a guy that experienced same problems online... he was playing in the VVS team in a coop, and every OKl pilot was able to find the soviet fighters because he did'nt realize that he was giving his grid in the map to the other team by chat...

Trozaka is right! Every day we can learn different things.

Prepare to learn something else http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

If you scroll down below My_Army, to a free slot, type someones name in exactly as it apears on the server and the message only goes to them.
