In your game folder find the Users folder. It will have a folder for each pilot you have created and each of those will have a file called "settings.ini". Open each one in notepad and make sure the [HotKey orders] section of the file looks like this:

[HotKey orders]
Escape = deactivate
Tab = activate
0 = order0
1 = order1
2 = order2
3 = order3
4 = order4
5 = order5
6 = order6
7 = order7
8 = order8
9 = order9

I have found that they never comply when I tell them to change formation. They actually say: roger, changing to VIC formation or whaterver they say, but nothing ever happens.. They always stay in exactly the same formation no matter what you tell them and they say yhey will do!

That's odd...changing formation is one of the few things my wingmen actually do when I tell them. ;-)

hmmm... they always follow formation commands for me but...VIC formation is a three plane deal - maybe they wont do that if there are four in your flight?...

try line astern or eschelon right/left...it should work.

Tully - I have the same problem as the thread starter...sometimes...

I checked all of the pilot folders and the command lines are right, but sometimes in QMB, I have all the flights highlighted in comms and can give them all radio commands...and sometime only my flight is highlighted. In QMB I should always be able to control all friendly flights right?...
