Online, whenever i join a coop or dogfight, i miss the briefing text. I see the map, can choose side, plane and load-out but i dont see any briefing text. In an online war i can always ask my squad what the goals are because we use TeamSpeak. But with no squad-members around it's a different story.

However, when i host, there is no problem. Then i do see the text! Strange problem.

I reinstalled the game already 4 times (with deleting all the Register-entries! otherwise the problem keeps existing!), but i am hoping for some useful answers here..

Anybody..?

Can you see it after you pick your plane? sometimes on servers with objectives I cannot see the brief until a base and plane are chosen.

If I may speak for Jojoshooter...

he is always asking us for the mission targets and stuff..

but still its very irritating he hasn't his brieving.. especially when he is flying alone..

No, that makes no difference

Sometimes the briefing screen can be "scrolled up" so that text isn't visible. Try clicking in the briefing text area then pressing PgeUp or PgeDown keys a few times.

I have a similar problem where I can see the first part of the brief after I've chosen my base but the rest is blank and I can't scroll down.

Going into the customize aircraft menu and then back out fixes the problem.

Hope that helps.

That's a normal bug that everyone gets. It has been in the game for a long time. It depends on the length of the briefing and the resolution used to view it. Picking a plane on the arming screen and returning to the briefing is the correct workaround.

JoJo, can you confirm that the mission 'properties' files are being successfully uploaded to your mission cache? Also, does the problem exist offline, or only online?

Antifreeze: this problem only occurs online when i join. When i host everything is fine. So that includes a "yes" to your question if the properties files are uploaded to the mission cache.
So it has nothing to do with the bug others describe.

Anyway, i appreciate the given comments very much! Thanx for that.
But i guess there's no known way of solving it, so i do my 5th. reinstall of the whole game..got nothing better to do anyway!
