Been playing IL2,FB,AE,PF since their releases but have always had a nagging question...the messages to the right of the screen, (Power 95%) or damage announcements, changes colors. What is the significance of the colors and can this display be turned off?
Thanks

There is no special significance to the colours, it's just that some colours blend into the background so it cycle through several colours for each message to be sure you can read it.

To turn it off, use Windows Notepad to open the conf.ini file in your game folder, find the [game] section and change the line NoHudLog=0 to NoHudLog=1

Actually I thought at least in the case of an engine overheat the game used shading to indicating cooling.

Thanks for the help. I can't tell you how many times I thought there was a German at my 1:00 every time the hud log turned blue.
