What if some programers got a hold of Hearme or Firetalk and put togeather a patch so that, using voicechat, we could talk to our Allies in the multiplayer missions? That would be so cool! It would make organizing the missions so easy! I think someone should get a hold of Firechat or Hearme and do that! It would be awasome!

It would indeed be excellent, my friends.

I will see if any of my friends could help us, coz I don't have a clue..

We would probably have to download Fire Chat or Hearme, I already have, but many XWA gamers havent, I'm pretty sure there both free. We would also probably need permission to do any sort of patch.

Suppose so, but we'd need someone who could actually patch it, d'ya think you could do it?

No, I couldn't patch it. I'm a beginner XWA mission editor/creator, not much of a programer.

not only that we would need to know the language its in. besides you cant edit the actual program from the mission creator as its a part of the game.

YEs, Roger WIlco works well, but it slow the game down, so be sure to have DSL or cable. I use it for JK, XWA, and AoK. it is aweasome.

What is this Rodger Wilco? Is it a voice communications thingy (thingy, very technical terms here) for multiplayer games?

The RAL has used Roger Wilco many time when we play XWA. you can download the program for free. www.rogerwilco.com (http://www.rogerwilco.com) Then someone starts the program and everyone joins, just like a game. It's best if one person hosts the game and another hosts RW.

Hmm, I wouldn't know where to start with the programming of it, and my programming buddies say it would take a while, but I still think it's a really good idea, and there's nothing wrong with the word 'thingy'

Yes, Roger Wilco is all you need. Just make sure your connection is good and you can talk to everyone playing the game.
