IL-2 Sturmovik v1.2 with Open Voice
Ubi Soft has announced that a newer version of upgrade 1.2 is being made available to the community. This version - 1.2ov - is completely identical and compatible with the already released version 1.2 except that version 1.2ov has an open folder structure for radio chatter voice files and corresponding HUD messages. This means that members of the community can modify and replace the existing voice files and radio chatter text messages. Note that if you do work on modifying the voice files and radio chatter messages you do so at your own risk. Please keep back-ups of both the “Samples” and “i18n” directories somewhere on you hard disk in case some of your changes go wrong. Full details of this version of the upgrade, how to modify the files and to download the upgrade can be found here.
