Radio Ga Ga

Radio Ga Ga

"You gave them all those old time stars
Through wars of worlds invaded by Mars
You made 'em laugh, you made 'em cry
You made us feel like we could fly"

About this little mod

This mod is a response to this legit issue report.


1) Radio tracks will play regardless of the "Setup > Sound Setup > General > Play Music" setting status

  ...and remember...

- You must have some tracks in the \samples\Music\Radio\ folders
- The "Misc > Realistic Navigation" difficulty setting must be enabled to have access to beacons
- You must set Next/Previous beacon control keys (Misc section)
- The mission must have a radio station object nearby, army=none or army=yours
- If you are far from the antenna you will only get static noise

2) Radio tracks will have a random STARTING order - no random playback of tracks, no, no, no (*) - tracks will play in order. This change also impacts other music folders such as TakeOff, InFlight, Crash...

(*) Why? If you only have three tracks a random solution could select the same track three times in a row. Implementing it right would require an elaborated, unnecessary in my opinion, solution and I opted for this alternative.


(!) Only tested in IL-2 1946 v4.12.2
(!) You must have SAS Common Utils (already included in BAT) for this mod to work

EDIT - This mod is already included in BAT 4.1.1. Update your BAT!

Great addition.
I have just the right campaign in the pipeline for this. Lots of navigating, lots of in between where you can listen to music.

I'll put it into the next BAT update.
