INSTALLING PACIFIC FIGHTERSTM
Start your computer's operating system. Note: If the Autorun menu does not automatically appear, double-click on the My Computer icon on your computer, and then double-click the icon that corresponds to your computer's CD-ROM drive. [. . . ] Therefore, you will not be able to send radio commands to your squadmates or hear any radio chatter during the mission.
To eliminate the game subtitles appearing on-screen for pilots' voices: 1. Find the NoSubTitles line and change the 0 to 1: NoSubTitles = 1
This option enables you to switch off these unpleasant physiological reactions, though if you do so, the level of realism lowers considerably. · Wind and Turbulence: Selecting this option disrupts the conditions you would face while flying your plane. Normally, side wind influences takeoff and landing, and turbulence prevents smooth flying. · No Instant Success: If this option is enabled, you have to complete each mission before continuing to the next. If this option is disabled, then you may begin the next mission even if you haven't completed your current mission. · Realistic Landings: If this option is selected, you might break the chassis on rough landings. · Takeoff and Landing: These are two of the most difficult elements of flying, especially landing. With this option, you can eliminate the necessity of bothering with it. · Cockpit Always On: When this option is selected, you cannot make your cockpit invisible. Flying with an invisible cockpit is nice and easy because your field of vision is clear. · External Views: Some people think that taking a detached view of oneself is cheating because a real pilot has no such opportunity. In Pacific Fighters, you can deselect this option, which naturally adds realism. · No Padlock: Padlock is a mode of vision in which the direction of your glance follows the chosen target. There has been a lot of discussion about the realism of such an approach; you can switch it off here if you want to. · Head Shake: Aircraft often experience intense shake, which means that the head of the pilot also shakes, hindering your field of vision. · No Icons: If this option is deselected, each object in the air bears a special icon. Icons make an object much more noticeable and indicate the nationality of the object by color. In addition, a special inscription on the icon indicates the type of aircraft and its distance from you. Our ability to perceive our actual environment far surpasses our ability to perceive its virtual analogue in terms of resolution and the field of vision, even if all other conditions are similar. However, in real life, there are no icons on targets, and you can deselect the option if you feel like it. · Realistic Gunnery: Deselecting this option produces two effects.
