Secondly when you transmit you don't get a transmission tone. All you get is a hint message saying "Transmitting SW (short wave) on 123mhz"
Third, you can't set radios to a specific ear. This can cause sever internal ear bleeds with cross comms.
Four, the radios interface textures look like really poor quality photos.
Five, you dont 'switch' radios. The binding for short range and long range radios are different (Caps and Ctrl + caps respectively). The key binding is not obvious and is really cumbersome and can prevent you from moving if you are stationary and start transmitting. Also instead of having just 1 binding to open the radio config menu, it's 2 different bindings again (again not obvious key binding either Ctrl + P and Alt + P)
Sure it's acre lite, but honestly I would rather wait for ACRE2.
As eighty said, this mod EATS the bandwidth of the servers with all the data it's passing around.

Where are the quotes since I had a look through and I saw several saying it does work, one even for 100 people.
At this stage azer the general consensus is for games under 10 people this mod works, but as soon as we get more than 10 everything goes to hell. The TS server doesn't crash, the Game locks up, freezes then crashes (Apparently according to comments on BI forums)
If it eats up bandwidth perhaps this is a mod we can run for Tac nights only. not being able to run proper tac nights because ACRE might get shotgun diarrhea blows more than a mod that only has some of the functionality of ACRE.
Unless someone has an idea of ACRE 2's progress perhaps we should seriously look at this mod? I mean most of the issues here are probably ones we can code out for a private release right?
