And about lag on voice comands ???

As a formation leader, I cant tell much about it, only what you had told me.

There is a delay between the IL2 and the TS. The TS is slow than the game…, so we have a problem here. For example, Nepe told me that when he eard the comand voices, he must start the movements at (1) and not at (go).

What we should do to improve this or to adapt to this situation issue???

need your opinions.

As long as we know whats happening, I see no problem. Probably the best solution would be that leader performs the action 1 second after “Go”, while the rest do it exactly at “Go”
