Default allowing radio messages to stay on screen longer...

Is there an edit that would allow radio messages to stay on the screen longer?

Thank you.

edit: just tried the text enlarger 2160p...really great! Hope there is a way to allow it to stay onscreen longer.

OK, in mul_chat.lua, search for "diffTime > 10", and change the 10 to the number of seconds you want the chat to stay up.

C:\Program Files\Eagle Dynamics\DCS World OpenBeta\MissionEditor\modules
I changed the 10 to 20 and then tried 60, neither change allowed the simulator to load beyond 10%, then it froze. I'm not sure I found the line you're referring to.
Perhaps it's another line that needs editing?
Edit: I don't think that line exists [diffTime > 10]

Oops, I misread your question. The instructions I posted were to increase the time the CHAT messages stay on the screen with the chat enhancer installed. I don't know offhand how to do it for the radio messages.

Thanks anyway for this improvement...I'm sure the script is in there somewhere.

BTW, diffTime > 10 showed up the first time I looked for it to make the changes but now I can't seem to find it...like the script just disappeared. I checked the other copies and versions of DCS World that I never modified and couldn't find it there either...weird.

edit:Solved
diffTime > 10 is scripted only in the chat mod not the text enlarger mod and since I only have the text enlarger installed at present, that is why I cannot see it.

That's because that line of code is one I wrote for the chat enhancer.

Anyway, I found something that should change the duration of the radio messages. In gameMessages.lua, find "pLentaRadio:addMessage(a_text, a_duration)", line 136. Then you can multiply "a_duration" by a number. For example, if you change "a_duration" to "a_duration*2", the radio messages should stay twice as long. I haven't tested this though.

The sim started but the duration stayed the same.

function addRadioMessage(a_text, a_duration)
if pLentaRadio then
pLentaRadio:addMessage(a_text, a_duration*2)
