<SiN Episodes: Emergence> This is a point entity available in Sin Episodes. Used for sending police radio messages from friendly NPCs to the player. Takes a speaker, message, and a priority. Inputs allow changing these variables and Dispatch issues the message. As the player traverses through the levels, the companions Jessica and JC will helpout via these police radio messages when not directly present; about what the current objective is and to remind the player in certain intervals of this, when a hectic situation unfolds or just for commenting on something of interest seen in the game world like a poster or scenery. For a list of all the messages available in the game and how to use the entity, refere to the list of radio messages page for more information.
