If I recall correctly, some people whined that the moon was always full. Then some luftwhining Revi experts used the size of the moon to "prove" that the Revi's reticle was not the right size... or maybe they proved that the moon was the wrong size.... I forget. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

I used to recieve PM's from Oleg,When I would send them usefull Info.and now you very rarely see a post from Oleg. I also miss the old forum when I would find great tip's and friendly help, Instead of flaming at one's Opinion or Question and filling the board with useless fighting over { ATI-NIVIDIA ---- AMD-INTEL , 109-YAK -- Trim on a Slider } - "Give it a break and get a Life!"

As Hunter82 wrote ,
"The negative tones from most users make it a very unfriendly environment to be part of. I don't come here to walk away p i s s ed off or stressed out, which is what is happening now...."

And I can't say it any better than that ! Alright let the childish flaming begin - JK-1

It was? /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif I remember someone who had an unstable underpowered system and poor dial up with none of the il2 upgrades posting his dxdiag in tech support praying there was an answer. Remember?/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif I do./i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I've been here from the start , and over the last year or so I have watched this place degrade down to nothing..

I tell other people where to go and get updates and the first thing they say , is there any place else I can get them.. or I made a post there asking something and got pounded with post after post about what I asked..

That is why most of the oldtimers have gone to other sites.. like me..

Oh I still come here and look at the up dates once a week and I even come in and try to find some good post that I can read..

But most of the time it is just pop in and out I go lol..

And that is a shame because a good site will keep a sim selling and make it better..

I don't blame Oleg for not posting at all , whith what I have read on some of them.. I would tell them to take a leap and go on my way making newer and better ones.

But hey it is UBI,s site and they can do what they want .

IL-2: Better sim. Less style, more substance.

IMO aside from some of the FM problems FB is better than IL2. IL2 is still a top notch sim no doubt...but I recently went back and flew it for a few hours and there are some differences. FB has better graphics IMO..... I think that overall the FMs inFB are better but some planes could be improved.... it is still so far ahead of anything else out though in spite of its minuses....thats why even before they improved the P-47 I still flew it and enjoyed it because as bad as it was it was still the best P-47 in Simdom. If we could get some of the IL2 sounds in FB it would be good although I do like most of FBs sound. Just the in cockpit sounds are bizzare to me. When I came to IL2 it was a whole different world as I had been in CFS for a while. I think the demise of this place began when the PL was shut down..... for better or worse it added a certain flavor to the forum...things just got out of hand and next thing you know it was gone..... Now since we cant talk all kinds of diverse stuff it is kind of boring in here..... I still come out of habit I guess and I have to admit I still like it here. I visit other forums but this is the home base forum for me. Just the other day I had a tech problem and I posted about it and got an answer within 11 minutes. I had my problem solved and my son was playing Spiderman on his computer about 2 hrs later. Those are the kind of things that keep me coming back. I am so sick of all the crying and moaning so I just try to stay away from those threads..but there are still some good ones..... and I feel I have made some good aquaintances here..... TC...locoS...Enk....Copperhead to name a few but there are many more.... I miss the old PL flame fests and the interesting political discussions we used to have....the battles between James and Heavy..... and the little monkey in Sky Chimps posts.... I will probably be flying in FB till Oleg or someone comes up with a CGI calibre WW2 sim that has all the nice features of IL2/IL2FB like the views and tracks, the diverse loadouts..... some may complain about the loadouts and they could be better but in other sims you had the choice of ammo, less ammo or no ammo. FMs? Well try flopping around in the sky in CFS at 100% instead of stalling into the ground....or bursting into a million pieces when you come within a few yards of an oncoming plane...instead of the REAL close calls in FB when you decide you dont want to play virtual chicken and both of you veer off at the last minute. Once I actually shredded a rudder with my prop in this sim..... This forum may have gone to the dogs in many respects but IL2 AND FB both still rule in my book and we are still coming.....that says something right? If we concentrate on the sim and using it as it is...however it is at the moment, because we are probably one of the few communities who still get regular..(well not regular but we still get them.../i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif ) updates....not from third parties but from the developers of the sim itself....and stop with the pettiness and nationalistic insults..(although I must admit they have always been here...it was the ONE thing that I really just didnt like about coming here from day one...I think I even had a few hot "debates" on the subject with some members..LOL)....maybe we can improve this place and make it more like it is supposed to be instead of the bitc# and moan fest it often seems like.


....................my 2 cents for what it's worth.

It was bad back then too if you all remember, but not this bad. Its not really the users either its the handling of the website, announcements, and problems in the game.

Also the closing of the PL has just moved all the junk to GD and ORR. It makes no sense they close the PL but put a link for ACOMPLETEWASTEOFSPACE which is a great laugh to visit there now and then.

IL2: classic game, and the trim flowed freely.

FB: speed bump on the way to a better sim, crappy trim.

The original IL2 was da bomb! All the FM's were cool. Also the P-39 was a devil to fly BUT if you got the handle of it, nobody could get you down!
