View Full Version : Patch out this week?

While nothing definite has been expressed by the development team is the general impression that the patch should be out this week? I know that guessing is discouraged on this forum, but I suppose in lieu of no official word guessing is the inevitable by-product.

I guess my feeling is that the beta versions have been in testing for awhile, Ivan released the screenshots, and some of the new plane voids are out, so it really can't be that much longer.

Unlike many people, I would actually like to see FB wrapping itself up in terms of final fixes and no more plane additions. With the advent of PF and BOB on the horizon, this particular sim should be coming to at least a degree of completion. I actually look forward to having a final version of FB where you know the FMs, DMs, and other variables will no longer be changing anymore.

I'd like to see IL-2 keep going. Why stop, eh? And what is so important with the latest patch? Other than the dedicated server patch, and I really have no real need for that since I have a beefed up machine dedicated to just serving FB anyway, so, why all the recent 'where is the patch?' threads; though I think this is the first 'no more patches - please' threads I have seen. If not having to see FM's change, or more improvements made, or the fact that new things are coming out is your reason for not wanting FB enhanced, then I must say I am not in that boat with you.

Its pretty obvious that PF and BOB are going to get more attention and most of the new plane development is more likely to wind up in PF after this next wave of free planes.

I don't mind free stuff and the expansion of this game of course, but the assumption here is that every patch or update brings positive changes, which everybody knows is not always the case. At a certain point tinkering with the FM of various planes becomes like Michael Jackson's face. You have to know when to say when.

Of course I am for the fixing of legitimate bugs for as long as it takes, but endless tinkering born of endless b*tching grows old.

We've got plenty more planes in the pipe...and a few that I'm counting on. So long live FB, AEP, and PF in the near future. If they all do what I supect they will then it'll be one super WWII sim!

When I worked retail, and someone asked when something would be back in stock, I'd ALWAYS tell them "two weeks." Why? I had no fricken clue, had no way to learn, and in two weeks they wouldn't remember who had lied to them http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif I had a hunch so I looked at the pic of the new desert Patch map again.

They modded the bend around Tunisia.

The one (1) tiny watering hole is the city of Tunis.

The two dogfight islands are Sardinia and Sicily.

The scale is right about 10 times too small.

The online bug in DM is quite bad. And a lot of servers dont have the resources to run listen servers without warping, so we are all suffering. I personally could do without the new planes for a while if they would just release the fixes to what we currently have...

To be honest I have got to the point where I am past caring http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/52.gif Thats not me saying that I don't like AEP!! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gif I'm just trying to be pragmatic. I guess it will be out when it is out - no point speculating or getting P!ssed off - at least then when it doesn't turn up I am not (too) disappointed. However... it is taking a while.... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

I gotta admit the waiting is getting to me too now. I know it`s taking longer so as to fix absolutely everything, but getting no idea at all or even an approximation of when is hard.

But of course Oleg said it would be out at the release of AEP, didn`t he? And that`s gone by the wayside (though I know why). Still, even though I predicted 2 months after the ORR debacle, I didn`t actually believe it would be 2 months! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/blink.gifIt`s certainly getting there!
