Can someone please tell me how many versions/publishers of this title is there!?
As a new fan of this simulation (IL-2+FB+PF) I am confused with all posts about BOB!
And another question is: why is everyone so interested in BOB if there is no online mode!?
Personaly, I think IL-2 - FB - PF is a great game (even with my slow IT connection) http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif))

BOB (aka: Battle of Britain) is the future of the IL2 franchise. When it is due? I dunno.

you are speaking about "BoB:Wings of Victory" that will be released soon.
but that has nothing to do with the BoB of Maddoxgames - wich will not be released before end of 2006.

So to answer your questions.

There will be two versions.

One is call BOB wings over victory and is an upgraded version of an old game that is supposed to have a propper dynamic campaigne. Unfortunatley this version will not support online play (or have crappy online play)

THe second is OLEGS BOB. This will be the next in line of the IL2 franchise. I hope it will be mergeable with pf merged, but i am unsure.

Details of Olegs BOB are still shaky at best. We have no idea if the campaigne will be similar or improved? But one thing you can count on is that Olegs version will continue its excellent online playability.

Now if Oleg could just incorporate the single camapigne of the other BOB into his version. That would be sensational.

Maddox PF and BoB will be for sure never be mergeable.
BoB will be a totaly new engine , there will be now way to make this possible.

Don't cry...this is ultimately good news.

The overall plan that we've come to understand is that BoB is the springboard for a new series that includes the Battle of Britain, the Mediteranian, and eventually back to the East Front and even the Pacific.

The IL-2 engine, which is what PF runs off of, its many years old. Its done more than they probably envisioned it to be able to do and its had its time.

The new engine will definately make is jump for joy and BoB will just be the starting point.

Exactly. If I had to choose between being able to merge with my PF install, or having all the features (such as improved AI, proper 3D cockpits, dynamic weather, etc etc) we've been hanging out for for years implemented - well, you know what I'd choose.

No contest.
