Yeah so I bought this game and only played it for a short while (fixed all settings and stuff). You see my conclusion was that it was so un-enjoyable because of super accurate ack-ack fire, super deadly accurate head-on duels and torpedoes you could drop from 2000 meters and stuff...OK, so I decided to wait for a while until game was playable through a patch and then go for broke!

So wtf is the deal here?!
I bought this game when it was still winter and now it's almost summer...and no patch!
Has someone shot Oleg or what? What gives?
Where's the patch? Do I have to send money somewhere?
(Like pay twice for one game)

Mid-June is what I heard in the grapevine. Lots of work to get a patch, test it, fix the beta versions, compile data, etc etc.
Hey its free.
If you were around for those freebies in IL2...well, I dont mind the wait.I love free planes in the same game
By testing my own setup and frequenting the tech section, I get 30-40fps in cockpit with an old Geforce4 Ti 4200. Out of cockpit is 50% higher all with "excellent" settings.
As far as the super accurate flak and other issues, the smart ones that host are doing things to fix that in their own rigs, I load all the AI ON the map to prevent spawn lag, replace the whirblewinds with russian 25mm's, oh hell, I bet this bores you-its all in the map and tech sections- search search search
I've seen LOW, LOW end PC's run FB fine and mega-puters stutter and lock up. When you put together a game this extensive there are woes.
Can you imagine the BS Oleg had to endure? I bet he didnt want to release the game until late spring, but super powers and the allmighty checkbook prevail.
And I had to get my .02 before this gets locked

Thanks for the info man - and yeah I guess it ain't Oleg's fault after all - he's a pretty damn good game designer - that's what he is!

I just tell myself it's coming, it's coming. I try not to get too hooked up on dates & stuff. I am sure Oleg probably wants to address most if not all the issues before he releases the patch. I dont think he wants to come out with 4 or 5 of them like he did with IL2. I just try to enjoy what I have till then..(and it isnt that hard to do.../i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

well, What I don´t get is why they can´t first make a patch to fix things that were faulty in the game and save all those extra planes for another forthcoming patch. To me it sounds like they are buying time. Who knows those other planes might already be ready, just that they decide to show us the process 3 months late so everyone goes ..."yihaaaa! they are actually giving us more planes for free"....I think it´s a trick.......

Yeah well it's like the 3rd of July today...I really haven't checked the forums (like I've lost my faith in this patch bull shiite). I've only been checking the downloads section, but it empty (as always). Funny thing is that I actually bought this game in the winter and pretty soon came to the conclusion that it was unplayable until mended by a patch...but that patch obviously won't materlialize. Hell yes it's been quite a while now since the game was released and it's still as unrealistic with all the super AI skills as it was on the day of it's release. So wtf is goin' on, man?! Is Oleg held for ransom by the russian mafia (maybe I should go to russia and help him then?).
Has Oleg been abducted by the other games corporation's for making such a good game (well it will be f-kin good after patch) or what gives?

To me this really sucks - yeah I think it's all a big joke by now - I'll sell my game back to the store within two weeks if I can't get the patch...cause life goes on and you can't sit around waiting for things that obviously won't happen.

Oleg`s mistake is making a ONE FREAKING BIG patch instead of two or three smaller ones released sooner.

Is a big mistake anyway.
It seems that this patch will be rather small, and a future addon will come with some more substantial improvements.
BTW, Killjoy, that looks really good.
Maybe someday.....

You just mentioned one of the best songs ever written! /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

I heard Soundgarden's Superunknown two weeks before and had to admit that the best rock album has probably come out already....when all of a sudden I felt really old.

I bought this sim in february cos I heard it was the best available. Then like Tako I found the UFO AI to completely spoil it. AA can hit you any time any place, even you are out of sight and range. AI planes can get you at night in a cloud in a storm. In daylight they can fly like some supernatural force has given them immunity from the laws of physics as it applies to their particular plane.

This is an incredible sim, but it is very badly let down by very fundamental flaws like those mentioned above (there are plenty others).

So I too want to know where is the patch to fix these serious problems/bugs/errors almost half a year after this sim was released??? It's really not good enough is it? Ignore all else, just the UFO flak makes the game unplayable as anything more than a CFS type arcade shooter.

If we don't get a patch my money was wasted. Already like that after this game has been resting unused in my harddrive for nearly six months. I think Oleg is great but ubi are just like other publishers, they rush the product and just want the money. Oleg should go elsewhere with his other work (oh, he did it already, he's with Codemasters now).

Just my thoughts on first post here. /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

you know what i find very odd. ppl saying that they bought this game in the winter and february and those kind of times in this year, while FB wasn't out untill early spring/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif
so tell me ppl where the hell did you buy this game then? cose it sure sounds odd to me

I mainly play online and occasionally offline, there are obviously a few things needing a fix but overall its still a bloody good game, its hard to understand some of the complaints really, Oleg has stated there working on a patch and the game still works just avoid the navel flak /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif so really I dont see whats the problem?

I do agree that a patch to fix some of the bugs that ruin offline play should have been out long ago. But the patch we will get is going to be awesome so....

Anyway, it is no big deal. As I said in another post, this is just a game and there is a whole big world out there that requires a giant, much more important patch. To those being immature, get perspective.

The vast majority of them boil down to this: Too many people have become too accustomed to instant gratification. This isn't solely a problem with the younger generation, but...well, yeah, it is. I wonder if some of them have ever had to wait for anything in their lives.

- the game still works just avoid the navel flak

Wow! The worst thing I ever have to deal with in there is lint!

I still haven't flown all the planes in the game yet. I'm not even sure it needs a patch.


Has everyone else done nothing since the release but fly? (No need to answer that Buzz)

I'm pretty impressed with what I got for my money, and I'm content to wait for a patch if Oleg and the folks at 1C reckon the game would benefit from one.

The patch is done.

FB is not broke. it doesnt need patched. the game works fine. those waiting for a patch to play online are going to still have the same online experience. sure a couple planes will turn a little different and a cannon or two might be more accurate but the game isnt porked. its very complex and works great. why cry about a patch? you should be crying for more planes but not to fix a game that works great. we all will love to see a patch to make things even better but get real he could just walk away with his money and say....NEXT PROJECT !....so dont push yer luck.
