Yup. the patch stops working Dec1 2003.

BUT if you turn your clocks back it runs great.

Return your clocks for normal time to resume

surfing the web or you will get some strange results.

Nothing about this oleg thing surprises me. What do you think his next little trick will be?. I've gone right off it. He gives us more...yeah right!! and more bugs. I don't suppose it was worth mentioning to the public he keeps on a string, that it had a time limit.Shudder to think what else we haven't or not going to be told.

I went out and bought new software(not UBi)and how refreshing it was to install it, it ran just as reported...and guess what!!...no bugs??..no patches needed!!..no tricks!!.

Wisen up guys. I have??

FB is neither the 1st or last game to ever require patches.

This is standard. It happened with the previous beta. I made a mention this might happen, but I guess few saw the post.

No reason to crack up over it. It`s a beta, a test, if you will and subject to Oleg cancelling it when the Final (which we are entitled to) is ready.

The 1.21 will not be self destructive. No surprise to me.

Good catch Seafire (and others)! I sure as heck wouldn't have thought of advancing the calendar to look for time bugs.

BTW, just to follow up on my PACMAN post. I am now seeing the limitations of the new FM in PACMAN. The ghosts appear to do too well in the vertical and rarely overheat. I also notice that the weight gain and performance loss after eating numerous cherries, strawberries, and ghosts is not modeled correctly in the game IMHO.

Baaaaah!

I am going back to IL2 FB.

its a bit sucky about the time limit, but it also indicates the patch was due out earlier

Ahhhh, a time limit! ha ha....

That explains it, just tried to launch FB and nothing. Good job I backed up IL2 folder as instructed. Now back with 1.11 and will wait patiently for final patch...

Would have been nice telling us in advance about the time limit...

Most Beta tests have a built in time limit. And some of you think that its our right to have patches. It isn't...its a priviledge. Be calm, paitent, and happy that the Beta was a public thing.

There are a lot of Monday night squads on HL. For these to fly, they will have to muck with their clocks; all any of them need to do is forget to return the clock to where it should be, and things that need to be run when the machine is idle will likely not run at the correct times. A backup set is often created using the time/datestamp as the filename. If you get a backup set mislabeled and overwritten, and you happen to need to restore that set, you're quite simply screwed. It was completely unnecessary to time-limit the RC, especially if they weren't sure when they'd have the final ready for distribution.

LMAO,

I just finished reinstalling IL-2 FB for the 4th time and wondered why the heck it wasn't working anymore. It worked on the initial reinstall, worked after 1.11 patch, then CTD's without loading after the 1.2 BETA patch.

I should have checked here first. Oh well, 1.11 it is then! Gonna miss my P-51 and Zero though http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif
