I'm still a Noob - ish.

This site cracks me up. So many people take the 'the glass is half-full' approach.

Everytime I turn FB on I think 'yes - I can play a cutting edge WW2 sim, with some of the best models available on the consumer market, and with a high degree of historical accuracy'

Yeah - I know:
The sound isn't great
P-39 is uber
The roll rate isn't right
Etc, etc, etc.......

Right or wrong these gripes are valid - but take a check, IT'S only a game!

Have you designed a better one?

It's no suprise that Oleg and co keep quiet - imagine you had spent YEARS on this project, pouring heart and soul into it as your JOB! Then look at the contents of most forums.

I wouldn't be best pleased. I'd be gutted if he thought 'sod this - I'm just going to make easy cash on rubbish clone FPS'.

And UBI - well they are a BUSINESS. They have your money and don't really need to care to much, they could dump this tital.

For me I started playing sims on my 48k spectrum. I have no complaint about this game - it has great reply value and for the amount off hours play I have had was worth every penny twice over.

A patch - great thanks, better than having to wait for a new game. Just think how CRAP 90% of games out there are.

So FFS - smile and enjoy it, if you don't then you know where the off switch is.

Lets let optimism, respect, and enjoyment, outweigh the moaning.




I was to take responsability for the newcomer Erich Hartmann. I looked at him and thought: Oh my God, what are they sending us now? What a baby!

If you think this forum's bad, go take a look at the Rainbow 6 Ravenshield forums. I end up trying to slit my wrists with the butter knife every time I go in there!!

Thanks for the heads-up. I'll steer well clear of it.

At least we don't have a bunch of obsessed gun nuts wreaking havoc amongst the IL-2 forums. I'm not complaining because FB has finally been improved to a truly enjoyable state.

True all true.

This is a well worn thread - but I hadn't checked this site for two weeks opened it the other day and there were just loads of people moaning.

I think we are LUCKY with this sim - I know most of it is meant in a good hearted fashion, but still......

But RESPECT due to ALL IL2 crew.....
